While there has never been a band more influential than the Beatles, there is no other city more identified with American music than Memphis. The Beatles openly acknowledged their love of Memphis blues, soul and rockabilly. The musical revolution of 50s was unleashed in Memphis in the set the stage for the cultural and musical phenomenon of the Beatles. Fifty years later, their songs prove to be timeless. Fried Glass Onions Memphis Meets The Beatles began as a project imagining what might have happened if the band had recorded at the legendary Stax Records in 1966, as they were planning to do. Many of the songs heard on the first three Fried Glass Onions volumes have an identifiable Memphis twist; fans and critics of both Beatles and Memphis music were overjoyed! Volume 4 Memphis Loves The Beatles, representing the work of over 50 musicians, adds another eleven songs plus a remix of All You Need Is Love to this unique series. As Lennon and McCartney were unparalleled as writers of love songs, this CD delivers love songs exclusively with that Memphis feel.
