For No One from the Drifters

Here’s the latest episode in The Farewell Drifters’ video track-by-track series, created to introduce the music from their upcoming CD, Yellow Tag Mondays.

Last week I accused them of a Beatlesque flair in their original song, Sunnyside Drive, and looky here… This new episode has them covering a Beatles song that Paul McCartney wrote and sang on their Revolver album in 1966.

The guys discuss the genesis of the arrangement in the video,where you’ll also hear snippets of their version.

Yellow Tag Mondays is due on June 8.

Your humble blogger is old enough to remember buying that Beatles LP when it was first released, and is delighted to see these young folks studying and revising their music.

    This is one of the best Beatles covers I’ve heard. I love the vocals and instrumentation; can’t wait to hear the new album.
