Sound engineer Geoff Emerick writes in his book Here, There, and Everywhere that, in spite of being in one of the most successful music groups of all time, John Lennon was very insecure about his voice and was constantly looking for overdubs and fuzzy guitars to mask it.

When Paul McCartney had the original tapes stripped down to their essentials for Let It Be… Naked, we got to really hear John’s voice on this song for the first time.

It’s incredible.

    … just amazing… his essence is revealed in this naked version of this song… I think that this would have been an even more storied and admired song had it been released as it is recorded here…
