Andy Ellison of John’s Children (a band in which Mark Bolan played) and later of punk rock band The Radio Stars (There are no Russians in Russia) did a very interesting cover of Help! on his 1968 outing Cornflake Zoo, I have the album, but can’t find a clip.
As you mentioned them, I’d like to say I think Spooky Tooth were a fabulous band and I used to buy all their record when I was knee high to a grasshopper. I was lucky enough to get a copy of their vinyl box set a few years ago. The original version of Spooky Tooth was called the VIPs and had a young keyboard player called Keith Emerson. Later without Nice Keith they became Art and then with the addition of another keyboard man who could sing too, Gary Wright, became Spooky Tooth. Gary and Mike Harrison’s vocals help make Spooky Two one of the very best albums in my collection.
I am the Walrus opens the album The Last Puff (an album without Gary) and is mainly cover versions. If you haven’t already I’d recommend trying some of their self-penned tracks such as Self Seeking Man on You Broke My Heart So I Busted Your Jaw.
