    Superb listening pleasure

    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!)

    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 F 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.

    Some of the best covers I've ever heard

    George Paine III (verified owner)

    This was a fantastic album & a great intro to one of the best bands I’ve ever heard. Every song on this album is great & my personal favorite is While My Guitar Gently Weeps which is also my 2nd favorite George Harrison song.

    All you need is MonaLisa Twins play Beatles & more.

    Howard Bedwell (verified owner)

    Perfect covers here from the MonaLisa Twins. I can only endorse what other reviewers have already said in previous posts. It’s great to hear Beatle’s and other sixties music brought to life with such care and passion. This is a must for your MLT collection.

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.
