GUEST,Tunesmith You've Got to be Joking! - greatest blues singers (239* d) RE: You've Got to be Joking! - greatest blues singers 06 Oct 18


First of all. I was there. In Liverpool in the early 60s, and we used to pride ourselves on how American we could sound!
Now, I've heard "so called " experts suggesting that The Beatles "experimented" with using American accents. That is nonsense!
The Beatles simply opened their mouths and out it came. They would never have consciously tried to sing in American accents...that's just the way it came out.
   And, they would have never have considered singing in an English accent. It just wouldn't have occured to them. They were singing American covers, I think almost totally, until Epstein and talk of recording contracts came along.
Of course, in certain number...like McCartney's Little Richard numbers - we have a vocalist consciously trying to sound as American as possible!

Listen to that scouse accent...not!
