Saxon - "Paperback Writer" (Beatles cover)

Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look?
It's based on a novel by a man named Lear
And I need a job, so I want to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer!

It's a dirty story of a dirty man
And his clinging wife doesn't understand
His son is working for the Daily Mail
It's a steady job, but he wants to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer!

Paperback writer (writer, writer)

It's a thousand pages, give or take a few (Frère)
I'll be writing more in a week or two (Jacques)
I could make it longer if you like the style (Frère)
I can change it 'round and I want to be a paperback writer (Jacques)
Paperback writer!

If you really like it, you can have the rights (Frère)
It could make a million for you overnight (Jacques)
If you must return it, you can send it here (Frère)
But I need a break, and I want to be a paperback writer (Jacques)
Paperback writer!

Paperback writer (writer, writer)

Λίγες ημέρες μας χωρίζουν από τον καινούριο δίσκο των Saxon. Καινούριος δίσκος, αλλά χωρίς νέα τραγούδια. Οι Βρετανοί metallers θα κυκλοφορήσουν album με διασκευές σε τραγούδια που τους ενέπνευσαν και τους επηρέασαν και η προσέγγισή τους στο τραγούδι των Beatles "Paperback Writer" είναι μεταξύ αυτών...

Δελτίο τύπου: «British Heavy Metal giants, Saxon release a super-charged melodic romp of The Beatles’ ‘Paperback Writer’ as third single from their upcoming cover album, Inspirations, set for release March 19th (Silver Lining Music).

“𝐈 𝐬𝐚𝐰 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐁𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐥𝐞𝐬 𝐨𝐧 𝐓𝐕 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝟏𝟗𝟔𝟑,” enthuses Biff Byford. “𝐈𝐭 𝐰𝐚𝐬 𝐚 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐦𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐦𝐚𝐲𝐛𝐞 𝐈 𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐛𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐚 𝐛𝐚𝐧𝐝!”

Recorded at Brockfield Hall near York, UK, with a firm eye on the old school way using Marshall cabs, Marshall amps, real drums and produced by Biff Byford with Jacky Lehmann recording and mixing, Saxon approach the likes of Motörhead’s ‘Bomber’ (with added whistle!), Toto’s ‘Hold The Line’, Black Sabbath’s ‘Evil Woman’ and a raucous Deep Purple’s ‘Speed King’ with refreshingly warm, unfiltered, “vintage” sounding renditions.

Continues Byford: “𝐖𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐝𝐨 𝐚𝐧 𝐚𝐥𝐛𝐮𝐦 𝐛𝐚𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐨𝐧 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐢𝐧𝐟𝐥𝐮𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐬, 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐛𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐮𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐰𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐰𝐞 𝐝𝐢𝐝 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐝𝐨.”

Byford does, indeed, take on some new vocal challenges, which he duly smashes on the likes of Thin Lizzy’s ‘The Rocker’. The net result is that whether cranking up a heavyweight take on Led Zeppelin's ‘Immigrant Song’ or throwing down AC/DC’s ‘Problem Child’, Saxon does a supreme job of entertaining both themselves and their audience throughout Inspirations.»

  1. Δεν με ξετρελαίνουν οι διασκευές τους τουλάχιστον όσες έχεις ποστάρει μέχρι τώρα αλλά ο δίσκος θα αγοραστεί. Δε γίνεται διαφορετικά.
