The Beatles Honored With New Album ‘Fab Fan Memories’
Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of the launch of the the Beatles. To celebrate what many are calling the "Year of the Beatles," fans and friends of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr are honoring the iconic group with the release of a new album, 'Fab Fan Memories.' The CD/audio book features stories, songs, recollections and fond thoughts from celebrities and fans from around the world.
The 'Fab Fan Memories' features narration from Louis Harrison, older sister of the late George Harrison. It also includes some of the Beatles biggest hits, performed by the Liverpool Legends of Branson, Mo., and the WannaBeatles out of Nashville, Tenn.
"I helped tell the Beatles' story from the fans' perspective," says Louise. "I hope all who listen will recognize the love and sincerity."
"The partnership with Louise and the Liverpool Legends was a wonderful way to celebrate the Beatles' legacy," adds WannaBeatles' member Dennis Scott, who produced the project with his fellow bandmates. "Louise is the perfect host for this project. She was instrumental in paving the way for the Beatles' early success in America ... who is better qualified to both observe and comment on their incredible journey?"
In addition to the musical portion of the album, there are plenty of heartfelt memories and experiences shared by fans and famous friends of the Beatles, including Nancy Lee Andrews, Janis Ian, Phil Keaggy, Melissa Manchester, Ken Mansfield, Alan Menken, Wesley Orbison, Bruce Spizer, Bill Swan and Rod Davis of the Quarrymen. The album contains more than an hour of dialog and music.
