Editorial Reviews of "A LITTLE TRIP"
Beatles Unlimited Magazine
"This, by all means, is the real thing. The Beatles have split; long live the Vinyl Kings!" (Mees van Ditzhuyzen)
"A absolutely, postively, freakish channeling of the original spirit of the Fab Four amplified to 11. A masterwork of melodious metamorphosis." (Heidi Drockelman)
BBC Radio Merseyside, Liverpool, UK
"Some of these songs could have been hits for the Beatles" (Spence Leigh, DJ)
Way FM, Austraillia
"The Vinyl Kings sound is erie, reminiscent, thoughtful, fresh and just plain great!" (Mark O'Neill, DJ)
The Great Take-Over Magazine
"Like all great, user friendly albums, A Little Trip falls naturally into your ears with no fuss, no muss, just good old fashioned songcraft performed by musicians who clearly love what they're doing." (Brad Harvey)
"What's great about this album is that with every new listen, you discover some new, tiny little detail, that skipped your attention before, making it a never-ending "little trip" through the Beatles' legacy ... and beyond. Take this "little trip" for a GREAT BIG pleasure. (Goran Obradovic/ POPISM)

In early 2001 the Vinyl Kings decided to try some thing new: To record a CD of their original songs that would draw upon one of their greatest influences, The Beatles.
One could say that their CD "A Little Trip" is a concept record.
But the band would say that it is more of a homage to not only the Beatles, but to a time in musicial history that changed their lives forever.
