another bunch of cheesy Beatles covers from the thrift store bins, in tribute to Eric Schmuckler's Beatlesongs project; this disc leans more to the lounge & E-Z listening
versions, so is either hard to take or comical depending on your mood. The cover image & title are from a right-wing 60's expose of the Fab Four as secret agents of the KGB.

GREAT! Tony Bennett's Eleanor Rigby is an annoying classic and the Goldie Hawn is inspriring. This mix has left me stirred as well as shaken.

nice job on both . . . have you seen the new soundtrack to the movie 'I Am Sam'? All Beatles covers, by such random people as Eddie Vedder and Grandaddy. And some normals like Sarah McLachlan. Haven't heard it but I'm willing to bet it's not as cool and quirky as these.
