Slipless In Settle: A Slow Turn Around Northern Cricket
Slipless In Settle: A Slow Turn Around Northern Cricket

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Funnier Than The Far Corner, 17 July 2010
This is the funniest book I have read in ages, it is Harry Pearson's best by far. I am still laughing out loud about The Geordie Pizza, and the tale about Hitler using Old Spice as a weapon has me in stitches every time I think about it. All the greats in the cricketing world are mentioned with some humility, and the description of David Gower by the author's father is very apt.

Thanks Harry!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Unplugged Gem!, 4 Mar 2009
This review is from: River of Time (Audio CD)
This could be titled 'Stars In My Crown II'. It follows on from his last release effortlessly and covers some forgotten tracks from the Delta bluesmen (Mississippi John Hurt and Rev Gery Davis) and Country star Merle Haggard. Featuring such luminaries as Levon Helm on drums, Larry Campbell on Dobro, Fiddle, Mandolin and Percussion and Barry Mitterhof on Banjo, Mandolin and Guitar, Jorma Kaukonen shows why he was Jerry Garcia's favourite guitarist, and even nods his head to the Grateful Dead by doing a jaunty version of Pigpen's 'Operator'. If you like Acoustic Blues, American Folk and Old-Time music, this is a must!

5.0 out of 5 stars Roots To Branches, 19 Jan 2008
This review is from: Roots to Branches (Audio CD)
To me this is the finest Jetnro Tull album, it mixes all the musical styles they are best at, just listen to Another Harry's Bar and you can see where they are coming from, or Rare and Precious Chain and hear the complexities they are capable of, if you like English Folk or English Music Buy This Album

5.0 out of 5 stars A CD Full of Brilliance, 21 May 2007
This review is from: A Beach Full Of Shells (Audio CD)
Up until listening to this album I would have said that Past, Present and Future was Al Stewart's best, but now I rate A Beach Full of Shells equally. The stories are superb, especially The Immelman Turn (who else could write a song about an air manoeuvre) and Mr Lear. Excellent. I would urge, no, beg everyone to have a copy of this album in their collection.
