This review is from: Beatlemaniacs!!! The World Of Beatles Novelty Records (Audio CD)
When its all one word it means it a song about the Beatles and by the end of the 60s there were more of them than the nearest rival Elvis.
Really it splits into two with the bulk of these songs appearing in 1964/5 with a revival of sorts with the idea based around the Paul Is Dead rumour.
The first Beatlesong was made in England in 1963 by American bluegrass star Bill Clifton and was followed shortly by Dora Bryan,then an actress of 40 who recorded a song called All I want for Christmas is a Beatle.
Apart from the Vernons Girls and the Carefrees this was an American phenomenon and a CD such as this is long overdue-it could start off a whole series.In fact there is a series called Shabby Road produced on glorified CDRs by a Russian fan-21 in all
As is usual with British reissues theres a fact packed booklet
