4.0 out of 5 stars What a bargain, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First up no comments re lack of lyrics etc, put simply 5 discs for around £3each from one of greatest singers in last 40 years BARGAIN..... Biggest attraction is the inclusion of Evangeline and Thirteen two albums never released on CD before. Out of five Roses in the snow &White Shoes are 5's, all the others get 4 --- quite simply this is a must buy for anyone who loves great singing with impeccable song choices and top drawer instrumentation, all of country music from bluegrass to modern is here

5.0 out of 5 stars Two great ladies having fun making a great album, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dos Divas (Audio CD)
Got to be honest I wasn't sure what to expect - always liked Pamela Tillis more than Lorrie Morgan but they make great duo. The other reviews pretty much say it all. - do late to the adlibbing on the fad of what was I thinking, the ghost of Bobbie Gentry stalks bles their hearts but it's the quality of song choice, the band and the sheer pleasure the two ladies are clearly having that makes this one of the best things I've hears this year. RECOMMENDEED

4.0 out of 5 stars Please Lari give us more, 30 July 2013
This review is from: Green Eyed Soul (Audio CD)
Sad to say it,s taken so long to write this. This came out around the same time that Shelby Lynne shook things up. Sad to say this wonderful, soulful record got ignored. Like one reviewer I had heard her country stuff, pleasant but nothing special but this really is a timeless lost classic country/soul and a little bit of every other genre topped with classy soulful vocals He'll for£4.00 or so I,m tempted to buy. Second copy!! Please please a follow up is so overdue

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine tribute to a great songwriter, 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Small Town Talk (Audio CD)
Firstly a confession until this album not a huge Shannon fan but Bobby Charles? One of the great songwriters. His songs suit Shannon's voice to perfection and the band nails it ....... There,s a vibe and a groove to this that is hard to beat. If you haven,t heard any of the ordinals WHY??? Your ears deserve a treat, Bobby was right up there with Dr John, Dann Penn and John Fogerty. If you can't find BCs origianl albums this is as close as it gets it really is that good

5.0 out of 5 stars What modern Motown could have been, 20 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lady (Audio CD)
So many soul albums slip past without comment or any notice, please do not let this happen to this one. From the first few bars of the openning track it's clear where the roots lie and makes you want to dig out all of the classic Motown sounds.

Buy this and while you're at it try and track down the Queen Emily CD - classic stax soul from this decade!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A disgrace it hasn't been on CD till now, 21 Feb 2013
This review is from: The Show Must Go On (Audio CD)
As first two reviews say up there with the absolute very best soul albums of all time. I actually had my vinyl copy transferred to CD years ago but when Atalntic/Rhino released this as part of thier 30 great soul box set I couldn't resist Listen, enjopy and ask what happened to soul like this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better, 13 Feb 2013
Not a bad pick but if you can get hold of the whole concert do so - Apologies but the only "bad" act on it is Kayne West - never got him and after hearing him on this don't think I will

This isn't bad as a taster but that's all. Really must see Alicia Keyes live........

Ignore the 1 star review this is fantastic value for money -- looks good and really it isn't that heavy. I have a Rado, Omega and a Lasalle - all presents and in their way great watches and this one doesn't look out of place

4.0 out of 5 stars Well I am a fan and not quite a five but definately a four star, 12 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rod: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
Gotta give Rod creditafter Keith Richards book this an entertaining and well written book, it's certainly more honest about his musical shortcomings than many other such books and when he writes about the (many) loves of his life he shows he has real respect and feelings for the more permanent fixtures in his life. All in all a book to enjoy if you are a fan or not

5.0 out of 5 stars At last Sam Dees on CD, 4 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Totally agree with the first review but unlike Mike "The Show must Go On" by Sam Dees has been right up there with the great soul albums since its release - still as magnificent and moody as the day it came out - TRUE VALUE FOR MONEY for once.

PS -- There are a good few other classics in there as well!!!!!!!!!!!
