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!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Could be called the Very best of Ireland, 30 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For anybody who hasn't heard of Mary Coughlan buy this - the range and emotion in her voice puts her in a class of her own, in particular the live disc captures everything good about great singers. Been lucky to see her several times and she has never disppointed - her book is worth a read as well

5.0 out of 5 stars Shame you can't give it ten stars, 10 Sept. 2012
Okay it isn't a great book in a purely literary sense BUT it is a pretty damm good expose of one of the most bigotted, arrogant and monsterous institutions ever to exist in a footballing context, the mighty Gers have been a blight and hinderance on scottish Football for years but the Scottish Football Media have been to in thrawl of them to speak out. Shame on them and good luk to the Tax Man, ironic the "loyal Royal Blues" pinching fdrom her majesty..........

4.0 out of 5 stars If they can give McCartney a Knighthood what about Ray Davies??, 14 Aug. 2012
Okay I've only given this four stars because it is just another compilation but at least there are some of Ray's solo stuff here. Personally growing up Waterloo Sunset, Victoria, All day and all of the night etc were, in my opinion, at LEAST as good as anything The Beatles or Stomes released, Ray Davies is truly one of the greatest songwriters ever and anybody looking for a starter can do a lot worse. One song missing though is the mightl Celluloid Heroes - check it out guys and become Dedicated followers of fashion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Real heartfelt country, 6 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: His and Hers (Audio CD)
Have loved this pair since the first album, she has a terrific voice that has hints of Emmylou and also Dolly Parton and I've only knocked off a star because hubby signs too many of the songs!! Not that he's a bad singer but she is a truly great vacalist.

Interesting comments about The Bible & the Belt - needs to be heard afew times to truly understand the song - personally I think it's a terrific comment on getting the balance right in raising your kids.

All in all a joy to hear and sure beats the crap out of some of the "modern" country bands

4.0 out of 5 stars The real Joss Stone, 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After a few patchy years if there is any justice this album will re-establish the lady as one of music's brightest talents. This is the sound of a mature and confident singer doing justice to some truly greta old sould songs.

In my opinion her vocal on JD Loudermilks "then you can tell me goodbye" is the best she has ever put down and shows just how greta a singer she can be. Another delight is hearing the guitar of the legendary Ernie Islay on most of the tracks

Wellcome back Ms Stone

5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody SHOULD be talkin', 23 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Everybody's Talkin' (Audio CD)
about this magnificent band and this album. Been a fan of Susan Tedeschi for a long time and was lucky to see Derek Trucks in his days with Clapton.

If your streching the songs out you better be (a) highly musical and (b) do the covers justice

The title track is absolutely 10 star reconstruction of the song and Ms Tedeschi could be mistaken for early Bonnie Raitt, that's how good her vocal is. Darlin' be home soon is one of my all time favouirite Lovin Spoonful songs and a 10 minute version worried me but hey a very soulful vocal and some beautiful guitar work makes it one of the best covers I've heard.

End of the day you'll love it or hate it I suppose but this is one hell of a band and a truly great singer on top form

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Soul Not Blues just truly GREAT, 31 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Let It Burn (Audio CD)
First up i haven't been a huge fan but this album is simply one of the most "soulful" things you'll hear all year. There are some greta cover versions/re workings (Ring of Fire is fantastic) but for me her version of one of Robbie Robertsons best songs - It makes no Difference" is simply light years better than any other and in it's own way is close to matching The Bands. A superb duet with Willima Bell brings back happy memories of the great mans best work. If you are in doubt about this album don't be it really is outstanding, i doubt I'll hear anything this good for the rest of the year. For an album close to 50mins in length there are very few duff moments
