What a joy it is to listen to MLT. So good to hear these classic songs sung and played so clean and fresh. I could never tire of listening to MLT recordings.

What can I say, You have made another GREAT CD covering The Beatles, Stones, Hollies, Lovin Spoonful, Everly Brothers and Nancy Sinatra. All the songs are great. I really loved the way you performed Bus Stop, Two of Us, I’ll follow the Sun, Wake up little Susie and I’ll be Back. Can’t wait to listen to volume 3.. Great Music…

Loved this CD along with all their Cd’s. Grew up with the Beatles and since I am now past the age of 64 loved the memories of Beatles hits. Wish I had discovered you two sooner. Good Luck and keep it up.

I happened by chance to catch the MonaLisa Twins on YouTube and kept coming back for more. I ordered all of their CDs at once, so I have been pleasantly listening to them all.

This CD is currently in rotation and I like how on the last track I can hear The Twins sing “I’ll be back again…” then the CD starts over and they are indeed back again.

It is a nice mixture of live and studio music. The live songs show that The Twins are really that good without overdubs.

My favorites tunes have to be “Bus Stop” and “I Saw Her Standing There.”

I became a fan last year when I discovered, and purchased, the original “Beatles and More”. I loved your covers of those songs and having the opportunity to hear more, I could not pass it up. You are both truly talented and do nothing but justice to the Beatles and the other artists whose work you cover. Excellent, enjoyable, brings back my youth and you do John, Paul, George, and Ringo proud. Love it!!!

I rather accidentally discovered MLT and my jaw dropped…….what a fresh new talent. These ladies are so talented and they actually sing and play without auto tune or other tricks. A sheer delight for someone with a keen musical ear.
Thanks again Mona and Lisa!

I just listened to Volume 2 of Beatles & More this morning and I gotta say that you did these songs justice! They were done so well and I do plan to purchase more from your music store. Looking forward to listening to Volume 3! (I don’t have Volume 1 yet. But, I saw the songs listed and I like what I saw! You two are amazingly talented ladies! Keep up the good work!

I discovered the MonaLisa Twins a few months ago, searching Beatles tunes on YouTube. As I learned more and more about them, I noticed a sort of trend in that very many of their now followers came upon them in much the same way. I spent a few weeks watching videos and interviews, as well as other non-music videos. All this is to preface the fact that I was aware of the cover tunes that were released in 2018 on The MonaLisa Twins Play Beatles & More, volumes 2 & 3 before I recently acquired both discs. I decided to get these because I could only listen to the songs at home, and wanted to be able to take them with me in the car, where I actually listen to most of my music.
The thoughtfulness that is evident in the arrangements seem typical of MLT. They always choose a song that first, they love, and then can perform in their own way while still paying respect to the original. Many a time you can find someone posting that the MLT cover of a song is superior to the original. While that observation is completely subjective, it isn’t necessarily wrong. On the MonaLisa Twins website you’ll find quotes from some who wrote the songs being covered that are quite complimentary. That in itself is testimony to the MonaLisa Twins understanding of the original, and considered application of their appreciation for it to their cover.
“Paint It Black” is a prime example, with two guitars, two voices, and Mona slapping a crate. How creative, different and yet familiar. There’s no question what song it is, as sometimes happens with a cover like “Little Wing” as interpreted by Derek & The Dominos. You need a few times listening to identify the Hendrix classic, or at least I did. None of that here, though, nor in any of the MLT covers.
The song that shot me into the MLT universe, “If I Fell”, is obviously the Fab Four staple, but the treatment it is afforded here is stunning. First, the tempo is a bit slower than the original which allows maximum exposure to the MLT signature harmonies. Percussion is a shaker, and they added some cello that may have Mr. McCartney slapping his forehead, if he’s heard this. For shame if he hasn’t.
One of the best surprises was the inclusion of a few songs that I hadn’t seen online, such as “The Night Before”. I distinctly remember thinking that would be one great song for the MonaLisa Twins to release, and somehow, they were ahead of me on that one. “White Room” is another pleasant surprise on Volume 3, with those harmonies again, filling in for Clapton’s guitar during the introduction, but with no lack of electric licks throughout, and Bakerlike drumming, again familiar yet distinct.
Most of these songs are available free on the internet. Check them out and order the discs, you will want to have them available to you full time.

About the Album

"MonaLisa Twins play Beatles & more Vol. 2" is the second cover compilation album released by the MonaLisa Twins. It consists of 13 of their favourite songs from mainly the 60s era, with a lot of Beatles songs but you’ll also find covers of Nancy Sinatra, The Lovin' Spoonful, The Hollies, The Everly Brothers and The Rolling Stones on the album.

“After releasing our first cover compilation album back in 2014 we kept recording more and more of our favourite songs from the 60’s. We have focused a lot on our original music too, but the joy of playing around with the songs that made us fall in love with music in the first place never stopped.

People kept asking where they could purchase our cover songs, so we decided to continue the 'MonaLisa Twins play Beatles & more' cover album series.”

The album features studio recordings as well as a few live performances, like “These Boots Are Made For Walking” by Nancy Sinatra which the Twins recorded during their 2 year residency at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool.

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 new versions of their favourite songs and then kept following the Twins’ musical career. Maybe you’re one of them! 

 You can also find Vol. 1 and Vol. 3 in the store.
