99% oof the time, when I hear a Beatles cover, my first reaction is "Why?"
And so, I was taken by surprise to find these effective covers from a relative unknown -- a ukelele specialist and jazz historian named Casey Macgill.
These are fresh, highly engaging interpretations which totally justify themselves.
YOU CAN'T DO THAT is rendered as a kind of what, St. Louis blues number?
I FEEL FINE is strummed infectiuosly on strings.
Anyway, givem a try, if you are curious. I wonder if anyone else will see value in them, or if I'm out in left field.
I wish Macgill would do more of these. But he has apparently taken more of a decided 30's jazz turn.
