1.0 out of 5 stars Badly Flawed design, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've no doubt the lock and chain are secure but the links are so difficult to align in the narrow gap in the padlock that it makes locking it almost impossible. Totally useless!

This book is a real labour of love by a real master of the 5 string banjo. A must have for anyone interested in playing Fiddle tunes in scruggs style on the banjo. There are multiple versions of tunes along with interesting notes on each tune. Add to basket!

5.0 out of 5 stars Joy!, 25 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book as a gift for my Mum and i've struggled to get her away from the Piano since her birthday. This book is a delight. Full of beautiful pieces often with just the title 'Excercise'. Music so sublime that i'm considering taking up the piano myself. If your after a fun accessible, way into Oscar Petersons music don't hesitate!

2.0 out of 5 stars put-downable, 20 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I took the plunge with this book having read the glowing reviews. But i'm afraid i couldn't get past the first 20 pages; the mixture of comedy, steam-punk, romance and Vampires just left me cold. It's a well written, confident book but for me it's trying a little to hard and i find the style of writing too 'smug'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite!, 5 Sep 2010
To try to analyse a book this good is missing the point.
If your fascinated by the Billy the Kid myth just pour yourself a bourbon and enjoy this magical prose poem.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of my most played Dylan albums!, 17 Jun 2003
This review is from: Saved (Audio CD)
Believe it or not this is the album I often reach for while many of the Dylan 'classics' gather dust on the shelves. I got all the other Dylan albums before this one because of the bad reviews. Don't make the same mistake. Even though Dylan has since re-thought his views on christianity this album is a very worthwhile purchase and an important stop on Dylans journey.
'Saved' has a rather special quality that seems to be absent in a lot of music today: passion. Imagine the power of Dylan's songwriting and delivery behind a real 'message', backed by superb gospel vocals and you have 'Saved'. This is an intense and passionate recording by a man who truly believes in what he is singing. I challenge anyone with an ounce of sensitivity not to be moved by 'covenant woman' , 'pressing on' or 'in the garden'. Saved is, in my opinion, a far more worthwhile purchase than many of Dylans 80's albums .
Do make sure you get the wonderful 'Slow Train Coming' first though!
