The Very Best of Max Boyce
The Very Best of Max Boyce

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best of Max Boyce, 21 Oct 2013

Recommended for rugby fans the world over, whether the play or watch, for all lovers of folk song, witty entertainment and beautiful singing. Compulsory for Welsh, I would think, and afficionardos of that special country. A true, modern troubadour.

Glad it's available on Mp3. I heard the première in1954 and now can revel in it in my own space and time, just when I want. Excellent. Thank you Mr. technology! Crystal clear performance from ROH et al. of a mystical but youthful, positive and exuberant work that never really seems to have taken hold of the public imagination but can be a rewarding and illuminating experience, for those who persevere. Liking to stick my neck out, as always, I 'give it ten' as they say.

Outstanding and engaging production with a fine cast and period detail, even If at times a little over stylised. A Classic Agatha Christie to enjoy.

Seems fine so far: need a bit more time to see how it compares to the old fashioned lanolin cream that was readily available. Not a lot of point really, as the product seems fairly hard to come by but it would be nice to know.

Original music treated with skill, refinement and respect sometimes revealing fresh insights into the music itself before blending it subtly with modern mannerisms and vocabulary. An excellent disc and approachable from any music-sensitive angle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Certified Copy, 10 July 2011
This review is from: Certified Copy [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
Familiar theme - a marriage in need of repair. Stunning visuals. Pace and ambiance of film set in the redolent Tuscan countryside. No good if your are in a rush or hanging on for pyrotechnics. This is a subtle and sensitive film handling a delicate subject in the way that only actors of this calibre can do. Like a good Vino Rosso it improves with each encounter. I was getting really into it by the third viewing. Excellent for culture vultures or lovers of Italy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well, I believe in Miracles ...., 24 Dec 2010
.... so maybe that's why I take easily to it. In the polemic over this (1947) or the later (1994) versions - both of which are superb films - choose the earlier for a greater helping of magic-cake.
