Richard Kersten was born in Newcastle, England, to a British mother and a German father. When Richard was eleven years old, his family moved to Frankfurt, Germany. He listened to American rock ‘n’ roll on AFN radio and then … the Beatles. Their music changed his life and never let him go.
Eventually Richard became a musician, played in various international projects and was a founding member of the Beatles Revival Band, popular mainly in Germany, which he left after a few years. Merely replaying songs of his idols did not fill him up.
He wanted to take the next step, write his own songs and record them with great musicians and modern
studio equipment. He invested in a recording studio with 24-track technology and wrote hundreds of
songs. One day he told his friend Marcus Ghoreischian about his idea to record an album inspired by the Beatles. The experienced drummer, producer and studio owner was thrilled with Richard’s suggestion to draw inspiration from the songs and music of the Beatles.
However, the idea was not to replicate the masterpieces of the ingenious Brits, whose artistic level remains unattainable in his eyes. It was more about the question, what would Lennon, Harrison and Co. have done, if they had had access to today’s standard recording technology… The material was created in 2005 and 2006, carefully mixed and for various reasons not released at the time – except for a private CD edition of 200 copies. Bear Family Records® releases this little lost grand opus worldwide on a high-quality 180-gram vinyl record.
