Pmb 138 Please Please Me 2013 08 04 02

We like to be fashionably late to the party so this week on the show we finally get round to marking the 50th anniversary of the release of The Beatles' first album, Please Please Me.  As we've done previously with the likes of The White Album, The Man Machine and Nevermind, we've attempted to do a track-for-track cover of (most) of the tracks on the album. We've managed to find cover versions covering genres as diverse as metal mash-up, Brazilian pop, electronic exotica and French ye-ye to name but four.  We also bring you the track which has the accolade of being the first ever cover version of a Beatles song by none other than Kenny Lynch.
