Another cool version of the Beatles’ A day in the life“, this time around off das Wolfgang Dauner Quintet’s The Oimels lp (MPS 1969).

a day in the life


Brian Auger on French tv in 1968, and Les DeMerle in the same year, off his Spectrumlp (just reissued on Get On Down). Wonder who was the first to see a jazz adaptation in this song. And to boot: two more Beatles covers, from France, off 2006’s La France Et Les Beatles Vol. 2″ v/a cd on Magic (who have an impractical site).

Morgana King nor Freddie McCoy are featured on either of these brand new compilations … The Exotic Beatles Part IV – Plastic Soul(Exotica 2011) isn’t as fun as the three preceding volumes, incidentally.
