5.0 out of 5 stars A book that does Mr Struth justice, 11 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mr Struth: The Boss (Hardcover)
This book is well written and well researched. It examines not only the professional life of Mr Struth but the private life of the man and deals with many of the issues raised by the detailed research. Mr Struth was not only beloved by the Rangers support but won the respect of his contemporaries at Celtic. This book does Mr Struth justice and merits his legendary status. Highly recommended

1.0 out of 5 stars A shocker, 11 Oct. 2013
There is no question that Bill Struth was a legend who made Rangers a powerhouse in Scottish Football. A book about this man has been long overdue. However this poorly written book is an affront to his memory. Factually questionable, I would direct potential leaders to an alternative book officially backed by the club. The difference between the books is chalk and cheese.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great box set but some patchy content, 6 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is no doubt ing the value of the box set. Nilsson's RCA catalogue in its entirety plus plenty of rarities for the completist. I have no problem with the quality with the packaging and the informative booklet but I think most listeners and even devoted fans have to admit that the quality of the albums start to diminish alarmingly after the peak of Nilsson Schmilsson. Once Harry dispenses with Producer Richard Perry the albums start to be not so easy on the ear. Harry's fantastic voice is also deteriorating fast due to alcohol and drug abuse, which make some tracks on Pussycats painful listening. It is no surprise that his albums at this time were very much short in quantity and quality and his audience had deserted him. Not much on these albums to justify the genius tag here methinks
Notwithstanding, a comprehensive collection of Harry's RCA catalogue and well worth the money

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Music at Bargain Price, 2 Oct. 2013

Emmylou Harris is a legend. This is her second batch of albums in this series. If you are interested in this one, you probably have the first one. The albums included are Roses In the Snow, Cimarron, White Shoes, Evangeline and Thirteen. While the quality of some of the songs are not as high as the earlier albums the music is still of a high standard and therefore worth the money.

The only downside is the packaging. There is no booklet and the printing on the sleeves is impossible to read unless you have a very powerful magnifying glass.

4.0 out of 5 stars Before they were famous, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Beatles with Pete Best go through their early repertoire in order to try and impress Dick Rowe at Deccan. Dick said no and lived to regret the decision for ever more. When you here this disc maybe you can understand why. There are no raucous performances for which the Beatles were renowned in Hamburg. Instead they performed a pretty tame set including the comical Sheik of Araby. It is also interesting to note the number of lead vocals performed by George.
The disc is worth hearing and the quality of the product is excellent.

Bobby Whitlock usually a sideman to the good and the great finally gets to step out of the shadows and show his talents. A first rate collection covering his earliest solo works . Well worth a listen

1.0 out of 5 stars Be cautious, 5 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Love Me Do 12" [VINYL] (Vinyl)
The early Beatles material is out of copyright. Like bob Dylan, anything recorded by the Beatles prior to 1963 is currently fair game for anyone who chooses to release this stuff . Apple have no say in this matter.and as time rolls on more and more of these"limited editions" will be coming out. Frankly, this Love Me Do on coloured vinyl . The packaging is shoddy and I can't see anything special that would make this collectible. If they start fetching big money in the future,somebody will churn more out. But if you have enough cash and need to own this unofficial material, then good luck . You will need plenty of dough as more of this third rate stuff hits the market. At least some of the Dylan material has never been released so has a bit more historical value

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Harry Nilsson compilation, 22 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Essential Harry Nilsson (Audio CD)
The late Harry Nilsson was blessed with one of the best singing voices you were ever likely to hear. Alas he indulged in a lifestyle that damaged his career and ended his life prematurely. Over the years his record company has issued countless compilations. This one is not so different from others and would be a good place to start for those new to Harry Nilsson. The five stars are for the content. Boy could he sing
