Liked it So Much I Bought Copies to Give to Friends
Milko McGillicuddy | Calgary, Canada | 02/12/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first time I saw this in a music store I thought "Country artists playing the Beatles--give me a break!" But after one listen I was hooked, and I've played this hundreds of times since, only slowing down 'cause I was driving my family nuts playing it over and over. Country artists pull the emotion out of the tunes the way George Martin's productions didn't/couldn't do in the original recordings, and believe me, I'm a major fan of the originals. But the songs took my heart away, especially I'll Follow The Sun by David Ball, Something by Tanya Tucker, If I Fell by Sammy Kershaw, In My Life by Susan Ashton And Gary Chapman, and All My Loving by Suzy Bogguss And Chet Atkins are took my heart away. And the rockers on this disk are fun and irresistible, especially One After 909, Come Together, Oh Darling, and Get Back. I liked this so much I bought several for my friends."
Absolutely wonderful tribute album
J. Pryde | Sedalia, MO United States | 02/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was the first (of many) Beatles tributes I have purchased over the years, and it is by far the best. With a fairly eclectic mix of country and pop artists, there should be something on this album to please any ear. My highlight remains Phil Keaggy and PFR's rendition of "We Can Work It Out." The harmonies are perfect. At the oppisite end of the spectrum is the equally impressive "One After 909" by Willie Nelson. Presented at a great shuffle pace. You will not be disappointed if you pick this up. A truly wonderful collection of Beatles classics."
US country covers of Beatles songs that works brilliantly
Siriam | London United Kingdom | 05/06/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The concept of different music styles being applied to another e.g. Dylan songs having had both spiritual choirs and reggae tribute CDs, is one of those gambles that when it works can be brilliant. This is one of those succesful cases taking the great Beatles songbook and having a range of different country and western (not all of them well known to me) apply a range of interpretations.

The great aspect for me is that the approach in each is so fresh (notably "We can work it out" with a mock string quartet intro by Phil Keaggy & PFR) or just as enjoyable as the original ("I'll follow the sun" by David Ball and "All my loving" by Suzy Bogguss & Chet Atkins especially impressing). Inevitably there are a few bummers - I fear I cannot take Tanya Tucker's "gargling with gravel" earthy voice very often and certainly not on "Something" but overall the quality is so good I would put this CD up there as one of the best Beatles tribute I have heard."
