iTunes Review

The gifted soul legend Roberta Flack takes a gusty, rewarding approach to this set of Beatles classics. Knowing how universally etched into the public consciousness these songs are, Flack finds new angles to explore. "In My Life" emphasizes a lithe, playful melody. "Hey Jude" is mercifully kept compact. It shouldn't be a surprise that it's largely Paul McCartney's richly melodic works that are brought to the front. George Harrison's "Isn't It a Pity" from his solo career also fits neatly, with his evergreen "Here Comes the Sun" being the album's bonus track. "We Can Work It Out" sports a hip-hop groove that brightens Flack's vocal. Though Flack takes on such chestnuts as "Let It Be" and "The Long and Winding Road," she imbues them with a sassy optimism that makes their well-known melodies sound shockingly fresh. To hear the brash mop-top power pop of "I Should Have Known Better" turned into a dance number may divide the purists from the thrillseekers, but for an artist it's invaluable to take these chances. 

Customer Reviews

Follow "your" own beat & "your" own heart!

First off, I am a huge fan of Roberta Flack, and a hugh fan of the Beatles as well-- both different
styles but both great, nonetheless. I was thrilled to see some new stuff by Roberta and surprised
when I read some of the negative reviews. I decided to listen objectively to the entire "preview" with
an open heart and an open mind. Folks, I understand that some "Beatles Purist" will automatically "reject"
anything outside of the artists' original composition/arrangements-- but please leave "creative interpretation"
for folks like me who like to think out side the box. As a vocalist, I found the arrangements and vocal stylings fresh,
and amazing-- definitely worthy of my purchasing this entire cd-- Folks, listen to your own beat and your own heart.
Don't limit great music! Personally, I think the Fab 4 would really appreciate it! I know it is a matter of taste but...my
taste says it's simply yummy!!!

Superb

Roberta has not lost her touch. She sounds incredibly the same as she did in all of her classics. This is a must have for Roberta fans and new ones.
