Bring Back the Beatles was as close to a commercial album as David Peel had ever generated up to that time. Not quite everything here directly concerns the Beatles, and if Peel isn't quite as animated as he is when going after a political target, his songwriting ability isn't restricted at all, and in the relatively lush production he manages to come up with some surprisingly good (and excruciatingly funny) pop songs, including "Coconut Grove"; he also turns in a rocking version. of John Lennon's "Imagine," reimagined as a punk piece.

David Peel (born David Michael Rosario) is a New York-based musician who first recorded in the late 1960s with Harold Black, Billy Joe White, and Larry Adam performing as David Peel and The Lower East Side Band. His raw, acoustic "street rock" with lyrics about marijuana and "bad cops" appealed mostly to hippies. His Album "Have a Marijuana" peaked at 186 on the Billboard Charts. Peel was rediscovered by John Lennon in 1971 as the early seventies continued it's swing towards the youth revolution. Lennon was said to have befriended Peel when David was playing with his ragtag hippie band in New York's Washington Square Park (Greenwich Village).
Peel re-released the album himself in 2005 under his own label, the winkingly titled – ho ho! – Orange Records International. Mary Hopkin, ‘Postcard’ (1969). Here’s one of Apple’s most telling releases. While David Peel and cohorts represent John Lennon’s influence, this record has Paul McCartney’s fingerprints all over it; they’re both folk albums, but they’re cut from completely different cloth, as McCartney picked out simple, beloved numbers (such as covers of Donovan) for the Welsh musician.
