5.0 out of 5 stars OLD , NEW , ALL QUALITY, 4 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: All Live (Audio CD)
Unfortunately I have never seen Gordon Lightfoot Live not sure when he last made the trip to Britain. We have missed out because he has a songbook that is timeless. This album includes tracks recorded over a 3 year period at the turn of the milenium and covers songs form all his career up to his most recent release at that time.
His voice has changed over time but that is no bad thing as it brings a fresh sound to some of the older songs, the band sound fantastic: great musicians. When I read "the recordings have not been technically altered and are all authentic lives mixes" I am in awe of just how good Gordon and his band sounds, as some supposed live albums are massively overdubbed. Just makes me sad to think he hasn't tired the UK for so long.
You can buy this CD for less than £8 which made me a little wary about the quality, thankfully I did purchase it and am so glad I did as its in the car and on the iPod.
I am a massive fan of Neil Young and his music but believe Gordon Lightfoot is Canada's finest singer songwriter and perhaps now is the time his star shone a little brighter again as this album shows even in his 60's what a great performer can do, he is now in his 70's but would love to see him and his band live.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not as good, 28 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good film and worth watching hopefully the follow ups will get made, Daniel Craig as always puts in a good performance. Possibly better if you haven't read the books first as the story here simply isn't as detailed or as good. However if I had to watch the original Swedish film or this I would go to the original - more excitement and I felt closer to the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots for the money, 28 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lots and lots of bits for my Dremel at a good price can't go wrong really and from initial use they work fine. Case they come in is flimsy and not much use but easily moved into original Dremel case which was looking rather empty and and overflow into plastic box. Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Helping, 25 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Toulouse Street (Audio CD)
Released over 40 years ago this music just gets better especially compared to the image and hype that seems to be taking over the music business today. A superb 2nd album by the Doobie Brothers. The mix of light rock; Listen to the Music, Rockin' down the Highway to the acoustic Toulouse St, White Sun is excellent. Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons excel on vocals and guitar as always. Great musicianship and an album which has an excellent cover of Don't Start me Talkin'; the Doobie Brothers were fantastic and a real band!

Hellraisers: The Life and Inebriated Times of Burton, Harris, O'Toole and Reed
by Robert Sellers
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars Wild Tales, 19 Oct. 2014
An interesting read of the boozy ways of four well known actors the book takes us through each decade with lurid tales switching from actor to actor, in this way where they come across each other it works quite well. I would imagine quite a lot of research went into to this and its does make for interesting reading; entertaining, if repetitive, stories of unbelievable antics.
Some people may think these actors had some deep troubles to drive them to booze it up so much, perhaps Richard Burton did (he was married to Elizabeth Taylor after all) but the rest seem to have just done it because the enjoyed it and they hated the thought of living a conventional life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good way to save money, 19 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After recently getting a few watch batteries fitted at shops for exorbitant amounts I thought; could I do this myself? The only trouble is watches with threaded backs so bought this kit and several batteries for half the price shops charge to change a battery and the kit works fine. So its a good buy if you want to save some money

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect partnership, 10 Sept. 2014

This review is from: Aranjuez (Audio CD)
Jan Akkerman and Claus Ogerman made one of the most perfect albums of all time when they combined with an orchestra and created this. Jan Akkerman's playing is just superb taking classical music and putting his jazz touch to the guitar overplay, Claus Ogerman's arrangements are sublime.
The album is relaxing but also joyous it never fails to cheer me up, unfortunately it was never repeated. Jan Akkerman doesn't like repeating himself but moved on the different styles and players throughout his career more interested in music than fame and fortune he is the ultimate guitarist. A top ten album in my collection of over 1500.

This review is from: Alfie (Audio CD)
Great Film I always enjoyed the music and when I saw this CD I thought I would give it a try .
Great music to have on in the background or simply just to sit back close your eyes and enjoy a great musician and very talented composer.
Bought a few more of his album since though this remains a favourite.
