2005 12 05 - BBCR2 - The Beatles - Rubber Folk

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of arguably The Beatles’ folkiest album Rubber Soul, Mike Harding presents a tribute from the cream of the folk music community of the British Isles. All the artists taking part did so with a huge amount of enthusiasm, some immediately drawn to the classics from the album, others relishing the challenge of the more oblique. In each case the artist was given a completely free hand. Some interpretations are faithful, albeit acoustic versions of the original; others have taken the opportunity to give a completely new feel to the song. From Ralph McTell's Michelle, complete with accordion and ukuleles, to June Tabor's unaccompanied rendition of In My Life, this is a remarkable collection which illustrates not only the great writing skills of The Beatles, but also the inventiveness and creativity of British folk artists
