Mark. Yes. Liked it so much I almost thought it was the orig. So I had to turn it off because it wasn't.

I do like your orig stuff, and yes I'm sure this took a hellofalot of effort to put together.. but I once read.."If your going to re-do someone else's song, make sure that you do it better than they did it!

I was actually playing this track a couple of months back and being in awe that it was the greatest production ever
So you've got your work cut out then lol..Of course its not as good as the original-that would be impossible..

Regardless of the reasons for doing it,the attention to detail's astonishing here...I couldn't do this in a million years..

Your vocal performance is great 'koff..Not a total impersonation of Lennon-but sounding really natural and confident anyways..

The most obvious way this fails in its determination to be a total copy tho is the cello/horn samples..

Those biting aggressive staccato cellos n horns are almost impossible to get right with a sampler (i know- i've tried ),so the listener hears full well they're synth n the spell is broken abit..

Impressive attempt anyways..

Thanks again, everyone for your time and comments. Definitely more fun for the four of us than for the listeners.

fwiw, I found this laying around on a disk. I downloaded it from somewhere, sometime back .

It's the cello and horn take from the original.

It might be fun to try to overlay it on your version. I know it kind of defeats the purpose, but..

I really like this song, Mark, as a great song. Your cover is pretty cool, you get all the parts in, and sung so effectively.

There may or may not be more vocal harmony on the original, in my mind there is, and it is very pretty and kind of hard to replicate. I invariably try (it is very challenging!) to sing it whenever I hear the song, but I have no surprise new Garrison version today!

Each of us has our own muse, and you just enjoy covering songs you love. And of course you must be learning very cool things that go on to become part of your original music. The drums, for instance, in this song, are just unusual. Perfect but who would have thunk?

The use of the big cello and horns. The total not in a box rock song, pop only because it is/was so popular. Popular because it is so melodically appealing. Vocal effect, doubled in spots is sounding excellent. And I'm glad you've got some backwards stuff going on. In the spirit.

I probably should cover more songs for practice, but alas, my muse don't play that game, at least not compulsively. Who knows, though, one morning I may arise and find I have a burning desire to do Return of the Grievous Angel.
