Running Recon: A Photo Journey with SOG Special Ops Along the Ho Chi Minh Trail
Running Recon: A Photo Journey with SOG Special Ops Along the Ho Chi Minh Trail
by Frank Greco
Edition: Paperback
Price: £32.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb photo history of the sog black ops, 14 Feb. 2008
I have the hardback edition of this superb book and it really is a fitting tribute to the incredible bravery of the sog men who operated in enemy territory including cambodia and laos,where of course they were not supposed to be.most of these photos(and there are lots)come from the personal collections of the recon men themselves.frank greco/john plaster also have published other books that are well woth buying if this is a subject you are interested in.without doubt worth 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars not wayne and ford"s best but still excellent, 1 Feb. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The previous reviewer is being very unfair to this film.(sure it"s not as good as the searchers or the cavalry trilogy)but how many westerns are?. the film is based on a true event fom the spring of 1863 when a unit of union cavalry was sent behind confederate lines to destroy a vital rail depot.wayne and holden"s characters clash along the way while constance towers overhears the plan so has to be taken captive.the film is very enjoyable for western buffs,and how about ford"s cheyenne autumn starring richard widmark finally coming out on region 2 dvd?.

5.0 out of 5 stars chester goulds classic strip gets the treatment it deserves, 5 July 2007
At last chester gould"s seminal work is being given the treatment it so richly deserves.i first came across dick tracy reprints in my local comic shop about 20 years ago,and i was immediatly struck by how different it was to the other comics i usually bought from dc and marvel like jla green lantern xmen spiderman captain america etc.dick tracy is of course gould"s reaction to the ganster violence of early thirties chicago.he was also way ahead of his time in having tracy use forensic science and advanced gadgets like the 2 way wrist radio.the strip is most probably memorable for the villains who are very often grotesquely drawn.i am really looking forward to the intro of characters like,the insane selbert depool,pruneface the nazi spy,flattop jones,the blank etc.gould"s pen work is a joy for the comic fan ,the detail in each panel superb,the strip is really like the comic equivalant of a film noir with the violence being surprising for a thirties comic strip.this is to be a multi year project of i think 24 books,the books themselves are superb hardbacks in dustjackets and i think worth every penny.in fact that reminds me i"ll need to get another bookcase to put them in.

4.0 out of 5 stars NY dolls trash and treasure box set, 16 May 2006
a large amount of this box set has appeared in various guises before.bootleg or otherwise.the dallas and detroit material both appeared on vinyl boots years ago but make their first legit appearance"s here in slightly better quality.the my fathers place gig is a radio broadcast but is almost definatly not taken from the original master,sounding more like it was taped from the radio.the little hippodrome show which takes up most of disc three was released a long time ago as the lp red patent leather.but the gem here is a superb soundboard of the band at the commodore ballroom in vancouver which is disc two tracks 5 to 13.this shows the band in great form,the packaging is trashy which fits the band just perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars big country at their best, 17 Jan. 2005
This review is from: The Radio One Sessions (Audio CD)
for anyone who is a fan of the band this is an essential purchase.most of the tracks are superb versions of tracks from the classic the crossing lp,in particular the versions of inwards and 1000 stars are brilliant,the non lp track angle park is also excellent with the track heart and soul being the only weak moment.all in all an excellent cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars josef k live in edinburgh,but only for serious fans., 11 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Live At Valentinos (Audio CD)
this cd contains two sets of legendary edinburgh band josef k recorded live from the audience at valentino"s in 1981.for a serious fan of the band like me this is a must have disc but for anyone new to the band,the bootleg sound quality means they would probably find it tough listening.but once again great stuff for the hardcore fan.
