Record Roundup is back this week after a long break with a mini-documentary on the Apple Records single “Let It Be,” originally released in March 1970. “Let It Be” was to be the last single by The Beatles before their official split the following month. Find out some additional details about this record, the break-up and more, before I place a copy of the disc on my portable turntable and play it through for you to listen to just like it was done in the old days.
