5.0 out of 5 stars Diva .................... what ???????, 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i'm a bit apprehensive when it comes to "live" cds, but when I put this on - it just completely blew me away - 92 - 94 at the start of her career before she blossomed into one of the biggest selling artists of all time, and listening to this you know just why - note perfect, and at a time when dance music was ruling the world, Mariah comes along and blasted everything out of the way - do not diss this lady until you have heard the live versions here of Hero and Without You ............. what a truly, truly remarkable lady Mariah Carey is.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome., 5 Aug 2013
This review is from: Never Too Far (Audio CD)
It took a long time for me to track this cd down .... finally found somewhere in America, love the medley - and There For Me has got to be one of Mariah's best songs ever ....... why this didn't get a general release of it's own I will never know - just totally awesome. Love it - it's definitely worth 5 stars for the spine-tingling vocal, of There For Me - written directly for the fans......what a gift!!

5.0 out of 5 stars #Beautiful., 4 Aug 2013
Whilst the Triumphant single last year, had me worried to death, that Mariah had taken a heavy heavy turn in the phunk direction. How wrong was I!!! a hit earlier this year with Almost Home from the soundtrack of The Land Of Oz .... had me breathing a sigh of relief ...... Then we have #Beautiful, which absolutely is what it says ......... Beautiful ~ kicking off with Miguel who completely owns the opening and the first chorus ..... then welcome back Mariah, to hear Mariah sing in this key, which is (well, I think so) hip hop cross pop with Rn'B chucked in for good measure, is a very emotional return to form .... So far it's spent 13 weeks inside the UK Top 40 ~ not that anybody is interested in chart positions etc these days, I just thought that was a force to be reckoned with - if this is the first taster of the new Mariah album - then bring it to me - cant wait. 23 years at the top of her game,in the business - and quite rightly so!!!

I was so excited to receive this album, it's been a long time since any new release from The Nolans ..... I can describe this album in 1 word - and that's sweet ............ I think the single When I Need You / Just When I Needed You Most, wasn't a good choice for a single - the single should of been I Honestly Love You, played on surround sound this song is beautiful.
Just One Voice, is quite a sad title for the album, because at the Nolans reunion a few years back Anne never got asked to rejoin, but however that's another story .......... this album is quite a nice change in todays "thump thump" music industry and you wont hear Anne's songs at a local nightclub, but however - a hard day at work, or feeling emotional, this album will ease you - relax, light a candle, pour a glass of wine and have this album on in the background ............. Afore mentioned, .... sweet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Global Culture !!!!!!!, 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A long over due cd release of this concert, because in 2012 it would have been Culture Club's 30th Anniversary .... Needless, to say - the fans will know every track from this album, as the DVD came out many years ago - still good though, and good to recapture the time of the 20th reunion concerts ....... Culture Club, or certainly Boy George, a UK national treasure, has stood the test of time as one of Britain's most loved pop stars, even today 30 years on Karma Chameleon can fill a dance floor, and Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, captures people's hearts ...... All in all, the hits may no longer be coming fast and furious - but Boy George knows how to get into the hearts of new romantic fans the world over - a really catchy concert.

Bonnie Tyler, is a living legend, a national treasure, but sadly extremely over-looked in the UK .... I remember seeing Bonnie in concert many years ago, and boy! did she rock - this dvd / cd combi is really good, I enjoyed it - the only downsize is, the small stage - so Bonnie doesn't get the chance to rock out .... but still all the same, a must for the fans!

This review is from: Witness (1990) (Audio CD)
23 years on since this cd was released, I have re-discovered it - and e-discovered why I fell in love with Halo James and Christian's mega soulful soothing voice, which just oozes something that is missing from today's so-called singers.
Kicking off with the huge Top 10 hit Could Have Told You So, this album has hooked you right there - with track 1, a sing-along chorus, and catchy verses.....then next single Baby, appears in much the same form, it's soulful, it's sexy, it's groovy - and so is Magic Hour another single which should have set the Top 5 alight, but with lack of radio / TV promotion, didn't get a chance to shine .... Is This The Way Love's Meant To Be and Pure Velvet, just seem to put a hard day at work right for some reason - and so on this album is really great - also includes the debut single Wanted, which should have hit No.1, and opened the gates for the US market, but Halo James, never got the recognition they so deserved - I didn't appreciate this album the way I should back in the day, I always knew I liked it, and didn't part with it for a reason - and after deciding to relive my youth somewhat, you just think damb! what mighty fine song writers they were / are !!! .... I really hope one day that Halo James will follow this album up, or even a revamped release with the 12" mixes etc, that'd be great ....In the meantime, if you are sort of browsing your days gone by as I was - check this out, you wont be disappointed !!!!!!!!!!

Speed back to 1991 - clubbing in Stoke-on-Trent, and that first (warped) beat of Sunshine On A Rainy Day would always get a cheer and fill the dance floor ........ I originally had this album on cassette - and recently got the cd, as it was one of the highlight albums of the early 1990's........
Kicking off with the awesome hit Lightning, which should have been a much bigger hit than it was sets the scene for this album... another awesome tune which was Mountains follows on, then Loving Kind, then it softens down for the title track - then belts straight back into form with the 3rd single Holy Days - then of course the huge Top 3 hit Sunshine On A Rainy Day, which was so cruelly denied that No.1 spot - but anyway this track has it's own classic status ......... Rainbow and Moonsister - should have followed as singles, but at a time when 7" and 12" singles were being replaced by cd singles it was a very obscure time for singles and artists, and record companies wouldn't take risks with artists ......... but I believe personally if Zoe's record company had taken a chance on her and gave her the exposure and light and promotion she deserved, her career may have been so different .......... Think Alanis Morissette .... Joan Osborne, and Zoe would have fit right in with these artists, finishing the album with Runaway Child, Baby On Higher Love and Smile In The Darkness - just leaves you wanting more, and you'll be checking out Zoe's other cd's!!!.

Cant believe when I saw the price of these tablets on line, compared to the vets surgery and the pet shops that sell them - they are less than half the price that are charged in the shops ............ I don't think the dog was too keen on them coming through the post box though - I think he had a bit of a shock when he tore the parcel up and saw what was inside !!!

From the first beat of Madonna's Eyes, I knew I was gonna like this album - I remember listening to this album at a friends house around 1985 and thought I must get it - In 2013 I finally got and it's a cracking album - each track has it's own sing along melody!
