The Beatles Vs. Don Ho

Melvin, 1979

One of the most fun Beatlegs in history, from the parody cover to the eclectic contents. Nearly everything appears elsewhere in better quality, but the opening and closing tracks can't be topped!

  1. Thanks for this version.
    I have a reissue entitled "Silver Lining" with identical content, only different cover. This was one of my favorite bootlegs mostly because it included the Residents' single "Beyon The Valley"...

  2. I picked up a copy of "Silver Lining" in 1985. Anybody know what year it came out?

  3. "Silver Lining" came out in 1981.

  4. "Silver Lining" was an unauthorized issue via the record pressing plant, which was making a little loot on the side using the LP stamper paid for by Melvin Records!

  5. Links dead. Any chance to re-up, good sir?

  6. Links for both sides are dead, could you re-up whn you have a chance? Thanks!

  7. Can you please repost both links for this great LP? Thank you!
