ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fried Glass Onions—Memphis Meets The Beatles is a celebration of The Beatles and of the city that greatly inspired and influenced them. This CD includes both the familiar and the not-so-familiar material from the vast catalogue of original songs by the Beatles. Most of these interpretations have a definitive, identifiable Memphis twist. Daddy Mack Orr’s “Get Back” is a stripped-down, blues rendition, while Bob Simon & Eddie Harrison’s “Two Of Us” sounds like vintage Sam & Dave from the Stax Records era. Most of these versions are either R&B or soul infused, although funk treatments of “The One After 909” and “She Came In Through The Bathroom Window” take the groove a little deeper. Speaking of groove, the Memphis All-Stars’ version of “Drive My Car” is absolutely unstoppable and demonstrates the undeniable potency of a four-piece soul band. These fourteen tracks represent a diverse pool of contemporary Memphis talent offering fresh versions of Beatles songs that will not disappoint even the most discerning Beatles fan. At the same time, proponents of classic Memphis music will hear Beatles songs like never before and will delight in knowing that Memphis musicians are alive and well. All of the material was recorded in 2004 specifically for this unique tribute release.

Wow! Staxx meets Liverpool.
The track Two Of Us is enough to warrant the purchase of this cd. Bob and Eddie lay it down double old school style while the Fabs get to dance the night away to their own classics.
Hell yeah! Buy this mutha..

Read Ink19's Review of this Album.
The common question that arises when discussing cover songs with my friends and colleagues is, "Well, is it better than the original?" This is a question that tends to not be asked when the original artist is The Beatles. Instead, with that history to live up to, people generally ask, "Well, is it better than the other cover versions I have heard?" Fried Glass Onions stacks up quite well on this meter, mainly because a good portion of the songs they picked are songs that are not often covered...READ FULL ARTICLE BY SELECTING LINK.
