The Beatles Project #2: Devolver


Here's installment number two of my ongoing recreations of Beatles albums. This one features two non-english versions (Taxman in Portuguese, Yellow Submarine in Dutch), soul covers of Got To Get You Into My Life, Good Day Sunshine, and Tomorrow Never Knows, I'm Only Sleeping as an upbeat ska number, and some other interesting tidbits. A special shout out to Funky16Corners for the soul sides and to Menno Sijbrandij for hipping me to Collectors Corner, where I got the Karin Kent version of Yellow Sub. Thanks, guys! Oh, and a special belated thanks to Guuzbourg, the creator of the fantastic Filles Sourires blog. Keep 'em comin'!
