“The Long and Winding Road”

Here’s my nit to pick with McCartney: He notoriously hated Phil Spector’s overblown production on this ballad, and the spare “Let It Be … Naked” version was released as a corrective, yet when he plays the song live, he has Wix synthesize the Spector orchestrations. At least there’s no choir.
