This review is from: Vibrate: The Best Of (Audio CD)
Saw Rufus on TV recently and not knowing anything about him but being impressed with his songs and performance,purchased this very well priced collection.I was not dissapointed and am thoroughly enjoying this collection.It is tempting me to explore more of his catalogue.

The Habsburgs: Embodying Empire
by Andrew Wheatcroft
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A personal history of a dynasty, 13 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating study of the Habsburg dynasty from a personal angle rather than straight history.My interest was kindled with a recent visit to Vienna and I found this book informative and illuminating.Well written with interesting illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb recording of superb concert, 29 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was tempted to by the Vinyl edition but decided on this at about a third of the cost-the sound is amazing and shows that 1950,s recordings at their best can compare to anything on the marhet.Great performance from Belafonte and the orchestra.Highlt recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain Audio Vinyl, 29 Sept. 2014

Not the best numbers from his canon, but anything by Sonny Boy is worth having.Produced by Speakers Corner this is half the price of their usual LP,s and sounds great.

I purchased this as I am interested in Spanish History especially the civil war and have visited Madrid & Valencia several times. Unfortunately,although I persevered with the book it turned out to be a not very well written womans romance-I have not continued with the sequel.

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality reproductions with many datails of paintings, 28 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Velazquez (Big Art) (Paperback)
I already own a book by the author on Velasquez but it is quite old and I felt that a more modern Taschen book would have better quality prints-It does and concentrates on details of various paintings which really illuminate the artist.The copy I purchased is an ex library book in very good condition. Very informative and interesting text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice laid back blues, 20 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hoodoo [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Tony Joe sounding much as he did in 1968 when I bought his first album.The production on this album is "muddier" than on his earlier recordings but it suits the style of swamp blues.A great album which sits very comfortably with my other laid back J J cale etc. section,

5.0 out of 5 stars beautifully packaged and recorded music, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gershwin: Piano Works (Audio CD)
Really entertaining collection containing Rhapsody in blue and American in Paris transcribed for solo piano,preludes and a song book containing fairly short piano versions of many of his well known numbers.The playing and recording are first class-I am so glad I purchased this.
