The Beatles Covers Project, Vol. 4 - Various Artists REVISED


McCartney fans, this one's for you. Lots of people have covered side 2 of Abbey Road, but in my estimation the Trey Anastasio Band's version is the best I've heard. Too bad he didn't play "Her Majesty"--we had to turn to Umphrey's McGee for that. BTW If any of these bands are unfamiliar to you, check the All Music Guide ( or Wikipedia; they're all in one, the other, or both.

Due to the many different sources, I am not including lineages, but I do want to send out a special thanks to all the tapers, the original uploaders, and, especially, the folks who've sent me tracks to include here and in the future. Thanks too to the folks who've created cover art--please, keep it coming. I have done nothing to the original files but normalize the levels and fade in and out on each track (using Cool Edit). Please start the suggestions and files coming--if you've got something good, PM me (remember, solo Beatle stuff is fair game here too).
