"Love Me Do: 50 Songs That Shaped The Beatles ( 2 CD Box))"

Coinciding with half a century since the Beatles made their recorded debut, Fantastic Voyage presents Love Me Do: 50 Songs That Shaped The Beatles, showing the wildly-diverse range of influences which helped shape the musical mindsets of the individuals who turned into the Beatles, the biggest group the world has ever seen.

Apart from the expected rock ‘n’ roll and blues which provided life-changing epithanies for any self-respecting artists coming up in the 1950s, the set crucially examines the less likely outings which would manifest in Beatles songs after they had climbed to fame with their signature beat and ballad sound; music hall, comedy, jazz, girl groups, country, musicals and novelty songs. Compiled and annotated by respected Beatlesologist Spencer Leigh [author of Tomorrow never Knows], the set also underlines the Fabs’ grounding in the classic Tin Pan Alley song writing craft.

It would be easy to have filled the set with Elvis, Gene Vincent, Chuck Berry and Carl Perkins, who are here but with one [less obvious] track apiece. Little Richard’s ‘Long Tall Sally’ is essential for the McCartney ‘Oooh’, but it’s the lesser-known rockers such as Vince Taylor who start to make the set a fascinating well-spring of insights into the Beatles’ early motivations and inspirations, which obviously includes the Quarrymen with Lonnie Donegan‘s ’Rock Island Line’. There’s even the Merseysippi Jazz Band, who opened the Cavern in 1957. The influence of McCartney’s bandleader dad Jim is evident in names such as Fats Waller and Fats Domino, and other artists whose songs he’s covered, including Fred Astaire and Peggy Lee, while Ringo’s early immersion in orchestral faves such as Doris Day’s ‘Sentimental Journey’ showed up later in his solo career. The presence of Lita Roxa, Liverpool’s first singing star, is another nice touch, as is Lennon and Harrison’s much-loved George Formby and Peter Sellers, another childhood hero who had been produced by George Martin.

Other names to be found on this multi-faceted collection include the Vipers Skiffle Group, Eddie Cochran, Dickie Bishop & His Sidekicks, the Crickets, Dell-Vikings, Bill Justis, the Quintet Of the Hot Club of France, Slim Whitman, Joe Brown, Tony Sheridan, Barrett Strong, Billy Fury, Roy Young, Drifters, Anthony Newley, the Marvelettes, Shirelles, Cozy Cole, Johnny Kidd & the Pirates, the Crew-Cuts, Nat ‘King’ Cole, Dave Brubeck, Bruce Channel and the Everly Brothers.

As both insight into the Beatles’ influences and rollicking trip back into a lost world of musical fun, frolics and innocence, Love Me Do is a fine way to celebrate the Fab Four’s 50th in slightly more unusual fashion.
