I Am The Walrus

 

Something else you need to hear. A Beatles cover that equals the original.  So different it defies comparison.

This band was full of sidemen.  Luther Grosvenor was also Aerial Bender in Mott The Hoople (1974).  Chris Stainton was the musical director for Joe Cocker on “Mad Dogs and Englishmen”, Henry McCulloch was on something by Paul McCartney, Mike Kellie ended up in The Only Ones.  Alan Spenner is on a stray Roxy Music album as a session player.  I’m not sure what I should remember Mike Harrison for.  The song is from The Last Puff (1970).

  1. Henry did the awesome guitar solo on the McCartney/Wings song “My Love”. He also has a sound bite on “dark Side of the Moon” and played with Joe Cocker.

  2. I really love Spooky Tooth-their version of janis Ian’s “Societies Child” is perfect.
    I like “Spooky Two” with “Lost in a Dream” and “Better By You Better Than Me”.
    Great blog by the way.
