1.0 out of 5 stars So Dreary, 8 Sep 2008
At first listening it seems that Rea has extended the same dreary song over two cds, a bit like Dire Straights at their very worst used to do. The third cd sounds like Shadows B sides and as such is the only vindication of the excellent but largely deceptive title and packaging. He's not a great songwriter or any good as a singer. In fact he's bad at it and is only allowed a recording contract because of his guitar playing. I haven't played the vinyl yet. I'm not sure I want to bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five minutes to kick off lads. Take your false teeth out., 15 Nov 2006
This review is from: Free Cinema [VHS] (VHS Tape)
West Bromwich in the 60s was like the rest of the country in the 30s. The shots of the players training, getting in their minis and drinking tea afterwards in the cafe are a bit of a shock to anyone reared on today's celebrity footballer cult.

Bobby Robson collects money for something. Derek Kevan takes his teeth out. Stuart Williams finds a job. Chippy Clarke walks his wippet over the tocky bonks and Alec Jackson is finding fame difficult to handle in his Tipton snooker club.

Lovely stuff. Wonder what happened to Bobby Robson?

5.0 out of 5 stars Those were the days., 22 Sep 2006
This is from another time. Everything about it is dated except for the quality of the football which is so silky you just know that the West Brom side from 1978 could survive in today's Premiership, which is more than the side from 2006 could do. The game, played out on a frost hard pitch amid snow flurries produced some of the best goals ever seen. Among the visual and auditory clues that tell you this all but 30 years distant are the lack of grass, the too short shorts, the permed hair styles and the racist chanting from the Manchester United fans who had still to adjust to the presence of black players at the top level of English football. If you're a West Brom fan, or just a lover of the game as it should be played, you'll love it. If you're a Man U fan, you'll still love it, just turn the sound down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel good blues, 25 Jan 2001
This review is from: Boomer's Story (Audio CD)
One of his earlier albums when he was still the folk/blues name to drop, this is an early Cooder dip into the rich American cultural archive that would keep him going for years to come. Play it late at night with friends and some good Scotch and sing 'bury my body by the railroad, so I can watch the trains go by', then get your air guitar out and try to keep up with Ry's fingering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wierd Old America, 24 Jan 2001
If you thought that Bob Dylan's sound was new way back in the early 60's (as I did) then think again. That sound goes back much further to an even wierder time. Harry Smith pretty much bootlegged this cross section of American music ranging from blues through jug and gospel to early Dylan style harmonica howls from recordings on obscure labels, which begs the question, how did this very strange music attract a commercial audience in the USA of the 20's and thirties? The roots of all modern music are here and this stuff certainly did influence a generation or two or three. It's a good game spotting who subsequently ripped off what. To own it is to love it. Peg and Awl defies description, but Smith has a go at it, as he does all of these tunes with wonderfully concise tongue in cheek summaries.
