Orchestra in Rock n Roll

Paul McCartney sings with a string quartet on "Yesterday" from the early years with the Beatles. His soundtrack for the "Family Way" was the first solo album by one of the Beatles album in 1966. We hear "She's Leaving Home" from Sargent Pepper's, and "Day in the Life", with orchestrations influenced by their producer George Martin. We hear "As Tears Go By" nad "You Can't Always Get What You Want" from the Rolling Stones.

The use of choir by the Stones influenced me in original composition called "Holy Terror" from "Revelations: Book II" which I recorded in 2000 with lyrics by Ron English. I sing the lead vocal and play the piano, bass by Don Martin and drums by Adrian Harpham.
