5.0 out of 5 stars The 1954-1961 Albums - 15 complete albums - Frank Sinatra, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a wonderful buy the 1954-1961-15 complete albums by Frank Sinatra is. In my opinion these Capitol releases are the very best of Frank Sinatra's whole career. It is very difficult to say which is the most startling aspect of this music, the vocalising, the musicians, or the arrangements - whatever makes the magic of this sublime music makes it so well. I think Frank Sinatra is in my opinion the greatest male Jazz Singer of the 20th century, because how he was able to utilise his voice like a musical instrument (rather like Billie Holliday), which makes Frank Sinatra completely stunning, flawless, and magnificent. These 15 complete albums by Frank Sinatra are well worth buying - the sound is rich and superb, a worthwhile investment if you love good Jazz singing, which I do. 20 out of 10 in my opinion.

This is to me one of the classics of avante garde cinema. All the acting performances are wonderful, superb, and sublime. And in particular you have the late great Dennis Hopper giving yet another stirling performance. I simply adore this film and you should too, so buy it you won't regret it.

This is a superb film portraying the dull lives lived by many in the 1970s, and whom found release in Northern Soul. If you know nothing about Northern Soul, and are curious then this might be a good place to start, you can see the wonderful dancing and hear the sublime music of the Northern Soul genre.Relive the times past, and simplybenjoy a great film, well acted, well scripted - very enjoyable. Thoroughly recommended.

I am a confirmed lover of the products of Asus, and this Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 Motherboard (Socket AM3+), is no exception. very easy to install in an ATX case. It simply does what it says, boots up everytime, very reliable, and I believe good value-for-money. Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 Motherboard combined with AMD CPUs is an excellent choice, and in my opinion simply the best, and a worthwhile investment in a Desk Top PC.

This is undoubtedly the very best biography I have ever read of Dashiell Hammett. William F. Nolan writing is so clear, so lucid, and spares no punches about the life of Dashiell Hammett. If you want to know something more about Dashiell Hammett, or indeed you know nothing about Dashiell Hammett - this is the best source (in my opinion) available. this is a very readable, very etertaining book - worth every penny, a simply great buy and I thoroughly recommend it.

Yet another superb film from the superb direction of Shane Meadows. All of Shane Meadows are great, funny, and very "bittersweet," quite mickey taking of the extreme sections of the working class. Very watchable, well acted and well scripted withiout much input from Shane Meadows - the actors simply improvise.
