Default ‘The Long and Winding Road’

Okay, maybe Paul envisioned a more modest, stripped-down arrangement for “The Long and Winding Road” than what appeared on the Let It Be album. But I think that Phil Spector’s orchestration was pretty good and fit the song — choir and all. I certainly don’t think Spector’s arrangement is as bad as Paul has been saying over the years; not bad enough to signal “the end of the Beatles,” as Paul said when he first heard it. (On the other hand, maybe I’m just used to it.)
