I’ll Cry Instead

I’ll Cry Instead” is a John Lennon composition credited to Lennon–McCartney, and recorded by the Beatles for the soundtrack to their film A Hard Day’s Night.

Joe Cocker’s first single was a cover of this song in 1964. Johnny Rivers included a cover on a 1965 album. Chet Atkins recorded an instrumental version in 1966.

My instrumental arrangement is based on the distinctive country-swing feel of the original Beatles version.

Gone Gone Gone

We now resume our regular, non-holiday programming.

“Gone Gone Gone” was released in 1964. It never cracked the top-40. But If you can sit still while listening to this, you need medical attention.

Seriously, many younger music fans need to take some time to learn about Phil & Don. They were were brilliant.

The Ventures covered this tune on their 19665 album “The Ventures Knock Me out”.

Trambone

“Trambone” was a track on Chet Atkins’ 1962 album “Back Home”. It went on to become one of his signature tunes. Duane Eddy and the Ventures covered it as well.
