Hey Beatels! I got your C.D."It's Four You" today and have not stopped playing it.I'd love to know who did the arrangement, ala-'This Boy' of 'Like Dreamers Do'? I'm sure if 'The Applejacks' ever heard it they'd be kicking themselves, as surely with a 'Beatels' approach it would have been a much bigger hit for them.'It's For You' and 'Step Inside Love' sound fantastic and so much better than the high pitched warbling of "Our Cilla".Other magnificent moments, "World Without Love", "Love of the Loved", (another stroke of arranging genius to have 'The Beatles' Harmonica replacing the trumpets on the original recording!)
and the 'Billy J. Kramar & The Dakotas' triple of
"From a Window","I'll Keep You Satisfied" and "I'll Be On my Way" are all 'definitive versions.I don't know how many copies of "It's Four You" you have sold, but I'd like to HIGHLY RECOMMEND it to not only 'BEATELS'and'BEATLES fans
but to all lovers of 'Beat' music, great harmonies and great arrangements. 'The Beatels' have faithfully recreated the early sound of 'The Beatles' from the early sixties and have given new life to some 'Lennon-McCartney' give away songs, that perhaps the original artists from the Brian Epstein stable failed to deliver all those years ago! I haven't been this excited since i bought "Please Please Me" home!
"Goodbye"-Eat your heart out Mary Hopkins!
