On the heels of the success of the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie late last year and the recent re-release of The Chipmunks Greatest Hits: Still Squeaky After All These Years, which contains three Beatles songs, Capitol Records has now made all of the Chipmunks Beatles recordings available with the re-release of the iconic The Chipmunks Sing The Beatles Hits.
This album was originally released in 1964 by Liberty Records, and contains basically all the Beatles hits that you'd expect from that time, from Love Me Do through A Hard Day's Night. The album was re-released by Liberty on vinyl (minus two songs) in 1982, and was then released on CD and Cassette by Capitol Special Products in 1995. The album has been out of print for about a decade.
According to reports, the original Chipmunks tracks have been remastered for this new release. Great! They can remaster this, but they can't remaster the Beatles!

(By the way, I wanted to title this entry "Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Chipmunk" but unfortunately that's too long for a blog entry title...)
