John is spinning in his grave
Why must they mess with perfection. These renditions are total crap!!!
A must buy for Lennon fans!
John Lennon's music takes on fresh interpretations by an impressive collection of legendary and contemporary artists at NYC's Beacon Theatre, a few blocks away from The Dakota, where John made his home. These musicians clearly enjoyed performing John's songs and went to great lengths to bring there own style to the music. Each time I play this album, I hear a musical nuance that I did not notice before. Stand out performances by Patti Smith, Jackson Browne, Alejandro Escovedo, Shelby Lynne, Martin Sexton, Taj Mahal, Bettye Lavette, Aimee Mann and Keb' Mo'. If you like Lennon's music, then buy this album! Proceeds help aid earthquake relief through the Japanese Red Cross.
Understand what is special about this!
Fresh takes on classic music by serious respect-worthy musicians who have brains of their own, honoring a master who's gone. What better way to reflect the glorious fact that music is a living, changing thing....
