Himmeltrĉ
Himmeltrĉ
by Pastor Per Grunnet
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.64

5.0 out of 5 stars Where it all began and then some, 25 Nov 2012
This review is from: Himmeltrĉ (Paperback)
If you are already familiar with Pastor Per Grunnets publications and enjoyed his CD "The Martyrdom of Saint Margaret", this book will be of great interest to you. It contains his earliest poetical works of which some are in Danish, while others are in English. If you are unfamiliar with Pastor Per Grunnet, I suggest you check out his CD first. Yet, if you liked the CD and you are hungry for more, this is the book to get!


From the Closed World to the Infinite Universe (Forgotten Books)
From the Closed World to the Infinite Universe (Forgotten Books)
by Alexandre Koyré
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.14

2.0 out of 5 stars Awesome work, Terrible edition, 31 Dec 2010
The book "From the Closed World to the Infinite Universe" by Alexandre Koyré is nothing short of a masterpiece. It is a book you will want read and most likely re-read. But take care which edition you buy. Some editions have the original formatting, which is great while others have a new and very poor formatting.

The edition published by Forgotten Books has the new poor formatting (From the Closed World to the Infinite Universe (Forgotten Books)). It therefore is a tiresome read. Koyré makes extensive use of quotations from original source material and the poor formatting makes it very hard to tell where a quotation begins and where it ends. Also all the original italics have been removed! Thus you cannot tell which words Koyré wanted to emphasize. Furthermore the Forgotten Books edition does not have an index.

The edition you will want to buy is the one published by The Johns Hopkins University (From the Closed World to the Infinite Universe (Hideyo Noguchi Lecture)). The Johns Hopkins University edition contains the original formatting. It is thus easy to see where quotations begin and end, all original italics are preserved and it has an index.

To sum up: You should buy the The Johns Hopkins University edition. Yet, if that edition cannot be bought neither new nor used, then you should buy the Forgotten Books edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value for your money, but cheap boxing, 28 Oct 2010
This is all the episodes and and at a cheap price! This also means, however, that the boxing is cheap. Most of all you will notice the lack of a season guide.
But then again, if you simply want the entire series with ALL the specials, then this is the affordable way to go.

One star withheld for cheap boxing
Four stars given for great content at a great price!

5.0 out of 5 stars An impressive release, 12 May 2005
This review is from: Barabajagal (Audio CD)
This EMI remastered version of the album "Barabajagal" is truly a release of the previously unreleased if I ever saw one! No less than 13 previously unreleased tracks are featured on this CD. Some of them are alternative versions of already released songs (e.g. "New Years Resolution"), but some of them is material, which has not been released ever before. An example of that is the song "Stromberg Twins", which was originally meant for "Barabajagal", but never made it unto the record. Or the amazing songs "Little White Flower" and "Lord of the Universe", which have gone unreleased until now. Strange, but true.
But in ones excitement about all the previously unreleased material on this CD one should not forget "Barabajagal" itself. "Barabajagal" is very much a worthwhile album to lend an ear. From the upbeat hills of "Superlungs My Supergirl" and "Barabajagal" to the introspective seashore of "Happiness Runs" and "To Susan On the West Coast Waiting" this album addresses a wide spectrum of moods and insights.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great buy for Donovan novices and collectors alike, 12 May 2005
This review is from: The Hurdy Gurdy Man (Audio CD)
This EMI remastered version of the album "The Hurdy Gurdy Man" is a great buy for Donovan novices and collectors alike. For novices because it will buy them a great Donovan album of deeply meditative and highly playful songs, which all lovers of music deserve to hear.
For collectors of Donovan this release is also a great buy because it contains "Aye my love" and "What a Beautiful Creature You Are". The song "Aye my love" has not, as far as I know, been released since back in 1968 where it came out in the US on a single together with "Lalena". The atmosphere of "Aye my love" is alike to that of "Poor Cow", so if you liked that song you need to hear "Aye my love".
"What a Beautiful Creature You Are" has never been released before, which is a pity since it is catchy earful for sure! It is a highly humorous tune, which if anything reminds me of "The Intergalactic Laxative" from Donovan's "Cosmic Wheels" album. Yes, it is that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lady of the Stars, 23 Sep 2002
A very nice album indeed. It was originally published under the name "Lady of the Stars", but has for some odd reason now been given the name "Forever Gold". Yet, even though the name has been changed the content is unchanged and well worth listening to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music for Small and Big People Alike, 23 Sep 2002
This review is from: Pied Piper (Audio CD)
Pied Piper is a very fine album. It belongs with albums such as "HMS Donovan" and "A Gift from a Flower to a Garden". On the "Pied Piper" CD you even find, published for the first time, a tune (People Call Me the Piped Piper) from the sadly little known 70ties movie "The Pied Piper" in which Donovan played the Pied Piper himself. Many of the tunes (e.g. Colours) have been rearranged, which is why this CD is not to be bought as a "Greatest Hits" compilation. It is a new CD in its own right.
