[Edit]

Forty-three years after the release of the Beatles’ first album for Capitol Records in the U.S., New Jersey’s Smithereens (“Blood and Roses,” “Behind the Wall of Sleep”) have re-recorded the album track by track, faithfully rendering the Merseybeat classic — clearly a novelty for the Beatles-obsessed. The original Beatles album was an energetic tour de force that culled tracks from their second British release With the Beatles alongside the “I Want to Hold Your Hand” / “This Boy” single and  “I Saw Her Standing There” from their first album, Please Please Me — all in “re-processed stereo,” adding an extra layer of reverb and extreme instrument / vocal separation. The Smithereens opt for modern production, no hard pans. The three remaining Smithereens don’t try to imitate Lennon or McCartney, but they remain close to the original arrangements. There are no stunning reinterpretations. But what the album obviously lacks in ingenuity is made up for in its caring spirit and the simple fact that these are some of the strongest tunes in the Lennon-McCartney songbook.
