    Beautiful music made even better

    “ The MonaLisa Twins are extremely talented musicians and performers. Their covers of 60’s songs are great. I can’t think of one I don’t like better than the original. I found them through a search for Beatles songs on YouTube. I hesitated to click on a couple young girls with guitars tackling “Drive My Car” only to realize The Terrific Twins beautiful voices are every bit as good as the Fab Four – and then some. Each new song and video was like opening bigger and better Christmas presents as a kid.

    Then as I discovered their original music I was equally impressed. Excellent songwriting and musical skills combined with humor, and their pure joy are wonderful to hear and watch. I’d recommend their music to anyone and everyone. Their CD’s have become my go to gift for for those struggling with health or other issues. Over the last few months of getting to know them, Mona, Lisa and their family have impressed me more than anyone in the music industry. They radiate joy, happiness, humor and kindness.

    If all the bands and musicians that now are or ever have been were having performances on the same night, I wouldn’t think twice about choosing the MonaLisa Twins as the concert to go to. If I were to be trapped somewhere and could only choose a few CD’s to listen to, it would be theirs. “

    I have only recently discovered your band on Youtube but I must admit that you are just great ! So I decided to purchase your 3 CDs upon Beatles songs.
    For the moment i just had time to listen to the first one but I don’t have any fear : the two others are also very good. Listening to you I just feel like if we could have been at The Cavern Club, back in the early 60’s !
    It a great pleasure to hear young ladies playing these old songs and they seem to me always to be so modern.

    So, to conclude, I think that I will have soon a look to your others CDs.

    Music Like This Still Exists

    After watching many of your YouTube videos, I purchased Beatles & More Vol 1-3. I’m now listening to your original songs and finding them just as appealing as your cover songs. According to some sources, current music has lost much of its richness in favor of popularity. I’m glad you can produce rich and popular music. I plan to purchase more of your music on CD.

    I think both of you are very charming and I find your family oriented business most pleasing. I hope all of you continue producing this style of music.

    Superb listening pleasure

    Dana Hart (verified owner)

    You will see this review under all 3 volumes of PB&M as they all are superb and the review of this one is equal to the review of the other 2 volumes.

    What amazing talent. You hear many covers on YouTube and there always seems to be that ‘something’ missing. The missing items are love and passion for the music. You can hear and feel the love and passion on the MLT versions.
    The originals were perfect and MLT remain true to them. If you like the original songs you will love these albums and are a must have.
    They are breathing new life into these classics.
    Put these MLT albums on the stereo, sit back and relax and let MLT take you away…

    Great music never dies (provided it gets a bit of help!)

    François (verified owner)

    Ever since I’ve received my overdose (CDs 1 2 and 3 of Play Beatles) of Lisa and Mona’s (figured it’s time to change the order of the names, if only once) interpretations of the Fab Four’s music, I’ve been wondering why this is so captivating. And then I understood. The Beatles released these unique songs when they were in their 20s. And here are the Twins, also in their 20s, giving these songs the energy, the vitality with which they had originally been released.
    Five decades ago, the Beatles reoriented my understanding of music. The LisaMona (dyslexia?) Twins give a welcome new colour to the music I grew up with. Thanks, Ladies.

    Not just the classics, a real Gem

    Tomás Fernandez-Calvo (verified owner)

    Not just a collection of favorite classics. Understated, real genius performances that stand tall next to these monster all time classics. These performances stay close to the originals while providing a fresh and uplifting take on the golden era of 20th century music.

    MonaLisa Twins come out of this endeavor unscathed, matching the grittiness of the originals like in “Revolution” and “Drive My Car”, while keeping all the softness and beauty of towering classics like “God Only Knows”. Coming out unscathed after taking on such monster songs, which hide a depth of complexity under a veneer of simplicity, is an accomplishment that cannot be understated.

    Who can take on Janis Joplin, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, and even The Beatles and stand tall after such performances? Well, the MonaLisa Twins can, and Paul McCartney can as well, but it’s a very short list. For the rest of us, we get the albums, sit back, relax and enjoy the music for our ears.

About the Album

"MonaLisa Twins Play Beatles & More" is a cover compilation of world-known songs from the 60s era. It contains a lot of Beatles songs but you’ll also find covers of the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, the Easybeats, Buffalo Springfield and Janis Joplin on the album.

“Over the last years we have built up quite a stack of YouTube videos, as well as a big live repertoire of cover songs that we perform regularly. We recorded some of them as studio versions where we were able to play more than one guitar each, sing multiple harmonies and on which Mona plays drums and percussion and Dad does the bass. For our live shows, however, we play in the classical 60s band setting with 2 guitars, drums and bass and 2 - 3 voices, sometimes joined by the Ukulele (Lisa) and the blues harp (Mona).”

Depending on the type of recording you'll notice differences in the arrangements. There are studio recordings mixed with live performances and even some acoustic duo recordings, like Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth".

Many tracks on the CD have been on the MonaLisa Twins YouTube channel for years, while others have not been published anywhere before. People from all over the world discovered them by searching for covers of their favorite songs and then kept following the Twins’ musical career. Maybe you’re one of them!

Fans kept asking if they could buy the music somewhere. Some wanted to use it for their weddings or funerals. Music teachers use their covers for their lessons, dancers for their choreographies, ... So the MonaLisa Twins team finally decided to produce this cover compilation before the girls started writing and recording new originals.
