- "I really like the CD. My favourite is 'You can't do that'. Also
'Across the universe'...it has a very Roger Waters
kind of vocal arrangement. All of the album is very interesting...the
songs are very different...finally something
different for the Beatles' cover world." –
latest album, 'To
The ‘Fab Four’ From Liverpool...A Tribute From India' is
a heady concoction of the East
and West, featuring hypnotic strains of the sitar and rhythmic pulsations
of the tabla married to vintage melodies."
By Archana Jayakumar, Asian Age, Sept 5, 2004
- "His artistic
and creative input has made the album an absolutely delight to listen
to. My favourites are 'Norwegian Wood',
'With a little help' and 'The John Lennon tribute', which I think is
very moving and very cleverly put together."
Jeevan Soorya Dhas, Australia
"Even before he became famous in
1974 for playing the role of Jesus in Alyque Padamsee’s
Jesus Christ Superstar,
Madhukar Chandra Dhas (Madooo) used to sing Beatles numbers for a Chennai-based
band named Voodoos."
two worlds, these songs have been deliberately chosen for their `Indianness,'
which has been further
enhanced by Madooo using Indian instruments as a measure of his tribute
to John, Paul, George and Ringo."
