The "Other Beatles" Part 5

0
This is the final installment of this great set created by a great friend of mine, Jose Kortozirkuito and his wonderful Spanish All-Star Blogging team, although, I will ADD a bonus of afterwards of a bunch of Beatles covers that I found, not going to be organized into albums, sorry, a "Labor of 'Like'", rather than of love perhaps, but as I've told ya before, please go to jose's blog (http://tommentonenlacuadra.blogspot.com) and compliment him on this great effort (and while you are there, check out the other great stuff he has there....by the way, ONCE AGAIN, I offer up a huge "GRACIAS" to Jose and his great team for compiling these, AND, mostly, for giving me permission to repost these on my site.......it's an honor and a privlege to be permited to do so.

Tonight's cover projects focus on the "Let It Be" album, and as well as the two "Past Masters" sets. The quality that has been evident thooughout the first four sets is carried on here, makin this one hell of a job, I've compared it once before to Brian's Dyaln Epic, it's that kind of monumnetal.

"The Other Let It Be" gives us another memory of David Bowie, with his "Across the Universe". Aretha Franklin turns in as good a version of the title track I've evr heard. Beth Orton's "Dig It" is a fine surprise, and Ike & Tina Turner's "Get Back" is frantic, they used to do it regularly live in thier shows.

"The Other Past Masters Volume 1" of course will have some overlap with some of the other sets, but is is MATERIAL overlap, anyway, NOT artist overlap, in other words, we get SECOND cover versions of some of the Beatles classics. Little Richards' (original) "Long Tall Sally" is a wild classic, The Inmates take on "I'll Get You" isn't too bad, I think the highlight may be the closing "I'm Down" from the Wailers......as always, feel free to comment on these youself, let me know what you like/dislike, like the Dylan set, I have hardly found a track I would call "uninteresting", be they good or bad.

The last entry in Jose's effort (remember, I'm gonna  add a sort of "supplement" to this afterwards.), is "Past Masters Volume 2"...Well, I always liked Richie Havens version of "Lady Madonna", and Wilson Pickett had a large hit with his version of "Hey Jude". Al Green who could scorch ANY song he covered, owns "Get Back"....also, oddball entries from Whitesnake (!) and Scorpions (!!)......

Been a great set, had fun reposting it and maybe giving it  a bit more exposure....thanks again to Jose and his great team!

Well, I have to say, this is a grat set compile by Jose and friends......as a Beatles fan, as well as a fan of skillfuly crafted, homemade-cover projects, these I think are fantastic....I hope that someday I getthe CHANCE to do similar projects on some of my fave albums (ONE of which you know is "Forever Changes", the others we'll keep secret for now until we see if I can construct a covers project out of them.
