Trojan Beatles Tribute [Box Set]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Hardly the most crucial entry in Trojan's ever-growing Box Set series, but Trojan Beatles Tribute contains just enough sweet soul to make it worthwhile for fanatics and more than enough kitsch and camp for the curious. Pat Kelly wrings every last bit of emotion out of "A Hard Day's Night," as does Marcia Griffiths' take on "Don't Let Me Down," but truly dedicated moments like these are few and far between. Plenty of the Fab Four's numbers get rattled off without much effort or insight, but the people at Trojan have done a good job of mixing the track list, dropping the drab numbers between the more interesting ones.

Hardly the most crucial entry in Trojan's ever-growing Box Set series, but Trojan Beatles Tribute contains just enough sweet soul to make it worthwhile for fanatics and more than enough kitsch and camp for the curious. Pat Kelly wrings every last bit of emotion out of "A Hard Day's Night," as does Marcia Griffiths' take on "Don't Let Me Down," but truly dedicated moments like these are few and far between. Plenty of the Fab Four's numbers get rattled off without much effort or insight, but the people at Trojan have done a good job of mixing the track list, dropping the drab numbers between the more interesting ones. The collection goes outside the proper Beatles songbook by including some solo numbers, best of which has to be Byron Lee's suitably over the top "Live and Let Die." Some thin and synthetic ragga numbers spoil the fun, save Dawn Penn's relaxed "Here Comes the Sun" and Desmond Dekker's effervescent "Blackbird." The reggae hardcore are going to cobble together a more purposeful single CD from this all, but Beatles fans with pools, hot tubs, or sunny vacation plans can let the whole breezy set play with little harshing of their mellow.
