Not A Bad Collection
J. GENIO | Earth | 07/28/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Now here is a collection of artists paying tribute to the Beatles. This is a worthwhile CD to buy. You have some of the best acts in the business covering Beatles songs. I would have rated this CD five stars. However, it is missing a few classic covers such as the Hooters rendition of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and Joe Cockers gut-wrenching version of "With A Little Help From My Friends." Still, you get Ritchie Havens doing an outstanding job covering George Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun." Maybe Ritchie's cover of "Eleanor Rigby" should have been included as well. I may have also included Phoebe Snow's version of "Don't Let Me Down" as well. Generally speaking, a CD full of great Beatles songs done by some of the best in the business. A real compliment to the Beatles and a treat for us. Buy this CD. You won't be disappointed."
Better than you'd expect

"Unlike so many "tribute" albums done by marginal groups, this one cooks. I'd buy it just for the Ritchie Havens "Here Comes the Sun"."
'Meet The Covers: A Tribute To The Beatles' (Hip-O) Various

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is one tribute CD that until just the other day, I never even knew about. Much less even expect some of the artists that appear on this disc to be covering a Beatles song. Cuts I liked best were Little Richard's "I Saw Her Standing There", Flaimin' Groovies awesome version of "There's A Place", Ritchie Haven's well known "Here Comes The Sun" {saw him play this song on the oldies circuit years ago}, Siouxsie And The Banshee's "Dear Prudence" and the Breakfast Club's contribution of "Drive My Car" {didn't think they could pull it off, at first}. Worth checking out."
