  3. Across the Universe
  4. I Me Mine
  5. Dig It
  6. Let It Be
  7. Maggie Mae
  8. I've Got a Feeling
  9. One After 909
  10. The Long and Winding Road
  11. For You Blue
  12. Get Back
All tracks sourced from the Japan Toshiba-EMI CD (TOCP-51123).

The Original Get Back Album (Glyn Johns Produced)
  1. One After 909
  2. Medley: I'm Ready (aka Rocker)
  3. Don't Let Me Down
  4. Dig a Pony
  5. I've Got a Feeling
  6. Get Back
  7. For You Blue
  8. Teddy Boy
  9. Two of Us
  10. Maggie Mae
  11. Dig It
  12. Let It Be
  13. The Long and Winding Road
  14. Get Back (Reprise)
All tracks sourced from the 2021 Let It Be Super Deluxe edition (24-bit/96khz).

The January 30, 1969 Rooftop Concert

  1. Intro
  2. Don't Let Me Down
  3. I've Got a Feeling
  4. One After 909
  5. Dig a Pony
  6. God Save the Queen
  7. Get Back
  8. Outro
Tracks 1, 6, and 8 extracted from The Complete Rooftop Concert 1969 bootleg.
Track 2 sourced from the 2003 Let It Be... Naked LP (24-bit/192khz).
Tracks 3, 4, and 5 sourced from the Let It Be CD (Japan Toshiba-EMI TOCP-51123).
Track 7 sourced from the 1996 Anthology 3 LP (24-bit/192khz).


This ended up being quite the undertaking. I was first struck by how thin the Let It Be album sounded. I compared with the "Big Blue Box" LP and found that the Toshiba-EMI CD sounded identical. Good news for how well the Toshiba-EMI CDs are made, but bad news for getting a truly nice remix of the Spector produced songs. Thankfully, we have the original Get Back album, which has a much more robust sound and depth. I was amazed that they did not include the Rooftop concert on the box set. Maybe they are waiting for the new documentary. At any rate, I compiled the best versions I could find to approximate the concert using single takes and some fun additions. Again, I'm trying to create the set that I wanted to see released.

The remaining singles can be found on my remix of Past Masters, Volume 2. I will be combing through the demos, outtakes, and alternate versions to see what I can put together as a companion album. Any advice here would be greatly appreciated.

Enjoy!
