Listen to DON'T LET ME DOWN by Dillard & Clark.

So that's nearly a month of Beatles covers for you, should be enough for almost anybody I think!

We're ending with a wonderful take on another classic. Don't Let Me Down, when it was released, was perhaps a little raw to make a big Hey Jude-style impact, but it's truly one of the standout John songs, and I think recognized as such by a lot of Beatles fans.

Dillard & Clark were a great act in their own right, and their take on Don't Let Me Down is as good as it can be, eschewing John's more desperate vocal for a sound of apprehension or resignation even. One I could listen to all day.

Happy July, see you in August!
