Day 8 - "What Child Is This" - The Fab Four

"Hey Up!" It's 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps', it's's the 1865 Carol written by William Chatterton Dix and set to the tune of the traditional English song Greensleeves. But how can that be? The Clapton guitar solo seems to be there, the cries on the fade out, Harrison's voice - but that's the beauty of California-based Beatles tribute band The Fab Four; it is sometimes difficult to know what you are listening too. Regulars will know I think it is touched with genius and if, as rumours currently have it, Sir Macca himself hired them to play for his wife at her birthday party recently, then they really do have a seal of approval. Don't fail to hear it.
