3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I had hoped for, 13 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Roll (Audio CD)
Some time ago Bob Harris played a couple of tracks from this CD. As it was available at a reasonable price I thought I'd take a chance and give it a try. Turns out he'd played the best two tracks. OK, there were a couple of others I liked but 4 out 13 isn't good enough


The Last Jihad: A Novel
The Last Jihad: A Novel

5.0 out of 5 stars Page turner, 13 Aug. 2013

Only discovered this author about six months ago.....what a find ! A recent visit to the Holy land reinforced my interest in the region and it's politics [and it's many problems] so....to read about the sort of things that "could be" really took hold of my imagination ! Thank goodness it's fiction. If you like "a gripping read" I highly recommend it. In another review I commented on "The Last Days" and said that I intended to get hold of his other Middle East novels, well, I've ordered them [thro Amazon, of course].

This guy's knowledge, imagination, especially of Middle East politics and his brilliant writing skills make for one of the best "reads" for a long time. I got thro it within 24 hours.[for me thats FAST]. Very highly recommended. Now to get hold of his other books.

I'm filling up my collection [of the stuff i like] by Rick. His best period, in my opinion, was when he had the Stone Canyon Band as his backing outfit...I especially approved of Tom Brumley [on steel] so this comes highly recommended by me. Good songs...good singer...good band...good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two for one, 12 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I owned these two on L.Ps [remember them?] some years ago but sold them. Recently, finding both on one I thought I'd put them back into my collection...good decision especially as there is a good selection of "Country and Western" material well performed and sung. I only ever had one critisism....that being the lack of "fiddle and steel" in the backing band, an electric dobro doesn't quite provide full authenticity.

Some time ago I sold most of my Eagles albums so, recently, felt that I should, at least, have some representation of their best stuff. This CD fits the bill AND at a bargain price ! Highly recommended especialy if you don't have anything by one of the world's best bands.

I only "rediscovered" John about a year ago [always liked CCR] so have been adding anything I could lay my hands on [at a reasonable price] and have been quite fortunate in gathering some really good stuff. It doesn't put me off that there is a lot of duplication, sometimes it's different recordings. This collection is excellent [25 tracks] as is the DVD of the same name.

Whilst I already have this recording on reel tape I figured "at this price I may as well have the real thing, at least for the better quality". Worthwhile purchase. Good selection of his best stuff, well performed..

5.0 out of 5 stars Wot a bargain!, 19 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Ragged But Right (Audio CD)
Always liked George, even tho he lost his way a bit once of twice thro the years. I have most of his early stuff on original Starday and Mercury LP's in my LP collection also tracks "borrowed" from friends on tape. Despite this I just could not resist investing in this triple set. I'm playing it now and enjoying it immensely. For anyone who's country music taste goes back to the fifties it is a MUST. It's real fiddle and steel stuff. Highly recommended. ALSO: the service thro Amazon was VERY quick.

Bought on price [and brand] so I had to have one or, maybe, eventually, a sythe ! No choice. Very good service.
