Strongly recommended album by a group which has since lost its way.The other excellent album by DCFC is Transatlanticism. l love the group name-I must look for the original track by the Bonzo Dog Doodah Band

2.0 out of 5 stars Lots of filler, 22 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mixed up with their hits are some annoyingly ordinary dated tracks, especially on the second disc. No long lost classic b sides here, and certainly no sign of adventure. I would suggest buying thier 20 greatest hits album and leave this album to the Hollies anoraks

Buy this and Plans, and you will hve two great albums by this greatly under-rated group who reached their zenith 10 years ago. To explore further try to get hold of the only album by Postal Service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive best of Tim Buckley?, 22 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Strangelyn there aare two double albums available, both claiming to be the best of Tim. In a way thats true, Morning Glory tends towards highlighting his early folk and later rock albums, wheas this album features most of the tracks from Starsailor-not available on cd elsewhere and the fabulous remixed Lorca as well as his folk and folk jazz days. The bonus is that the Anthology is very light on tracks from his last three and by far worst albums.

Buy This album and Morning Glory and you will have all the Starsailor tracks, and highlights the fabulous music created by this great singer.

4.0 out of 5 stars History revisited, 21 Aug. 2013

Very individualistic view of Modern British history, and well worth watching for that reason alone. Good idea to watch it in small chunks as his commentary can appear intrusive to the story after a time.

Contains some of her best and most famous songs. Recorded just before she left folk for more adventurous music. Look out for the bargain price 10 disc set of her original albums

Almost how I imagined Rebus to be. Some excellent episodes, mainly true to the original story. Looking forward to seeing the new Ian Rankin book appearing on TV

Avoid the £40 rip-off for the current yearbook-the only important differences are thetide tables and if you are unlucky an occasional new buoy!)
