A Tribute To John Lennon By 101 Strings

A Tribute To John Lennon By 101 Strings
Alshire S-5380

I celebrate the addition of my 101st follower by posting a fab sample from this relatively obscure 101 Strings which was release after Lennon's death in 1980.

There are a fair number of 101s that are great fun to collect. This is one of them. Sure... for the most part, the arranger struggles to interpret classic Beatles tunes and... die hard Lennon fans must have recoiled to Alshire profiting off his death like this. The sound is somewhat dated by 1980s standards. However, we enjoy light pop and curious approaches to well known pop songs up here in The Attic no matter what the date or circumstances.

  1. Glad they thought it was a tribute to John Lennon. Half of the titles are Paul McCartney songs...--Bill


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
