5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best 20th Century American History Book, 21 Nov. 2004
This review is from: The Twentieth Century (Paperback)
History is taught in such a boring way in the states and the leaders are made to look and act like stiff and emotionless. Almost like Idols. Plus, so much untruth is given and the point of view is always of the leaders as well as White Anglo American Males.
History in reality is fascinating and there needs to be some truth. If yoou look at the atitude of Americans on how they treated Indians, then look at Iraq, there are incredible parralls.
Same arrogance, same distain for the "brown" people of the world. Let us not forget that all of the founding fathers of America were wealthy land owners who owned slaves themselves. "All people are created equally" is only for White Anglo Saxon Christians and no one else.
The best documented book on history I have ever seen with quotes, documents, speeches and showing legislation that was adopted. An incredible work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alvin Lee At His Best, A Masterpiece, 23 April 2004
This review is from: Alvin Lee in Tennesse (Audio CD)
Message: I got my Tennessee today. Just went through the entire CD twiceand how ever high my expectations were, they were "lapped".
This is flippin magnificent. No ok, good, or great, spectacular, masmagnifico. I'm afraid to touch my CD because of the heat come out of itfrom that energy, love, happiness and pure joy inside of it.
Every piece of this CD is incredible from the musicianship, the band andthe great production.
Alvin was truly never better than he sounded on Tennessee, and theenthusiasm in his playing and his voice.
I felt that Alvin took an genre, that he loves and put his magic touch onit and made the genre a little bit wider than it ever was before.
He mastering of the art form he was playing was incredible, but Alvin didit "his" way, adding his heart and soul, style and energy to it. Inspired,fantastic.
What a band to play with, sounds like they have played all their livestoghether. Just perfect together, NO BULLS&^$. This mother is ABOUT THEMUSIC.
I do have to say that the band was flippin incredible, but WilliePritchard on piano, he and Alvin sounded like "peanut and butter", "milkand cookies". Fantastic.
If Alvin ever did not publish that version of "Goin Home", he should havebeen arrested for carrying a concealed weapon.
For now, the best CD of the century.
Could there be a better time for this CD to come out ?

I KNOW that Mr. Lee, the Master, cannot exactly be too upset about theNTYA clowns to produce music that is so unbelievably upbeat and pure.
