Not Just A Cover Album
The Beatles catalogue of songs have been covered by just about everyone so often- that at times some of their tunes resemble a cheap linoleum floor. The first time I listened to Fried Glass Onions - Memphis Meets The Beatles , it was a bit difficult to shake the original songs from my head; but after giving it a second listening, the new music took hold of my ear and would not let it go. Get back and Old Brown Shoe are two examples of songs that just blow me away. The 70's and 80's Memphis Back beat and vocals are sharp and precise and the album, the musicians and the music they make from Beatles songs stand well on their own and this collection of songs is worth owning and listening again and again.
