1.0 out of 5 stars No way!, 19 Nov 2010
I would like to share the optimism of the others but it is simply impossible that the original uncut version would find its way to BD anywhere in Europe, especially not in England. Even so, don't be sorry for that unless you are truly deranged because, let the shock alone, this is the sickest piece of film ever produced. And I mean ever! Unless I missed something during my lifetime.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where did it go?, 1 Nov 2010
For quite some time I have been waiting for TSSOC Vol.8 to become available and it was getting late, later than the publishing date, but that was not something new. Still, right now it is available from other branches of Amazon (Germany, US) but not from UK. Why? Does this mean that the coming volumes would also suffer the same faith as Vol.8? I am very satisfied with the service of Amazon UK and I would hate to switch to any other branch unless I would be forced to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, but..., 20 Oct 2010
If you ever loved The Airplane you need this one, if not the whole recently released series. The only question was why this concert was released without the last four songs: High Flying Bird, Wild Thyme, Go To Her and Rock Me Baby. Anyway, let's hope that Sony would continue with more gems from the late sixties.

4.0 out of 5 stars DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR..., 16 May 2010
By pure accident, until recently I left unread the closing notes of Ulrike Meinhoff's daughter and I was quite disturbed by the amount of stupidity in this text. Living my whole life behind The Iron Curtain and knowing very well the communist system and its methods, Ulrike's daughter struggles to prove her mother was a communist for someone like me only looked as an act of insane attempt to prove the unprovable. Hence the editor's note: "This essay was the condition in exchange for the publication rights", a kind of blackmail to me, isn't it? So, do yourself a favour and tear out the pages 256-264, this way you will have an extraordinary body of work of an extraordinary free-minded thinker that lived in post-Nazi Germany.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't hesitate to buy but..., 20 Jun 2009
All said above is quite right, but the additional material, especially music videos are of lesser quality compared to the movie. Still, with some exceptions like Jefferson Airplane in the superb quality, CCR and Grateful Dead are in "dark as the dungeon" quality.
Being an avid Woodstock fan I expected all previously issued material to be present here, especially Woodstock Diaries, but a lot of the essential stuff is missed, like: Somebody To Love and White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane, Incredible String Band, Tim Hardin etc.
It would be nice to find Woodstock Diary Blu-Ray to fill the gaps, otherwise DVD would do just fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quiet man of Traffic, 11 Nov 2008
This review is from: Vulcan (Audio CD)
Long overdue release in every sense! Almost legendary unreleased album by sax/flute player from Traffic was in limited circulation among collectors, although never in this quality. Truly great instrumentals and jams reflected Chris Wood's role in the arrangements of Traffic songs. I only wonder how come the collector's version in circulation consisted of four more songs (Song For Pete, Tone Blind - Rhythm Deaf, Jam In Butter and Tragic Magic) plus two more versions of Letter One. Why these tracks were ommited? Nevertheless, don't miss the great legacy of the great musician.

4.0 out of 5 stars Denny is always welcomed but..., 14 Oct 2008
This review is from: 2 (Audio CD)
Fotheringay Vol.2

First, this is not an unfinished album, but the collection of leftovers from BBC sessions, not "originally recorded at Sound Techniques" as quoted, at least most of the tracks weren't. "John The Gun" was from November 1970 BBC, but with recently overdubbed sax(?!) in the vain of similarly tempered "Gold Dust" concert where, apart from Sandy's voice, just the bits were from the original concert. "Eppy Moray" and wonderful "Wild Mountain Thyme" were the versions from BBC April 1970, and Fairport concert standard "Knights On The Road" definitely didn't belong here same as "Restless". Frankly, I believe that these two tracks were recorded by Trevor Lucas after Fotheringay disbanded, because Fotheringay never performed these tunes, nor live nor on BBC. Also, it sounds as some of the instruments were recorded much more recently that 1970, same as "I Don't Believe You". "Late November", "Gypsy Davey" and "Two Weeks Last Summer" were recorded during 1st album sessions and were not the part of BBC sessions.

Still, I see this as an essential addition to every decent collection of Sandy Denny, although definitely not as the previously unfinished second album of Fotheringay. If Mr. Donahue wanted to assemble the collection of what was left behind he could use brilliant "Lowlands Of Holland" from BBC Folk On One or folk-rock version of "Memphis Tennesee". I am sure that their inclusion would make this compilation better value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss it!, 31 Aug 2008
For years I hesitated to purchase this set, especialy after the introduction of Blu-Ray, thinking that the quality would be more or less similar to those of VHS and early DVDs. What a grave misjudgement! The picture quality of 1 and 2 is almost equal to Blu-Ray (I watched on PS3 and Full HD Sony 46V3000) and the sound is the best it could be, so if you ever had a soft spot for The Tall Man and The Spheres don't hesitate. It already hard to find item, so Amazon UK is your last resort, as was to me. No time to wait, trust me!

3.0 out of 5 stars Official bootleg, 21 Jun 2008
To make it clear, the music on this CD is great, although the recording definitely isn't. It is the late show from Ebbet's Field, Denver, February 19, and both show were included on many bootleg in the past, this particular disc is the exact replica of "Aircraft & More". Unfortunately, the sound is still muddy, so I am not sure that there were any remastering done on this. Still, the music is worth having it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Be extra careful!, 3 Jan 2007
I have been tempted by "early Cream 1967 & 68" but, alas, no 1967, but zilion times seen Royal Albert Hall 1968. Well, the worst is yet to come: Smother Brothers Show and Hall Of Fame performance were ripped from undetected generation VHS and the quality is much worse than anything you have ever seen on an official DVD release. So you were warned, I wasn't!
