That's awesome! Great to hear the success :)

Regarding the Beatles, how did you feel about Now and Then? It felt to me too muddy and repetitive. Very much a mishmash of each Beatle's post Beatles solo career. But not in a good way.

Thank you! I think that's actually a pretty good synopsis of how it sounds. None of the re-vamped songs, including, "Free as a Bird," sound like the Beatles. That said, I listened to Now and Then with no anticipation of greatness. I find it to be a pleasant tune. It's popped into my head a few times this past week. It's a good track, not great. I'm glad it exists though.

I just listened to, “now and then,” again and I have to say, I think it’s actually a really good tune. Melancholy and hopeful all at once. Maybe it doesn’t sound like the Beatles we knew, but it’s the closest to what, I can only guess, the Beatles would have sounded like had they regrouped in 2023. It’ still has that Lennon/McCartney yin/yang, sweet/sour thing going on. I dig it. It’s growing on me.
