5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation, exceptional value for money, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always felt Y&T were an underrated band. They made some great heavy rock albums in the early 80s, but never gained the fame of other bands at the time. This compilation is fantastic value for money. £12.99 (at the time of writing) gets you 6 full albums (Earth Shaker, Black Tiger, Mean Streak, In Rock We Trust, Down for the Count, and Open Fire - Live) plus a selection of live tracks from Donnington and Reading festivals.
The first three studio albums are the strongest (and heaviest), the sound got increasingly commercial after that, and the official live album (Open Fire) really shows how good they were as a live act (apart from the awful "Summertime Girls" studio track that's included and out of place on a live album).

You get 68 tracks here all told, and okay maybe not every single one is a winner, but there's more than enough to make this a worthwhile purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good !, 10 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Winter Songs (Audio CD)
As Harry Hill might put it:
" I like Rob Halford, and I like Christmas Carols.
But which one is best ?
There's only one way to find out...
... FIGHT !!!"

I felt buying this album was a bit of a gamble : it could have turned out to be a load of cheesy trash. But I have to tell you, it is not. It really is surprisingly good. There's a mix of Christmas carols played in a surprisingly heavy style, and new songs in a variety of styles - some heavy and some ballards. However, this album will not be to everyone's taste - if you're not used to religious lyrics with your metal then this might not be your cup of tea.

Well done to Rob Halford firstly for having the nerve to do a Christmas album. And it has to be 5 stars for getting away with it.
Go on, give it a try. You'll never see anything like this again.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent recipe book, 10 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jamie's America (Hardcover)
I enjoyed the TV series very much and bought this book on the strength of it. It's full of recipes - a lot of which never made it onto the TV show. This is proper down-to-earth cooking - no fancy posh restaurant stuff ! Lots of supporting photos too. There's no other text - don't expect any "travelogue" stories from the show.
