This review is from: Proud (Audio CD)
There have been two great non-classical female singing voices in the past 60 years, one was Shirley Bassey and the other is Heather Small. You can listen to mediocrity or you can listen to talent. Highly recommended!

The Great Western Beach

Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Book., 3 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this book, as I have the other two by Emma Smith (Green As Grass and Maidens' Trip). Most of Emma Smith's writings refer to a period before I was born, a period I would have liked to experience for myself. So this is the attraction for me, to live it through the eyes of someone who can convey a first hand account. I find this type of book very enjoyable, but obviously not everyone's cup of tea.

5.0 out of 5 stars George Gershwin & Woody Allen, Two Great Talents., 27 Oct. 2014

This original soundtrack to the movie Manhattan is just superb. Apart from a great movie it highlights what a genius Gershwin was. I never tire of listening to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Woody Allen, 27 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Manhattan [DVD] [1979] (DVD)
Everything about this film is sublime, one of Woody Allen's best in my humble opinion. The soundtrack of Gershwin compositions is superbly crafted into each scene. The storyline is one of relationships, as with many of Allen's films, eternal triangles and the universal conflict between love and lust. I really thought that Mariel Hemingway (Tracy) was excellent and thoroughly deserved her Oscar nomination. Earlier reviews have gone into more detail of the storyline, so I will just say that I think the ending from where Isaac (Allen) while repeating into a recording machine reasons why life is worth living suddenly says "Tracy's face", to the end of the movie where Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" comes in, is worth seeing over & over again. It's a film you have to see many times to fully appreciate its brilliance.

Love anything with Jane Hylton in. Deserved more high profile parts. Entertaining early fifties mild entertainment. Interesting characters, including a young amusing Dora Bryan.

A lovely series, great settings, beautiful scenery and so funny! Griff, Dara and Rory gel together so well. They meet lots of interesting people along the way, non more so than the very talented David Gilmore while rowing down the Thames. Highly recommended viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 1 Jun. 2013

For me Shirley Bassey has a voice unsurpassed in popular music. There is no female singer around in the last fifty years to touch her. A brilliant powewrfull voice with a superb range. Forget Tina Turner Shirley is simply the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album Once More from A True Talent., 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dylan & The Dead (Audio CD)
Dylan is just a talent superior to anything around. Although this is a collaboration with the "Gratefull Dead" covering songs by Dylan, its a suberbly produced album and should be in any true lover of rock musics collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dreadfull!, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because I'm a fan of Stanley Baker, but the storyline is predictable and acting and direction I thought poor. Its a British film with American overtones. There were many British B pictures around this time on low budgets attempting to produce American type crime thrillers that were just corny and consigned to history. Its undertandable that this was the first time I had seen this film as it is almost embarassing to watch at times. Its one of those fifties films where the main villain is called Johnny, I wonder why!
