Brian's Beatles Contribution

(Scott)-Hey, why NOT some more Beatles......it is mind boggling that so many have downloaded that
monstrosity I put up the other night, guess there are some HARD CORE Beatles lovers out there.....perhaps you've not heard these, I hadn't......look out for the bonus as well!
-----------------------------------------
I couldn't let Scott's Beatles Covers epic pass by without adding something to it. This might be like the fat guy eating the mint and blowing up in The Meaning Of Life, but I didn't see these two releases represented in the pile. And they're really good, so I wanted to hip you Beatles freaks to them.

12 Cellists Of the Berlin Philharmonic - Beatles In Classics
This one I found recently. While I tend to avoid the "String Quartet" kind of tribute albums, the idea of this all being on cellos sounded interesting. It also came out in '83, long before the trend. And it sounds really great! A beautiful album, both for Beatles fans and classical fans. I particularly like how they transformed "A Hard Day's Night".

1. Yellow Submarine |2. Let It Be |3. Something |4. The Fool On the Hill |5. Help |6. Yesterday |7. Michelle |8. A Hard Day's Night |9. Norwegian Wood |10. Here There & Everywhere |11. Can't Buy Me Love |12. Hey Jude


Laibach - Let It Be
How to prepare you for this...the Beatles' wistful swan song reimagined as an icy Teutonic juggernaut! Laibach take a bit of explaining - a Slovenian agit-prop group who has long used Aryan-style art and overtones as a method of provocation. You guys remember their "Ballad Of A Thin Man" in the Dylan covers post?

Well, they tackle the whole album, except for the title track, which I'm not sure could actually be Laibached up. "Get Back" sounds ready for invasion, "Dig A Pony" gets positively Wagnerian, and "Across The Universe" has this chillingly beautiful resigned feeling to it. One of the ballsiest cover albums ever, and a great gateway album for the group. And no, they're not fucking Nazis.
The bonus link for this post is a two album file from a very funny lady. Some of the best one liners ever. Oh, and you guys need to look in the Mongolian post and DL that Credibility Gap file - it's gotten a pathetically small number of downloads. Grab all the funny stuff, guys... nobody else is posting it, trust me.
