One of the greatest albums ever…
The Beatles had initiated a second pop revolution – one which while galvanising their existing rivals and inspiring many new ones, left all of them far behind.
~Ian MacDonald (Revolution in the Head: The Beatles’ Records and the Sixties)

2 thoughts on “The Beatles: Revolver covered”
Other Revolver covers I recommend are Taxman by Junior Parker, And Your Bird Can Sing by Jim Reid (recorded for a Mojo magazine CD), and She Said She Said by The Black Keys.
New Zealand musician Matthew Bannister (Sneaky Feelings) has released Evolver being covers of all 14 original songs.
