4.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for all stressheads, 30 Jun 2014

Apparently we are all schizophrenic's with the mind of a rational human being and an emotional chimpanzee. Dr Peters offers sound advice on keeping the chimp in check and takes us on a journey of self discovery that helps with confidence, organisation and dealing with stress.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed bag of Sounds Orchestral grooves, 30 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Space Age Soul (Audio CD)
As a bit of an afficianado of the Loungecore/Easy listening genre I had been after this album for quite a while after it dissapeared from the shops around the turn of the century. From the title I'd half expected some spacey electronic early sythesiser grooves or at least a touch of moog here and there. By and large this is a mixed bag of Sounds Orchestral and John Schroeder Orchestra workouts that veer from sublime, sophisticated Jonny Pearson piano and strings numbers to cheesy brassy soul standards. This collection includes Sounds Orchestral producer, John Shroeder"s 'Working in the Soul Mine' album and unfortunately this is the section that features most of the cheese. Standout tracks are the three Sounds Orchestral numbers, 'Soul Coaxing', 'Ain't that peculiar' and 'Soul Trek' although 'Agent Double -O- Soul' is tense and dramatic and 'Sweet Soul Talk' features wonderful rinky dink piano and strings reminiscent of the great Dudley Moore. If you are new to this genre I'd recommend The Easy Project's '20 Loungecore Favourites' or 'House of Loungecore' over this collection or even Sounds Orchestral's 'Sounds Chartbound'. Also checkout 'The Sound Spectrum' or the Larry Page Orchestra's 'Music for Night People'.
