The player in the photo heading the ball is Tom Soares, and having seen him play, I can assure you he is no IAN WRIGHT!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Glen Compilation, 5 Sept. 2008
If you want to buy a Glen Campbell "Greatest Hits" look no further than this superb collection, which provides a few surprise bonuses as well once you listen (i.e. Less of Me - superb early acoustic recording). All the classics are included - "Galveston", "Wichita Lineman", "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" etc plus duet with Bobbie Gentry. The only criticism i would make is the omission of "Both Sides Now" & "Don't Pull Your Love Out" (maybe they weren't Capitol recordings), but then there is an extensive back catalogue to choose from. An essential cd for anyone's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent, His Best Yet., 5 Sept. 2008
I have bought Teddy's stuff previously having chanced upon his first album. Some of his songs are very melancholy to say the least and not the sort of thing to hear when you're on a 'downer'. However, he does have a fantastic voice and has written some beautiful stuff. This new album still has some melancholic lyrics but is allied to some really upbeat tunes. The style/genre encompasses country rock, pop, rock 'n' roll and pure country ; and his voice and lyrics recall artists such as Chris Isaak, Johnny Cash, and Elvis. Stand out tracks are the single "In My Arms" (great pop), "Can't Sing Straight" (Isaak/Cash style rock, great use of horns), "Don't Know What I was Thinking" (pretty country). All in all a great Saturday night record (before going out) or good for driving in the car. One of the albums of the year, play it loud.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid return by the old man, 5 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Meet Glen Campbell (Audio CD)
This is a surprisingly strong return, given that Mr Campbell is apparently now 72 and has had well documented problems of late. However, his voice holds up well especially given the material and atists he is covering (Travis, Tom Petty (x2), U2, Foo Fighters, The Replacements, Velvet Underground, Jackson Browne). The production is akin to some of his old recordings in his heyday. I agree that this works better for him - more than if he'd gone down the "Rick Rubin acoustic/pared back" route that suited Messrs. Cash and Diamond so much. Some of the tracks grow on you more with several plays [esp "Jesus" (Reed), "Grow Old With Me" (Lennon)]. For me the best are "Sadly Beautiful" (The Replacements) and Jackson Browne's "These Days". Of course this won't ever compare with those fantastic Jimmy Webb songs, but nonetheless an album worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent, 4 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Magic (Audio CD)
I was a bit worried that this latest reunion with the E Street Band might be a turgid affair, but I needn't have......they are all back in superb form. Unlike other Bruce fans, I really loved "Devils And Dust" (in fact it's probably my favourite Boss album of all)- but it's great to see this line up back together stronger than ever. Some of the tracks would not be out of place on "The River" or "Born In The USA". The lyrics are hard bitten but the music rocks along with a light touch. Standouts so far for me are the stirring opener "Radio Nowhere" which gets better with every listen, "Livin In The Future" (a cross between "10th Avenue Freeze-Out" & "Hungry Heart"), "Girls In Their Summer Clothes" (glorious slice of Summer pop) & "Long Walk Home" (epic slow burner). There isn't a weak track. Buy. Listen Loud. Enjoy.
