All-Reviews.com Music Review: The Blues White Album

Artist: Various
Genre: Blues
Release Date: January 2002


Review by Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck
2 stars out of 4

Telarc really needs to get back to what they do best, da blues. Tributes are great when you stay within your own realm, but Beatles music blues style? Sorry, it just doesn't work. Besides the fact that this tribute thing has gotten out of hand, this is something that is way out of their league, and it just makes it all that much more painful. This is worst than the Nick Lowe tribute that they put out earlier. If this great label insists on taking a chance and doing out of character tribute albums, why not do it all instrumental? Kind of like the "Pickin' On" series that the bluegrass folks do.

Besides some good guitar licks here and there, a decent version of "Blackbird" by Colin Linden, and an all instrumental version of "Dear Prudence" by Charlie Musselwhite and Linden, this is one that I would prefer to forget.
