5.0 out of 5 stars A world with Randy Newman in it is a better place., 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
Each album packs more into its half-hour than some artists do in a lifetime. A world with Randy Newman in it is a better place.

Ray Davies is a true original. Honest, direct in his songs and in his life. Still doing it. The man is a legend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tune in..., 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A beautiful snapshot of a beautiful time pre-branding and marketing, when interacting with social media just meant reading the Iinternational Times. No Simon and Garfunkel, Grateful Dead or Buffalo Springfield, hence 4 stars not 5.

4.0 out of 5 stars really rather lovely, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Deceptively simple. I don't know why I haven't heard it before. Probably put off by the packaging back in the day.
Such a pity it isn't in mono, as it takes a while to get used to Don singing in the front room and the band playing in the kitchen. Otherwise i'd be tempted to give it foive.

5.0 out of 5 stars slightly expensive way of getting it in mono, but..., 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Laavely. Only one little quibble. The last track on the 'unreleased' extras CD calls itself an alternate take, 'phased mix' of the title track. I don't think so. I think it's just the title track played backwards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Goes up to 11, 28 Mar. 2013

Can't think why it has taken me 42 years to listen to this. The orchestra and chorus add hugely to Salty Dog, Whaling Stories and the extended In Held Twas I. Drummer BJ Wilson the undoubted star.

5.0 out of 5 stars No words needed, 28 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Chas Chandler was absolutely right. This album is sensational in mono. It smacks you right between the eyes.
(The back of the cover lacks the original biographical material on the band, if that matters to anyone)
The music. Beyond comment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does this need a review?, 28 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mono. Of course. it punches straight down the middle and yet the phasing still sounds like it's everywhere.
You might deduct a quarter of a star for the lack of pullout purple and orange lyric sheet. The cover says with all orginal artwork but there is no pullout. The lyrics are inside the gatefold instead of the picture of Jimi 'with the broken face'.
Typical post-modern review, to give the packaging more coverage than the contents. But surely the music needs no comment from me.
