my white bicycle  performed by tomorrow  1968
Recommended by shaka_klaus [profile]

it's strange how people change. this group was led by steve howe, yes, the man from yes (a horrible group!). the song 'my white bicycle' �s a cover version. psychedelic trip!

from the single my white bicycle (parlophone)
available on CD - nuggets ii (rhino)

  27 May 05 ·stushea: Yeah, this is a great one. Not only is it trippy and funny, but very aggressive and intense in its own way.
For No-One  performed by Cilla Black  1966
Recommended by Mister C [profile]

This beautiful cover of the Beatles song was buried on a b-side in the UK in 1966,it deserved to have been a big hit for Cilla. Cilla's treatment and George Martin's arrangement make this essential listening.

available on CD - The Essential Cilla Black (EMI)

  22 Apr 04 ·olli: Cilla Black is definetively one of my favourite performers of Lennon/mccartne- related material. Her voice is just incredibly right for this style of music..great stuff.
It’s For You  performed by Cilla Black  1964
Recommended by Zygny [profile]

Lots of Cilla's earlier material was top quality, this Lennon/McCartney song (never actually recorded by the Fabs) knocked me out when I first heard it on my cousin's Dansette in 1964. Spooky melody which almost strays into jazz territory in the instrumental break. Sophisticated pop of the highest order.

Across The Universe  performed by Cilla Black  1969

A lovely version of this Beatles song which appeared on a 1969 album by Cilla. When it appeared on a compilation CD recently Q maga in the UK raved about it.

from Sweet Inspiration (Parlophone)

Don’t Go Breaking My Heart  performed by Wilson Neves e Seu Conjunto  196?
Recommended by sodapop650 [profile]

This whole LP will make all you Ed Lincoln fans happy. It is a group led by Wilson Neves, the percussionist on a lot of major Bossa releases including all the Eumir Deodato LPs released on Equipe. This track is not the Elton John Kiki Dee version but the earlier Burt Bacharach version. The whole LP is loaded with great organ heavy instrumentals and dance-floor-burners performed by an extremely tight combo. Best of all its available on CD as part of the Odeon 100 Anos series. A lot of groups on the Parlophone label could crank out the cheesey sixties-organ sound and Bacharach covers but not many could match the rythms of Das Neves. How do they say it - ritmo calliente!

from Juventude 2000 (Parlophone PBA 13.008), available on CD (EMI/Odeon)

  06 May 04 ·delicado: Funny - I just compiled this track the other day. The album sounds great, but my copy is an extremely scratchy Colombian pressing; I'll have to pick up the CD.
