Relax And Float Downstream


Kudos to all involved here. I love all 5 versions of what I always thought was an untouchable Beatles gem.

From Bob Belden's genius production of trumpets and tympani, to Junior Parker's smooth and soulful trip, to Phil Manzanera and Brian Eno's fusion of jazz and glam with their one-off band 801, to the fairly faithful takes from Los Lobos and Phil Collins, "Tomorrow Never Knows" offers many possibilities, and all of these artists handled the task quite respectably.





Enjoy.

Very cool, all of 'em -- and thanks!

Now -- apart from Matthew Sweet (w/Richard Lloyd, if memory serves) -- has anybody covered "She Said She Said," still my fave Revolver tune?

The Black Keys covered "She Said..." So did my band, though it never really worked. The middle bit is in fucking 6/8 or something. Also, I have a vinyl copy of Lone Star, a UFO offshoot band (don't ask) doing an overblown 8 minute, prog-metal version.

My favorite version of "Tomorrow Never Knows" is by Monsoon, from their "Third Eye" album. Awesome stuff. And The Feelies covered "She Said, She Said" on a 12" released around the time "The Good Earth" came out.

I remember loving the Chameleons UK version of Tomorrow (with a little of Everybody's Got Something to Hide thrown in) in the 1980s.
