David Gilmour has a cover of "Here, There And Everywhere" that's included with October issue of Mojo. It's quite lovely.

WOW. 

Did this beatlemaniacs_02_gif for the entire first minute.  

That's the best Beatles cover I've ever heard, by one of my favourite musicians ever. And one of my favourite Beatles songs ever. I'm on Cloud 9.

A new album, out today (at least in the UK) has folk-style versions of Beatles songs. It's called A Hard Day's Night Treatment, although the songs aren't from any one era or album.

There are sound clips of most of the songs on the label's website. Some sound rather nice; others less so. And I don't know what the Down By The Docks song is supposed to relate to.

Looks interesting, thanks Joe.

Personally, I'd be less interested in the folky covers of Beatles songs that were already folky from the start (Norwegian Wood, Mother Nature's Son, I Will, etc.) -- and more intrigued by how musicians could "folkify" Beatles songs that were rather unfolkish (e.g., Ticket To Ride, Fixing A Hole, I Want To Hold Your Hand).

Imagine a folky version of Helter Skelter...!

I gave a listen to the brief excerpts they had of each, and the only one I markedly like is the very cool cover of "Flying".

I just wish they'd say on the website who performed & conceived that particular cover...

Sheila E. can do no wrong (as far as I know). She's not only the only female timbalero, she's one of the best -- even better than her father, Coke Escovedo (but not as good as the greatest of them all, Chepito).
