1.0 out of 5 stars Shame., 24 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I actually downloaded this app almost two years ago because i find the TLS pretty much required reading. For a while, things went swimmingly. However, I haven't downloaded a copy for a number of weeks now as I seem, of late, to have encountered nothing but problems. To make matters worse, the customer service staff (irony isn't dead, yet) are either totally incompetent or unusually dismissive. Whichever, I've given up caring and shall have to return to reading the hard copy. Shame.

Leave well alone. Does not smell like real Tom Ford. Wear it if you want to be a laughing stock.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Boss!, 22 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An elegiac reflection on past and place, "The Ghosts of Highway 20" is the album Lucinda Williams has bean leading towards for years. Searching, sad, hard as iron lyrics that could only be written by someone who has lived life whilst hanging onto the artistry to describe it, are delivered in the customary drawl that, as one reviewer has already pointed out, you either love or hate. And, all the time, track after track, the peerless backing musicians deliver beautifully spacious playing that only comes with being in complete sympathy with the vocalist and writer. Prepare to feel the hairs on the back of your neck(or wherever!) stand on end at the sound of Bill Frisell's guitar. No fillers, either. You wait for them, expect them on such a long album, but no, every song--including a moving version of Springsteen's "Factory" is worth its place on what is a superb offering. She's the Boss! Worth the wait. Worth every penny.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Sound Quality, 14 Sept. 2015
This review is from: Point Of No Return (MP3 Download)
I'd like to endorse what Stephen Andrews has to say in his review. The version of this album with the original Capitol cover is to be avoided. The sound quality is poor: Sinatra appears to be singing from the other side of a wall, the orchestra from the bottom of a well. Mr Andrews is correct too when he advised me, via his comments,to purchase the version whose cover is that of Sinatra, along with Alex Stordahl in the studio.You only have to compare samples from both versions to hear the sharp difference in quality.
Before I go, I'd just like to say that Mr Andrews criticism of this particular version of a what is without doubt a great recording, raises a problem which Amazon seems unable or unwilling to address, namely their failure to confine reviews to the versions for which they are intended. Mr Stephens'review appears on the sites of both versions so that anyone visiting the Sinatra- Stordahl picture one (the superior version) would have been receiving quite the wrong impression, Of course, this works the other way. Inferior versions take the credits intended for their betters. We all know what that can mean. Time Amazon acted.

1.0 out of 5 stars Who Spilled The Chianti?, 18 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Live In Rome 1979 (MP3 Download)
One of a spate of "Bill Evans Live In Wherever " releases of late, and this one must be just about the worst. Bill can just about be heard above the clink of glasses and smooth sophisticated chatter. All that's missing is the squeak of the toilet door. You get the picture. Was no one present listening? What was Bill even doing in such a place? Who recorded this travesty? Someone needs to speak up about the continued posthumous degrading of a great artist.

No complaints about the sound, that is until it died completely. Had it two years, then nothing....

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong Stuff., 3 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Difficult to come to a sensible evaluation of this box set as there is so much to embrace and i'll leave detailed criticism to those far more expert than myself. But, it strikes me as a brave venture by Sony,over nine hours of music( the type that prompts many to dive for the off button when it comes on Radio 3!) from the last century at a more than reasonable price. A major omission though: that of a booklet offering background on the composers included and explanation of where these compositions belong in the musical landscape. Someone, such as myself, coming to much of this stuff for the first time would appreciate a little guidance. However, so strong has the impression of what I have heard from the first half a dozen CDs i'm prepared to search for such information elsewhere., and though setting forth largely in the dark, I sense it will be a journey well worth embarking on. I look forward to reading much more detailed analysis from others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five and a Half!, 21 May 2015
This review is from: Facing You (MP3 Download)
A big Jarrett fan who came to this album quite late, I was taken aback by what I had been missing and now cannot imagine life without it. Not a single weak track Recorded in the early seventies, this is Jarrett feeling his way towards the future of La Scala, Koln and even, one of my own personal favorites, The Melody At Night With You. All the signs are there. A real treat!

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return to form following a couple of so ..., 3 Oct. 2014
A welcome return to form following a couple of so so albums. But, whoever designed and agreed on the album cover needs sacking. Never mind, what matters is the music.
