5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great voices 11 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Colin Blunstone has one of the great voices of all time, and any connoisseur of 70s music should have at least one compilation of his work. 'I Don't Believe In Miracles' is sublime (who can resist that breathtaking high note shortly before the fade-out?); 'Say You Don't Mind' and 'Caroline Goodbye' are hardly less exquisite. Also 'Wonderful' lives up to its title, not only for Colin's performance but also for the atmospheric synth-work of its composer Rod Argent, his old friend from the Zombies days.

This selection covers only a very small part of Colin Blunstone's long career, namely his 3 albums on Epic Records during the years 1971 to 1973. Of these 'One Year' has a unique style, with almost all the songs having a gentle chamber music accompaniment, comprising a small string section, as well as harp, harmonium, brass band and classical guitar. On only three tracks (all of which appear in this collection) is there a conventional rock band rhythm section, here provided by the band Argent. Although 7 out of the 10 songs from 'One year' are included in the collection, there are other better tracks which could have been substituted for some of them, notably 'Her song' and 'Smoky day'.
The second album represented is 'Ennismore', a more conventional 'light rock' album, from which 3 notable songs and one less memorable one appear. Given the length of the 'Some years' CD, it would have been possible to include up to five additional tracks, and in that case the omission of the rest of the 'Quartet' medley from 'Ennismore', and 'Time's running out' is most regrettable.
The last of the three albums represented here, 'Journey', has sometimes been criticized as a patchy, disappointing record, but even so it contained some good songs. The opening medley commencing with 'Wonderful' is superb, in the space of 10 minutes ranging from a driving Argent backing to unaccompanied choral voices and solo classical guitar. This is probably the most memorable of the pieces in the compilation. However, it is then followed by three lacklustre songs from the US edition of 'Journey', whilst much better tracks such as 'Beware' and 'Shadow of a doubt' are omitted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not so old and wise 3 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For anyone just a bit too young to have appreciated Blunstone the first time round (like me), this is a fab introduction. The songs are beautiful, wise, clever and mainly full-on romantic in the best way. And of course, there isn't a voice like his anywhere in music; I can't think of anyone else able to express emotion in such an amazing way. Definitely an album to fall in love with, fairly obsessively.

4.0 out of 5 stars my very own thoughts from abroad 5 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
GM's Motorama: The Glamourous Show Cars of a Cultural Phenomenon The book was delivered within the specified time frame,carefully wrapped to prevent any damage and upon opening was found to be in excellent condition.
The book itself was exactly what I was looking for,well written , very informative and lots of coloured photos of the glamorous dream cars from GM during the fifties.
An excellent service provided by Amazon.
