Where's Ringo?: The Story of The Beatles in 20 Visual Puzzles

4.0 out of 5 stars For kids and grown ups, 5 Mar. 2015
Funny book which pleases the Beatles/Ringo fan who wants to have something different from most books about the fab four. For kids as well as grown ups.
Didn't buy it at Amazon, though. Since they stopped Free Super Saver Delivery to Denmark last year, most things are too expensive to buy when you live outside Britain. Bought this at a danish mail store which saved me for about 6 £.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great box, 19 Feb. 2015
This review is from: That's The Way It Is (Audio CD)
This is a great box in many ways: A good handful of concerts from Las Vegas (and interesting to find out that not to concerts were alike), a very fine presentation, two dvd's and a heavy booklet that really shows you Elvis at Vegas. Highly recommendable if you get it at the right price. I live in Denmark and decided not to buy it at Amazon because they have dropped the free delivery to Denmark. Instead I found it at a shop in Central London while on holiday - for 90 £ in a still factory sealed version.So that was a win-win situation for me.

This review is from: The River & The Thread (Audio CD)
Had read some reviews before I bought it. It lives up to my expectations: Strong voice, fine songs, good stories. It might tempt me to go back to her earlier records.

Have it on vinyl and bought it for the additional songs. One of her very best records. Top class.

Don't buy this. It should have been the original recordings.


A Postcard from California

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommendable, 19 Jun. 2013
This is a much better record than I thought it would be after having read the reviews.

First: I bought the cd version, which gives you a lot of information on every track. In addition there is a map of California which goes well with the songs.

Like a lot of other reviewers I could do without more versions of Beach Boys songs: California Feelin', California Saga, Help Me Ronda and Honkin' Down The Highway. But these version - like most of the other songs - have such a loose feel, almost country like, so actually I'm glad to hear these versions.

And it is quite interesting to hear Neil Young sing lead on one of the verses of California Saga as well as it is to hear the ending of Honkin' Down The Highway - no fade but a chorus ending as if it was performed on stage.

After the first 17 seconds of San Simeon you think you're gonna listen to Don't Worry, Baby, but then you get another very relaxed song with the guys of America on background vocals.

Oh yes, as many have noticed, Don't Fight The sea could as well have been a Beach Boys song, as Al, Carl, Brian, Mike and Bruce all take part.

There's also an acoustic version of California Dreamin' with Al, Glen Campbell and David Crosby on vocals. Not a bad version, but to me The Mamas and Papas' version will always be number one.

But all in all a very enjoyable album which I have been waiting for the cd version of. Highly recommendable - also because Al's voice has all the power from the sixties. But we all heard that on the BB tour last year, didn't we?

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't meet my expectations, 16 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I usually like the way James Taylor sings, but this record is just too much on the jazzy side of the road for my taste.

Even the duets - with Chris Botti, Natalie Cole and Toots Theilemans - don't seem to work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Magic moments from the West Coast, 3 Jan. 2012
This review is from: The Singles+ (Audio CD)
If you're not a completist and want all that this golden group recorded in 3 years time, this is a pretty fine collection.
In addition to all their well known hits - California Dreamin', Monday Monday, Dream A Little Dream Of Me, Go Where You Wanna Go etc. - you get a string of songs from the solo records of John Phillips, Michelle Phillips and Mama Cass. The latter is represented with no less than 12 songs - fair enough when you think of her fantastic voice.
Put on this record on a grey winter's day and in seconds your mind will be transported to sunny California...

3.0 out of 5 stars A true christmas present, 2 Jan. 2012
I bought this one for Mickey's Christmas Carol only as I was unable to play my video version of this classic. Great to see it again - and as a bonus there is another classic, Pluto's Christmas Tree (1952). The rest is uninteresting, but maybe your children will like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A landmark, 6 Nov. 2011
This album is a landmark - fantastic songs, two strong voices and a superb production. The bonus live cd - though released a couple of years ago as a single cd - is worth the price alone for the version of Bridge Over troubled Water. When Garfunkel introduces the song, nobody reacts because the record had not yet been released - when the last note is sung, listen to what sounds like a standing ovation. It makes my hairs stand up...
