There Are Bad Times Just Around The Corner
There Are Bad Times Just Around The Corner
Price: £0.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Amongst the best doom and gloom songs ever!, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Morrissey, Leonard Cohen - eat your hearts out. This is D & G by a master composer and a hilarious song spitting in the face of the over-optimism urged by the BBC and - more pertinently - Churchill during the War.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good 2 Disc Set But Includes PJ Under Review, 7 May 2012
This review is from: The Document (Audio CD)
This is a great video. One of the best documentaries on Pearl Jam we've ever seen but if you have already seen Pearl Jam Under Review then you have already seen this. It is the same thing just with a different title. If you haven't seen it get it. It is a wonderful addition to any Pearl Jam fan's collection. But this package does also contain an interview disc with over an hour of interviews with PJ too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Documentary, 3 May 2012
A terrific film all about the early days of 'DC when Sir Angus was at the helm. Lots of footage of these days is included and all round watching this DVD is a very decent way to spend 90 minutes of your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 23 Mar. 2012
Here's a collection of twenty-three rare UK R&B and psych tracks. As these have been rescured from virtually totalled acetates, which themselves were often recorded primitively, the sound lack a certain hi-fi-quality. Don't get us wrong, the sound is very good and totally listenable on all tracks. Many mindburners like The King-Pins, Exiles, One In A Million, The Wheels, 4 Aces, John Lee and the Groundhogs, The Partisons, The Spectres, The Craig, Sonic Invasion, The Disturbance, Sons of Man and many "Unknown" artists. The Craig is not an acetate but a rare German B side. John Lee IS John Lee Hooker. Nice booklet with a lot of notes on the bands and label photos. 1. Neil Christian & The Crusaders - I Like It 2. The King-Pins - Maybe Sometime 3. unknown - Can't Stop The Want I Got For You Babe 4. The Exiles - Love In The Making 5. unknown - You'd Better Get Going 6. One In A Million - No Smokes 7. The King-Pins - You're My Girl 8. unknown - To Be With You 9. The Wheels - I'm Leaving 10. The Four Aces - Why Do You 11. John Lee's Groundhogs - Someone To Love 12. The Partisans - All Night Worker 13. Spectres - The Facts Of Life 14. unknown - Nonsense And Misery 15. The King-Pins - Baby I Need 16. The Craig - Dancing Down In New Orleans 17. Sonic Invasion - Go Out And Get Her 18. unknown - I'm Gonna Have My Fun 19. The Prophets - My Little Girl 20. The Disturbance - Apple Crumble 21. Strange Brew - (I Am) The Letterman 22. Sons Of Man - Our Love 23. unknown - McDougal Street Freak Out

3.0 out of 5 stars Lets face it - it aint great!, 14 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Kisses On The Bottom (Audio CD)
McCartney's made some terrific albums across the years, but this just ain't one of them. 3 stars for simply sticking in there but I still haven't go to the end of this. A little tedious to be fair.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable telling of events, 6 Mar. 2012
Not the finest film version of the saga, but a reasonably well acted and enjoyable version.See the Glenda Jackson or Helen Mirren versions for the real deal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, but it does the job, 14 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you just want to know the facts then this is probably the book for you. But it's tough going and the writing goes along at a snails pace. A labour of love no doubt, but we're not all so enthused by facts and figures I guess.

This review is from: All at Once [7" VINYL] (Vinyl)
Lovely to find a 45 of this track, beautifully reproduced as the original Decca single (which would set you back hundreds if not thousands)

Delighhtful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good all round Coldplay Documentary, 14 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best music documentaries i've seen in a long while. Lots of interviews with the band themselves for a change, who actually seem to enjoy talking about their career and their success. Head and shoulders above those docus which have nobody even remotely connected doing the talking.
Top marks
