5.0 out of 5 stars Glam overdose, 17 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some oddities, some surprises, some standard stuff that you will have a million times already - but together with the nice booklet this, makes a great collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some more Moroder for your addiction, 17 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ooh La La (Audio CD)
Not prime stuff but nice to have some additional electronic / female vocal Moroder to add to the collection - seek out the remixes that are around on the web too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charges batteries - doesn't cost much. Simple as that., 25 Oct. 2013

Nice touch that you get an in-car charger attachment as the price is super cheap and so far it seems to be doing its job just fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just about the only way to get the whole Hylda story, 1 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I rediscovered Hylda with the DVD reissues of her 60s and 70s TV shows which I knew from my youth, I wanted to know more about her amazing story. This book, long out of print, is pretty much the only way. It is now a quite pricey collectors item - but worth the money if you can get it at the lower end of its range.

One 'warning', Jean Ferguson who did the incredible research to put this together and deserves a medal, is an actress, not a professional writer. This has the advantages that she obviously knows about backstage customs and can emphathise with Hylda - but means there is some repetition ("Hylda was often viewed as difficult to work with but given her past that's understandable" - yeah, I got that the first time) and whole events and TV series, shows etc are glossed over with little more than a single anecdote.

BUT - the stories about the monkeys locked in the dressing room eating the multi-coloured stage make-up (you can figure out the results) and the one about Hylda being wheelchaired down the pier so she can do 4 shows a night to cover for a sick performer make up for any shortcomings, surely?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastico!, 7 Sept. 2011
This review is from: ¡Chicas! (Audio CD)
Does what it says on the tin - fantastically bonkers and dated girly sounds - some in 'barely' English. Wicked!
More Chicas please!

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a disappointment, 7 Sept. 2011
Turned out to be a reproduction and took about 6 weeks to be delivered. Still getting such a 'rare' poster at all is a good thing.
