V/A, We Can Work It Out: Covers & Cookies of Lennon, McCartney & The Beatles (2005)
This double LP of Beatles covers features funk and soul and R’n’B and there are reggae-tinged and jazz trace-around covers too. One of my favourites was always Ike and Tina Turner doing Come Together. And of course that great cover of Got To Get You Into My Life by Earth, Wind & Fire. Well there’s all the good stuff here – some curios, some of the greatest songs ever written, dressed up in a different set of clothes. I like giving a side or two out of the four a spin now and then. It’s usually followed directly by going back to the source material.
Sample Track: Day Tripper (Sergio Mendes)
