Let It Be (LP)





This appears to be merely an US acetate copy of the standard Phil Spector mixed album. It was auctioned March 2004 on eBay.

The auction description below states that four songs have different mixes than the released version. I find this unlikely since neither Barrett nor Lewisohn document any pre-final compilation.
