This is one in a series of posts where I have reconstructed ersatz Beatles albums (complete with original album covers) from covers by other artists and (when applicable) the original records the Fab Four themselves covered. Apart from personal taste and a desire for variety, there is really no overriding rhyme or reason to my curation selections, though you can find an articulation of my rationality for the project here.
