Episode #43: We Can Work It Out

Who knew that an episode with R&B covers of the most popular rock band of all time -- that would be the Beatles -- would be, depending who you inquire, the most unusual-sounding Star Time to date? We Can Work It Out starts out maybe too orthodox with the Supremes going by the book, but stick around 'cause things get bloody barmy. Lowell Fulson doing it in the road, Ella Fitzgerald having a Savoy Truffle, the Moments trailing Rocky Raccoon(!), Junior Parker being a truly snaky Taxman, and Nina Simone doing the most heart-stopping rendition of "Here Comes the Sun" to close out. And much more in between. (Star Time is off next week, so amuse yourself elsewhere 'til Nov. 29.)
