The Beatles album, Let it Be… Naked from 2003 could arguably be considered the 'original' of the Let It Be album, recorded in 1969 & then shelved; later remixed & added to by Phil Spector in 1970, after the band's split.
The unqualified claim is that Paul McCartney didn't like the 'over-produced' Spector version & wanted to release it in its original form, without the choirs, orchestras & 'wall-of-sound' trademark that Spector had added to the 1969 original.
…though I cannot resist adding this quote from John Lennon, in defence of the Spector version…
"He was given the shittiest load of badly recorded shit with a lousy feeling to it ever, and he made something of it... When I heard it, I didn't puke."
This could actually be, by a quirk of the way Gold & Platinum record awards have changed over the years, the only case where the lesser-known version [...Naked] strictly went Platinum before the main version…
...Gold & Platinum records were first awarded in 1973, after the Beatles had split up, so none of their original releases qualified. There was a rule change in 2013 that allowed sales from 1994 onwards to count towards gold or platinum status. 13 Beatles albums qualified on that data alone, 25+ years after their original sale.

An unqualified statement1 in the Liverpool City Portal claims
The Let It Be LP reportedly shipped 3.2 million copies in 13 days representing a gross retail value of nearly $26 million (Billboard article, June 6, 1970).
