Paul McCartney (pictured with the vintage Hofner which became his trademark… I have a right handed version of this bass, probably about the same year) is about to release a new album with a song on it called “New” which (I think) sounds much like “Penny Lane” which prompted me to post this cover version by Silver Laughter. This is a selection from our Calgary Beatles Tribute. In my head it sounded more like McCartney than I think it does here in digital format. Regardless, it is a nice version with me on piano, Ken on bass and the boys all singing harmonies.
The first notes are from “Good Day Sunshine” which was the lead in song and fades out on “When I’m Sixty-four”…. which I will be in December! The photo here is the picture cover for the “Strawberry Fields”/”Penny Lane” single (which I owned at one time).
