* The latest addition to the BGP Sound Library is this superior piece of Beatles cash-in from 1966 on the Mirwood label, a complete rendition of the American version of "Rubber Soul" by some of the finest West Coast session musicians.
* The album was masterminded by label owner Randy Wood who had released some of the Beatles first records in the US when he was running the Vee-Jay label. * Produced by Marshall Lieb who had been a member of the Teddy Bears, (the trio that included Phil Spector when they scored the #1 hit `To Know Him Is To Love Him'). He is joined in the back room by engineer David Hassinger who engineered most of the Stones' big hits of the mid-60s.
* The musicians gathered together for the session were some of the biggest names on the West Coast scene, familiar from the records of Phil Spector, the Beach Boys and scores of other Los Angeles hits. They include arranger Don Randi, Elvis' guitarist James Burton and drummer extraodinaire Hal Blaine.
