ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Following last year's hugely successful, Cape Cod Covers, Vol. 1 "The King", the best musicians on Cape Cod have come together again to lend their talents and pay tribute to "The Beatles".

Cape Cod Covers, Vol. 2 "The Beatles" features Carly Simon, Entrain, Kate Taylor, Travis & Shook and many others performing versions of Beatles songs that are sure to become classics all over again.

Produced by David Wood, the album proceeds go to benefit Angel Flight N.E.

What is Angel Flight NE?

Angel Flight NE is a volunteer corps of over 1200 private pilots and "Earth Angels" who combine their love of flying with the spirit of grassroots volunteerism by flying patients and their families to the critical health care they need. They provide air transportation in private aircraft by volunteer pilots so that children and adults may access life saving medical care free of charge.




Angel Flight New England (a.k.a. Angel Flight NE) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization that provides free air transportation to patients whose financial resources would not otherwise enable them to receive treatment or diagnosis, or who may live in rural areas without access to commercial airlines.

They are also a vital mode of transportation for organs, blood and for patients awaiting organ transplants. AFNE also makes compassion flights and provide air care wherever there is a compelling human need.

While AFNE patients primarily live in the northeast United States, they currently provide flights for people as far north as Maine, as far west as Minnesota and as far south as Florida and Louisiana.
Approximately 50% of AFNE patients are children, generally suffering from severe burns or cancer.

Homegrown Beatles tribute best of new cover CDs
"Cape Cod Covers" does everything you could want a tribute CD to do. It allows you to revisit some favorite songs, tempting you to dig out your old Beatles albums (but listen to it all the way through first). It gives you something new, in that it gathers 20 performers from the Cape and Islands — and you'd have to be a very energetic bar-hopper to be familiar with all of them. And it supports a cause that deserves broad support: helping our neighbors who are struggling with health issues.

Executive producer David Wood pulled off a coup in getting Carly Simon to donate her ever-so-pretty rendition of "Blackbird," but he also deserves credit for rounding up a talented cast of local veterans and newcomers.



Travis & Shook send up an appropriately tear-jerking version of "No Reply," and Brian Kerins does the same on "She's Leaving Home." Link Montana & the Rough Riders stir up some roots-rock magic on "What Goes On." Feldspar connects Lennon's solo and group work by blending a bit of "Jealous Guy" into "Across the Universe."

In one great three-song run, Sarah Swain puts a little twang into "I'm Only Sleeping," the Ticks harmonize magnificently on "Because," and J. Cournoyer puts a mellow surf spin on "Flying," which is about the closest thing to an obscure Beatles song (it's an instrumental on the "Magical Mystery Tour" album). Then comes Maynard Silva's country-blues version of "Get Back," so I guess it's a four-song run. But the next song is Dan Lyons' moving take on "The Long and Winding Road."

I thought it would be a long time before I heard a CD that would replace last year's "Cape Cod Covers," a tribute to Elvis Presley, as my favorite local compilation, but it looks as if this one did it.

A rowdy "We Are the World"-style group effort on "With a Little Help From My Friends" closes the CD, which belongs in the collection of any music fan who calls Cape Cod home.

The best kept Beatles secret for the summer of 2007
With all the tributes, remakes, mixes and mash-ups out there this year, Cape Cod Covers Vol.2 is a refreshing breath of New England music talent... and although 2007 is only half over, this is the best collection of Beatle covers to date and should be a Christmas stocking stuffer for those early shoppers with Fab Four devotees in the family. I found it by accident but you don't have to wait until it falls in your lap.

Beatles bring out the best in Cape and Islands musicians
As it was in the beginning, so it is today: first there was Elvis and then came The Beatles.
This time the Fab Four follow The King as subjects for the second in the CD series “Cape Cod Covers.” As in the case with its predecessor, a portion of the CD sales will benefit Angel Fund New England, an organization of volunteer pilots who provide free transportation to patients in need of life-saving medical care, as well as to their families.
The CD starts off on a high note with Carly Simon (with vocal backing by her son Ben Taylor) and her rendition of “Blackbird.” Simon sets the bar high, but none who follow falter.
Maybe it’s better material. Maybe it’s because the Beatles have more relevance to today’s musicians than Elvis does. But this second edition of “Cape Cod Covers” is far superior to the first.
Unlike last year’s Elvis cover album, which found most contributors taking liberties with the arrangements, none stray far from the originals this time around. In fact, one of the most enjoyable aspects of this album is, considering the sophisticated production in much of the Beatles’ later work, how uncannily close most of the performers come to recreating the Beatles’ sound. “All You Need is Love” by Entrain, “Across the Universe” by Feldspar and “I am the Walrus” by The Mike Dumas Band are just three among many that hit the mark.
While some of the artists on the album are old enough to have experienced Beatlemania, others are singing songs that were hits if not before their mother was born, at least before they were born (as one proud Ticks parent, listening to their angelic harmonies on “Because” said: “The Beatles are in their DNA.”) J. Cournoyer provides the perfect segue, following that selection with the often overlooked instrumental “Flying.”
Not all stick as closely to the originals. Kate Taylor (another in the Taylor clan contributing to the CD) uses pulsating percussion and harmonica to take “Drive My Car” down a different path. Bluesman Maynard Silva slides his guitar and gravelly voice around “Get Back” easing on the urgency of the original with a loping “Truckin’” tempo. Heeby Westwood clears away the clutter of “Helter Skelter” without losing any of the frenetic feeling. And Travis & Shook offer a subdued “No Reply” that recalls Peter and Gordon. (Or is it Chad and Jeremy? I can never get that straight.)
The Rip-It-Ups sound like they’re reaching back to the Beatles’ skiffle roots with their version of “Don’t Pass Me By,” one of several Ringo Starr numbers on the album. Another, the countrified “What Goes On” by Link Montana and the Rough Riders, suits their style to a tee. All they had to do was act naturally. And I can’t believe anybody had more fun recording than The Greenheads did nailing “Boys.”
For baby boomers now listening to the Beatles from the other side of the generation gap the recording doesn’t just bring back memories. Songs such as “She’s Leaving Home” (another dead-on cover. This time by Brian Kerins, with instrumental and vocal backing by Eric Bostrom) likely evoke a different feeling than they did the first time around.
Lest we forget, Earth Junior (“She Said, She Said”), Sarah Swain (I’m Only Sleeping”), Dan Lyons (“The Long and Winding Road”), Earthbound Misfits (“Rain”), The Grab Brothers Band (“Paperback Writer”) and Sara Leketa Alruda (“Don’t Let Me Down) are all right up there with the rest in what is one entertaining piece of plastic.
The album concludes with a we-are-the-world version of “With a Little Help From My Friends” that includes many of the performers on the CD.
