Product Description & Reviews

1965's "The Baroque Beatles Book" was one of the most successful early Elektra albums and one we've been trying to license for years. Josh Rifkin was a mere 21 years old and fresh from the Even Dozen Jug Band when Elektra founder Jac Holzman approached him for the job of adapting Beatles songs into classical forms, and he rose to the occasion magnificently, enlisting the aid of New York's finest freelance classical musicians to craft these whimsical, inventive interpretations. Rifkin was also to put the lessons learned on this recording to good use on his orchestral arrangements for Judy Collins' "In My Life" and "Wildflowers" albums; this is a key album in the Elektra catalog. A Collectors' Choice Music exclusive, featuring quotes in the notes from maestro Rifkin himself!
