Meet the Smithereens
I met the Smithereens 15 years ago, with the release of their brilliant Especially for You, featuring their somewhat hit, Blood & Roses. After a long hiatus they're back with a fun album of Beatles covers. This is a collection of familiar pop songs covered by a great band. My only complaint is that it's a little too note-for-note for my covers tastes. It definitely sounds like the Smithereens but I wish it sounded a little more like the Simthereens. Still ... this one is highly recommended.
And it's available at eMusic.
