Horn man releases classy Beatle tribute (8/27/00) Jim Horn, who has recorded with all four Beatles on separate occasions and played with George at the Concert for Bangladesh and on the Dark Horse tour, has released his own Beatle tribute called, simply, "Jim Horn: A Beatles Tribute" on his own label, Jim Horn Records. Horn's album is, not surpisingly, one very classy effort.

The track list: "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away"; "Let It Be"' "We Can Work It Out"; "Something"; "I Feel Fine"; "Yesterday"; "And I Love Her"; "In My Life"; "Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da"; "Mull of Kintyre"; "From Me To You"; "Don't Let Me Down"; "Eleanor Rigby"; "The Ballad of John and Yoko."

The album features a top-notch band that includes guest stars Duane Eddy and Delbert McClinton and includes pics of Horn with George, Ringo and Paul.

Horn has also released a second disc, "The Hit List," with covers of hits he originally performed on, including "Cloud Nine" and "Got My Mind Set On You," plus covers of other songs, including "Summer Breeze," "Goin' Up the Country," "Rosanna," "Delta Lady" and "Good Vibrations." This disc features guest appearances by Leon Russell, Dash Crofts, Michael McDonald and Dobie Gray. (If you're wondering, no Beatles are credited with performances on either disc. Horn is pictured with George, Ringo and Paul are on both.)

Both discs -- priced at $15 each plus $3.50 each for shipping and handling -- are available through
The Record Store or by calling 1-877-GET-MYCD. You can check out Horn's website at http://www.jimhorn.com.
