Shortly after I brought you last week’s update news was beginning to filter through of the passing of arguably the greatest music producer ever, Sir George Martin. As well as his incredible work with The Beatles, Sir George also produced records for the likes of Shirley Bassey, Jeff Beck, Gerry & The Pacemakers and The Action.
To celebrate his work and pay tribute to his genius I thought I’d bring you something of a classic in the shape of Stevie Wonder’s version of We Can Work It Out. Over the years, this track has regularly featured in the best cover versions of all time and it’s hard to disagree. I bought this many years ago when I was just starting out in the world of vinyl collecting and although I don’t play it very often any more I’m still very fond of it due to the fact it brings together my favourite band (The Beatles) and probably my favourite solo artist of all time, Stevie Wonder. What more could you ask for???
