Read somewhere that sean loved this movie and it shows - great cast and beautifully scipted. I found the DVD very poor quality BUT Warner Bros have done a super job on the BLU RAY and yes it is region free. Buy and enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget the "it's not accurate" complaint- it is entertaining, 17 Aug. 2011

On the premise that a movie should first of all entertain this got 5 stars from me when it came out and now it's on Blu ray the quality deserves another 5 stars. I got the US Import which is region free so go on and treat yourself

4.0 out of 5 stars Takes me back, 11 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Standing on the Rooftop (Audio CD)
Funny old album, I saw Madeleine years ago when she was busking in Paris - there was a magic offbeat quality that had slightly sliped away on her albums BUT this shows signs off a getting that spirit back while still showing off that wonderful voice. Love in Vain is a superb version...... The only thing she needs to tighten up on is the the standard of her song writing. It's nice to hear/see a talented young(ish) singer doing it the way they want to. Listen with an open mind and you'll be pleasently surprised

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghost writer a lost classic, 5 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all compliments once again to RAVEN for a superb job in (a) digging up these albums and (b) quality of the discs. I heard Ghost Writer the year after it's original release in a little Parisien Bar of Rue St Dennis.......... Spanish Town and I may not be your kind bacame and remain to of my all time favourites but the whole album has a unique sound and quality - on it's own I'd give it 5+ but the other two don't quite match it's quality. Garland should have been much bnigger star than he was and it's good to hear he's back on the road with a new album, try this one for size

4.0 out of 5 stars The best he ever made BUt, 4 May 2011
This review is from: High Life (Audio CD)
The original mix is now available on the new box set of his albums - It's a five star job and shows how stupid the record company was not to stick with it, it would have made the greatest British R'nB/blues singer of his generation a world star

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Britains greatest every singers, 3 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hmm well done Chrysalis for releasing this set at such a price, BUT it's not as advertised "the complete recordings" the albums came out with additional live and demo recordings added so I knock off a star. Still, simply for the previously unreleased mix of High Life I was tempted to give it the full FIVE - Why oh why wasn't this mix the one that was released, it is one of the most soulful albums you'll ever hear - One of Allan toussaints best productions with tremendous horn arrangements that push Frankie to the heights. If you don't hav any of his albums buy this and enjoy, if you do the albums for £11.00 it's worth buying simply for the High Life mix mentioned above. GOD FRANKIE YOU WERE GREAT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still wonderful after all these years, 2 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hard Bargain (Audio CD)
This was an album I was dreading after reading the reviews in UK music papers. Gotta say they were so wrong. This isn't Emmylou's easiest listen but with every play it reveals more of itself and rewards the listener with little surprises. Six White Cadillacs bugged the hell out of me then I listened to some Springsteen out-takes and his influence jumped out, My Name is Emmett Till is totally different from the Dylan song but no less powerful
, and as for Lonely Girl -- if you are lonley Emmy I'm waiting for your call!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome return, 14 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hmm as said a welcome return but the strange thing is this isn't his best work or even his best solo work BUT to me it's one of the most enjoyable albums I've heard in along time. Don't know why that should be but it sounds as if he's enjoying himself and the tracks with Clapton hold up well.......... one to be judged on a very personal level
