The Best Beatles Covers: Al Green, 'I Want To Hold Your Hand'

Welcome to our new feature, PJ Lifestyle Music At Midnight. With this feature we get to play DJ and share some of our favorite music. Hopefully PJ Lifestyle readers will gain some new favorite songs and artists as a result.

On February 9, 1964, the Beatles first performed on The Ed Sullivan Show. Music changed forever with the Beatles’ debut. In honor of the 50th anniversary, PJ Lifestyle Music At Midnight presents a week of great Beatles covers.

Tonight, we’ll begin with a cover of a tune the Beatles performed on The Ed Sullivan Show. Al Green recorded his Green Is Blues album in 1969, but his cover of “I Want To Hold Your Hand” didn’t appear on it until the special edition was released 40 years later.
