These songs are so good they actually stand on their own.
Katherine McCarthy
There are times on this CD that I have to wonder if I am really listening to the Rutles or the Beatles.

If you like the Beatles and have a sence of humor - you'll love the Rutles!

How did ANYONE every think that Klaatu were the Beatles recording under an assumed name in the late-70s, when it was obvious to anyone with ears that the Beatles were recording under the unlikely name of the Rutles!
Okay, okay, the Rutles are actually ex-Bonzo Dog Band member Neil Innes along with other musicians, but these guys have put together a collection of drop-dead parodies that are done with charm and reverence for the originals. Granted, the film (All You Need Is Cash--BUY THE VIDEO! ) skewered the Beatles legend, but the soundtrack is no joke.
I bought the LP when it was first released in 1978 and listening to the songs was like getting to hear previously unreleased Beatles songs. Now with the CD re-issue, you get an additional 6 tracks for a total of 20 loving send-ups of the Fab Four from their Cavern Days to their final rooftop concert.
In addition to the songs, any true Beatles fan will enjoy the liner notes, photos, interviews and album covers that chronicle the history of the Rutles. HIGHLY Recommended

I wish I could have given this CD 10 stars! If parody is the greatest compliment, then Neil Innes and the boys paid the Beatles the greatest compliment of them all. The music contained on this CD is extremely precise and accurate. There are times on this CD that I have to wonder if I am really listening to the Rutles or the Beatles. I dare anyone to tell me that the vocals on "Cheese and Onions" do not sound exactly like John Lennon. "Another Day" could be mistaken for Paul McCartney, under his "Nomme de merde de taureau," Arsenio Vermounth.
The CD format offers more songs than the LP. One of the extra tracks, "Get Up And Go," sounds very much like the Beatles "Get Back."
Although the film "All You Need Is Cash" was nothing more than the casts of Monty Python meeting Second City TV to poke fun at the Beatles legend; this CD is positively no joke. The music is accurate to the point where you would say things like "That sounds a lot like. . . ", but, by the same token, they are slightly different to add a touch of originality. The lyrics are quite charming and entertaining.
This is a wonderful CD. It is good for die-hard Beatles fans, as well as those who are not. It is definitely worth every penny. And, yes, "the Rutles DID pass the audition."

The legendary Rutles have been anthologized on this collection which presents many of their most well known recordings. The influence of the Rutles can not be understated. The lesser known Beatles were, in fact, a spoof band who spent their entire career poking fun at the Rutles by virtually replicating many of the songs included here. The Rutles' world-wide smash, "Hold My Hand" was answered by the Beatles with "I Wanna Hold Your Hand," "Please Please Me," "She Loves You," and "All My Loving." Such was the influence of the Rutles.
Always on the cutting edge, many of the band's pioneering recordings are included on this CD. In the mid-sixties, guitarist Stig O'Hara branched out into world music with the stunning, sitar powered "Nevertheless." This inspired Beatle George Harrison to compose the vastly inferior "Within You and Without You." Don't be fooled by cheap substitutes, the Rutles were there first. (It is worth noting that O'Hara continues his association with sitar master Rabbi Shan Carr to this day). Ron Nasty, the smart Rutle, proves his intelligence on the brilliant "Piggy in the Middle" with its memorable chorus of "Do a poo-poo." John Lennon's "goo-goo-ga-jub" shows none of this deep insight. Dirk McQuikly, possessed of wonderful pop smarts, shows them off in fine form on "Another Day" ("Nature's calling, and I must go there") And the ever fun-loving drummer Barry Wom provides lighthearted silliness on "Living in Hope," which displays his hauntingly beautiful, nasal-retentive vocals.
There is plenty more to be found on this exceptional recording. "Love Life" was the anthem of that wacky summer of '67.

Being a low-key closet Beatles fan, I was fairly skeptical when I heard about the Eric Idle/SNL produced mockumentary "All You Need Is Cash". After a few minutes of watching, however I was completely won over by the Pre-Fab Four.
What did it for me was this music, written and performed by Neil Innes et al. The songs are spot on as far as capturing the Beatles sound throughout their career--other reviewers have said this but in many cases, you'd swear you were listening to the Fab Four--"Love Life", "Cheese and Onions" and "Piggy In The Middle" are out of control. Moreover, the songs stand as just darn clever, well-crafted pop songs on their own. So much so, that a few years ago, a bunch of NY bands got together and recorded a tribute album called, "Rutles Highway Revisited".
By the way, back in '97, I attended an annual Tri-State Beatles convention (no snickering please). Neil Innes showed up as a guest speaker and later on that evening performed for the crowd. Although he did join in on a few Beatles songs, the crowd reaaally went nuts when Neil started performing his Rutles music. I was floored by how many of these fanatical Beatles fans were singing the Rutles songs by heart! It was a really fun and memorable evening.
Anyway, buy this CD if you enjoyed "All You Need Is Cash", like the Beatles, or just want to appreciate some fun, clever Beatles influenced music--you won't go wrong.
