This review is from: That's What I'm Saying (Audio CD)
BE AWARE THAT THIS IS DEFINETELY NOTHING TO DO WITH STEVE YOUNG SINGER/SONGWRITER OF SEVEN BRIDGES ROAD/VISION OF A CHILD FAME. THIS IS AN INSTRUMENTAL CD WHICH IS NOT VERY GOOD. THIS ARTIST SHOULD HAVE A SEPERATE PAGEALL TO HIMSELF. THE REAL STEVE YOUNG IS A VERY MUCH UNDERATTED UNDERPLAYED SINGER/SONGWRITER OF THE HIGHEST DEGREE. HIS VOCAL RANGE IS SECOND BAR NONE AND A LISTEN TO ANY OF HIS SONGS SHOULD VERIFY HIS VERY HIGH TALENT. HIS SONGWRITING IS OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY. CHECK OUT CDS RANGING FROM HONKY TONK MAN/SEVEN BRIDGES ROAD/PRIMAL YOUNG/RENERGADE PICKER/NO PLACE TO FALL/LOOK HOMEWARD ANGEL TO NAME BUT A FEW OF HIS CLASSIC ALBUMS. AS A PREVIOUSREVIEWER STATED WISH HE WOULDCOME BACK TO NORTHERN IRELAND TO A BETTER VENUE THAN LAST TIME AS AUDIENCE NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF HIS FAN BASE. AUDIENCE VERY ROWDY AND DRUNK. THE BRONTE IN RATHRILAND WOULD BE PERFECT. STAY AWAY FROM THISARTIST FOR THE ORIGINAL STEVE YOUNG.

3.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have always liked CharlieDaniels with his unique southern rock style, but not much "Dixie"about this offering. Suppose it had to be that c.daniels wouldcover Dylan as he played on some early Dylan albums. The problem here is the song choice. Charlies voice is a bit too ragged to tackle songs like "tangled up in blue" and "country pie" and one of Dylans least favourite song of mine "gotta serve somebody". Charlies voice is more suited to the more sedate renderings of "I shall be released"/"mr tambourine man" and "the timesthey-are-a-changin'".Whilst there are better versions of these songs around, the CDB treat these versions competently and the majority of the instruementation is acoustic based with banjo and mandolin with Charlies unique fiddle stlye this is a pleasant interpretation of "Dylans work, albeit a pretty standard reading of Sylans more popular songs. The 3 star rating means its not the best Dylan tribute, but not the worst. Recommended for Dylan fans and die-hard Charlie Daniels followers also.

5.0 out of 5 stars SENSATIONAL, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parker Millsap (Audio CD)
IMMEDIATE 5 STAR RATING HERE FOR AN EXCEPTIONAL SINGER/SONGWRITER. EVERY SONG ON THIS CD IS VERY MEMORABLE WITH TRUCK STOP GOSPEL/THE VILLAIN AND AT THE BAR BRILLIANT. THIS IS A MIXTURE OF FOLK AND ROCKY COUNTRY. PARKER HAS A VERY DEFINABLE VOICE WHICH MEANS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHO THE PERFORMER IS. HEARD PARKER MILLSAP ON BOB HARRIS'S BBC2 SUNDAY MORNING SHOW AND WAS HOOKED RIGHT AWAY. EXCELLENT SELECTION OF SONGS, ALL FANTSTIC. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CD TO ALL LOVERS OF SINGER/SONGWRITERS. ALL SONGS WRITTEN BY THE SINGER HIMSELF. THIS CHAP WILL GO VERY FAR IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS. ALONG THE SAME LINES AS JAKE BUGG. BUY IMMEDIATELY.

