Mojo's Free Yellow Submarine Covers Disk. This month, Mojo magazine once again revisits a classic album with the help of some of today’s best artists.

The Yellow Submarine film was released on July 17, 1968 and the Beatles soundtrack album followed six months later. In 1999, the Yellow Submarine Songtrack, a collection of music from that era, was released and it is this track listing that has mainly driven Yellow Submarine Resurfaces, the Mojo tribute.

Covers range from Benjamin Francis Leftwich tackling With A Little Help From My Friends, Baxter Dury’s When I’m Sixty-Four, Thea Gilmore doing All You Need Is Love and Cornershop’s version of Love You To. Other artists involved include the wonderful Wooden Wand, Bill Wells & Aiden Moffat, Cornshed Sisters and Pete Shelley.

A couple of our particular favourites are below, Howe Gelb’s¬†appropriately parched, half-spoken version of Eleanor Rigby and Gravenhurst (fresh from the release of their superb new record, The Ghost In Daylight) providing a tensely melodic Only A Northern Song.

Mojo can be picked up from any decent newsagents.
