The OS produce the best maps in the country. They are the originals. Everyone else copies them but never beats them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Welcome Reminder, 1 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Caravanserai (Audio CD)
I bought this on LP years ago. It's a bit scratched so a CD replacement was in order. I'd forgotten what a great album it is. One for everyone who loves good guitar playing.

The recommended pubs always provide good beer. You'll never go home wondering if maybe you shouldn't have drunk that pint that looked a bit cloudy.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than a hanger-on, 1 Feb. 2013

Souther is famed, if at all, for his connections with the Eagles and Linda Ronstadt but he pens a good song and is worthy in his own right. Four stars as this is good value.

This is the first McCorckle that I have bought and she is up there with the best, although saying nothing new.

I came to the Burns Unit via Karine Polwart and, although I'd pick any of her albums above this, I'm pleased that I bought it. For me, 'Blood, Ice And Ashes' is the standout.

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as ever, 2 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone who saw Judy Collins on her short tour of Britain a couple of years ago will know that the voice is still as clear as ever. Although the set list of that time was slightly different from that on this CD, it will provide a happy reminder. Those who only remember Collins from the late sixties or her early seventies 'Send In The Clowns' MOR period will not be disappointed. They may even marvel that a seventy-year-old woman can have such a beautiful tone. OK, so you know most of the tunes, but 'Both Sides Now' is a better, more mature version that on 'Wildflowers' and 'Moon Is A Harsh Mistress' better than on 'Judith'. If I've docked a star it's because this CD does not reach the heights of 'Who Knows Where The Time Goes', her album with Stephen Stills. We know what happened there. Is it a coincidence that I feel 'Helplessly Hoping' fails to set fire?

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Bargain, 13 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a biased and subjective review. Don't trust it. There's something about Carly that makes me wallow in mild ecstasy. My wife loves her as well, so it can't be just those LP sleeve photographs. I own all the LPs covered here but saw this package as too good a bargain to miss. (You can't play LPs in a car). The first album is special. 'Anticipation' has material that can't quite reach those heights but is still very good. 'No Secrets' has the hits. 'Hotcakes' is fun and up to standard. I had always considered 'Playing Possum' one of her lesser albums but relistening has brought unexpected delights.

I love Carly Simon but this is a patchy set that I am unlikely to listen to very often. Too many tries at too many styles.

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Only Want One, This Is It, 13 Aug. 2012

This review is from: Stones in the Road (Audio CD)
Mary Chapin Carpenter has been consistent throughout her recording career and pretty nearly all of her albums are worth considering. Fine lyrics, melodic tunes. Polished (if occsionally bland) backings and production. But if you only want one Mary Chapin Carpenter recording, this should be it.
