Linkin Park - Coup D'Etat [2x DVD] [2009]
Linkin Park - Coup D'Etat [2x DVD] [2009]
Dvd ~ Linkin Park
Price: 5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Product at An Excellent Price, 12 Feb 2014
The 2 discs that make up this set paint a fairly good picture of Linkin Park and for fans of the band is a welcome addition to any collection. It is all documentary and not a music concert, so if its a live show you are after look elsewhere, but it is very nicely packaged in a large fold out digipac cover and includes lots of great pics etc, and the films themselves are the kind of thing you might catch late night on VH1 or MTV. For little more than a fiver for all this, what's not to like?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Collection, 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Singles [2CD] (Audio CD)
In a word or two, all the hits ( and a couple of misses) are here and so this is an ideal compilation for anyone who loves the Jaxx sound but who has not collected all their individual albums over the years. I have a few 12" singles but this collection fills all the gaps for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Marvellous Recording, 20 April 2012
This review is from: Standard Time (Audio CD)
This illustrates how, even after some 35 years in the game (at he time this show was recorded), MJQ remain the quintessential jazz ensemble in the world. Simply breathtaking.

2.0 out of 5 stars A true disappointment!, 20 April 2012
This review is from: North (Audio CD)
Having been a Costello fan since day one, I've tried hard to like this record but now must admit it is my least favourite of Elvis's albums and I doubt I will play it much from here on.
It's a shame as Ive liked to a greater or lesser degree everything else he's done but this one just didn't work for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best album of 2011!, 20 April 2012
This review is from: 50 Words for Snow (Audio CD)
Quite simply Kate's best record since 'Hounds Of Love'. If you haven't got it yet and like any of the girl's tunes, do yourself a favour and pick this up now - you will not be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Jazz Christmas Comp, 20 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're as fed up as most of us of hearing the same festive songs again and again, stick this CD on at Christmas and everyone from Grandma to the youngsters, via the dog, will be in seventh heaven by lunchtime. Quite simply a marvelous collection which made Christmas 2011 a special treat in our house!.


No Title Available

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Live Recording, 20 April 2012
While the sound here is not of course up to modern digital standards, it must be remembered that this is an FM Radio Broadcast from the early 1970s and some license should be given with that in mind. But it still sounds good and is a quite remarkable historical document of Randy's live performances of the time. In my view too it is head and shoulders above the original 'Randy Newman Live' set from a year later which runs at less than 30 minutes and on which the sound is certainly no better than on this recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Companion To Volume 1, 31 Oct 2011
I didn't think the second series of this remarkable TV series could beat the first for pure entertainment, but despite that box having 6 discs and this one only 2, the series really gets into its stride this time round, and Elvis surpasses his easy going but hysterical presentation style, to the extent that if Jools Holland ever retries Elvis would make a perfect replacement . This set warrants numerous repeat plays and for me the best episode is the one which features Nick Lowe, Richard Thompson, Alan Toussaint and The Band's Levon Helm doing what they all do best. Priceless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Superb!, 9 April 2011
This review is from: Sonic Sci-Fi (Audio CD)
Includes some of the finest movie soundtrack music ever recorded. Bernhard Herrman and the Barrons are the absolute masters and if you're not all that familiar with their work this is the CD for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars As It Says On The Tin!, 9 April 2011
This review is from: The Lowdown (Audio CD)
Im resonding to the reviewer here who tels us 'i didnt know that there was no music i was very disappointed with this purchase.i would of liked to know that is was just interviews'. Where do these people come from? All you need do is read the front cover [and even if you're a tad short-sighted it is easily enlarged] and what are we informed there - oh yes, it says: ' 2CD Biogrphy and Interview Set' Prhaps the brain of britain here read that and preumed it was George's new album that doesn't even have a release date yet...easy mistake to make i'm sure...

So, let's start again, it is a collection of interviws with George on one disc and a spoken work biography of his life on the other - and it's pretty good.

thank you and goodnight!
