5.0 out of 5 stars ON SECURE GROUND, 19 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is not often I would give 5 stars to an album on the strength of one track, but track four, the title track is a must especially if you like Dunster's 'Yoga Lounge' album, it just stands out as a great piece of music. That is not to say there is anything wrong with the rest of the album, it is a fine album, that merits 4 stars. Play it all the way through and enjoy Dunster's usual mix of east & west. Lovely music for personal relaxation of background music at, say, a dinner party. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABOVE THE ORDINARY, 19 Sept. 2009

This review is from: Yoga Lounge (Audio CD)
Over the years I have tried many 'new age' recordings to help me relax. Most recordings are like 'elevator musak'. This is different this music has a structure, tune and rhythm. Yes, it does relax and it can also stand as a genuine piece of music in its own right. Listen to the sound bites, then buy the album and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT ALBUM, 3 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Heartattack And Vine (Audio CD)
Tom Waits releases a great album!! Not an unusual headline, because he nearly always releases great albums. But, this is particulary great. the title track with its clever line about 'God, when he's drunk', 'Jersey Girl' and the superb 'Ruby's Arms' and there are six other tracks to enjoy. If you are new to Waits, this is a ideal starter. In fact, most of his early Elekra/Asylum albums are ideal to get into his music. So, find out why 'There ain't no Devil...' and slide into Ruby's Arms.

4.0 out of 5 stars CHANCE TO PURCHASE??, 3 Aug. 2009
This comedy ran for three series, the first two being original and very funny. It has the distinction of being the first programme to be first shown on Ch 4 and then repeated on ITV. It is also 25 years since it was first shown, So, why has this not been released on DVD????

Please, whoever owns the rights to this please allow it to be released. A box set of all three series would be nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT CAN I SAY..., 15 Mar. 2009
This review is from: 1 (Audio CD)
Tim Hardin's first Verve album, and probably his best. His tragic career has been well documented, so just listen to these songs. Ok, not every one is a classic, but, Hang on to a dream, Misty Roses and, oh well, perhaps they are all classics after all. If you like Leonard Cohen & Tom Waits (and yes, I am a fan of both), then this guy actually came before them, he deserves to be on the same pedestal. Anyway, just buy this album (or even the Verve Complete Recordings) and you will find a reason to believe...

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST FOR COHEN FANS, 18 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Live In London (Audio CD)
I was fortunate enough to see this concert, recorded at the O2 on 17th July 2008, it was simply awesome. For those who went, they know what to expect, for those who did not manage to get tickets, this is a must. Cohen at his best. Buy this CD and watch out for the DVD release. Cohen was in top form, the backing artists were superb. Fautless.

5.0 out of 5 stars CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE - CRIMINAL!!!, 8 May 2008
This review is from: Towards The Light (Audio CD)
There are many albums that claim to be relaxing, I have bought several of them, none compare to this marvelous collection of sublime piano music. If you are a fan of Satie's Gymnopedies or enjoy the Classic FM collection 'The Quiet Room', you will simply adore this. It has not been out long, indeed, not as long as 'Blue in Blue' (his other album), but to see it listed as 'currenly unavailable' is criminal. If you can find a copy buy it - and enjoy it - a rare thing of beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MARVELOUS COMBINATION, 8 Jun. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blue Alert (Audio CD)
This is a great album,not a duff track in sight. Cohen has always had great backing singers, Jennifer Warnes, Sharon Robinson & Anjani to name but three. Warnes has already recorded an album of Cohen material, Robinson should have gor equal credit fot '10 New Songs' and now this... Anjani is excellent throughout,the songs perfectly balanced between words, miusic and voice. Anyway, enough about the album, I bought it when it first came out in 2006 and only bought these re-issue for the DVD and, trust me, it is worth it. The two music videos are great and there is even a guest appearance from the great man. The 'making of..' is also very interesting. Worth buying? You bet.

5.0 out of 5 stars CANON IN Delight, 30 Aug. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Please note there are two versions of Pachebel's Canon by the Paillard Chamber Orchestra - also note this is the best (not that their later version is bad). This version is a little slower in tempo, which actually suits the piece better. I first heard this, would you believe, on Radio One in the late 60's, fell in love with it and have enjoyed it ever since (I had to travel in to London's West End to find an import copy - no Amazon or internet in those days). Yes, the rest of the album is good also and Fasch's Trumpet Concerto is well worth a listen, but, you will be buying it for the premier version of a much recorded classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars SENSUAL SUMMER SOUNDS, 2 Aug. 2006
This review is from: sketches of satie (Audio CD)
The music on this album is excellent. Gymnopedies No.1 is one of my favourite pieces of music and I have many versions of it, this version ranks along side the best. I first heard the piece at the 'Light Fantastic' show back in the late 70's. It was played by Rod Argent, I purchased the single (45rpm) was I thought was really good, however, by accident I later played it at 33rpm. At that speed it was stunning (and much closer to the classical tempo). The rest of the Satie songs on this album are very well played. If you can get hold of this buy it. Congratulations to the Hackett brothers for a superb recording
