Band of the Irish Guards - Marching With The Beatles


Remember many moons ago when Mr Snookles posted compilations called 'Break-Through'

If you have really good recall you will remember his request, upon hearing the arrangement of 'Michelle', contributed by the Band of the Irish Guards to the compilation, for a rip of the original album 'Marching with the Beatles'.

Well. thanks to the machinations of co-conspirator Shadrack Blintz, I now have a top-quality vinyl copy in my hot little hand and a first-class rip for your good selves.

If you're into alternative arrangements of Beatles songs, then this album is for you. Besides the martial bombast the big numbers, the Guardsmen tune into their softer inner selves, and side two has quieter exotica-tinged arrangements, and a hint of boogie as well. Delightfully orchestrated and cleanly recorded. Enjoy!
