Proving that these songs stand out for what they are, not just because of who sings and plays, George Martin shows that he can also find people who can give those songs the justice they deserve. Great songs that he helped the beatles breathe life into are now brought to life by other inpired choices. And I use the word "inspired" with great reverence, because this is an inspired album, crafted by a true genius. He has taken the exceptional work of Lennon and McCartney and transposed them in a way that makes them so different, yet without losing their original polish and shine. Some are better than others of course, but Jim Carrey on 'I am the walrus' is only trumped by my favourite, the singular voice of Sean Connery on 'In my life'.

Good collection of alternative versions of classic Beatle tunes. Put together by the man who had a huge influence in the early days, of creating the Beatle sound. He has every right to this self indulgence! The highlights for me are the Jim Carrey version of Walrus. A crazy song sung in a manic style by a crazy man! The Phil Collins version of Golden Slumbers/Carry that Weight/The End. Goldie Hawn's smoky jazz version of Hard Days Night. Jeff Beck's electric guitar version of A Day in the Life. John William's acoustic guitar version of Here Comes The Sun. Even Celine Dion doing a sweet version of Here There and Everywhere works well. A good album of great interest to Beatle fans like me.

Absolutely fabulous, innovative, and a superb example of a virtuoso producer taking hold of some of the most popular music in the past century - FOR HIS OWN RIGHT. Listening to this, and considering the familiarity most have with Beatles material, I'm left with a few strong impressions. The mastery of Martin's guidance and production skills as both he and the Beatles evolved from the first album to the last. It was very much a symbiotic relationship as each album was released ( or so it would seem as this CD is listened to ), and what Martin has done with the Beatles material in his own right is OUTSTANDING. It's virtuoso stuff. As a secondary note, the label the Beatles were released on in the UK, Parlaphone, was originally intended by EMI to be a light entertainment label; comedy and the like. I think Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan had released stuff on the label, although I have no idea if they had any relation with George Martin. Peter Sellers and the Beatles ( John Lennon specifically ) used to hang out together, and if you search You Tube you'll find some fascinating experimental comedy movies with both Lennon and Sellers, which I believe was directed by Richard Lester. But I digress: this CD is excellent. I could not say enough good about it, and I must say that my Suirround Stereo on my movie tuner makes the music all the more spectacular. Perfect Stereo music enveloping you with excellence.

The brains behind the Beetles. So much of their later work shows the inspiration that working with George Martin had on them. The people willing to contribute is a testimony to the high regard he has in the industry and the arrangements are absolutely wonderful. It ends too soon.

For me George Martin has always been the "Fifth Beatle." Certainly from aperformance standpoint that honor will go to Billy Preston, but Martin wasthe producer of most of the Beatles' recordings from 1962 to 1969 and thatcounts for a lot in my book. Martin's willingness to provide a nurturingenvironment and to do strange new things in the recording studio gave JohnLennon and Paul McCartney license to do strange things like guitarfeedback at the start of "I Feel Fine" and the string quartet for"Yesterday." When Martin decided to official retire in 1998 he decided toproduce on last album, picking a selection of Beatles tunes that he hadoriginally produced and coming up with some often offbeat performances todo singing (although not all of the guest artists are singers). Theresult, as you might expect, is a mixed bag. According to your tastes youwill almost most assuredly find a couple of duds here, but you should alsofind a couple of efforts that you will appreciate.
Martin makes it clear that are no limits with the opening track, whereRobin Williams sings "Come Together" while Bobby McFerrin provides themouth music. When you start off with that track then Jim Carrey doing "Iam the Walrus" does not seem that strange. But by the time Billy Connollyfinishes the first verse of "For the Benefit of Mr. Kite" you get thepoint and there is really no reason not to skip ahead to the next track.

George Martin takes a sentimental trip back to The Beatles, accompanied by a wide variety of friends from all walks of entertainment. From the mellow tones of Goldie Hawn to the soaring voice of Celine Dion, the classical guitar of John Williams to rock legend Jeff Beck, from Robin Williams to Billy Connolly to Jim Carey to Sean Connery (and more besides!). Having purchased this album on it's release,it became lost during moves around the country. When I discovered it on Amazon for an unbelievable price, I just HAD to buy it again. Over the years, it has lost none of it's appeal. Done with a sense of fun, but always with a nod of respect to the "FAB FOUR", "In My Life" is a must for all beatles fans.......as long as you have a sense of fun!!!