1.0 out of 5 stars RUBBISH RUBBISH RUBBISH, 1 Jan 2014
AVOID AVOID AVOID. THIS IS PURE NONSENCE. THIS IS A SUPPOSED CONCERT FROM AUSTRIA IN 1987 SUPPORTING THE LANDING ON WATER TOUR. THE PROBLEM IS NOT WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF THE ARTIST BUT THE METHOD OF VIDEO REPRODUCTION. A MATE OF MINE BOUGHT THIS AND BROUGHT IT ROUND TO VIEW AND CELEBRATE 2Q014. WHAT A MASSIVE DISAPPOINTMENT. FIRSTLY THE PICTURE DOES NOT FILL THE FULL SCREEN AS IT IS PRESENTED IN A SMALL SQUARE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TV. THE FILMING TECHNIQUE IS SOMEONE WITH A PORTABLE VIDEO CAMERA STUCK SOME WHERE IN THE AUDIENCE WITH BASIC ZOOM FACILITIES AND SOUND. THE SOUND IS AWFUL ESPECIALLY DURING TRHE ACOUSTIC SECTION WHICH IS BARELY AUDIBLE DUE TO THE CROWD HANDCLAPS AND SINGING ALONG. PICTURE QUALITY IS EVEN WORSE AS THE "CAMERA MAN" IS NONE TOO STEADY AND THE PICTURE SHAKES QUITE VIOLENTLY IN PLACES. WATCHING THIS FOR SOMETIME MADE ME RATHER NAUSCIOUS AND HAD TO TURN MY HEAD FROM LOOKING AT THE SCREEN ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS. SOME OF THE SONGS ARE INCOMPLETE DUE TO, I PRESUME, THE CAMERAMAN CHANGING VIDEO TAPES. THIS OCCURS DURING THE ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCES. WHEN THE PICTURE RETURNS THE POSITION OF THE CAMERAMAN HAS CHANGED AND HE IS NOW MORE TO THE RIGHT OF THE CONCERT HALL. ON ONE OCCASION THE VIEW IS OBSCURRED BY SOMEONE'S HEAD LEAVING THE VIEWER WATCHING A DARK SCREEN. THE LIGHTING IS PROVIDED BY THE VENUE AND BETWEEN EACH SONG IT IS COMPLETELY DARK.THE CONCERT ITSELF IS GREAT BUT THIS DVD SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. ITS OBVIOUS THIS HAS BEEN TRANSFERED FROM AN OLD VIDEO TAPE FROM THE TIME AND THE RESTRICTIONS THEY HELD. THIS WOULD ONLY BE RELEVANT TO THE PERSON FILMING THIS AS A REMINDER TO THEM OF A GOOD NEIL YOUNG SHOW. THAT IS WERE THIS RUBBISH SHOULD STAY. MY ADVISE IS DO NOT WAIST YOUR HARD EARNED CASH ON THIS AND STICK TO THE OFFICIAL NEIL YOUNG DVD RELEASES FROM AMAZON.THIS WOULD BE MORE SUITED TO YOUTUBE. I KNOW AMAZON CANNOT MONITOR EVERY ITEM OF MEDIA THEY SELL AND REVIEWS LIKE THIS ONE AND THE LAST REVIEWERS SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED. BUYER BEWARE!!!!
AMAZON MUST TAKE THIS RUBBISH OFF THEIR SELLING ITEMS FOR NEIL YOUNG IF ONLY TO NOT DAMAGE THEIR EXCELLENT REPUTATION.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE REAL DAC, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Texas Moon (Audio CD)
THIS IS DAC AT HIS BEST. HAVE LP OF THIS AND GREAT TO SEE IT ON CD. JUST COE WITH GUITAR. GREAT VERSION OF JACKSON BROWNE'S "THESE DAYS" AND BILLY JOE SHAVER'S "RIDE ME DOWN EASY". COE CONTRIBUTES TWO SONGS HERE. "FUZZY WAS AN OUTLAW" AND THE EXCELLENT "MARY MAGDALINE " WHICH MAY NOT SUIT EVERYONE. RECOMMEND THIS VERY HIGHLY FOR FANS OF DAC'S EARLY OUTPUT, NOTABLY "MYSTERIOUS RHINESTONE COWBOY" AND "PENNITENIARY BLUES". EXCELLENT PRICE FROM AMAZON AND WORTH IT FOR THE FRONT COVER ALONE.

5.0 out of 5 stars REASONABLE 45CD, 25 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Somewhere (Audio CD)
ANYTHING BY HENDRIX WILL ALWYS RECIEVE A HIGH RTING FROM ME. THIS IS A SLOW JAZZY TUNE WITH HENDRIX'S CLASSIC GUITAR PLAYING. TAKEN FROM THE NEW CD "PEOPLE HELL AND ANGELS" CD IT IS A WELCOME ADDITION TO ALL OF JIMI'S RECORDINGS. I THINK THAT THIS SHOULD BE THE LAST OF THESE SO CLLED "NEW RECORDINGS" S THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL IS BECOMING SLIGHTLY WORN.
