1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality cheap rubbish, 26 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't often leave reviews but this item is so bad that I felt I should! To start with the instructions are translated (badly) from a foreign language. I have no problem with this except that the English is so bad that it makes understanding how to use it near on impossible. If you are buying this item to take on holiday then I would recommend setting it up before you go. We went away only to discover that the base unit is faulty and beeps randomly whether you are 2 feet away from it or 20 feet away. I bought this because of the good reviews and although I am price conscious I would say that buying a better quality more expensive product is essential for me. This is just cheap imported tat!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice packaging but probably better to wait for the official release, 27 April 2011
Not sure what the previous reviewer was saying as CD1 includes the original master recordings-in other words the tracks that were on the original album. The packaging and "look" of this set is excellent-great photos and a quality presentation-however the content does leave a lot to be desired. Firstly the translation of the text is appalling and seems a bit stilted. Secondly and most importantly the quality of the recordings is average. Despite saying that they used the original tapes (RCA have confirmed that this is not the case) there is a lot of hiss and background noise.On the plus side there are some original radio ads which are great for completists.A couple of small points-why are amazon selling bootlegs? (the outtakes are still in copyright in Europe as the 50 year rule means 50 years from release not from recording) and why have MRS gone to all this effort only to leave out the Wooden Heart Outtakes!I would recommend this set only for the completist (like me!) otherwise wait for the official version that comes out later this year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous but still great!, 17 Feb. 2010
Whilst not as good as previous series, Nip Tuck still continues to entertain. As long as you don't take it too seriously then there's no reason why you won't find this as addictive as series 1 to 4

1.0 out of 5 stars Possibly The Worst Film Of All Time, 17 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As someone who has seen both Plan 9 From Outer Space and Lesbian Vampire Killers I do not award this film the title of "worst film of all time" lightly. However, unlike Plan 9 or LVK it is completely devoid of any of the ingrediants essential for a horror film i.e It isn't scary! either psychologically or visually, and to compare it to Shaun Of The Dead is just plain misleading! Low budget horror films can be both funny and scary and can work on several levels.....but this isn't one of them. Avoid at all costs

1.0 out of 5 stars for collectors only, 18 Sept. 2005
This review is from: Tickle Me (Audio CD)
This is possibly the most pointless of all the FTD releases. Tracks from a terrible film! Plus all the tracks are old Elvis tracks that had previously been released....another of the Colonel's money saving ideas! and a favour to Allied Artists who were in dire financial trouble at the time. There really is no need to buy this unless you have to buy everything Elvis! me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this album today!, 19 Nov. 2003
What more needs to be said. This is the coolest, most laid back and thoughtful album i've ever heard. Buy this album today and file it next to Tapestry by Carole King!

4.0 out of 5 stars The last great James Brown Album, 19 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Gravity (Audio CD)
Of all the JB albums released in the last 20 years, this is the only one that gets replayed time and time again. Tracks such as Gravity, Dr Feelgood and Living in America show a man who, given the right material, can still cut it with the best. Although it's very "80's" in it's sound, it still retains that JB sound. Dan Hartman did a great job producing and writing and of course Living in America became and instant JB classic. This is well worth buying!

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential purchase...for the fans!!, 19 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Viva Las Vegas (Audio CD)
As Elvis soundtracks go, this is one of the best and is a welcome reissue from FTD. Viva las Vegas has always been popular amongst the fans, and Elvis's obvious enthusiam for Ann-Margaret in the film shines through on this CD! The bonus tracks are a welcome addition and give a more complete overview of the recording sessions than the "double feature" release a few years ago. As with most Elvis soundtracks, it's for the fans only...the remastering leaves a lot to be desired, and I can't imagine the casual listener ever buying this, but for us die-hards it's an essential purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Even die hard fan's won't want this, 19 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Frankie & Johnny (Audio CD)
This must rate as possibly one of the worst Elvis sound tracks released in his lifetime-and this re-release does nothing to enhance his legend, and only gives critics even more fuel to knock Elvis's somewhat patchy film career.
The outtakes are pointless, simply because the songs are so poor in the first place. If you really want to buy an Elvis soundtrack, buy Jailhouse Rock or King Creole and be blown away by a man at the peak of his game!

2.0 out of 5 stars purely for collectors, 6 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Spring Tours '77 (Audio CD)
If you're a big Elvis fan, as I am, then this is an absolutely essential purchase. BMG have finally released some rare live tracks from 1977! Unfortunately this is where the good news ends. Tragically, these tracks reveal the extremely fragile state of Elvis' voice, and seem to show a man who knows he's living on borrowed time. On many of the songs Elvis seems bored or out of tune, or a combination of both. This isn't helped by the limited budget for this release, which didn't allow for any remixing or remastering of the tracks. If you are a casual fan, but feel the need to buy a late-period Elvis album, then I would recommend either Elvis in Concert or Moody Blue. However, if like me, you have to buy everything released, then of course it's an essential purchase!
