The Analogues are famous for their Beatles performances, but I hadn’t seen this one before today. Perhaps not as technically difficult to reproduce, it certainly asks a lot more of them as musicians! A sincere and great act of love in musical form.…..PiplYL897o

Standout tracks for me were While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Everybody’s Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey where they got a little bit cireative at the end with the soloing. One of the hallmarks of the Analogues is their fidelity to the instrumentation and sometimes it’s very instructive to see just what’s there and whats not. Revolution 1 is just held together with bass, acoustic and distorted guitar warblings with backing from drums and brass!  I was very interested in the bass choices of course, a lot more Fender Jazz used than I expected. The SG guitar really shines as a texture here, again, surprising to me, as I expected a lot more Lucy featured. The Casinos show their versatility too. Rather wisely they went for a video montage to accompany Revolution 9 , giving a helpful visual interpretation to the aural collage.
