4.0 out of 5 stars Review - Felix The Cat (Felix In Hollywood) [DVD] [2004] ASIN: B0002EJDYS Studio: delta home entertainment, 12 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD has suffered the same twisted fate of so many items at the hands of the idiots that edit the Amazon UK website. Nobody seems to check the date of the reviews posted against either the basic product description or the product release date.

Felix The Cat has had almost as many reincarnations as the Dali Lama.
This DVD features early cartoons from Felix's second and seventh incarnations. This equates to 1923 - 1925, the Margaret J. Winkler period, and two final colour cartoons from the 1936 Van Beuren/RKO period.

The clarity is ok for the black and white cartoons, while the 2 colour ones are a bit patchy, but considering their age, they are OK. The black and white cartoons contain a "Jazzy" soundtrack, while the two colour ones have the characters speaking.

The episodes on this DVD are -
'Felix in Hollywood' - July 15, 1923
'Felix Doubles for Darwin' - March 15, 1924
'Felix Goes West' - August 1, 1924
'Felix Finds Out' - April 1, 1924
'Felix All Puzzled' - January 15, 1925
'Felix Monkeys With Magic' - May 8, 1925
'Felix Gets the Can' - May 8, 1925
'A Felix Comic' ?
'Felix the Cat and the Goose that Laid the Golden Egg' - February 7, 1936
'Felix the Cat in Neptune Nonsense' - March 20, 1936

3.0 out of 5 stars Review - Hey! Hey! It's The Monkees Greatest Hits - The Monkees (K-Tel UK 1989), 23 May 2015
This 1989 UK release from K-Tel came out in Vinyl, Cd and Cassatte formats. All versions were identical, with 18 tracks, 9 on eack side of the LP and cassette. CD Length is 50:38 and all the tracks sound original 1960's MONO to me, so you may have to adjust them if you want to listen to MP3 Rips.

Not a bad LP/CD, although there are better, more complete Monkees compilations available these days, 26 years after this one was released.

Track list

A1 (Theme From) The Monkees
A2 Daydream Believer
A3 Pleasant Valley Sunday
A4 I'm Not Your Stepping Stone
A5 The Girl I Knew Somewhere
A6 Alternate Title
A7 D.W. Washburn

5.0 out of 5 stars Double Dutch or what?, 23 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Duck Rock (Audio CD)
Duck Rock Malcolm McLaren - Charisma Records Ltd. 1987 Marketed by Virgin MMCD1 256 908 PM 500

This CD has a very confusing track listing if you ever get round to ripping it for your MP3 player.
The original Vinyl and Audio Cassette version of Duck Rock has 12 tracks but the CD only lists 11, both on the CD itself and on the back cover of the artwork. When the CD is played it comes up with the original 12 track listing. Closer inspection of the artwork gives more detail of the tracks, 2 of which are only listed on the inner notes, EL SAN JUANERA and SHE'S LOOKING LIKE A HOBO, the latter being a scratch of a dance.
Anyway, the 12 track listing below will give you the correct rip titles with track 4, EL SAN JUANERA, being the one missing on the CD itself and on the back cover of the artwork. Double Dutch or what?

12 Track Listing

1. Obatala
2. Buffalo Gals
3. Double Dutch
4. El San Juanera
5. Merengue
6. Punk It Up
7. Legba
8. Jive My Baby
9. Song For Chango
10. Soweto
11. World's Famous
12. Duck For The Oyster

4.0 out of 5 stars Case itself is perfect fit for Sony E1 and looks very smart, 14 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brought one of these cases from SHUKAN when they first started selling them in Nov 2014 for £0.99 inc. P+P. Real bargin! - Case, Stylus, Screen Protector and Polishing Cloth well worth money.

Case itself is perfect fit for Sony E1 and looks very smart. Only drawback is the Stylus or headphones have no room in this case.

I brought a case for a Nokia 530 at the same time as I brought this case and that one had room for the Stylus which made it a lot more usable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Collector - Two classic Eddie Cochran albums + ten extra tracks on one CD - Magnifico !, 22 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Collector (Audio CD)
Brought this Italian compilation after reading up on Eddie via Wikipedia.
Article included details of his death, his Gretsch, Marc Bolan, Dave dee, + George Martin connection, very strange karma.

Eddie only released one album during his lifetime, the 12 track, "Singin' To My Baby", in Nov 1957. A second album,"12 of His Biggest Hits" was released in April 1960 to promote his UK tour with Gene Vincent. After Cochran's death on April 17, it was re-titled "The Eddie Cochran Memorial Album" and reissued in May.Two tracks appeared on both albums, the hit singles "Sittin' in the Balcony" from Feb 1957 and "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?" from Nov 1957.

This Compilation is made up of both albums,in more or less their original track order, starting with "The Eddie Cochran Memorial Album" and then "Singin' To My Baby". Track 13, Twenty Flight Rock, separates the two original albums.

The further ten tracks from the end of "one Kiss" appear to be a "best of" selection from posthumously released material. Some classic Rock n Roll tracks, such as, Blue Swede shoes and Long Tall Sally, which were recorded by Eddie are missing, but all in all a fine CD. Sound is clear but I suspect as original recordings, Mono.

Slight drawback is sleeve notes are all in Italian.

Total running time 67 mins

The B-52's debut album (without any 'bonus' tracks on the CD) 9 tracks in total

Island master CD.

Well worth owning this classic album. If this one is a bit pricey, check out the spectrum CD release from 1995 which includes 6 of the 9 tracks here plus later 8 more classics.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Nick Cave - Mute B0000089AV 11 May 1998 - 2 CD includes "Live at Royal Albert Hall", 5 April 2014

Review - The Best of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Mute B0000089AV 11 May 1998 - 2 CD includes "Live at Royal Albert Hall"

Brought this item secondhand on Amazon and found it contained a bonus CD of a live set from the Royal Albert Hall, London. Going back to the Amazon UK page, the main listing states "Number of Discs: 1", and all the other Amazon pages for "The Best of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds", only list a single CD version. Oddly enough, the CD sleeve notes don't mention a bonus CD or even give a track listing for this live CD.

Checking this title out on Wikipedia[...]Seeds it states.......

Special edition
The album was also released as a special edition with a live bonus disc, titled "Live at the Royal Albert Hall", recorded on 19 and 20 May 1997. This bonus CD was subsequently released in 2008 as a regular disk, with four additional tracks and without "The Weeping Song".

"Lime Tree Arbour" – 3:42
"Stranger Than Kindness" – 5:02
"Red Right Hand" – 5:18
"I Let Love In" – 4:12
"Brompton Oratory" – 3:47
"Henry Lee" – 4:00
"The Weeping Song" – 4:38
"The Ship Song" – 4:12
"Where the Wild Roses Grow" – 4:01

So there you have it. Just to clarify, this double CD is on the original Mute label no. LC5834 LCDMUTEL4.

A final note to die hard fans...
On the main CD, the following tracks are the edited single versions, but again there is no mention of this in the sleeve notes.

Track 2, "Red Right Hand" – 4:48
Track 4, "Tupelo" – 5:12
Track 10,"Do You Love Me?" – 4:37
Track 11 "The Mercy Seat" – 5:08
Track 14 "The Ship Song" – 4:42

The whole album length is 75:38, so I guess that's why they choose the edits to shoehorn them all onto one CD.
