Produced by Sir George Martin and his son, Giles,
they have collaborated to produce a very unusual, yet effective means
of taking what I can best describe as the pallets of the Beatle’s music
and meld them into a fresh sound.
Taking a variety of Beatles songs and overlaying them with each
other not only intertwines their music, but various styles and periods
of the Beatles musical catalog. A good example of this taking Strawberry Fields Forever from
an early John Lennon acoustic demo and transitioning into what I best
describe as a very interesting melding of elements from Hello Goodbye, Baby You’re a Rich Man, Penny Lane and Piggies – all from different albums and times.
Regardless of what you think of the approach, the CD is an important
and daring recompilation of a musical style that shaped and influence
the world’s culture, political views, and many generations.
Their music certainly endures.
Highly Recommended. Best listened to with headphones the first few times.
