3.0 out of 5 stars Dylan and friends may have been having having fun in Woodstock in 1967 but there is little here ..., 7 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
'Odds and Ends', one of the titles from the original Basement Tapes release, neatly sums up this motlely collection of tracks and other bits and pieces. The original 1975 release was at most interesting, here there is little on this collextion of six CDs that adds to either Dylan's reputation or his oevre. Dylan and friends may have been having having fun in Woodstock in 1967 but there is little here that bears scutiny beyond noting their mateyenthusiasm and self indulgence.An introduction to the early form of some of his later better worked songs [oten a such a poor pace and tempo]further underlines the overall lack of assurity and confidence in of the material at this time.

Perhaps I was too optimistic to expect much from the official release of these private sessions. Although the sound had been cleaned up somewhat from the unofficial bootlegs, which have been available for some time, in this manifestation of an interesting way to idle afternoons away, this extra clarity only exposes the incipient weakness of much ot the additional material.

It interesting that the five non Dylan tracks,from the original release have been dropped this time and that onme of the strongest tracks 'See That my Grave is Kept Clean', previously available in a rough bootleg form has not been included. I wonder about Dylan professional judgement and why he sanctioned the release of this material, as it singularly fails to enhance any aspect of his lwork. I am sure he and the band enjoyed the experiencies at Big Pink and the other venues where these recordings were made but I wonder how often they have returned to listen to them - not too often I suspect

Be aware, very aware, this selection of over rated material is Dylan only for the ultimate completist .

If you have the Live in Madison Square Gardens Concert then this is superflous. There is nothing new here for anyone but the completist to inverst their money in.

3.0 out of 5 stars Live on Stage in Memphis, 19 Mar 2014

An album for those who collect live recordings of Elvis or hte Elvis completist. Not the best of Presley live by any standard comomg between the great dates of hte late sixties and early seventies and the disasterous latter period when his decline turns into a fall. This album stands at tht cusp when although not yeta a a caracature of his ealy self. For completists only

An interesting and useful reference for anyone interested in hte later and declining years of this unique railway. Some interesting illustrations are contained in the volume, which although readable coiuld havebenn far better edited to make a shorter and certailly more coherent document

5.0 out of 5 stars Live on Stage in Memphis: the full recording, 19 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of all the live albums completed by Elvis this has been my favourite since its original releaase in the mid 1970s.There is a vigour about his performance on this release although all of the tracks are well known and in most fans collection The bonus tracks fulfil the meaning of the word rather than usual scraps and outakes where this has been used so often in the past on Presley's releases.The Ricmond VA bonus recording is another example of this -an interesting but far from essentialaddition to the ouvre. Nevertheless, this new two CD release is an excellent buy for the still substantial Preslesy community as well as a useful insight for new fans. The CD is recommended with out reservation.

This review is from: High Hopes (Audio CD)
A new album from Bruce Springsteen is something I always look forward to. This was no different and the anticipation was fulfilled. Although I am still digesting this new offereing fully this is a fully enjoyable experience.Tom's contributoin has introduced a different and intereing domention to the overall sound of the group Of course, and like anyone else, I already have my favourites but I found it particularly pleasureable to hear contributions from Danny and 'The Big Man' again- very nostalgic I look forward to the next visiit from Bruce and the bnand to the UK

2.0 out of 5 stars A christmas present for a fan, 7 Feb 2014

I bought this for my wife for Christmas. She is a fan I am not. Fortunately, she [and my son too] enjoyed it. For me it was an experience but I remain a largely unenthuastic listener.

I must start this review am a big Mary Chapin Carpenter fan. i have seen her in concert a couple of times and own all her albums. As a result, I was intrigued by the concept behind this new release. However, while taking the concept on board on playing it a few times I remain somewhat underwhelmed.Frankly, [and surprisingly in the circumstances] I find some of the arrangements a little dull and the choice of songs somwhat unimaginative. What ithe release of this CD has donehas done is to make me return to the original songs, so at least this release has served one useful, if somewhat tangental,

4.0 out of 5 stars A good mid-priced cable, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good cable which gives a realistic, clear and tranparent sound for a reasonable price. I am vert pleased with this mid-priced cable, which i have used before. Moving my speakers meant I needed a longer run. A happy buyer.
