C&W Budget Beatles Bonanza!

OK! The heck with my totally awesome insights into the scriptures and current events, let's get back to what I know best...

I just came across this on-line and it is my new favorite album of the moment!

Looks like the Design record label decided to create a new Country-Western/Brit-Beat hybrid for the budget bin crowd.

The phony group is named "The Fabulous Beats" which is genius itself. They recorded ten C&W "standards" in what they considered to be the style of The Beatles. That is to say, lots of Liverpool harmonies, Harrisonesque guitar signatures and quirky Ringo-style drumming.

Well, almost. But it really works for me!

(Note: I took some liberties is "flipping" the cover photo so that guitars are all right-handed. Yeah, I know McCartney was a lefty, but that doesn't mean Lennon & Harrison have to be! I'm just that much of a nerd!)

wow, that cover is priceless could have served for the entire impetus for making The Ruttles.

dirk: I felt conflicted about providing yet another post on the VA-Tech deal. I deleted my post and then remembered I had left a link in my comment on your blog, so I deleted that as well. I could always restore the posting, if you think it's appropriate.

furiousball: This LP sounds like it was lifted from the soundtrack of the never-filmed "GO GO BIG BEAT 2" movie!
