Trending Now

This disc consists of 21 covers of Beatles songs by American soul and jazz artists from the Atlantic and Warner stables in the ’60s and early ’70s.

Among the more successful efforts assembled here are covers by Aretha Franklin, King Curtis and The Meters, but the abiding question is “why?”
