5.0 out of 5 stars GOD is good!, 11 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of those inspirational books for budding artists or those that just love seeing what a variety of images can be created by different artists drawing from life. It's fascinating to see so many excellent artists represented in one place, seeing their varied styles, and interesting to read their approach to drawing summarised in a pithy sentence or two. Not a sniff of an installation....

5.0 out of 5 stars Zola Panel, 11 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Zola had somehow been missed from my teenage devouring of classic literature with the result that I now have the pleasure of delving into his work with a more mature perspective. It's powerful stuff, beautifully written in succinct prose. The Delphi compilations are unbelievably good, both in terms of their astonishing value but more importantly in the way they collate lesser known works, essays and biographical works etc in one desert island companion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic songwriting, 24 July 2013
For fans of melodic, lovingly crafted songs that exist independently of any musical trend, other than the category labelled "timeless", this is a must have download.

4.0 out of 5 stars The music speaks for itself, 1 Dec 2009
This review is from: Original Album Classics (Audio CD)
Anyone reading the two reviews previously posted readers might be forgiven for not realisng that they could get hold of five albums by one of the best songwriters this country has produced at a bargain price. The series of "Original Classic Albums" is clearly not an attempt to put all the best selling albums by each artist together but to provide a range of music by each, mixing a little rough with the smooth (or the less familiar with the familiar).

Those who are fans of the mighty Prefab Sprout will probably have all these albums anyway and are fully aware of the genius of Paddy McAloon. For those who may have only heard the odd single etc and would like to explore further this is a good way to very cheaply obtain five excellent albums of well constructed songs full of clever lyrics, sumptuous melodies and lush, but not overdone, arrangements. You can argue about which albums should have been included - the only proper collection would have them all of course - but for a budget introduction to some of the best music made this cannot be faulted. Only a complete Scrooge would carp about this collection. Never mind that it's not perfect, it's not meant to be! Forget the packaging, listen to the music.
