The Rutles “Blue Suede Schubert”

The Beatles “You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)”
from Past Masters Vol 1&2 (Apple 2009) R —I have never played this one on my show. I did however play the Anthology version with the ska bit in it on Tony C's Biddle Street Beat several years ago when I did a show that looked at the influence of black music on The Beatles' music.
