5.0 out of 5 stars That Girl's Fantastic Debut!, 7 Oct. 2003
This review is from: That Girl (Audio CD)
I heard the first single from this album("Inappropriate") a few months ago and decided to wait for the album. Well it was certainly worth it. The songs here you can actually connect with and they make you think. The main theme behind the songs is love and not just the good stuff (who hasn't been there?). One not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars PORTRAIT OF PERFECTION, 5 Oct. 2003
Eben Adams is a struggling artist who seemingly has no muse from which to work from..until he meets Jennie in Central Park. There is just something about her he can't quite put his finger on.... why she seems to have aged several years in just a matter of days... her talk of the past as if it were now... and why is she so fearful of the future? A beautifully crafted film, one they certainly can't make anymore, about the power of love through time. Thoroughly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paul pleases himself!, 6 Mar. 2003
This review is from: Press To Play (Audio CD)
This album was released two years after Paul's 1984 film "Give My Regards to Broad St." recieved a critical mauling. Perhaps after trying too hard to please everyone Macca retreated to the studio and for a change made music to suit himself. This is quite a bare and rough sounding record in places and certainly isn't what you might expect from a Paul McCartney album. Just one or two duff tracks here to my mind,"Move Over Busker" and the questionable remix of "It's Not True", of which I prefered the acoustic (b-side) version. See, I said that Macca made an album to please himself!

5.0 out of 5 stars GET THE PICTURE!, 3 Feb. 2003
This review is from: Myrmidons Of Melodrama (Audio CD)
Until recently the Shangri-las back catalogue had suffered from shoddy repackaging of their material, ill thought out compilations with tracks in terrible sound quality. That was until now, with this the second version of "MYRMIDONS OF MELODRAMA" which features hard to find songs and some great period photographs of the girls. All the tracks here have been improved upon since the first "MYRMIDONS.." CD, in fact you could almost be right there in the studio with them! Several tracks are also in clear crisp stereo. The Shangri-las are one of the greatest girl groups of all time and this album is worthy of their greatness.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Little Girl with the BIG voice., 2 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Complete Decca Years (Audio CD)
This 4 CD box set contains almost all of Judy Garland's recordings made for Decca from 1936 to 1947. During her time with this label Judy rose from being just a singer to one of the world's best known talents. You can hear that talent shine through all the way in this collection. Featuring duets with Gene Kelly, Mickey Rooney and Bing Crosby, amongst others, and material you might not expect to hear from Judy Garland (including what may be the quintessential 1940s pop tune "On the Aitchison,Topeka & the Santa Fe" with The Merry Macs), this is a valuable document of one the finest singers of not just her own time, but of all time. Also included are rare alternate takes, some of which are released for the first time. You want to know why all the ballyhoo about Judy Garland? Listen here.

4.0 out of 5 stars BRIAN'S TRIUMPH!, 6 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Pet Sounds (Audio CD)
Not so long ago talk of a Brian Wilson live album would've been greeted with disbelief. A live version of 1966's "Pet Sounds" would have been laughed at, but the aural evidence is here following Brian's recent four night residence at The Royal Festival Hall in January this year. You can't say this is better than the studio album, but it is a lovely addition to it. The musicianship is incredible and the songs are brought to life in an unimaginable way. So go and buy this and believe the unbelieveable!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVELY DEBUT, 23 May 2002
This review is from: The Love Junk Store (Audio CD)
I've been waiting for The Alice Band's first album
for what seems like ages. Well, it has certainly been worth the wait. One good thing is that Charity, Amy and Audrey can all play guitar so it's not your average-nowadays-put-together-to-make-a-quick-buck-kind of an affair. So I was well impressed with "The Love Junk Store". It's full of good songwriting and great musicianship and gorgeous vocals. One of the best albums of the year,treat yourself to it.


Chaplin: His Life And Art
Chaplin: His Life And Art

5.0 out of 5 stars IN THE LIMELIGHT, AGAIN., 25 April 2002
This is David Robinson's updated version of "Chaplin, His Life & Art" and it contains an absolute wealth of information about Chaplin before, during and after his life. Aside from Chaplin's own "My Autobiography" this is the closest you can get to understanding the man. Whereas his own book was published in 1964 and goes no further, Robinson's biography gives us the full story from Chaplin's poverty stricken childhood, through to his days with the Karno troupe, onto his first love Hetty Kelly, then to America where he found fame and fortune to the extent of which he'd never dreamed of. The darker side of this genius' life is also delved into with the FBI's unrelenting persecution of the man resulting in his leaving the USA forever. David Robinson has carried out some painstaking research here, there's even a list of Chaplin's early tours of Great Britain before he became synonymous with a cane. If you want to know about Charlie Chaplin then this is the book.
