Record Machine is an ongoing project where I document my vinyl collection. Photos of varying quality, compulsive list-makin', inventory-takin'. (Somewhat predictably, this is where I nicked the title for the project.)
The Beatles - LET IT BE
This is among a handful of Beatles albums in my... possession seems like the wrong word. My dad, music fan that he was, did not ever really get into the Beatles for whatever reason, so the albums are my mom's. My mom doesn't play records anymore, and her old ones are alphabetized into my dad's collection which is now under my care. They're still on the same shelves, is what I'm saying. I don't have my own shelving for them yet.
From the back cover: "This is a new phase BEATLES album... essential to the content of the film, LET IT BE was that they performed live for many of the tracks; in comes the warmth and the freshness of a live performance; as reproduced for disc by PHIL SPECTOR."
Capital letters theirs. I don't know if this is a first printing or not, but it was most certainly purchased roughly around the time of its release.
