RUBBER SOUL - RECOVERED - VARIOUS ARTISTS (2010)

In this post, I present an anthological album of the Beatles' discography, but in a reread version (covers). It is the album "Rubber Soul", which is on the list of 200 definitive albums in the Rock and Roll of Fame.

"Rubber Soul" was the sixth album released by the group. It was recorded in just over a month and released in December 1965, being produced by George Martin. It is cited by many music critics as the record on which the Beatles became the most eclectic and musically evolved.

At that time, after softening the primitive strength of rock, with the explosion of folk rock and surf music, each group started to use all the potential that the recording studios of the time could offer.

The Beatles themselves overcame their teenage phase, going through the jokes placed in movies, by Richard Lester, to the deep poetic universe that they began to develop with the album "Rubber Soul".

In this work, they made real ruptures, such as the surrealist lyrics and the use of 'sitar', a musical instrument of Indian origin, in the Norwegian wood song, the lyricism of In my life and Michele and the poignant loneliness of Nowhere man. The album was considered the most innovative in rock until then.

A curiosity is that this album was released for the first time simultaneously in England and the United States, but with a difference of two tracks from one version to another.

The songs that make up this album have received thousands of reinterpretations from different artists and styles. The album in this post features a consistent reinterpretation of reputable artists.

Below is the list of songs and their respective performers that make up the post rereading album:

01-Drive My Car (Humble Pie);
02-Norwegian Wood (Tangerine Dream);
03-You Won't See Me (Anne Murray);
04-Nowhere Man (Randy Travis);
05-Les Garçons Sont Fous-Think For Yourself (François Fabrice);
06-The Word (Mindy Smith);
07-Michelle (King Curtis);
08-What Goes On (Charles River Valley Boys);
09-Girl (The Brothers Four);
10-I'm Looking Through You (Steve Earle);
11-In My Life (Johnny Cash);
12-Wait (Connie Evingson);
13-If I Needed Someone (Roger McGuinn);
14-Run For Your Life (Nancy Sinatra);
15-We Can Work It Out (Dionne Warwick);
16-Day tripper (Whitesnake).

ED MACIEL - OS GRANDES SUCESSOS DOS BEATLES (2021)

Last weekend, listening to a compilation by Brazilian musician Ed Maciel, I noticed that he performed several Beatles songs over seven albums. Based on this, I decided to put together a compilation of these songs.

Ed Maciel was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, on January 21, 1927 and died on August 4, 2011. His best moment in his career occurred precisely in the years 1966 and 1967, when he released the albums of the series “Na Onda ”, on the Odeon record label, which had a dancing rhythm, interpreted radio hit songs and appealed to lovers of instrumental music.

He came from a family of musicians or, more accurately, trombonists. His father and at least two of his brothers continued playing the trombone and his brother Edson, the youngest, participated in recordings of their albums.

With an erudite background, upon arriving in Rio de Janeiro, he became a conductor, arranger, orchestra leader and was the first trombonist of the Symphonic Orchestra of the Municipal Theater of Rio de Janeiro.

Practically, he played with almost all the great names of Música Popular Brasileira. The selection of songs that make up this compilation contains the following songs:

01. Day tripper;
02. A taste of honey;
03. I feel fine;
04. Yesterday;
05. Michelle;
06. Got to get you in my life;
07. Hey Jude;
08. Get back;
09. Goodbye;
10. Let it be;
11. Money.

EXPÓSITO E SUA ORQUESTRA - OS GRANDES SUCESSOS DOS BEATLES (2021)

In June 2020, I posted a single (EP) by the Orquestra Namorados do Caribe containing 4 Beatles hits, which was released in Brazil in 1966 by RCA Victor.

Some time later, checking other Brazilian orchestras, I noticed that several of them also recorded tracks by the quartet The Beatles.

So, I had the idea to select the recordings of these orchestras. To start with, I present six orchestrated songs recorded by the Argentinean conductor Expósito & Sua Orquestra, which were released in Brazil, on several albums, by the record label RCA Victor.

Maestro Virgílio Hugo Expósito was born on May 3, 1924, in the city of Zárate, a province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and died on October 25, 1997.

The musician worked as an arranger and conductor throughout the 1960s, in the orchestras of the Brazilian record company RCA. In Brazil, he left a discography consisting of seven albums, including a Bossa Nova compilation, from 1963 to 1967.

Following are the songs selected for this post:

  • 01. All my loving;
  • 02. Michelle;
  • 03. Help;
  • 04. Here, there and everywhere;
  • 05. Yesterday;
  • 06. A taste of honey.
