long and winding road You left me standing here a long, long time ago Don't leave me waiting here, lead me to you door. But still they lead me back to the long and winding road You left me standing here a long, long time ago Don't keep me waiting here (Don't keep me waiting), lead me to your door Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. About The Long and Winding Road. Written by Paul McCartney, the song is a reflection on the journey of The Beatles. McCartney was extremely dissatisfied with the original version released on Let It Be mixed by Phil Spector who included a string arrangement over the original ballad. In 2003 Paul re-mixed the song and the rest of the album as Let It B. aked removing Spector’s production (check: The Long and Winding Road (Naked Version) ).
The Beatles recorded several takes of The Long and Winding Road on 26 January 1969 and again on 31 January with McCartney on lead vocals and piano, John Lennon on bass guitar, George Harrison on guitar, Ringo Starr on drums, and Billy Preston on Rhodes piano. This was during a series of sessions for an album project then known as Get Back. Lennon, usually the band’s rhythm guitarist, played bass only occasionally and made several mistakes on the recording, prompting some writers, such as Ian MacDonald, to postulate that the disenchanted Lennon’s ragged bass playing was intentional
The Beatles recorded this in January 1969 as a fairly simple ballad. By 1970, The Beatles were breaking up and and Phil Spector was brought in to go through the tapes and produce the album. Spector was known for his "Wall Of Sound" recording technique, where he added many instruments and layered the tracks to create a very full sound. On this track, he took out most of The Beatles instruments and added a string section and choir (The Mike Sammes Singers). The result was very different from what the group originally had in mind.
