4.0 out of 5 stars Background is a glimpse into West Ken in the 70s, story a trial against the odds, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Moonlighting [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Apart from another class performance by Jeremy Irons and a story of poor foreigners struggling to make a living in London, it is a record of the area around the old Lyons in West Ken/Hammersmith and so a cinematic memory of the area for all who lived there then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Night Train to Lisbon, 14 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Night Train to Lisbon (Paperback)
A brilliant book, poignant, beautifully written, unusual, sort of detective story discovering characters under the Salazar regime, but without violence in present time, what can lift an ordinary person to do extraordinary things.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Choir, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I only bought it to help the Choir, the charity, to get the recording more known and getting the cause more known; a great effort but not my thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Paine, 2 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What this man achieved for civilisation and human rights is almost unbelievable as he lived through revolutions, frequently on the protesting side, in France, in England and in the USA, and somehow lived to be in his seventies. Trevor Griffiths' play is a must see.


I Found My Horn: One Man's Struggle With The Orchestra's Most Difficult Instrument
I Found My Horn: One Man's Struggle With The Orchestra's Most Difficult Instrument
by Jasper Rees
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should find their horn, 2 Dec. 2013

It's a wonderful feel good story, and it transferred just as good - perhaps even more movingly to the Hampstead Theatre stage. Could inspire anyone to go and DO THEIR THING.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oldish Carmen recording, 2 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bizet: Carmen (Audio CD)
The music is marvellous for all tastes, those who love opera and those who know nothing about it, and this recording by oldies is tops.

This review is from: Crosby, Stills And Nash (Audio CD)
I'd just been to their RAH concert which was terrific.
Then bought this CD which took me back to first hearing them, under the influence, and they're still great. All varied music and great words.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lou Reed's "Best of" CD, 2 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only the first two tracks were terrific. Realise that I liked the man and his views and his music is unmusical, although a few songs have good words. A CD good for his lifelong fans, not to introduce anyone to him. I recorded a few tracks I liked and then gave the CD to a Lou Reed fan.

It was and is wonderful, arrived on time, good quality, and how can one not love listening to Mrs. Barenboim, as she was at the time?!

3.0 out of 5 stars Metcalfe's The Inner Line, 29 Oct. 2013

Not being able to find this CD to try out in Kensington Library, and wanting to hear a track used in our ballet class, I took a chance and ordered this CD, from Zurich. Turned out to be a somewhat expensive mistake as the track I had heard and enjoyed was the only one on the CD that I really liked. Some of the others are OK background music but not what I'd hoped for.
Also, the CD took 3 weeks to arrive.
