The Minnesota Beatle Project is a series of compilations that feature bands and artists hailing from or currently based in Minnesota covering Beatles songs. It has gone through three volumes to date. All proceeds from the sale of the albums goes towards funding music programs in Minnesota public schools. The series of compilations are released through Vega Productions.

This latest volume Volume 3, appealed to me for the cover of “Here Comes The Sun” contributed by Motion City Soundtrack. It’s the only place where the song appears, and the band did a great job keeping the original integrity of the song together while putting their own touches on it. They did not completely crap all over and ruin a classic song like so many bands do on tribute or themed cover albums. This comp was released on CD, vinyl and digitally. The CD and digital version are widely available, but the vinyl version is only being sold by one record store based in Minnesota, Electric Fetus. There were 500 copies pressed on 180 gram red vinyl housed in a gatefold jacket. All copies also come with a digital download code as well.
