3.0 out of 5 stars Ambivalent, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had huge expectations for this album, but in truth it fell far short of what I had hoped for and initially I gave it just a single star...

Now I have heard it several times in the last three days, and I will continue to listen for a day or two more, but it is starting to grow on me. Here's hoping...

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a novice to the world of Fritz Delius, I bought this box set on the advice of another, and am perfectly happy I did so.

I cannot compare the works here to works featuring other artists, but I really do not need to: This is the one I have and I would buy it again - in a heartbeat.

He imbues many of his works with delicacy and suggestion, and to my inexperienced ear, he always seems to avoid clubbing his audience, preferring to entice them to share each journey and become part thereof.

He has certainly been accused of meandering, and most Delians would rear up in outrage in his defence, but I find that indirect route to be an absolute part of his charm. He seems so often to be searching for something...something pure, perhaps? Who knows?

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tome does exactly what it's supposed to: It values all albums pressed in the UK and includes 100+ entries.
No serious collector should pass this tool up.

Don't tell the publisher, but I would pay far more than the asking price! The first deal you make might pay for the book and still leave you with change...

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a medium-sized collection (4000 units) and this will certainly help me:
A/ Value my collection, and
B/ Determine the value of future purchases.

This is only for USA pressings, but I use this in conjunction with 'Rare Record Price Guide' to cover the British pressings, and that is more than enough for my needs.
