The Beatles: Within You Without You/Tomorrow Never Knows
The Beatles: Love (EMI) BEST OF ELSEWHERE 2006

You've probably read about this one already (maybe even by me in the Herald where I wrote an extended review) so all it needs is for you to hear these musical collages pulled together by the former Beatles' producer George Martin and his son Giles.

It is impressive listening and the assimilation of one musical idea into a completely different song makes for some real ear-swerves, especially if you know the Beatles' catalogue well.

Once you get past the song-spotting you can probably better enjoy the art (of the Beatles and the Martins), and coast into this extremely psychedelic reconstruction of Beatles' songs.

Okay, it isn't the most Elsewhere album we've posted here. But believe me when you hear it, it's very "elsewhere".

This album won its producers George and Giles Martin the best compilation soundtrack at the Grammys held in February 2008
