Most everybody on the planet has Beatles music in some form or another. So why not get a cover version instead by grabbing a tune from The Ultimate Beatles Cover Band. That’s the name of the band. Seriously. Did I go too fast? You can go pay over the top prices on iTunes of course. That’s your problem. I guess there was some scuttlebutt on a early leak but I’m sure it was done on purpose to fire up the intertweebs. You guys fell for it.
Tomorrow Never Knows (mp3) – From Revolver by The Beatles from the record More Beatles Gold by the band – The Ultimate Beatles Cover Band. Did I loose you yet?
Here is an Artist in full, making an ernest record that lost all that polish, and if he had to go in his twilight years this is a nice way to step out. He layers and steps up the production in all the right places catching up with the best alternative tricks but then again, whom taught whom? As force of habit I don’t read press releases, I may glance at the top level of an AMG review in some cases but in this case I just gave it a listen as I am NO where near the type of would buy something mainstream like this. Pretending i don’t know who the Beatles are would totally silly but ignoring this summer release even more preposterous. Hard to do but this record has some of the things we don’t like to admit we like about the 70’s. The bass playing is awesome on “See your sunshine” in a very lenny kravitz sort of way so easy to feel the connection of a roots sound that has come back for McCartney. Guys in his years would sound like Bacherach(spelln’?), but not in his case. The kick-off track almost sounds like bloc party with it’s minimalist and fair play with acoustic instruments. Tasty bits of smooth prog rear their head from time to time but extremely solid surprise to find this on Emusic! So try and avoid picking it up at Starbucks if you can help it eventhough we all know they have the 30-40-50-60 something’s number. This will open a whole new world for you kids. Thanks.
