Romantic English Homes
Romantic English Homes
by Robert O'Byrne
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 29.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Very posed choices, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Romantic English Homes (Hardcover)
I find the houses shown in this book to be mannered and clever rather than either invigorating or elegant. Eclecticism is really a very wearisome thing and often represents no more than a grand name for a pile of near-rubbish arranged to surprise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots to hear, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing on the CD approaches the power of the lead song. Much is beautifully sung, much is tasteful and atmospheric, but the quality of the material itself is not 100%. Listening to all the tracks in one attentive sitting, I'm afraid, makes that all too clear, as I see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never disappoints, 4 July 2013

This review is from: Little Broken Hearts (Audio CD)
There is some excellent material here, beautifully performed. Possibly there are fewer surprises than on earlier albums, but nevertheless it's wonderful to listen to.

This review is from: The Little Willies (Audio CD)
Good musicians working well together, but lacking in a sense of intense purpose and musical direction. Norah towers above the overall standard of the team as a performer, though not necessarily as a player.

This review is from: Prehistoric Anglesey (Hardcover)
This book introduces the very significant prehistoric sites of the island with good photographs, descriptions and discussion. Invaluable as an introduction and a guide.


Bacchus: A Biography
Bacchus: A Biography

Edition: Hardcover
Price: 14.06

4.0 out of 5 stars An amalgam, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bacchus: A Biography (Hardcover)
Binds together every aspect of the hugely interesting tradition of Bacchus in a faintly coherent way, but in truth fails to be a book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Deadly dull, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite all the associated build-up, this man has nowhere near the talent of his best contemporaries. The buying public's original judgement of his work was correct, in my view.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific stuff, 4 July 2013

This review is from: Just One Night (Audio CD)
Clapton always was a singer, not just a guitarist, and if you go back to the whole output of Cream, it's actually a collection of remarkable songs, not a mountain of guitar breaks. Very much worth having.

Not the greatest band of all time, but a superbly capable one, much of whose best music is here. Certainly worth having.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bloomfield never fails to soar, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Labors (Audio CD)
A mixed bag as an album, but the best of Mike Bloomfield's guitar on the album is required listening for anyone who values his playing.
