5.0 out of 5 stars popular, 16 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shadows In The Night (Audio CD)
a tasteful album that rewrites history
taking songs made popular by Frank Sinatra
giving them the modern sound of a Bob Dylan album
I hope there will be a proper Americana set released soon
not a tribute to Bing Crosby!

4.0 out of 5 stars filler, 16 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
not as essential as the earlier volumes
by 1965 American pop had lost it's shine
some good songs but to be honest a lot of filler

This review is from: Slicker Than A Weasel (Audio CD)
recorded towards the end of his first real hit season
a perfect live album to show his mercurial talent
a good selection of songs and a 10 minute schools out!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, 16 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
proof that the stranglers were still making fantastic music in the 80s
maybe not as successful as their early days
this has some great singles you need to hear

This review is from: Get Up Offa That Thing (Audio CD)
a funk bomb from the master
probably his last essential 70's album
until gravity gave his fans some hope
extended versions to get your freak on!

5.0 out of 5 stars mother, 16 Feb. 2015
i own all of the psycho films including the 2002 remake
that one is worth watching before the tv series
because it brings the story up to the modern era
then go back 20 years or so to when norman was a teenager
see how his psychosis developed with a lot of help from his mother
a nightmare of a show for adults only

she likes this hair tool but says it should have a curling wand whatever that is?
it gets very hot so be careful, great value for money!

5.0 out of 5 stars not obvious, 5 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not usually keen on cover version albums
especially since the x factor karaoke disasters
the banshees do a good job here
impressive but not obvious choices
left field rock as would be expected
this version includes b sides and the 12" mixes

5.0 out of 5 stars missed, 5 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
great value 6cd set of Woodstock recordings
includes some fine performances that were missed off
the original albums but some important songs that should be included are not
this is very frustrating, will there be a second collection?
