Album Review

The goal of Rockin' Horse was to revive the classic Liverpool sound — in that regard, Yes It Is is a phenomenal album and an even better CD, filled up as it is with six bonus tracks. Jimmy Campbell and ex-Merseybeats bassist Billy Kinsley delivered up a record with a good rootsy feel to everything here, and the stuff that fits into a Merseybeat groove is authentic right down to the roughness in the bass work. Some of the rest is closer in spirit to what the Band shot for on Music From Big Pink and their self-titled album. Not all of it works, but what does — which is most of it — is a bracing update of mid-'60s British rock & roll.

Customer Reviews

Welcome back, old friend!

I remember this album being released at the end of 1971 - John Peel played the title track, and no-one had heard anyone sound so much like The Beatles. It was uncanny, and The Fabs had only just split after all. Of course, the rest of the album is The Merseybeats' own sound entirely, and no, it doesn't all work. But enough of it does to make it a really gutsy, typically Liverpool-Irish sound. Stand out tracks for me are Biggest Gossip In Town, Julian the Hooligan, and Stayed Out Late Last Night. Oh, and Yes It Is of course.
