Returning to the form of Easy Star's breakout LP "Dub Side Of The Moon"--covering an entire classic rock LP track by track, remaining faithful enough to the original while breathing serious new life into it.

These tracks have been covered before over the years in homage to the Beatles--and respect for the band's compositions here is absolute--but this is the only set that also honors the spirit of fun, experimentation, and adventure that so endeared listeners to the original. The large all star cast assembled, which includes some of the real graybacks of reggae music, seems genuinely energized by the affair. You may find it hard not to be as well.
