ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN

Start your weekend with The Beatles and their foot-stomping cover of Chuck Berry's Roll Over Beethoven. I've loved this track ever since I was a little kid. When I hear George Harrison's vocals, I can't help but imagine the cover art to the US LP, The Beatles Second Album. I played it over and over on my blue and white, portable record player. Man, those albums sounded great through that single speaker. Go to iTunes and check out the 2009 remastered recording. Chuck Berry originally released the song on Chess Records in 1956- a golden year in Rock history. Chuck is still playing, and there are tickets available for his May 25th show! You can learn more at his website here. Happy Weekend from Spy Vibe!
