Some brilliant guitar work & great singing. This is intelligent prog, which I liked very much. Mostly Autumn can be an acquired taste but their sound world is wonderful and keeps growing on me.

Although I have most of the pieces played by other violinists it is often nice to hear other performers. This is no exception and is very good indeed. Thoroughly enjoyed the music and the playing,

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 31 May 2014

This is an excellent set of tracks from the most important phase in Trower's rock career. I remember seeing Trower at Reading Rock Festival in 1975. Brilliant as is this set especially at this price and with the great vocals of James Dewar. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not as good as A Tale Untold, 31 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great set at a great price. It is not as good as A Tale Untold. Much prefer the James Dewar tracks. Nothing wrong with Jack Bruce but Dewar's voice just works better with Trower tracks. Trower's guitar shines through though.

This is a very good buy for someone that just wants to dip their toes in the blues. It has a good range of important blues artists.

This is a worthy selection of a variety of new or old at a good price. Whilst I prefer prog from the 70s it is always interesting to hear more recent stuff


Dreamland: The Very Best of Joni Mitchell
Dreamland: The Very Best of Joni Mitchell
Price: 7.13

5.0 out of 5 stars What a voice, 18 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great voice, great songs. Joni Mitchell is one of the best singer song writers of the 20th & 21st centuries. This certainly whetted my appetite for more. I particularly like the later versions of songs, with a more mature woman looking back, singing in a lower key - very poignant. This is wonderful stuff. You can quibble over the selection of songs but one cd is not sufficient for all the wonderful songs written and performed by Joni.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 18 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
19.99 for 50 cds! Good performances by some great performers with good sound. This is a fantastic selection of well chosen highlights with many welcome surprises. I particularly liked the Massenet but not sure about the Debussy (from a musical rather than a performance point of view). I haven't got to the Wagner yet but we shall see - I have usually found him hard work. There was a slight tear in the box, which might explain the low price. I suspect the price has has gone up again but this collection will be good purchase for all but the most ardent of opera lovers who may prefer complete operas.
