1.0 out of 5 stars Short on detail, very shallow, 29 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sorcerer: A Life of Miles Davis is a very short and shallow overview of Miles' influential career. You would be better off reading the Wikipedia pages. Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I remembered!, 6 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Darts (Audio CD)
One of the first albums I ever bought! I loved it then and I can't believe it has never been issued on CD before. It is still great and even better than I remember. It was a great gateway into rock'n'roll and for that reason alone it is worth five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Band from 80s make welcome return, 9 Aug 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Western Eagle (Audio CD)
An excellent album. Why this band did not hit the big time in the 80s is obvious, they didn't follow the pack but instead played heartfelt, personal, melodic, memorable music. They were superb live, still are I expect. This collection exceeds expectations and is well worth a listen. Thanks, Martin!

5.0 out of 5 stars The true birth of the Marvel Age of Comics, 9 Sep 2000
When the Amazing Fantasy title was due for cancellation, Stan Lee decided to experiment with a different kind of hero, over the objections of publisher Martin Goodman. Steve Ditko went to work and a legend was born. (Note Jack Kirby drew the striking cover for Amazing Fantasy #15.)
Peter Parker was an ordinary teenager blessed with extraordinary powers after an encounter with a radioactive spider. Previous teen heroes had always been sidekicks to adult heroes e.g. Robin and Batman, Bucky and Captain America - but Stan and Steve created a character that reflected the hopes and fears of teenagers everywhere.
Ofcourse not every teenager faced such fascinating characters as the Green Goblin, Lizard, Sandman, Vulture, Chameleon, Mysterio and The Kingpin. Everyone could identify with Peter's struggle to make ends meet and juggle his private life. Spidey caught colds, lost his clothes, lost fights to school bullies and struggled to keep girlfriends. Whoever heard of multimillionaire Bruce Wayne being strapped for cash or Superman defeated becase he had a fever?
Spiderman was a hit from the very start and bcame the mainstay of the Marvel Universe. No Spidey, no X-Men, nuff said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lo, verily did Stan and Jack oversee the creation of Thor!, 25 Jun 2000
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thor is without doubt one of the greatest creations of the glorious Marvel Silver Age. Yes, the stories got even more wonderful in the ensuing years, but this is where it all started. If the sight of the rainbow bridge and Asgard in all its glory is your thing then this is a must. All Avenger fans should purchase these early stories concerning the mightiest of Earth's mightiest heroes. Nuff'said.
