The final album of new Beatle material was Let It Be.  The title itself suggests that perhaps the search for clues and hidden meanings should stop and all should just let it be.  But due to the nature of the very album itself, it's very difficult. To begin with it's the only Beatles LP framed in black.  All four Beatles are on the cover but only Paul’s picture has the blood-red background, the others are white.

The title song on the LP is appropriate as one of the final clues presented to us the song sings about the heavenly “mother Mary” comes to me in times of trouble, even on that fateful November night in 1966.

 “Let it Be” 

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be.

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be.

Let it be, let it be. Yeah

There will be an answer, let it be.

And when the night is cloudy,
there is still a light that shines on me,
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.


Let it be, let it be.

There will be an answer, let it be.

Let it be, let it be,

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

A Little history of the "Let it Be" album.

Let It Be is the twelfth and final original album by The Beatles. It 
was released on May 8, 1970 by the band's own Apple Records label, 
shortly after the group's announced breakup
.

Most of Let It Be was recorded in January 1969, before the recording 
and release of the album Abbey Road.

By late 1968 Paul McCartney was eager for the Beatles to perform in 
public again, two years after they stopped touring. The group 
announced plans for three shows in December 1968 at the Roundhouse in 
north London. This did not come about, and the idea evolved for a 
single concert at an undecided location in January 1969.

The group began rehearsals at Twickenham Studios on January 2, 1969. 
No multi-track recordings were made of these sessions, as the Beatles 
were rehearsing for the live show rather than attempting to record an 
album. A number of possible locations for the live show were discussed 
during the Twickenham rehearsals, with the leading candidates being a 
Roman amphitheater in North Africa or a cruise ship
.

Everyone involved in the Twickenham rehearsals considered them to be 
disastrous. By the third day of rehearsal the group openly discussed 
whether they should break up. Lennon had all but withdrawn creatively 
from the Beatles, seldom contributing even to the arrangements of his 
own songs. Harrison was increasingly resentful; while he was treated 
respectfully by musical colleagues such as Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton, 
when working within the Beatles his songs usually were either derided 
or ignored. McCartney's attempts to hold the band together and rally 
spirits came across as controlling. The constant presence of Lennon's 
companion and artistic partner Yoko Ono -- who often spoke on Lennon's 
behalf as he sat silently by -- was a major source of tension
.

Apple Rooftop Concert Jan 30 1969

The live concert idea culminated with the Beatles and Preston 
performing January 30, on the rooftop of the Beatles' Apple Building 
at 3 Savile Row before a small audience of friends and employees. The 
performance was cut short by the police after complaints about noise. 
Several of the songs recorded during the rooftop concert made it onto 
the final album.
