The arrival in the late 1960s of the psychedelic and progressive era – when rock started to take itself more seriously – resulted in a plethora of musically adventurous interpretations of Beatles’ material.
Described elsewhere as a ‘Fab Four Parallel Universe’, this fascinating 3-CD 68-track collection from various UK acts includes re-imaginings of Every Little Thing (Yes), The Fool On The Hill (Stone The Crows feat. Maggie Bell), We Can Work It Out (Deep Purple), I Am The Walrus (Spooky Tooth), Day Tripper (Don Fardon), If I Needed Someone (The Hollies), Cliff Bennett & The Rebel Rousers’ hit single Got To Get You Into My Life, and affectionately, Good Night sung by Vera Lynn.
Looking Through A Glass Onion: The Beatles Psychedelic Songbook 1966 – 1972 by various artists is out September 25 via Planet/MGM.
