This review is from: A Little Time for Jah (Audio CD)
I coukd listen to this mans message forever . Teach the kids , get it right .... Max is the man to show us what we,re about here . Opinionated - totally , and brave enough to say what many people want to be hearing .. the only real successor to John Lennon . The music is completely sussed , effortless vibe , for the future stories to be told ... teach the world to sing ...Max

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guitar ,, 13 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The guitar man entertains us with a style comparable to Mozart in his day ... well thought out structures with a certain perfect symmetry in construction , very rare in lead guitarists who tend to wander about without any real defining clarity in the musical structure . If he did this live he would probably receive the top accolade .

This review is from: immorality inc. (Paperback)
Made into the film Freejack with Anthony Hopkins and Mick Jagger , read the original and get into the mind behind the charac terization . This is one of the areas where Sheckley excels but is so difficult to portray on screen .

This is a classic book about a future civilization where war is banned , yet murder is legitimized for those who want to play , in THE GAME ... get a dose of genius here . A film based on an earlier short story version was made in Italy with superstars . Thats two Sheckley books as films with top billing ... what about the rest ?

The People Trap plus Mindswap
The People Trap plus Mindswap
by Robert Sheckley

Nobody comes up with them like Sheckley did . The man they all want to copy . No doubt the master of SF , with wit and plot worthy of the worlds newest literary form . You can see his ideas re-packaged in a million ways from Hollywood to Horror , and The People Trap is the best place to start .Stories that could rank with Biblical parables , yet absolutely hilarious , the only thing the good book had missing , until Pythons . Mindswap is so beyond , I'd hesitate to even try to describe it , but it is probably what got him banned by large distributers , and hence allowed others like Douglas Adams to climb into his shoes ... but time will reveal the masterpieces of the master , yet you may need to swallow a dictionary to read some of his prose .


Puccini's Cafe
Puccini's Cafe

5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked yet inspired album, 13 Mar 2014

This review is from: Puccini's Cafe (Audio CD)
There are some great tracks on this little CD . Not the flashiest of the Akkerman vintage , but really goog to get into if you don't want to be engrossed by the sound . Often play it on retiring for the night ... ends a day perfectly . Albatross , the Peter Green classic is given a different treatment ... Spanish Roads is sublime and Puccinis Cafe bids you goodnite because it's hard to find something to follow it with that won't break the mood you'll just want to hang in on !

This goes on when I want my space filled with music that enhances yet does not dominate and allows a magical matrix to enthrall the activities with a kind of neutral hypersonic warmth ...

If you want to hear sounds quite unheard in western media culture , this is one place to go ... voices , instruments , songs , all from another world and rich in vibe and soulfulness .

I believe Terry Riley will be looked back on as a Bach , Mozart , Beethoven , Stravinsky ..... Riley . This album proves it . Along with Shivkumar Sharma , probably the most innovative musician alive today . It will take a lot of people a long time to catch up .
