Rockin': The Rockabilly Scene

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely essential, 13 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Essentially a photobook, this gives outsiders and fans of the current Rockabilly scene a glimpse of the fans, bands and events that make up the rockin` scene. Great photos, well produced. This is the equivalent of The Teds book from 1979 for old and new rockabilly fans. This book should be in every library in the land. There`s a vibrant musical scene out there and, while it owes a lot to the 1950`s, is very much of today. It`s fun, and in todays pressurised world innocent fun is what we all need. Use this book as a starting point and then discover the music, old and new, on CD, record and DVD. You won`t regret it, once a Rocker always a Rocker. Buy this book now! Hopefully the definitive story of the 1970`s / 1980`s Rockabilly revival will be writen soon, there`s a challenge to authors!!

At last this seris is available on R2 DVD. Very entertaining and kids will enjoy it very much. When will we see Huckleberry Hound,Pixie and Dixie and The Hair Bear bunch on DVD? Buy this DVD now and then explore the other Hanna and Barbera DVD`s that are available via Amazon.

Plenty of match footage. A fitting tribute to the best Rangers player of the last 50 years. Buy it while you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars DOO WOP HEAVEN, 15 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Street Corner Style (Audio CD)
This is, by far, the best modern Doo Wop CD on the market. Sublime singing and great choice of songs. Listen to "Nothing can go wrong". Great uptempo song and much better than the original. This band should be famous if talent is worth anything. Don`t hesitate - buy it now!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars IS THERE MORE IN THE VAULTS?, 28 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great and rare Gene Vincent material in as good a sound quality as possible. Highly recommended to all of Genes fans. Maybe out-takes and demos of the `56 sessions with the original Bluecaps will surface. That would be an historic moment.


Mr. Smith: An Autobiography
Mr. Smith: An Autobiography
by Walter Smith
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars WALTER`S A LEGEND, 28 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great book for all Rangers fans. When Walter`s gone we`ll know his true worth to the Gers. Second only to the legendary Bill Struth. Can Ally do a better job? I hope so, but hope Walter stays for many year. Buy this book and learn about a manager who`s also a fan. 10/10
