A truly classical rock anthem, which always makes you think about it's historic context at the heart if Europe. A masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crystal Clear, 17 May 2014

Am a big fan of Fleetwood Mac, so it was a natural progression to listen to Stevie"s solo material - and it certainly does not disappoint. Would recommend this album to everyone

5.0 out of 5 stars a must for elton fans, 10 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rare Masters (Audio CD)
This album completes the collection for most Elton fans, containing lesser known early songs, 'b' sides from singles, alternative takes, and the much-forgotten 'Friends' album. Most of the tracks have never featured on Eltons albums and they still sound good to me. The man's a genius.

4.0 out of 5 stars give it a chance, 10 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a massive Elton fan, having heard two tracks on the radio, i was far from convinced. Of course, these tracks are not better than the originals and you need to play this a few times before you really open your ears and move beyond the love of the originals. Its a bit short in length i found, but that left me wanting to hear more, particularly as the closing 'Sixty' i found to be the highlight of the entire album. Give it a chance and it grows on you, and also reminds you to revisit the orginals ....

an excellent career-spanning coverage of the genius that was Roy Wood, with all the favourite songs of The Move, Wizzard, and some lesser known solo material

5.0 out of 5 stars 10cc at their best, 10 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
10cc were at their brilliant best in the early years with the variety of songs created by Creme, Godley, Stewart and Gouldman. One of the best, and most under-rated, bands of their era, 10cc are up there with Supertramp and Queen, and this cd is the perfect introduction to their early years

5.0 out of 5 stars TIMELESS TIME, 13 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Time (Audio CD)
Forget the various 'Greatest Hits', 'Best of ...' etc albums, and listen through the entire ELO back-catalogue, and i'm sure you will find 'Time' to be the most under-rated of their albums. The earlier orchestral sounds had passed through the era of great commercial success ('Out Of The Blue' and 'New World Record') and reached this more synthesised electronic highly-melodic part of their career. 'Twilight', 'Ticket To The Moon', 'Hold On Tight', and 'Here Is The News' are the most familiar tracks, but this concept album is top class from beginning to end, and even the bonus tracks are not out of place, and are thankfully new songs not alternative takes of other songs. ELO were a breath of fresh air to music when they arrived, only wished i'd had the opportunity to see them live .... any hope of a reunion tour ?

5.0 out of 5 stars perfectly carly, 6 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fantastic value collection of Carly Simon at her absolute best. The album that made her famous was 'No Secrets', which together wirh 'Anticipation' and 'Playing Possum' (both included) form the absolute peak of her songwriting and performing prowess. No songwriter, even at this truly great time, could surpass the honesty and intimacy of her lyrics, and any listener will find aspects of their own life in her songs. simply a genius.

4.0 out of 5 stars Art for Arts sake, 3 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent compilation of Art Garfunkels best-loved tracks. The only disappointment is the absence of tracks from his first solo album "angel clare" - tracks such as "all I know" and "travelling boy" should have been here !!

4.0 out of 5 stars Summertime in the Sixties, 1 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Very Best of The Byrds (Audio CD)
If, like me, you purchased this album knowing only half a dozen tracks, you will not be disappointed. The jangling guitars and tight harmonies represent a soundtrack of my childhood in the mid-sixties, and if you love the music of this era, this album will be a great addition to your collection.
