Aka covers the Beatles – I am the Walrus

i thought i would start putting up some new tracks i do here for feedback.
since most of you are avid music buffs , & probably musicians , this shouldnt be too hard..:)
let me know what ya think either way , studio tips / recoding hints would be great.
i mix & play on monitors , so might have EQ probs , please let me know thanks.
this is my insane take on the beatles classic , “i am the walrus”. it`s not as embellished as the original – but then again , i am no george martin !

  1. Just wanted to let you know I put your walrus version on cd and haven`t taken it off my cd player.Very Cool

  2. Howdy Mr A –I already PM’ed you my thoughts via GF, so I won’t repeat ’em again, but just as a complete side issue I was thinking of that Paul Anka album which featured ‘Swing’ versions of rock tracks – at some point someone just has to do the same thing for [to?] the Fabs’ Psychy songs: I’m just imagining the kind of ‘Swing’ style vocal ‘mannerisms’ applied to an upbeat Walrus – “Heyyy – they’re the Eggmen – yeahhh! – we’re the Eggman – Woh! – and I’m a Walrus! Ba-dah-doo-bah-bah-dah!” over a ‘Big Band’ arrangement of perfect SwingPsych blandness.And of course, ‘Your Mother Should Know’ is crying out for a friendly ‘Swing’ reading…ho ho…. ho.Strange thing is, I suspect it’d actually shift units to the now mellowed out Fabs generation.Next George Martin project!Heresy, they cry? lol.I’m English – ‘I’m allowed.’ Kinda. lol.Baroque on, and continued good thoughts to you, Mr A.

  3. Nice production – there were certain parts of the song where I was waiting to see how you did – the English garden part, the hoo hoo hoo hee hee hee hah hah hah part – very nice!

  4. Sendspace says it doesn’t exist
