5.0 out of 5 stars CHEAPER VERSION - EXCELLENT, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reputation & Rarities (Audio CD)
Of the two versions of this CD on Amazon, I purchased the cheaper one - It has exactly the same tracks on as the more expensive version, the music production is excellent, the only probable difference maybe, are the sleeve notes - on the cheaper version, there is only the track listing, and no info - but its the music you buy a CD for isn't it ? - and this is Dusty during the years, when I preferred her music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, 22 May 2014

It does exactly what it says on the box - once you get the hang of it - Colour copies occasionally come out slightly less colour sharp, but overall, the scanner is excellent for everyday use.

This review is from: Beyond The Flames (Kindle Edition)
As a firefighter in Sheffield around the same time as the author, I found this book an excellent read. To joe public, who know nothing about the Fire Service, and think we sit around playing cards and snooker all day, I think it would be an informative read. It's a bit of a niche subject firefighting, and I guess it's of more interest to ex-firefighters, and those in the Service now. Trying to describe Hook ladder drill, a 50ft wheeled escape, and the workings of the old oxygen proto breathing apparatus to a reader who has never seen one, is awkward - similarly with all the other equipment we carried. Drill, Fire service terminology, including slang terms, routines and even ranks in the Fire Service are lost to the non-knowledgable reader. However that said, Well done Pikey, a very interesting and nostalgic book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good music - but not exactly mixed, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are many compilation CDs which claim to be a " mix ", or " in the mix ", but are really a load of tracks recorded one after another, without much thought of actually creating a running mix i.e. with similar B.P.M.s - this is one of them - Don't get me wrong, the tracks are good, but it should really have just been titled " nonstop Northern " - If you are a Deejay, you could probably do a better job of mixing Northern Soul tracks yourself, but if you just want to bang some nonstop Northern tracks on as background dance music, this is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you want pure untouched Odyssey this is the one, 31 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Pure Odyssey ~ Out of 17 tracks, there are 5 x top ten hits, 1 x top 40, and one which was just outside the top 40 ~ the other tracks are okay but I would grade some of them as " B " sides, - but all in all a great album if you are an Odyssey fan, and worth it just for the full length " Native New Yorker ", " Inside Out ", and " If You're looking for a Way Out "

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent crossover between Motown & pure Northern Soul, 31 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Motown Floorshakers (Audio CD)
Some of these tracks were commercial chart hits for Motown, others are a little rarer, - so an excellent crossover, and worth it just for the original Brenda Holloway's "Think it Over ( Reconsider ) "

2.0 out of 5 stars THERE ARE MIXES & MIXES!, 14 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately there is no image available on Amazon, but if this is the Trevor Nelson remixes ( which luckily I got for a bargain price ) then it's a let down ~ A bit confusing as the title on Amazon states " Remixes " - but as far as I am aware the tracks are not actual remixes but mixed ( It states on the CD insert " Mixed by Trevor Nelson " ). ~ Now Trevor's a great guy, and he knows his music, but mixing tracks?? - no no! ~ If you expect a smooth running Disco Mix Club type effort, it certainly ain't,( although it works on a few tracks )- BPM's are all wrong, horrible chop mixes, and variable sound levels ~ but let's not put all the blame on Trevor - after all what do you expect from Telstar!!
