DWIGHT TWILLEY The Beatles (Deluxe Edition) (2008)

The Beatles (Deluxe Edition) (2008)
John, Paul, George & Twilley

Relatively obscure release from Dwight Twilley. A 19 track collection of Beatles tunes that finds the power popper giving his spin on the classics, eight of which come from The White Album. Twilley’s covers are surprisingly faithful to the originals, as he strives to find a familiar feel for nearly every take – though, he turns “Everybody’s Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey” into a unique and effective dirge while managing to put his own distinctive stamp on “I’ll Be Back,” without altering the arrangement a bit. There are two editions of this album. The “regular” edition (HERE) sports a Magical Mystery Tour-styled cover and contains 14 tracks. This Deluxe Edition (HERE) features an additional 5 songs. Amazon is acting like they’re both already out of print. Big, big thanks to ProblemSolver for sharing this with us.

    Wow…this is a gem, thanks so much! Twilley is so under-rated, but what a great sound.

    Beatle covers tend to fall flat to my ears, but Twilley’s take on “Everybody Has Something to Hide…” is inspired. He makes it sound like a Twilley song, rather than a cover.

    Hey Willard — I’ve always been a Dwight Twilley fan & have never heard this — a tip of the hat to you!

    Like many, I’m more of a Beatles purist…covering The Beatles is a mighty task that most, to me, don’t succeed at, but the preview song of Dear Prudence (one of my big faves from the White Album) is really nice! I’ll check out the rest! Thanks, Cap’n!
