RUBBER SOUL & REVOLVER ALBUMS
AS PRESENTED BY GREG HART & GARY BURROWS
Two historic albums, two consummate artists, plus a talented eleven-piece band, equals a night of first-rate, nostalgic and polished entertainment, to a full-house at one of Adelaide’s favourite music venues, The Governor Hindmarsh Hotel.
Gary Burrows and Greg Hart meticulously recreate not one but two legendary Beatles albums, giving us not only a musical history lesson but a lesson in musicianship too.
Expertly MCd by evergreen radio personality Tommy Kaye, the night was as informative as it was fun ….
“Rubber Soul was The Beatles sixth studio album, released in Australia in 1965 on Parlophone label, topping sales charts in Britain for 7 weeks, the US for 6 weeks and here in Australia for 11 weeks.
Ranked fifth on the Rolling Stone Magazine “The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time”.
Today, the Rubber Soul album in pristine condition would sell for about $500.
Revolver was the seventh studio album by The Beatles.
It was released in 1966, also on Parlophone label, the final recording project before their retirement as live performers.
The album cover, designed by Klaus Voormann, won the 1967 Grammy Award for Best Album Cover, Graphic Arts.

There was no need for me to beg, steal or borrow a set list at this gig, just consult the track listings:
Gary Burrows, a distant relative of John Lennon, resembles him in both appearance and voice. His pure love of The Beatles and their music is obvious. Gary is a legend of the music business here in Adelaide and is a performing member of The Boys, The Rustlers and recently, The Masters Apprentices.
Greg Hart has a music theatre background, as his stage presence attests, and is Adelaide’s leading tribute show performer, expertly channelling amongst others Roy Orbison, Johnny O’Keefe, Neil Diamond, Elvis, Tom Jones.
Trish Hart has been a music teacher for over 30 years and has played many lead roles and/or directed in musicals around Adelaide, most recently as Donna Sheridan in the Metropolitan Music Theatre Company’s Mamma Mia.
Trish sang and conducted the singers on stage with the Rolling Stones at Adelaide Oval in 2014.
The cast was a who’s who of South Australian musical talent, expertly musically directed by husband and wife team, Greg and Trish Hart.
