Cliff Notes Part 2

(scott) As noted before, Cliff's latest great reggae share is a big one, so I've split it in three parts (with
his blessing, of course)....this being the second.....I think I might have posted some of these before, but I think I might have gotten confused as to how many discs comprise the set, or something.....I know Cliff knows his shit, so I will vouch for completeness this time.

(cliff) I seem to recall that sometime last year our main man Scott posted a few discs of reggae cover versions of Beatles songs.  Since that time I'ave always meant to post this 3 disc Trojan Box Set but for some reason or another, probably old age forgetfulness, I have never got round to it.  Reggae acts have never been slow to turn out reggae versions of songs from other genres and this shows that the Beatles sounds were no different for them. Alongside the typical Beatles songs are a number of John Paul and George's solo efforts although Ringo appears to be ignored.  As with cover versions sometimes they can be a bit hit and miss but on the whole this set is generally enjoyable, worth a listen anyway if only for curio value.
