      Universal Music Canada has just announced that the Beatles will release a super-deluxe viny box-set edition of their final album release, Let It Be--the one with "Get Back"--on October 15. (In case you didn't know, Abbey Road was actually the last album the Beatles ever recorded, but it was released eight months before Let It Be.)

      Hardcore Beatles freaks will be thrilled to know that the super-deluxe edition also features 27 previously unreleased outtakes, studio jams, and rehearsals.

      Other goodies include a four-track EP, a 14-track Get Back stereo LP mix compiled by engineer Glyn Johns in May 1969, and a 100-page hardcover book with an introduction by Paul McCartney, track-by-track recording information, and previously unseen photos.
