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. 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

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.

1 Down By The Docks

3 Norwegian Wood

4 Ticket To Ride

6 I’m Only Sleeping

7 Mother Nature’s Son
Featuring – Kristian Leontiou, The Imagined Village
8 Strawberry Fields

9 Blackbird

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).

I wish the news link had a video of the performance. When I looked on YouTube, there are many videos ABOUT him, but none that actually show the video that supposedly “went viral”.

I couldn’t find an active link in the article (and I just looked again), @Ahhh Girl, and nor could PR. Maybe the link is gone.

I still can’t see an active video on that page for his rendition of “Imagine ” — but (ironically) the “bonus video” of Adam performing “Hallelujah” works fine.
