5.0 out of 5 stars Blues in London, 27 Feb 2009
This is a great companion to memory - looking through the gig details I remember some of the occasions. I hope that the book will stimulate more memories so that an even more complete picture of the time can be created and include such detail as the stuffed bear at Cream club performances, the uncertain appearance of EC at Mayall gigs and the "Carrot in the flies" in Fleetwood Mac sessions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Find Genealogy and Historical resource, 16 Nov 2008
This hard to find book is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the histories of families that originate in Filey, a small fishing town and seaside resort on the East Coast of Yorkshire. It's especially interesting for those descendants of the Jenkinson family and contains a well researched family tree. Although self-published in 1985 by the authors it is clearly the result of painstaking research and includes some fascinating anecdotes from family members as well as some photos. The book deserves to be reprinted using up to date techniques and perhaps expanded to bring it up to date.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great, but short-lived lineup, 11 Jun 2008
This review is from: Chapter III Vol 1 (Audio CD)
I saw this band play at the Royal Festival Hall in London. They were the "support" for Roland Kirk, who played the first half - before going on to another gig (Ronnie Scotts?) - the improvisional talents of the band (especially Bernie Livings) were the highlight - I seem to remember a trumpeter in the lineup that was also very impressive. The band played encore after encore and the audience left close to midnight, a rare event for the RFH.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed bunch but good stuff, 2 Sep 2003
This album covers a wide range of music and eras. Unfortunately no information is provided on the recordings so, although clearly "world" we have to search on the web etc to find out anything about the artists and where in the world they come from. It's a great mix, though. Some of the music is clearly from another time - ?40s - whilst other (Jammy) is very up to date drum and bass reggae.The recording quality is mixed but, in the end doesn't deter from the overall quality of the music.
