Howard Stern Details All-Star Tribute to Beatles’ ‘Revolver’

I have enough backlog listening to many audio materials I downloaded. This is one of them. Listening to it, i thought I should get the details of the show. And, voila! it’s a collection of covers of the Revolver album. A gem.

Dinosaur Jr’s J Mascis (“Doctor Robert”), Gov’t Mule (“And Your Bird Can Sing”), Jewel (“Eleanor Rigby”), Grouplove (“For No One”) and Living Colour (“Tomorrow Never Knows”) are also among the artists that take part in “Howard Stern’s Tribute to the Beatles’ Revolver,” scheduled to premiere on SiriusXM’s Howard 101 on October 7th.

Grace Potter, the Milk Carton Kids, Joe Bonamassa, O.A.R., Rachael Yamagata, Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear round out the episode’s lineup.

According to Billboard, the recordings for Stern’s Revolver tribute were made in various locations. Some acts, like O.A.R. and Living Colour, laid down their contributions while visiting Stern’s SiriusXM studio in New York.

Others chose more creative venues to record their contributions: Bonamassa’s “Taxman” was recorded live at Liverpool’s Cavern Club, a Beatles haunt, while Taylor’s “Here, There and Everywhere” was recorded in a hotel closet while the singer was on tour.

Revolver, Number Three on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, celebrated its 50th birthday on August 5th.
