The Smithereens’ highly anticipated follow up to their critically acclaimed 2007 release, Meet The Smithereens. Adding their own stamp to Fab Four B-sides from 1964 and early 1965, B-Sides The Beatles re-enforces what we knew all along: The Beatles B-sides were better than most of the A-sides released by other artists. Includes “You Can’t Do That,” “Thank You Girl,” “If I Fell,” “P.S. I Love You” (Featuring Beatles session drummer Andy White), and more.
The Smithereens enlisted legendary illustrator Jack Davis, one of the most beloved and talented artists to be associated with Mad magazine, to create the cover of this album. The Smithereens join a distinguished fraternity of artists that includes the likes of Homer & Jethro, Spike Jones, Johnny Cash and The Cowsills, all of whom can boast long-players adorned by the art of Jack Davis.
“B-Sides The Beatles” also includes fantastic in-depth liner notes by Beatles author/historian Bruce Spizer, as well as “Beatle” Tommy Frangione (Joe Johnson’s Beatle Brunch), and the Smithereens’ own Dennis Diken.
