    Orange
    No doubt, you could expect a great album, but it was more amazing, to be heard always, I really appreciated it. The music “Still A Friend Of Mine” is my reference!

    Great 60s covers!

    James Lythgoe (verified owner)

    I agree that the 60s had the greatest music, and I’m glad Mona Lisa Twins are adding their own style to it. The Beatles songs are done stylishly- best I’ve ever heard! The others were good too. To be honest, The Buffalo Springfield song “For What it’s worth” was not my favorite, although it was done well. It just didn’t fit in with the positive vibes of the rest of the collection. Generally speaking, I don’t care for CSN&Y in any combination. Everyone has their own tastes though. I’m looking forward to hearing more by the wonderfully talented Mona Lisa Twins! My order arrived here in the US very quickly too! I’m very satisfied. Keep up the good work 🙂

    One of the best albums ever.

    David Brandenburg (verified owner)

    I loved the Beatles growing up and these covers make this music exciting again. I have never heard these songs done in such a way that it is like it is all new. The harmonies are so close you think it is impossible. The instrumentation is right on and they play most of the instruments. Don’t wait a second order their albums and enjoy these songs. It is definitely a treat.

    MonaLisa-Twins Cover Songs

    Jerry Chamness (verified owner)

    These are great covers. A lot of the cover songs are better than the original, in my opinion. I love this album.

    What a Truly Fun CD!

    Ed Brown (verified owner)

    I first found Mona and Lisa on You Tube with the first video I watched being their amazing cover of “God Only Knows”. That Beach Boy classic is one of my top 5 songs of all time and I was completely knocked out by the MLT version. It was very respectful and so smartly done as Papa Rudi produced it very sparingly concentrating on the girls beautiful vocals, guitar and ukulele. it works on every level and completely captivated me.

    Of course my very next move was to go to the MLT YouTube channel to see what else was out there. I spent the rest of the evening digesting and thoroughly enjoying their cover versions of Beatle songs and other classic 60 tunes. I was so pleased to see they had done wonderful covers of “Drive My Car”, “In My Life”, “Blackbird”, “In My Life” and on and on. I remember thinking to myself how I wished some of these songs would be on a CD for me to enjoy and share with my friends.

    Well sure enough when I logged into their website for the first time I found this classic CD. The song selection is so well thought out and the production is top notch, showing not only the girls’ talents but also allowing the sparkle of their personalities to shine though. You can tell they are true fans of the songs they play and the excitement of their performances bursts out of the speakers. All the songs I mention above are included on the CD along with strong versions of Buffalo Springfield, Janis Joplin, Doors and Stone classics. It is the type of CD to enjoy with any celebration or on those days when you need a little pick me up. A smile is guaranteed to come to you!

    To close one of my big hopes is to someday see the Twins live, as I know it will be an amazing experience. Until then I have this CD to listen to and dream about the day when that will come. 🙂

    AN MLTBUZZING WORTHY GROOVY KINDA MUSIC GEM !!!!

    Jacki Hopper

    First off, this CD is definitely a must-have keeper complimentary companion for your MLT MUSIC COLLECTION….YOU GOTTA HAVE IT !!
    This particular collection of both LIVE and STUDIO recordings of covers not only resonates and amplifies your musical ear hearing pleasure, it can be known to cause singing along, toe tapping, air guitaring and /or drumming, etc . With shared lead vocal duties from Mona and Lisa, and then a full band on the live stuff this is quite stellar. You truly feel as though you were at the shows( perhaps some of you were 😉 ) and/or in studio witnessing such fine musicianship . You will be infinitely satisfied , lifetime guaranteed with this CD .

    Now onwards to the review:

    #1~ ” REVOLUTION : Simply WOW on this …..The MLT take on this one, just sends goosebumps of sheer bliss up my spine. The full power of all the instrumentations, predominately the guitars and vocals, well that in itself, is enough , no further commentary necessary…

    #2~ ” FRIDAY ON MY MIND ” : Though I was not familiar with this particular song, I loved it from the get-go and afterwards looked up original, Hands down , I prefer MLT’s rendition of this. Again, full bodied sound and it shows, Awesome !

    #3~ ” JOHNNY B. GOODE” : OK, ADMIT IT, COME ON NOW, who after or even while listening to this found themselves singing along, air guitaring, etc…it’s hard not to be tempted, they’ve done Chuck Berry proud on this. Quite masterful guitar efforts put forth here and equally done so in the vocals dept…..TOP NOTCH , THUMBS UP on this one…Yes indeedy !!

    #4~ ” THIS BOY” : There is just something spectacular that occurs when MLT do slower paced songs, vocally it just reverberates, resonates, it completely grasps hold on you. and I’m pleased to say that it had such effect when listening to it .

    #5~ ” IN MY LIFE ” : I’ve always enjoyed this one , whether it’s the Beatles , or whoever else has covered it but yet again, the simplistic version of just vocal/harmonies/guitar, etc…it truly captures the essence of the song, takes one back to the days when….

    #6~ ” BLACKBIRD” : This song has a haunting vibe to it and once more, the MLT MAGIC was invoked, and it came out beautifully done, again a simple, rawness but effective.

    # 7~ ” FOR WHAT ITS WORTH” : This one is a classic, original and now MLT-ed style…..This one strikes a CHORD ( pardon the PUN 😉 ) , vocal-wise, guitar work…it just speaks on it’s own merits…

    #8~ ” DRIVE MY CAR” : Alrighty then, we have ourselves a surefire humdinger winner here, …What’s not to love about this ?! A favourite for sure, upbeat, whimisical, quirky , goodtime kinda FunkyGroovy….A perfect PostivityPickMeUpper !!

    #9~ ” CAN’T BUY ME LOVE ” : You can definitely hear the BEATLES-esque going on here…there’s no denying it… Fabtastic .

    #10~ ” WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS ” : Well this speaks for itself, in a class all its own, George would be most pleased of it, I think, I know I am, I believe it to be my all time fave off this CD . To me, this is as equal calibre to George’s take . You”ve done good 😀

    #11~ ” GOD ONLY KNOWS ” : I ‘m a Beach Boys Fan , yes, I admit it…but I like the Female take on this, hearing female voices as opposed to all guys, it just works…..A phenomenal version, Kudos .

    #12~ ” PEOPLE ARE STRANGE ” : Groovy Funky Vibe is what you get here, and that’s good…..Song’s spirit channeling through clearly .

    #13~ ” DAY TRIPPER” : Another of my all time fave Beatles songs done with such awesome enthusiasm, definitely rocking and rolling along here.

    #14~ ” THE LAST TIME ” …LOVE this…I think they bettered it than the STONES did .. Just supreme take on all angles in the efforts made here.

    #15~ ” MERCEDES BENZ” : Janis Joplin, she should be proud of this, I am…The gals nailed this totally, and Mona ‘s Blues Harp tidbits…WooHoo !!

    In summary, this CD yielded an abundance of Groovy and Rock and Roll !! Worthy of having, please get your copy and enjoy !!

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.
