5.0 out of 5 stars NOT too short for the charts, 9 April 2013
The NME yesterday reported...
Contrary to popular belief, the Judy Garland version of the song is not too short to be chart eligible with the Official Chart Company stating that: "Three versions of the song are currently figuring in the Top 200 - Judy Garland's version at 54, Ella Fitzgerald's 1961 cover is at 146 and the Munchkins' version at 183."

5.0 out of 5 stars this version is fine..., 16 Feb 2013
the Amazon MP3 version entitled "This Is Fats Domino (Original Album Plus Bonus Tracks, 1957)" (blue cover artwork) has the tracks at the correct speed and the sound quality is good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent debut, 23 Aug 2010
This review is from: Outatime (Audio CD)
Ryker Sear's debut straddles the pop/rock borderline with a host of catchy tunes and infectious hooks.
Female vocals (lyrics mainly of the love lost/love found variety but delivered with conviction) and a band that wears its diverse influences lightly. I'm sure I heard some Steve Jones-esque power chords in there and a Small Faces organ sound whereas at other times there is a contemporary pop feel to some of the tracks.
In all a highly promising collection of songs that makes Ryker Sear a name to watch out for in the years to come.

1.0 out of 5 stars This may be a good kettle..., 13 Aug 2010
But we didn't get as far as boiling any water.

The item is described as cream in colour and the picture on the box shows a nice pale kettle but it is actually a much stronger shade of buttery-yellow which doesn't match our other kitchen accessories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the Beatles' best, 7 Oct 2007
As others have said, this is far from being the group's best work.
Compared to Revolver, the White Album (or even Hard Day's Night, on it's own terms) Sgt Pepper would rate maybe 3.5 stars.
BUT compared to the output of most other groups and some of the 5-star ratings earned by lesser albums here on Amazon then this one goes up to eleven!
One final thing to correct something in an earlier review - Brian Wilson's Pet Sounds was inspired by Rubber Soul and not this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars At long last!, 4 Feb 2006
I've been waiting for this album for about a quarter of a century, ever since I heard the first Delta 5 session on the John Peel show.
For the uninitiated, the Delta 5 were from West Yorks, were mates of the Gang of Four and were notable for having a line-up containing two female bassists.
The sound is not unlike the Go4 but lyrics not as overtly political and of course female vocals make a difference.
I can't recommend this enough.
