The Beatles Finale: Let it Be
The word had been out for about a month that the legendary Beatles were splitting up, when fans were able to buy what would be their 12th and last official release. The cover featured an individual photo of each Beatle, bordered by black under just three words, Let It Be. While few would consider it one of the Beatles' best, there are still some undeniable classics, good rockers and some clues to the dissolution of the most famous band in music history.
In this program, producer Paul Ingles presents the 5th in his series of programs deconstructing great Beatles albums. His panel of musicians, music writers and Beatle fans includes: Anthony DeCurtis- writer for Rolling Stone Magazine, Los Angeles Times Critic Ann Powers, Jim DeRogatis of the Chicago Sun-Times, Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune, Beatle book authors Steve Turner and Richie Unterberger, and musicians David Gans, Jon Spurney, Richard Goldman and Shawn Colvin.
