Out May 8: Come Together - Black America Sings Lennon & McCartney

Cool cover. Order now from Amazon.

Details from Ace Records:

The unanimous acclaim for and success of Ace's recent 'How Many Roads: Black America Sings Bob Dylan' project pretty much guaranteed a follow-up at some point. Its release immediately instigated a high level of consumer interest in whether or not we were planning any further volumes in the series. Truth to tell, it wasn't meant to be a series originally, but the suggestion of Black America singing other notable rock icons of the 60s was too good to ignore. So it is that we now present a selection of interpretations by leading black American artists of the compositions of John Lennon and Paul McCartney.
