As a special treat, famed Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick—who recorded the original Revolver sessions—lovingly records Nellie McKay’s inventive new take on “Yellow Submarine” for this project.
We're also adding an imaginary album, to the mix: Frankie Siragusa Plays: Goodbye My Love - Lost Songs of The Beatles Covered and Rediscovered, newly rendered recordings of songs that members of The Beatles wrote, yet never released while the group was still working together. For this first time experience of these lost gems, Frankie Siragusa's choice of instruments mirrors The Beatles' own, performing alongside a 'supergroup' comprised of Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, R.E.M., Big Star), Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. (Jellyfish, Beck), and Keith Slettedahl (The 88, Ray Davies Band).

In the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, under the influence of their now legendary friend Gram Parsons, The Rolling Stones brought a rough-hewn, country music feel to their work which can be argued is the blueprint for the alternative country music of today.
We celebrate that influence with this release covering some of The Rolling Stones’ lesser known works, with a few classics mixed in, by the best alt country artists on the scene including: Great Lake Swimmers, Matthew Ryan, Cowboy Junkies, Hem, Everest, The Bittersweets, Giant Sand, Lee Harvey Osmond and Mary Gauthier, Over the Rhine, The Handsome Family, Blue Mountain, Brian Ritchey, Neal McCarthy & Ivo Matos, Barbara Kessler, and Anders Parker.

"Unlike most tributes that hit the streets these days, Tease Torment Tantalize dares to take liberties with the material, often veering sharply from Morrissey’s somber soliloquies while moving into other realms far removed from the Smiths’ gilded tomes. It’s an intriguing experiment at the very least, but given the imaginative treatments offered here, it’s also a new experience entirely." - Lee Zimmerman in Pop Matters
