[The Hammond Sound #21… ]

“ … McLemore Avenue is a 1970 album by Booker T. & the M.G.s, consisting entirely of mostly instrumental covers of songs from the Beatles‘ album Abbey Road (released only months earlier, in September 1969) … Booker T. Jones said, „I was in California when I heard Abbey Road, and I thought it was incredibly courageous of The Beatles to drop their format and move out musically like they did. To push the limit like that and reinvent themselves when they had no need to do that. They were the top band in the world but they still reinvented themselves. The music was just incredible so I felt I needed to pay tribute to it.“ …“ | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McLemore_Avenue (20 September 2018)
