This doesn't have any of Roberta's soul in it. The album is flat to me. Listened to it twice, won't be listening to it again.

"The wait is over!", or so I thought...

But once I played the CD, what did I get...
nice background music... not one song really standing
out.

Sure, Roberta Flack's sophisticated (classy?) approach,
rearrangements and interpretations of these timeless
BEATLES songs makes this CD a must-have for her all-
time fans (like me).

And yes, she adds a nice woman's voice to these songs
and she blends them well with her trademark urban-
borderline-jazzy style.

However it doesn't compare to Sarah Vaughan's 1981
masterpiece "Songs Of The Beatles".

Hopefully the sales of this album will enable the
artist, that Roberta Flack truly is, to work on
a new studio album of original contemporary material.

I will for sure listen to this album a few more times;
after all, her delicate, beautiful and vulnerable voice
does charm and mesmerize after all these years.

Cheers from Hong Kong,

I was impressed with some of the new arrangements of Beatles songs but overall the disc was flat and I would not recommend it to her fans. Even her voice lost the quality of her previous recordings.

From the first beat of this recording, it was not good news - the awlful sound of a drum machine, which is used on all tunes. Makes me cringe. Tells me they were too cheap to hire a live drummer, and that spells unimaginative to me. Yes, she can still sing well, and the arrangements are a little different. Then, after a few tracks in, the dreaded rap vocal effect is brought out, were her voice sounds like a computer talking (i don't know what it's called) but it's terrible to cloud such a great voice with this effect. The producer of this recording should be embarrassed.
It was a good idea, but spoiled. Maybe it will sell to those who don't mind listening to drum machines, synths, and vocal effects. I like real instruments played by pros. Like Ms. Flack's first few albums.

Love her voice from whence I heard it first. This is different, with her own interpretation and nuance of each song. It's as though I was hearing each song for the first time.

Classic Roberta...fresh, authentic, precise, inventive, and memorable. This tribute is true to the music, and to John Lennon. A must have addition to your music library. This is one that offers something new each time you listen.

How can one go wrong with Roberta Flack and The Beatles combination? Great recording, great songs, and now it's my wife's favorite CD for the car!

I love Roberta Flack and have for many, many years. Her tribute to the Beatles is beautiful and I love every song. I hope she does another CD. I will most likely buy it, no matter what it is about.
