Overview

Pedal-steel guitarist Goldmark has an extraordinary talent for picking out melodies, note for note; this time he slips and slides around the Beatles in a 12-song tribute. Goldmark also uses lap steel, EBow, dobro and wah-wah to create the unearthly guitar effects on some of the carefully chosen tracks, as on "Awaiting on You All," plucked from George Harrison's All things Must Pass. The mournful "I'm Only Sleeping" sounds as if it could be floating through the breeze at a Hawaiian luau. And the Beatles' instrumental, "Flying," sounds more natural here than it did on Magical Mystery Tour. Goldmark's fellow players add to the album's mastery. An essential recording for Beatles collectors and fans of the traditional, stringed instrument.

This is is an interesting style, with Goldmark choosing particularly melodic Beatles songs to play on steel guitar. Songs like I Will and Baby's In Black sound great on this instrument. Joe even includes some lesser known songs written by the Beatles, such as George Harrison's Awaiting On You All and Bad To Me, written by Lennon and McCartney. Production is handled well, too, with a clever title and cover. Very original and interesting.
