Editorial Reviews

2009 album from the musician, artist producer and famous sideman, best known for his work with The Beatles (he designed the Revolver album cover) and their solo recordings. Voormann played bass on many of the old solo Beatles albums. He was on Ringo's first solo album Sentimental Journey, he played on John Lennon's Imagine and on George Harrison's All Things Must Pass.

4.0 out of 5 stars A basslegend looks back September 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The discreet yet always inventive and funky bassplaying by Klaus Voormann has graced so many classic rock albums, most notably George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass" and "Living In The Material World". As well as the two first solo-albums from John Lennon, especially on the "Plastic Ono band" where Voormann's rock solid bass fits perfectly with Ringo Starr's primordial drums.

Here is a relaxed and laid back effort to commemorate his many years in the music business bringing together old friends like Dr. John, bonnie Bramlett,Paul McCartney, Ringo, Joe Walsh in a set of mostly rock 'standards'. Good fun very much in the vein of Ringo & His All Star Band.

The artistic highlights no doubt Yusef Islam (Cat Stevens)'s heartfelt renditions of Harrison's "All Things Must Pass" and "The Day The World Gets 'Round"where we enter quite another dimension.

Part of the proceedings go to charity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally October 2, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Klaus Voorman played bass on so many brilliant, essential albums. All Things Must Pass, Living In The Material World, The Concert for Bangla Desh, Ringo, Plastic Ono Band, Imagine. Lots of others. His playing with Manfred Mann. I have been waiting for DECADES to hear what he would do with his own album. He has enlisted help from his friends from all these great albums, and the result is a fun, great sounding journey through the past. Thank you, Klaus (and friends) for an album that like "Ringo" back in 1973 made me smile from beginning to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sideman March 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A Sideman's Journey by Voormann & Friends is to me a great way of paying tribute to one of the best sidemen of all-time. For a Beatles' completist, it is a must have cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars With A Little Help From His Friends February 21, 2013
By Marty R
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always like Klaus Voorman's contributions to the music scene. One would be amazed at how many different artists he has performed with over the decades. This release is very nice and covers a lot of musical ground. There is nothing really earth shattering here but it's a very nice mix of styles and songs featuring a number of his musical friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Job from the sideman July 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this because of the obvious connection to the Beatles and the fact Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr perform on one of the songs. The rest of the numbers are good and enjoyable with nice performances.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Collection To Cap An Interesting Career March 2, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"A Sideman's Journey" is a nice record. I guess it was about time for Klaus to put together an album. It is certainly enjoyable as a straight ahead pop fest with some good players doing some good songs. It doesn't break any new ground, and I'm sure it wasn't meant to. It reflects Klaus's journeyman work accompanying so many people. He plays bass on most of the songs, and the album includes one song he wrote with Doris Troy ("So Far" sung by Bonnie Bramlett, although Klaus doesn't play on it for some reason). There are 11 songs. Bonnie Bramlett, Yusef Islam, and Don Preston have two each. I would have limited them to one, and got other folks for three other numbers. The cover art is great, as you would expect from Klaus. I get the feeling this was a project Klaus (or someone close to him) wanted him to do now that he is in his 70s -- a bit of a vanity project, not that there is anything wrong with that. I don't expect him to rush right out and record volume 2. Highlights: Dr. John and the Manfreds.
