For their initial visit to America on Feb.7, 1964, I will continue through the covers on that first Beatle album in England, Please Please Me.
One of them was the title song of a play, and on the soundtrack for that play as well as 2 other versions that charted, it was an instrumental.
But we will hear the Beatles sing it, followed by the original FIRST rendition with lyrics!
I'll also be dipping into their second LP, With The Beatles.
And I forgot to mention last time, much of the fun here is in comparing the versions- do you like the Beatle one better or is the original the one that does it for you?
It was a joy and a labor of love for me to do this show, and additional volumes will be forthcoming.
Hope you like this chapter, as I can virtually guarantee you will be introduced to music you have not heard before.
Here's the link to hear it, and please bring an open mind, to WLSO.FM:
