For No One - Beatles Cover

Recommended Posts

I've noticed one or two other covers on here so I thought I'd submit this from my 90s archive for comments on the arrangement. Like others of mine of this vintage, the backing is from a Yamaha SQ-16 (which I still have) and the vocals sung live direct to stereo tape, bounced to a second tape machine for the harmony vocal (that you can just about hear).

I've tried to make it "my own" without ruining it. Hope you enjoy it.

I enjoyed it as well. Your voice fits it perfectly, also the tempo/ groove felt good.  One of the better Beatles covers I've heard in a long time. - Great job

A nice rendition of a song I've always liked.  I thought your vocal was very good on this.  No crits on the mix - it was an enjoyable listen.

I noticed that you got the groove to this song just right - nice job.

I am a Beatles obsessive and whenever a band or singer cover one of their songs I think "Oh God no"!  "For No One" is one of my favourite Beatles songs and I have to say your version is fantastic.  Great vocals and arrangement.

Keith,

 

Great job,  had to go back and listen to the Beatles version again.    I actually prefer your arrangement and tempo over the original.   Vocals are really well done.

 

Regards
