AllMusic Review by

The Beatles songbook is full of tunes that have such perfect melodic and rhythmic foundations that it is possible to translate them into almost any foreseeable musical genre, from reggae and dub to bluegrass and classical, and have them work successfully on one level or another. The dozen tracks presented here cast Beatles songs (and one post-Beatles Paul McCartney song) into a salsa vibe, and while nothing particularly startling emerges, it's nice to hear tracks like "Get Back" (done by Harvey Averne) and "Me and My Monkey" (done by Orquesta Harlow) given new spins in a dancefloor context.
