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.)
Chatter on, son, chatter on. A touch of the writer’s cramp will soon sort you out.
