"Westbrook's faithful and wonderfully good humored rendition of The Beatles' 1969 album 'ABBEY ROAD' underscores its music-hall whimsy and ravishing melodies. The Beatles purists I have played it for are as delighted as I am." Gary Giddins - Village Voice. "John Lennon, the most progressive of The Beatles, would have been delighted … a real adventure on the borderlines between pop and jazz." Manfred Schmidt - Stereo Magazine, Germany 'CD of the Month'. A quirky marriage of rock, vaudeville and jazz improvisation… Westbrook finds unexpected depths in over familiar songs.’ Clive Davis - The Times.
This six disc anthology features the very best of The Beatles in the studio, on the road and on the airwaves from 1962-'66. It is the perfect illustration of how The Beatles evolved as writers and performers and created a musical phenomenon which has never been equalled.
The much delayed DVD of the Tony Ashton show at Abbey Road in 2000 is finally out on DVD. It has twenty two tracks, including all the PAL and Company Of Snakes performance, as well the three track Tony Ashton set, and Pete York / Eddie Hardin's set. A few of the opening acts are missing, but all the important stuff is here. It's been done as a combined DVD / CD package, so you also get the same set on a 2xCD, all in a thick digipak.
