5.0 out of 5 stars great playing / great compositions / great production, 10 Nov. 2014

great playing / great compositions / great production. What more do you want? Proves there is a lot more to Collins drumming than In the Air Tonight. Percy Jones is a star on fretless bass, and John Goodsall rips it up on guitar. Not for the faint hearted...

Curiously old-sounding despite technology available today. Riffs sound a bit re-hashed and tired. All in all a bit of a disappointment but it was always going to be hard to live up to the hype I suppose. £70 for a gig ticket? No thanks...

2.0 out of 5 stars not great quality, 14 Aug. 2011
Although this is a beginner's sax, the quality is not great and after discovering a fault with keys it had to be returned

Great series - very funny and Richard Wilson steals the show. Captures the dark humour of West of Scotland and the tragi-comedy of playing in bands in dives around the country.

5.0 out of 5 stars where it all started, 12 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Blues (Audio CD)
Never underestimate the influence of Hendrix. I have been listening to him for over 30 years and only on this album do you get a better idea of what a good blues player he was. Although he is remembered by most for the singles, his influence on generations of musicians is undeniable. This is Hendrix stripped back with minimal production (but obviously with a bit of remixing). For its time the guitar sounds are incredible.

5.0 out of 5 stars All becomes clearer, 12 Sept. 2008
A great book with very insightful writing. If you have been struggling to get over a learning plateau in home recording this definitely helps. I have been using Logic Pro for 3 years and this book definitely helped. The guest sections in the book make very good reading too and it is not written in too 'techy' a manner.

4.0 out of 5 stars fantastic musicians, 12 Sept. 2008
This review is from: The Anthology (Audio CD)
unlike some remixes this has been done very well. I played Romantic Warrior to death when first out on vinyl but it has been given a fresh lease of life with this release. If you liked RTF first time round do yourself a favour and get this.

4.0 out of 5 stars great singer and guitarist, 12 Sept. 2008

Fantastic DVD. I did not realise what a great guitarist this guy is. The concert format is unusual and works! First up solo acoustic set, then a blues trio and lastly with his full band. Highly recommended - he should be more famous in the UK

3.0 out of 5 stars Could do better, 26 July 2005
This review is from: Willy Porter (Audio CD)
I saw this guy support Tori Amos about 7 years ago and he blew her away. He is incredible live, but with the exception of a few songs on previous studio albums he has not really captured that yet. Sadly, this album follows the trend, with again a few exceptions. However there are a few more successes than usual. His live album 'High Wire Live' is closer to the mark but something still missing - DVD possibly? Please? Don't get me wrong, this guy has so much talent and writes fantastic songs and can REALLY play the acoustic guitar BUT he has not made the killer album - YET! This album and the live album followed by 'Dog-eared dream' are the best of the bunch. But whadda I know...
