Greetings all.
As promised, I have returned with the second mix of Beatles covers, aka Funky16Corners Radio v.75 – Golden Slumbers. I menitoned on Monday that this is a much mellower affair than F16C Radio v.74, more suited to dark nights or quiet afternoons than for anything resembling a party.
There are some old faves in the mix, as well as some more recent discoveries.
You can listen to the older Beatles covers mixes via the links below, and to catch Radio v.74 you need only scroll further down the page.
Thanks to everyone who sent along their good wishes on the fifth anniversary of the blog.

I hope you dig the mixes and I’ll be back next week with more of the stuff you love.

    Congratulations on your Anniversary, what you do here is unbelievable. Truly mind and ear-opener. I landed here 3 years ago and it has been an incredible learning experience. Above all there’s the pure enjoyment of all the wonderful music and great stories I would have never known about without the F16C. Beatles are a big part of my musical life also, the first record I ever bought with my own money being one called “Beatles ballads” (now out of print). I’m really enjoying this! I love that Here There Everywhere version with the humming and vibes. What a pairing! Very relaxing after a day of chasing around my 2 year old…

    Thanks! That’s Gary McFarland with the vibes/vocalising. Most of his Verve/Skye stuff has a lot of that going on. Some people find it irritating but I love it.

    Thanks for all the great mixes over the last five years and looking forward to many more to come.

    Hey Larry,

    Congrats and a massive thank you to The Funky 16 Corners!!!

    I landed up here one fine day in 2007 and was a died-in-the-wool fan by the turn of that year.

    Try never to miss anything that you post (here or on IL).

    Keep up the excellent work.

    I have been introduced to dozens of artists and hundreds of tunes I would never have heard!!! Great tunes, great info, great times.

    You are, as they say, ‘The Man’

    Truly essential thing!

    thank you Larry!

  9. soulsizzle Says:

    Beatles covers have always been fertile ground of jazz/soul/funk covers. George Benson’s “The Other Side of Abbey Road” is a classic in my eyes.

  10. Wave Says:

    no offence, George Benson’s “The Other Side of Abbey Road” is really bad
