Is it possible to link from the Beatles to any other band or artist in the world in only five steps? There is only one way to find out. This one links from the Beatles to Isaac Scott in five simple steps.
1. Beatles – That’s All Right Mama
Written by and originally performed by Arthur Crudup, the Beatles recorded their version of the song in the early 1960’s for the BBC and it is available on their Live At The BBC Album. It has also been recorded by Elvis.
2. Elvis Presley – That’s All Right Mama
Arguably the song that started it all for Elvis Presley. His version of the Arthur Crudup penned song was recorded in the 1950’s but it didn’t become a hit until it was available for download in 2004 when it reached number 3 in the UK charts. Moving on now, there are a number of songs that the Elvis Presley has covered, and plenty of his songs that have been covered – like the following song.
3. Carl Perkins – Blue Suede Shoes
This Carl Perkins penned tune, a big hit for Elvis Presley was his one and only UK chart hit reaching a peak of number 10 in May 1956. Apart from the Elvis Presley cover version, it has also been recorded by the following.
4. John Lennon – Blue Suede Shoes
The John Lennon solo version of the Carl Perkins song Blue Suede Shoes can be found on his album Lennon (Disc 4). Of course John Lennon used to be in the Beatles and plenty of bands have covered their songs!
5. Isaac Scott – Help
The Isaac Scott cover version of the John Lennon penned Beatles song Help was released in 1982.
