5.0 out of 5 stars Bond for children..yet again !!, 24 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Spectre [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
BUT ..only 2 stars for the dvd ........it`s cut !! all the tension in the torture scene is gone ...the needles/drills scenes are shown from a distance , no close ups ...the needle/drill going for Bond`s eye - missing ...when I saw this in the cinema..you could hear a pin drop/intakes of breath it was so tense ...why can`t we have this on dvd /

5.0 out of 5 stars `The chairman - an epic` .., 30 Nov. 2015
This review is from: Sinatra: The Chairman (Hardcover)
This is `the book` about Sinatra in two volumes ( 2010s Frank : the voice ) `The chairman` completes the work,and what a work it is - from the bobby-soxers days in the first volume to the aging crooner who retired in 1971,but just couldn`t give up the limelight in this volume ! everything good or bad about the star can be found here in such detail that you`ll never need to read another book on the man.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have ..., 30 Nov. 2015
With all the books already written about the man - do we really need another one ? when the author is Spencer Leigh - the answer is yes, Spencer grew up in and writes about the `50s/`60s in great detail (many books) it`s in this context Sinatra is fitted into - how he felt about Elvis,The Beatles and the times/culture. it goes into great minute detail about the man, we already know Frank wasn`t a very nice guy - thanks to Kitty Kelley ! more of `those` stories feature in this tome,but with a more even handed overview, Frank was no saint, but he did have `the voice` that made people forgive him anything. he would have been 100 this year (2015) his story will always be told, but maybe no better than this one - if you want to really `know` Sinatra - better buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Billy`s back .., 1 Aug. 2015
Like he`d never been gone ...British rock`n`roll at it`s best - and Billy was our best -the star out of Liverpool before the Beatles ! the delay in the release of this dvd was due to the fact .....the footage of Jimmy Savile had to be removed (for obvious reasons) Jimmy knew Billy well,and told some great stories about his concerts (see other dvds about Billy to hear these great tales) apart from that - this is a gem,containing just about all the film footage of him left in existence - a must for your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Donovan is back, 8 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Retrospective (Audio CD)
Fans of the Scottish bard will love this compilation ..put together by the man himself to celebrate his fifty years in the music business ! it contains all the `hits` ...but wait - not your regular EMI re-issue ..many different takes/different mixes ..plus a `new` song to welcome in the summer of 2015. so do yourself a favour and get this album asap !!

by Cohen
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £32.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Dylan a different view .., 13 April 2015
a superb photo book from someone who was there - right place right time, to photograph the demise of Woody Guthrie,and the Rise of Bob Dylan in the early `60s ...fantastic shots of the young Bob,also great colour shots from `68-`70 ..see Bob holding the self portrait painting that was used for the cover of `sing out` magazine,as well as the conversation he had with the author of the book in `68 ( a time when he was saying very little) a must have for your bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is `not` the Reprise cd .., 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live in Paris June 1962 (Audio CD)
I have the Reprise `Sinatra live in paris` cd ..this is not that !! ..different show..lyrics changed in songs/different banter between songs .. only a couple of songs - same version as the Reprise cd !! tapes from these Paris shows must have gotten mixed up over the years / so you need both for your collection. both are `great` concerts.
