Great Survey of Beatles Influences and Inspirations,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beatles Beginnings Vol 6 (Beatlemania) (Audio CD)
The "Beginnings" series strikes again with another spectacular collection of original recordings that in this case inspired or influenced The Beatles. This is the sixth of an extremely ambitious 6-CD series on The Beatles' influences and inspirations. As with others in the series (2 Rolling Stones collections and one each on The Who and The Kinks), the accompanying booklet has extremely thorough and welcome annotation. I applaud whomever performed the extensive research that resulted in these fascinating choices. I hope they're planning discs on The Yardbirds, The Animals and Jimi Hendrix as well.
Their other series, "How Britain Got the Blues", is every bit as good (if not better, as each set of this 4-part series is a 2-CD extravaganza of great cuts). Bravo to History of RnB Records for these releases and the outstanding music scholarship that accompanies them.
