5.0 out of 5 stars atrocious, 9 May 2015
This review is from: Sound & Colour (Audio CD)
There is no doubt this is a great album
I am not going to say who it sounds like
The sleeve design is atrocious poor quality printing and bad design which is hopefully nothing to do with the band
I am not going to knock stars off

5.0 out of 5 stars Free and Easy, 8 May 2015
Saturday night's in the early 60's my parents took me to the Social Club.
After the Bingo and the Free and Easy, when my Father often sang Mario Lanza songs very well.
It was time to pull back the tables and chairs to reveal the dance floor.
Then for an hour or so pop music was played and many people danced.
I remember the Chubby Checker songs were my favourites the twist songs and limbo rock.
Not forgetting Sam Cooke and Joey Dee and I loved the Drifters Saturday Night At The Movies and Sweets for my Sweet.
Those hits were not exactly twisters but with a similar rhythm.
They were and still are some of the best early Dance tunes.
There was no DJ the Steward played the singles on a Dansette.
A small record player I had always asked for but never got.
I presumed that these singles were all owned by his beautiful daughter.
This album has a lot more tunes that would have gone down well with the working men's families.
There is another album with a similar title that includes some Christmas twist misses, maybe one for the future?

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad Day, 17 April 2015
This review is from: Orchestral (Audio CD)
It was a sad day when I heard that Steve Strange had died
It took a few weeks before I heard the news
This album is the perfect tribute and I hope it was played at his Funeral
The King and Queen of New Wave can Rest in Peace

4.0 out of 5 stars deserved, 13 April 2015
I have loved Kylie since day one but the first CD I bought was confide in me
Over the years I have built up a good collection and now it is time
To start again with these deluxe editions
I am not going to buy the box sets these 2CD DVD versions are well overpriced forcing me to knock off an otherwise deserved star

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, 16 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A new album that includes a greatest hits CD
They should have taken a chance
The concrete songs are great on their own
Still fantastic value if you are tempted

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fiends Of Dope Island (Audio CD)
Late period cramps set
This does not include the early classics
Still worthwhile for gothic lovers

Mid period live show from little feat

4.0 out of 5 stars respect, 16 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Inspired by the southern soul sounds popularised by artists like Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin and later adapted by Elvis Presley
Matthew e white shows others how it is done
With a big band and a respect for what went before
Expect to see him playing arenas soon

5.0 out of 5 stars worthless, 16 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Singles 2007-10 (Audio CD)
Now that singles are worthless downloads
Artists can release as many as they like
Without worrying if they will sell
Some will be limited 7 inch singles
These can fetch high prices
Here is a compilation album to allow new fans to catch up


Strategies Against Architecture IV Digipak

Price: £10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars industrial, 16 Mar. 2015
There should be a box set of these industrial sound albums
Volumes 1 and 4 are affordable
Volumes 2 and 3 cost £100
Way out of the price range of most who would buy them
