The Only Album by the Ukulele Orchestra That You'll Ever Need, Vol.3

A new album of newly recorded but classic tracks by the orchestra which has led to millions of views online and our best selling live albums.

On this recording however the “hit” tracks are recorded in the studio. As spontaneous as ever but with all the attention that a top studio can bring to bear.

You’ll hear as never before: plucking, strumming, picking, chugging, the gritty twangs, the bends, the vocal growls, the massive, full-throated roar of the ensemble of ukuleles, all the countermelodies on The Dam Busters March, the hidden backing vocals on Smells Like Teen Spirit, and even the secret bonus track of that groovy Bebop tune: Donna Lee.

If you’ve been a fan then you probably will have all these songs in live versions on various CDs. But not like this. If you’re new to the orchestra then this is the one to get. The Only Album. All the famous cover versions, and a couple of oddities. The Only Album You’ll Ever Need. Vol 3
