5.0 out of 5 stars NMA COMPILED., 15 April 2016

This review is from: Lost Songs (Audio CD)
I am always dubious of collections pulling together 'odds 'n' sods' but this is truly the exception to the rule - it is superb.

One fellow reviewer said it was one of his favourite NMA albums and I entirely get where he's coming from. Despite the songs being cherry picked from different eras, the whole package hangs together very well. The material is excellent throughout and I can say hand on heart that there are no duff tracks or filler here. A worthy purchase.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars SO APPALLING IT'S GOOD!, 15 April 2016
For those of you old enough to remember, Portsmouth Sinfonia was set up by a group of students who couldn't really play their instruments. The results were hilarious, the standard of musicianship being akin to a poor secondary school orchestra.

Such was the cult of this motley band of musicians that Brian Eno came on board with the project and they played the Royal Albert Hall!

I keep a copy and play it in my shop to tease the classical music buffs - hearing is believing!

Tracks are thus:

From Peer Gynt Suite No. 1: "Morning" 3:23
From Peer Gynt Suite No. 1: "In The Hall Of The Mountain King" 3:00
From The Nutcracker Suite: "Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy" 2:18
From The Nutcracker Suite: "Waltz Of The Flowers" 4:05
Fifth Symphony In C Minor, Op. 67 6:18
William Tell Overture 2:00
Also Sprach Zarathustra Op. 31 2:06
Blue Danube Waltz Op. 314 4:36
"Air" From Suite No. 3 In D Major 4:37
"Farandole" From L'Arlesienne Suite No. 2 4:05
"Jupiter" From The Planets, Op. 32 (Excerpt)

5/5 for humour 1/5 for musicianship!

5.0 out of 5 stars ROCKABILLY GEMS, 13 April 2016
This is a fabulous collection pulling together 50 original Rockabilly gems from a treasured era.

Many are very familiar. However, there are a few odd gems here which rarely surface on these collections.

A great compilation and worthy intro to this era and genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars NMA'S RENAISSANCE, 9 April 2016
'Between Dog and Wolf' heralded a brand new direction for NMA.

This band, which refuses to be defined by any genre, has shown that it still has something immensely special to offer us - tribal drums, primitive sounds, great lyrics and Justin's passionate vocals combine to make for a staggeringly good album.

'Between Dog and Wolf' is a renaissance; a rebirth for NMA and a shot in the arm for their fans - very clever, very special and above all, extremely enjoyable.
