4.0 out of 5 stars Pat Boone Delivers Every Time Superb Listening., 8 Feb. 2009
This review is from: The Very Best Of (Audio CD)
If ever you think of the blistering singer fresh from the USA the label must go to Pat Boone a great unassuming man full of charm and a voice to melt your ice cream at a hundred paces then you have indeed met the man on this album. There is nothing he can not sing without the sheer glitter of show business.His music will live for generations to come and this is a very good example of how it should be done by a master-excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gershwin Brothers Ultimate Tribute Album!, 8 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Girl Crazy (Audio CD)
I have always been a Gershwin fan and collected various cover versions of their untouchable library but for once I was completely blown away by both the merchandising packaging which included a nice book let including some photo's of the brothers at various stages of career development supported by a bio graphical story board of how they came to get into show business fascinating material. Then we come to the CD itself using their original orchestrations beautifully done and with singers like Lorna Luft for one on it how could it possibly go wrong-well it doesn't this album is a collectors masterpiece-not to be missed at all!

4.0 out of 5 stars James Last Untouchable Orchestrations., 8 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Tenderly (Audio CD)
Is there nothing James Last cannot take on board and re arrange then deliver on a silver plate-he must be the most popular easy listening orchestra leader of the 20th century. This selection is taken from a wide range of material over many years t. It represents what excellent music should sound like. All the numbers are individual hits by other artists but when James Last get his hands on them they take on a new dimension.Simply wonderful material!

4.0 out of 5 stars Swing Is Here To Stay Today!, 8 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Simply Swing (Audio CD)
I think this album is possibly one of the most iconic compilations I now own.If you collect or dabble in Big Band Swing wait no longer to find an album of authentic material delivered by the all time masters.It doesn't get much better than this on any level.Do not miss out on getting a copy in as this is the foundation stone for all who love jazz music!

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Band Lives On The 50 Classics Unmissable Material!, 8 Feb. 2009
This review is from: 50 Big Band Classics (Audio CD)
Well I thought my memory for bid band and swing music was pretty good but after listening to the numbers featured on this CD I woke up to what I had missed out on until now. The digital enhancement of these tracks is out of this world in my opinion.It is a must for all people who either collect or perhaps play in a big band because everything there is as it should be remembered in a class of its own!

4.0 out of 5 stars Carousel the show lives on with great style-superb tracks., 8 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Carousel (Audio CD)
There is nothing but five star entertainment when you come face to face with any R&H Musicals and this was one of their first hits of all time.
It encompasses the atmosphere of Broadway with the superb vocal work and excellent orchestrations.You will be spellbound by the presentation levels
just the perfect way to chill out to that wonderful sound.A must for any avid collector of musicals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Judy Garland Screen Icon Delivers Pure Gold At Palladium.., 8 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This show edited from the London Palladium many years ago now.Only in monochrome of course but still captures the sheer magic created on that great stage by one of the industries icons of all time.Judy has the audience in the palm of her hard through out and the orchestra on stage is excellent as one would expect for a world class lady.Also introducing a young and very lovely Lisa who does a duet with her mum and some solo numbers too! If you enjoyed Judy on the silver screen you can't afford to miss this one,simply enchanting!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really excellent selection of jazz music simply superb!, 8 Feb. 2009
When it comes to choosing tracks for a launch cd for the number one jazz fm radio station then you need some experts on board.Well they certainly pulled all the stops out on this double cd the choice of material issued is without doubt representative of the more up to date styles and stands out on its own in a crowd.Can't wait for the second one to be released although we may have to hold on for some time there!
