Order Greg’s Latest CD

Here is a review by Jim Beloff of Flea Market Music (and current king of the ukulele universe):

“Greg Hawkes, formerly of The Cars, has been a presence in the uke community for years. Now he has released this extraordinary, all-instrumental ukulele CD. Blending multiple ukes and studio wizardry, Greg creates magical interpretations of 15 Beatles classics. Both as a musical and technical statement, this CD sets a new standard for what the ukulele can do. Every track is a delight including “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Here Comes The Sun,” “Eleanor Rigby,” “Fool on the Hill,” “Piggies,” “She’s Leaving Home,” “Honey Pie,” and “Yesterday” and “Goodnight.” 15 tracks. Essential!”
