5.0 out of 5 stars Cassette Demagnetiser - a trusty friend, 7 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Cassette Demagnetiser is a very handy product especially if like me you've still play Cassettes. The Demagnetiser gets rid off the negative ions that build up around the tape head, and tape path. This is a very useful product, and handy to know you have it if the need arises to Demagnetise your cassette player. A very cheap product - good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wonderful Sam Carter - his music just sparkles, 29 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The No Testament (Audio CD)
When I was told by a friend that Sam Carter was taught to play guitar by the Wonderful National Tressure that is Martin Simpson I was sold. Upon first listening to Sam Carter (having never previously heard him before), i was delighted. Delighted by Sam Carter's voice,and equally delighted by Sam Carter's guitar prowess. Listening to Sam Carter made me realise that British Folk Music is alive and well in the hands of the young, young people keen enough to listen to their parents old music, and keen enough to preserve our cultural British heritage. Sam Carter's new album The No Testament is terrific and worth double the price - this album repays in a simple homage to our British Folk Music. if you do care about our precious British Folk Music you'll buy this album to know that tomorrow is a bright day in our wonderful British Folk Music. This album is brilliant so buy it now...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sheer High Quality of Dar Williams - Live in Concert, 29 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Out There Live (Audio CD)
I have been interested in the music of Dar Williams ever since the first release of her double album "Honesty Room/Mortal City" back in the 1980s. Dar Williams to me has the undefinable child-like sounding voice I really like, because to me it suggests some kind of innocence and naivette.This Live in Concert disc is a sheer delight - singing and guitar playing exquisite and memorable. Dar Williams also has a Live in Concert DVD out now - buy them both you won't be dissapointed. Dar Williams is a great artist, a stylist, perfection in music. Buy this and the Live in Concert DVD NOW you won't be sorry - if you love good music with moving honesty. Dar Williams is a truly great artist, and someone to have in your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ever Faithfull Jimmy Lafave, Austin Texas's finest..., 29 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I choose this Jimmy Lafave album because i had the pleasure of witnessing Jimmy Lafave live at La Zona rosa in Austin Texas USA around 20 years ago - what struck me then was his sheer exhubrance and professional musicianship. But of course time moves on and unfortunately music gets forgotten. Upon browsing on Amazon I noticed this latest Jimmy Lafave offering - keen to renew my aquaintence with Jimmy Lafave I bought the album. This album of songs is really great, perfect singing, perfect guitar playing, and perfect everything. Jimmy Lafave is a marvel, a hidden gem - someone to check out. If you've never heard of Jimmy Lafave well with this album you are in for a treat. this is a worth while album to buy - never failing to please, and never failing to excite - buy this album - worth twice the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Finest New Country Music Artist Since Dwight Yoakham, 29 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Zoe Muth's latest album hasn't dissapopinted me one bit, actually it is as good as her first album. Zoe Muth writes "killer" country songs, and what is so remarkable she's only a young woman - around 23. Zoe Muth has that synicism and "world-wearyness" so reminisicent of the classic Country singers of yesteryear. Zoe Muth has a breath of grandour in her music - which doesn't fail to "rip me" up with her feelings inherent in her music - Zoe Muth is "the high lonesome sound" personified.
I cannot speak too highly of Zoe Muth, and I urge anyone who hasn't yet heard her music to dip in, you won't be sorry.
Zoe Muth is great music brought back from the 1950s and 1960s for today, about today. I thought there could never be a better Country Music artist than Dwight Yoakham to emerge, but with Zoe Muth you have the equal of Dwight Yoakham. If you love Dwight Yoakham, then you will surely love Zoe Muth. Buy this album NOW it's terrific, and worth every penny - 19 out of 10

5.0 out of 5 stars The Excellence of Miss Barbara Dane - Singer Extraordinaire, 4 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anth Of Amer. Folk S (Audio CD)
Barbara Dane was a contemporary of Bob Dylan, already singing in and around Greenwich Village when Dylan arrived on this scene. In fact Bob Dylan spoke of Barbara Dane as being an influence on himself. This album of Barbara Dane shows her to be an excellent interpreter of traditional folk songs, so much so she makes these songs come alive and grab the listeners attention. Barbara Dane is a clear voiced wonder with near perfect enunciation of the vocal lines - making the songs interesting and captivating. Anthem of American Folk is an album well worth buying just to listen to the voice of Barbara Dane alone, and to positively enjoy these great songs. This is quite a cheap album to buy, so well worth the investement to add it to you collection of musics - buy iy todasy it's terrific - worth every penny for delicious music of an American Legend - Barbara Dane.
