Taking My Time

The Beatles Revival Band is a german cover band, founded 1976 in Frankfurt, Germany. The Beatles Revival Band has been called “the most successful cover band ever” but before they started recording only covers they made an album with self written tunes in the style of the Beatles. Listen to it five times and you start to wonder why they ever continued as a coverband and not as a rockband with their own songs. If you like Beatles, Klaatu, Oasis, The Smithereens and/or Crowded House (just to name a few) this is for you.
The Beatles Revival Band is Bobby Matthes, Klaus Larish and Christian Engel. Jim (James) Hopkins-Harrison (of the band Lake) is gueststarring on leadvocals (tracks 2, 3 and 8).
Tracks: 01 Cucumber / 02 Taking My Time0 / 03 Done My Time0 / 04 Shalala / 05 Without You / 06 Not Only Love / 07 This Girl / 08 Stick To You / 09 Keep On Smiling / 10 Rosa / 11 Bringing Me Down / 12 Not What I Thought / 13 Old Brown Guitar / 14 Come On, Jenny

Thank you very much for this disc that i know next to nothing before your post.
There is another German band derivative of the Beatles with a hit in the 80s, i think they were called Münchener Freiheit and the single was "Keeping The Dream Alive".

It's another shame that you didn't read the "how to un-ace" help page. You can find it on the right side of my blog.
