The Beatles’ “Yesterday and Today” to get Fab treatment

by Dave Carew

Taking a page from The Long Players’ playbook, Fab will be at 3rd & Lindsley this Saturday night, playing an entire album front-to-back. The (very cool) selection? The Beatles’ Yesterday and Today.

Some of you Beatlemaniacs (like me) out there may remember that Yesterday and Today was not a “real” Beatles album. It was an American (Capitol Records) creation released largely to take advantage of the enormous (and still enduring) popularity of the song “Yesterday.” So American record execs took that classic, added 10 other songs—several of which were already popular and/or which had been deleted from the American versions of Rubber Soul or Revolver—and voila! Yesterday and Today was born.

The cool thing is, despite its sort of “pseudo-album” status, it’s a great album, and in the hands of Fab—easily one of the best Beatles tribute bands in the world—it should sound particularly affecting. Don’t miss it this Saturday night at 7 p.m. at 3rd & Lindsley.

Editor’s Note: “Underground Nashville” covers artists, authors, musicians, poets, political figures, and other compelling people and happenings not typically covered by the mainstream Nashville media. It also presents reflections and commentary from an underground/indie perspective, offering “thoughts from the shadows of a great American city.”
