Playlist | The Beatles Soul

Welcome back Andy Kahn from EditorsMix.FM to share another playlist we think you'll enjoy.

With word coming this year of another round of reissues being pressed on vinyl of the early The Beatles records I was inspired to put together this collection of songs originally performed by The Beatles. The 20-song playlist below, The Beatles Soul, includes takes on The Fab Four by some of the all-time great soul and R&B artists.

While many of the artists represented on the playlist heavily influenced The Beatles themselves, it’s apparent that lads from Liverpool had an impact on their influencers as well. Across just under an hour and half of songs you’ll find the likes of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Diana Ross and Ray Charles – all for your listening pleasure.
