ose Kortozirkuito's (and the rest of his blog all-star team, pleae check http://tommentonenlacuadra.blogspot.com.es/ for other greatness....) we delve back into Part two of "The Other Beatles" cover project with cover version renderings of "Help!", "Rubber Soul", and "Beatles For Sale".... excellent work Jose and friends, and I thank you again for generouslly allowing my re-use of them (numbers for the first part were great!) Oh, please understand some of these are in Spanish, as you know I just LOVE foreign language rock, if you don't, well, sorry....
Couple highlights, let's start with "Beatles For Sale".....Marianne Faithfull doing "I'm a Loser" could be written to order, and David Ball's "I'll Follow the Sun" is interesting enough.....the original "For Sale" had a lot of covers on it anyway, but the album is still faithfully reconstructed, including Wanda Jackson with "Honey Don't" (A Carl Perkins tune that the Beatles covered on "For Sale"), and the Beach Boys take on "Rock N Roll Music" (Chuck Berry)....solid effort.
We get a really mixed up grab bag on "Rubber Soul"...."Michelle" gets an interesting treatment from Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals. The Yonder Mountain String Band has a fine "Think For Yourself". Yellow Matter Custard, a triubte band I assume, deliver a surprising "Nowhere Man".....hell even Nancy Sinatra turns up with "Run For Your Life" (quite good).....
I don't want to talk TOO much about this, this is Jose & friend's project, if you enjoy it, visit his blog and TELL HIM how much, he is a great guy and enjoys hearing compliments about his work. Once there, also, you will find TONS of great stuff.....so great you may never come back here (please no, you can fit us BOTH in!)
