Transmission 1110

One of the most difficult questions for a fan of The Beatles to answer is "What's your favorite Beatles' album?". I truly love them all, but if forced to choose - I would have to say The Beatles (affectionately known to us all as The White Album). The reason(s)? The cover - or lack of one, the poster and the glossy pictures all factor in, but most of all - it's the cumulative power of the songs. Ironically, not one of the tunes would rank in my Top 10 list of Beatles songs - it's a classic example of the whole being greater than the sum of it's parts.

As eclectic a group as the music they cover, I have gathered together this wide array of diverse fellow White Album devotees and present to you you the RFW interpretation of The Beatles which features Chubby Checker, Jerry Garcia Band, Big Linda, Shango, Pixies, The Punkles, Yellow Matter Custard, The Breeders, Vashti Bunyan & Max Richter, Walter Clevenger & The Dairy Kings, Crosby/Stills & Nash, Pumajaw, Richie Havens, Field Music, Clint Ruin & Lydia Lunch, Joan As Police Woman, Medeski/Martin/Scofield & Wood, Underground Sunshine, Harry Nilsson, The Feelies, Ramsey Lewis, Matmosphere, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Yim Yames, Nina Simone, Barbara Streisand, Ella Fitzgerald, Phish, The Shazam and Jason Falkner!

T1110 is a 2-part show made loud to play loud!

Part 1 is a 64.7mb 128k mp3 1:10:42 in length.

Part 2 is a 48.3mb 128k mp3 52:48 in length.

"number 9"

* This project was not as easy to compile as I thought it would be, though the results were worth the effort. There was only one album that I took more than one cut from, so I would be remiss if I did not give it it's due kudos! Mojo Presents The White Album Recovered is an excellent free 2 CD compilation given away with edition 178 of Mojo Magazine in September of 2008!. Thanks Mojo!
