In A Silent Way

5.0 out of 5 stars SPACEY FASCINATING MUSIC, 28 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In A Silent Way (Audio CD)
THIS FOR ME I FIND MORE REWARDING THAN BITCHES BREW
IT HAS A MORE SPACEY AMBIENT FEEL TO IT EVEN THOUGH IT FEATURES ONLY 2 TRACKS
JOHN MCLAUGHLINS GUITAR WORK STANDS OUT I ALSO PREFER THE STRIPPED DOWN INSTRUMENTATION WHERE AS BITCHES BREW HAS A FAR MORE DENSE SOUND. WORTH PURCHASING.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD COMPREHENSIVE TOM JONES COLLECTION, 28 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THIS SET HAS ALL THE MAJOR TOM JONES SONGS . NOT SURE IF THEY HAVE BEEN RERECORDED
EVEN SO I STILL ENJOYED IT ALL THE SAME. AS IT SHOWS OFF HIS VERSATILITY WELL.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD COLLECTION, 28 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Back To The Story (Audio CD)
THIS DOUBLE CD COVERS ALL OF THE IDLE RACE OUTPUT
I ENJOYED THE MAJORITY OF THE TRACKS. A STRONG BEATLES INFLUENCE
RUNS THROUGH MANY OF THE SONGS AND THIS I FOUND LETS THE SET DOWN IN PLACES.
THE FINAL ALBUM HAS NO JEFF LYNNE BUT I STILL FOUND IT REWARDING
MY TWO FAVOURITE SONGS ARE SKELTON AND THE ROUNDABOUT AND HURRY UP JOHN [GREAT GUITAR RIFF] ALL IN ALL WORTH LOOKING IN TO.

This review is from: Avocet (Audio CD)
I WISH BERT HAD DONE MORE INSTRUMENTAL ALBUMS LIKE THIS. THE LONG TITLE TRACK AVOCET FLOWS ALONG BEAUTIFULLY, COMPRISING VARIOUS TEMPO CHANGES. LOVELY USE OF FLUTE. NICE ALSO TO HEAR BERT PLAY PIANO . HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

4.0 out of 5 stars AN UNUSUAL MIX OF STYLES, 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Psychedelic Jazz (Audio CD)
I LISTENED TO SOME OF THIS ON LINE BEFORE I BOUGHT IT ,AND FOUND IT
VERY INTERESTING . SOME TRACKS DO SOUND DATED AND VERY MUCH OF THE PERIOD
BUT EVEN SO THEIR IS ENOUGH GOOD MUSIC ON OFFER HERE FOR IT TO BE WORTHWHILE
IF YOUR LOOKING FOR REGULAR STANDARD MODERN JAZZ THEN THIS ISNT FOR YOU
BUT IF YOU WANT SOMETHING ODD AND DIFFERENT THEN THIS WONT DISSAPOINT.
I REALLY LIKED THE 2 GABOR SZABO TRACKS.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE DARK SIDE OF JAZZ AND BLUES, 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
ALL IN ALL THIS IS A VERY ENJOYABLE SET, WITH ITS MIX OF FILM THEMES JAZZ AND RYTHEM
AND BLUES THE ART WORK ITSELF WITH ITS CHEESY AMBIENCE ADDS AN EXTRA BONUS.THIS SET FOLLOWS ON FROM THE JAZZ NOIRE RELEASE ON THIS LABEL .SOME TRACKS STAND OUT MORE THAN OTHERS. MAYBE IF IT HAD BEEN A SINGLE CD IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN BETTER
BUT STILL IT IS A GOOD PURCHASE.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT MUSIC GREAT PRODUCTION A CULT CLASSIC, 14 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THIS IS SO GOOD, FULL OF HUMOUR TERRIFIC SONGS AND A BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE FROM STEVE MARTIN AS A DEMENTED DENTIST . IT IS DIFFICULT TO TO KNOW WHAT TO SAY OR WHAT TO LEAVE OUT.
I DO KNOW ONE OF THE PEOPLE THAT WORKED ON THIS FILM JOHN BLAKELY
WHO WAS INVOLVED WITH THE WORKINGS/DESIGN OF AUDREY THE PLANT. WELL WORTH GETTING.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY WELL PRESENTED VIEW OF PARIS, 14 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THIS IS A GREAT COLLECTION OF BROADCASTS ON PARIS. SANDRINE VOILLET IS A CHARMING PRESENTER AND GETS YOU INTERESTED IN THE FRENCH CAPITAL LETTING YOU INTO MANY FACTS NOT SO WELL KNOWN . THE FRENCH CINEMA SECTION IS QUITE HUMOROUS WHERE SANDRINE
GOES ABOUT RECREATING A FRENCH NEW WAVE FILM. A VERY ENJOYABLE PRODUCTION.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE MARTY ROBBINS SET, 14 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I GOT INTRODUCED TO MARTY ROBBINS THROUGH A FRIEND WHO HAD THIS PLAYING ON HIS CD PLAYER AT WORK. I WAS REALLY AMAZED BY THE DIVERSITY OF THIS 2 CD SET FROM ROCKABILLY, SOME BLUES, COUNTRY WEEPIES AND EVEN SOME BIG BAND SWING . FOR THAT ALONE IM GLAD I
PURCHASED THIS, AND AT A VERY GOOD SECONDHAND PRICE .RECOMMENDED.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL YOU WANT FROM MR.C, 14 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Person 1925-1955 (Audio CD)
I MUST ADMIT BEFORE I START I HAVENT GOT ROUND TO FULLY LISTEN TO THIS YET
THE BOOKLET THAT GOES WITH THIS GIVES YOU A HIGHLY DETAILED ACCOUNT OF HOAGY CARMICHAELS LIFE. THERE IS SUCH A VARIED AMMOUNT OF MUSIC OFFERED ON THESE CDS
YOU CANT GO WRONG. AVID HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB HERE. ALL CDS ARE IN DATE SEQUENCE,
FINISHING OFF WITH SOME PRIVATE ACETATES. IF YOU WANT ONE REPRESENTITIVE SET
OF HOAGYS GET THIS ONE ,THOUGH SOME OF THE TRANSFERS HAVE A CERTAIN AMMOUNT OF HISS.
STILL A GREAT COLLECTION
