Cleopatra Records has recently released a new compilation titled "Legends Play The Beatles" on CD and limited edition color vinyl. This new set features some very well-known artists paying tribute to their idols with own version of some The Beatles' timeless classics. The twelve-song set kicks off with Richard Page (Mr. Mister) and Steve Morse (Deep Purple) teaming up for the smooth, easy-going acoustics of "Here Comes The Sun," which sounds like an invitation to enjoy all the great music on this new release. Ann Wilson (Heart) lends her iconic vocals to the mellow, bluesy tone of "Across The Universe," while a recording of the late John Wetton (King Crimson, Asia) performing "Penny Lane" is certainly a highlight of this album, as Wetton's vocals give the song a progressive touch.
Classic southern rockers Molly Hatchet turn "Back In The USSR" into an all-out, aggressive assault, which is sure to make you wake-up and rock out. On the flipside, you have the gentle, elegant touch of Air Supply's "Long And Winding Road," which just floats on by with its relaxed nature. One of the more modern artists on this new release is Electric Moon, as they take "Tomorrow Never Knows" and turns on the full psychedelics for their own version of this cult classic. This new compilation wraps up with pop artist Howard Jones delivering his smooth vocals to the Beatles' ballad "And I Love Her," the angelic voice of the legendary Judy Collins on "Yesterday" and the rocker Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath) showing his range on the spiritual ballad "Let It Be."
