RE: Get Back eventually released as Let It Be -

...he was given the shittiest load of badly recorded shit, with a lousy feeling toward it, ever. And he made something out of it. He did a great job. [J.Lennon]

When EMI informed Martin that he would not get a production credit because Spector produced the final version, he commented "I produced the original, and what you should do is have a credit saying 'Produced by George Martin, over-produced by Phil Spector' [G.Martin]

The majority opinion is always... "don't know -- don't care." Knowing and caring and liking, defined as commercial consumption, will narrow the niche to >1% market share.
