5.0 out of 5 stars One Amazing Lady, 4 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Suspended Animation (Audio CD)
Evie Sands is one Amazing lady. We tended to miss out on her early years , this was not unusal in the 1960's with so much going on either side of the Atlantic. Like other great singers like Timi Yuro the cream eventually comes to the top. This is a stunning album and there is almost a need to be alone in the house whilst you take in the Music. The problem is that you hope that the family are out for at least 3 hours because you will play it again and again. Go Evie girl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Investigative, Dramatic, Sensitive, Wilson's amazing career, 1 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This amazing man who had an unrepeated skill of balancing both wings of The Labour Party during some very difficult times. Whilst he didn't get everything right he did acheive some remarkable successes . The book touches on all aspects of the subjects life. Harold contested five General Elections and won four of them. Despite having some enemies within he was never seriously challenged on his leadership and when he did call time and resigned in 1976 there were many stunned colleagues . A great read by a thorough journalist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diamond Dusty, 28 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Very Fine Love (Audio CD)
The one thing you can guarantee with any Dusty Springfield album is the quality. Dusty was a perfectionist and although her best days had gone by the time this was released it is still worth five stars for the artist alone. This may not be her finest album but it does grow on you with every play. If you consider how long it was before Dusty In Memphis became acclaimed as one of the all time albums others may follow in future years. Well worth indulging in any of Dusty's Albums and this is no exception.

5.0 out of 5 stars PJ is a living Legend., 28 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mr James Marcus Smith who had a name change in the 1960's and became a Legend in that period as the highly rated PJ Proby . It was two adversaries who happened to be in the audience in one of his UK Shows namely Lord Longford and the Formidable Mary Whitehouse who were scathing in their criticism as his tight trousers split, quite by accident. However the bad press these individuals gave him ensured that he had amazing publicity in the days before Max Clifford. This only increased his popularity. This collection of two albums from those early days tells you he had talent without the extra publicity. If you have ever seen him live you realise that he is one of the few voices ever that could cover an Elvis Presley song to a great level. This is a really worthwhile collection for any fan of Sixties music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational Album, 26 April 2012

This review is from: The First Cut (Audio CD)
I have listened to this over and over again and am unable to find anything negative to say about this CD. Every single track is a gem including her covers.Her best known songs are on here as well but there is so much more than just the excellent First Cut is the Deepest and equally good Angel Of The Morning. Everybody who has reviewed this has the same opinion and it is great value. I would order this immediately and you will never regret it. Fantastic CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Anthology, 26 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brunswick Anthology (Audio CD)
Barbara Acklin was a very underated artist but on this collection she has some excellent songs As all the other Customers have reviewed it is well worth a listen. There are Duets on here as well. Also while she was at Brunswick she collaborated with stable mate Eugene Record to provide many hits for his Group The Chi-lites , including the big one " Have You Seen Her " so she also goes down as an excellent songwriteras well as a solid performer. Well worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Music !, 18 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rhythm of the Rain (Audio CD)
In 1963 almost a decade in itself with J F Kennedy's Assassination, the Profumo Affair and of Course the infectious surge of Beatlemania leading to MerseyBeat where all things musical appeared to come from Liverpool. The Cascades though released a single " Rhythm Of The Rain" which was so different to all the other sounds. This song has stood the test of time, and is a regular on all the Oldies Radio Stations and is never out of place. Since 1963 when that came out I have only ever heard snippets from The Cascades but always liked their Harmonies which would become a fore-runner for groups like The Association and The Young Rascals and The Turtles. I bought this album on the strength of Rhythm of the rain and I wasn't disappointed. I can recommend this album highly and I don't think that thee is a bad track on it. Superb collection and I am considering looking for more material from this band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Jersey Boys, 4 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just getting in ahead of the Beach Boys were the Four Seasons and they offered such tremendous harmony. Sherry set them on their way but at no point did they lose any consistency . Its great to listen to some of the tracks never played on radio nowadays. The list is endless here and as the other reviewers have already pointed out you will keep listening to this and join in with the songs. Classic 60`s & 70`s at its very best and good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars A STARTING POINT FOR SCOTT WALKER, 4 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Remember those days from around 1964 when football fans clapped their hands to the sound of The Routers Lets go. Although instead of chanting lets go they would add their teams name such as City or Villa or whover your team name was. In the Routers was a young Bass player called Scott Engel who later in the decade went on to great acclaim as one third of the Walker Brothers with John Maus and Gary Leeds. This is an integral part of any 1960`s collection who recall this early disco offering and other like tracks. Not the greatest album but possibly of great interest to Walker Brothers fans who could compare Scotts early development as a musician

5.0 out of 5 stars GOLD IS THE WORD!, 29 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gold (Audio CD)
It is impossible to add to the other reviewers comments. The man is a genius. Bob Dylan called him America`s only living poet, which coming from Dylan is construed as superior praise because it dont come cheap from Bob. The current debate on Amazon to find out the greatest soul singer of all time [ An impossible task if you ask me] has many stars in the mix such as Levi, Jackie, Marvin, Aretha etc but Smokey must be up there as well. This offering is a good overview and includes some of his & The Miracles early work. Worth indulging in. Great value.
