One of the coolest albums ever from the mighty Keith Mansfield – an arranger best known for his sound library work, but one who steps out beautifully here on a rare commercial album for CBS! The set's way more than just the batch of late 60s pop tunes that you might guess from the Beatles' reference in the title – as Keith really transforms most tunes with his hip approach to the grooves, and also manages to throw in a few gems of his own composition as well! The bottom of most numbers is plenty darn jaunty – funky at the best moments – and instrumentation includes some great Hammond and hard-edge piano lines that really send the tunes home. Titles include the killer "Soul Thing", used by Quentin Tarantino in Kill Bill, and "Boogaloo" – both originals by Mansfield – plus the tracks "Everlasting Love", "Whiter Shade Of Pale", "Moanin", "Walk On By", "Lovin Things", "Reach Out", "Rainbow Valley", and "Take Five". CD also features 8 bonus tracks that Keith arranged for Maynard Ferguson, Salena Jones, Love Affair and Alan Haven – including "Love For Sale", "Am I The Same Girl", "The Serpent", and "Soul Confusion".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
