A two 90-minute set of ex-Beatles songs that are either collaborations
with other ex-Beatles, covers of Beatles songs, or about the Beatles or
ex-Beatles. The premise is that having been a part of the most
successful pop outfit of all time is an inescapable reality that
continued to occupy the former members through their entire musical
careers thereafter, right up to the sort-of reunion in 1994 and beyond.
They started off hurling musical stones at each other, then became the
best of friends again but still hated the Beatles, then, after John's
death, began to embrace their past again. And all of it is chronicled in
their music. When the songs are placed in a historical context, you can
actually hear their attitudes change. I spent a year and a half making
the tape flow like a documentary, with revealing interview excerpts and
sound bites thrown in. That's an awfully long time to work on one mix
but there were various mishaps and developments along the way that had
me starting a lot of it over. The title is also a Beatles song. Roger'd Records. Issued: August 1998.

Wow. I've thought about making a mix of post-1970 songs by Beatles members, but haven't had the courage to start it yet... this mix is a work of art.

This mix is astounding. Do reveal your sources for some of these (John's "I Saw Her Standing There," George's "In My Life," etc.)!
