4.0 out of 5 stars Always astounds me, 7 Feb 2008
This review is from: The Donkeys (Paperback)
Alan Clark (loathed) writes this piece and is the last person you would think of criticising the generals .
But this is what you get and it is as good an indictment you will get .

It is not written by some anti war revisionist but somebody who sees it for what it is.

The arguement that the archives are now open does not wash with me ,there is far to much evidence.

Read a genuine letter recently after the Battle of Loos and the quote was ''our artillery failed to break the wire ,same old problem as before''

So why was the same tactic used at the Somme .

This book is a triumph.

5.0 out of 5 stars accountant free music, 27 Nov 2006
It is being put about that this is not a career retrospective but it is .I think deep down that some kind of retrospective has been discussed but contractual problemns have barred anything getting out .So what we have here though is Waits going over old ground reploughing and fertilising it ,touching on everything right back to Closing Time .The harvest and yield of this album though, is outstanding.'

It reminds me of the first album I got 'Swordfishtrombones, and discovering one of the best back catalogues in music .

He has in my opinion ,delivered one of the finest albums ever made here .

Waits and Dylan at the moment, are holding the bowling balls ,the rest I'm afraid ,are the pins.

Credit also to his record company for allowing artistic freedom.

3.0 out of 5 stars innaresting, 9 May 2005
This in a way is an excellent account of Neil Young, but it is spoiled at times by the authors opinions on certain albums,certain concerts and certain people around the subject. I do detect a hint of jealousy insofar as he is not part of the inner circle.
Apart from this it is a great book about Neil Young ,meticolously put together and recalling the major things that happened in his life.
If you are a Neil Young fan you will love this book and some of the more obscure recordings to me, seem to make sense now .

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning musical piece, 9 Oct 2004
This review is from: Real Gone (Audio CD)
>This album is this mavericks best by a long way and in no way does it lower the quality of all the previous albums.
It just goes to show give, the artist creative control and look at the result.
We are in a world where music is trivialised ,used, bended and extorted by TV executives.
You will not hear this on the radio,this is art ,this is for the people who are quite prepared to have there head and emotions shaken .
