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...)
I just want a hoola-hoop

With the success of the Alvin & The Chipmunks movie, Capitol Records just released The Chipmunks Greatest Hits: Still Squeaky After All These Years.
This collection includes The Beatle songs "She Loves You", "Please Please Me", and "Can't Buy Me Love". These 3 Beatle songs were taken from the very successful Chipmunks album entitled "The Chipmunks sings The Beatle Hits".
Hopefully Capitol Records will reissue the complete Beatles Chipmunks album in CD form. (It was reissued once in 1995 but has since gone out of print.)
Additional tracks on the new collection that are worth a mention are Herman's Hermits "I'm Henry The VIII, I Am", The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be late) and The Chipmunk Song with the legendary Blues group Canned Heat (Bonus Track).
