Easy Star All-Stars: Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band. Released 13.04.09.

If you're reading this then you are probably either A) a fan of Easy Stars' previous offerings, or B) a Beatles fan. In both cases I suspect this latest release from Easy Star Records will leave you with a rather large smile on your face.

The Easy Star All-Stars have an impressive history of taking classic records and re-recording them in a reggae-style (not simply that, but in every style of reggae from ska through to dancehall), and this project is no exception. Each and every track from the Beatles' classic "Sgt.Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" has been painstakingly deconstructed and then reconstructed before being put back together in the right order from the opening orchestral warm-up to the mock run-out groove at the conclusion of a very interesting ride. And it is a ride.

Along for that ride are, as with the first two re-imaginings, many of the reggae world's finest vocalists and musicians. On "Easy Star's..." (which annoyingly, but expectedly doesn't work as well as an abbreviated title as "Sgt. Pepper's..." does) a veritable who's-who of reggae including Luciano, Daddy U-Roy, Max Romeo, Michael Rose and Frankie Paul lend their considerable and historical vocal skills while Steel Pulse and The Mighty Diamonds appear to lend their weight to the project. A collection of such greats should make this an album worthy of your hard-earned money before you even consider the challenge they have all undertaken.

It was obvious on that first run-through that some of the tracks were simply amazing. "With a Little Help From My Friends" with Luciano's to-be-expected amazing voice was stunning. Immediately after, Frankie Paul's "Lucy In the Sky...

This is just a breath of fresh air - a joyous celebration of a classic English album. I loved Easy All Stars previous albums, Dark Side and Ok Computer, and I instantly feel the same way with Lonely Heart's Dub Band. This is for everyone, not just reggae fans or midnight tokers. I'm neither, myself. It's a a great uplifting album and I only wish Lennon was alive to hear it. He'd love Lucy in the Sky, for sure. No more blather...just buy it! :)

Overall it's a great album but it's a bit more of a grower than the other two. What really works for me is She's Leaving Home what a sweet voice.

Only thing that dissapoints me is it doesn't have the dub versions at the end like the other two albums. Though there is a link where you can download them from their site but the bit rate issn't great for those. I would much rather have them on the album itself.

As for what ever they do next...well I understand that the idea is to "re-do" concept albums. How about Bowie's Ziggy Stardub and the Dreads from Mars?

it's the brass that makes the beatle -reggae thing work so well.
this is a beautiful record-barkingly psychedelic.

I felt a bit let down by this, the first two are genuinely great but this feels like they're trying far too hard.

Also, the word "dub" is misleading, as all the songs have vocals all the way through. Far more than the previous two LPs.

Maybe this project's jumped the shark already?

To my surprise this is a very good album.
The songs are of course familiair, but Easy Star has done a good job to give the Beatle songs a reggae sound.
If you like the Beatles and/or reggae music, you should buy this CD instantly !

It's a lush ablum, from the off setting a great tone to the backdrop of this great beatles album. It stays respectful to the sound of the original tunes but splashes so much sunshine, dub-base and riddim into them that all the tracks are stand-out good on their own.
