Abbey Road

Come Together
Maxwell's Silver Hammer
Oh! Darling
Octopus' Garden
I Want You (She's So Heavy)
Here Comes The Sun
You Never Give Me Your Money
Sun King

Since I'm going to be away for about 10 days, here's a perfect time to introduce another block of songs. Here's the story: in 2002, good ol' Steve Kanter thought that he might want to recruit some friends to be the Abbey Road-era Beatles. On top of that, tho, he decided that we should PERFORM THE ALBUM in the outdoor atrium of his apartment building for the passing revellers. We did, and it was a gas. A bit shambolic, but with a lotta heart (and a bit of booze, as well). The first block of songs premiers here, the rest to be heard upon my return. Enjoy!

Al: Lead Vox, percussion
Steve: Bass, backing vox
Mike: Keys, backing vox
Colby Allerton: Guitar, backing vox
Steve Adams: Drums, backing vox

You didn't mention that this was for Halloween and you guys were also DRESSED as the Beatles while performing, attracting more than a few, how shall we say, street denizens. Loverly.

I should also mention that the idea was inspired by the late, great PHISH, who did a similar idea every Halloween for every year they were together, I believe; dressing up as another group and performing one of their albums.

This is a very ambitious and solid set of cover songs! I'm digging it. Now tell me again why yer band isn't cranking out even more tunes?
