Mark Cunningham’s Sgt. Pepper

I hadn’t planned on writing about this (don’t even know why) but I happened upon the Sound on Sound article that talked about Mark Cunningham’s 1987 Pepper remake. I was interested in hearing what his re-recording of this Fab4 masterpiece sounded like. I had also lucked into Mark’s email, and decided to say hello.

I was  surprised to get a reply from Mark with several of the tracks attached (sorry, but I won’t be making them available on this blog). Although the mp3’s were created from cassette transfers, the  music sounded great! Everything had that signature Beatle vibe.

After a few more emails, Mark  graciously sent me a recording he did of Lennon’s Love from the Plastic Ono album. He recorded it with the intent of arranging it, and playing it as The Beatles might have had they produced one more album after Abbey Road. It sounded really cool (he’s a bad-ass guitar player), and maybe one day Mark will make this available to the public.

Thanks again, Mark, for letting me listen to these tracks.
