5.0 out of 5 stars She's So Lucky, 10 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hand Jive (Audio CD)
I sometimes find jazz guitar albums abit hit and miss but this album is extremely melodic and all the musicians contribute to the mix.I can only agree with the comments of the previous reviewer who the praises the fine work of Larry Goldings on ( Jimmy Smith style ) organ and piano and Eddie Harris on tenor sax.Quite bluesy in parts as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tibetan Side of Town, 5 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Slice O Life: Live Solo (Audio CD)
I must admit to not being overly familiar with all of Bruce Cockburns material but from the songs I have heard they transfer beautifully to this solo/unplugged type concept and with the addition of some good audience banter they come across extremely well within the bounds of an intimate atmosphere.Some of his studio work is much better suited to just acoustic guitar and voice. A really enjoyable listen and some great guitar playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightnin/Howlin/Muddy..Oooh Yeah !., 3 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought the entire marvellous collection and they are well worth the money even for just seeing the extraordinary performances of the great Howlin Wolf.Look out for Magic Sam and Skip James on the other volumes.Absolute class and definately no one can borrow them either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alfred Burke., 2 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hard to imagine when there was a great period of television drama/writing that wasn't so glossy, patronizing and mind numbing as it mainly is today.Alfred Burke's performance as the loner Frank Marker must be one of the most underrated and least talked about tour de force acting roles that graced our tv screens in the 1960's and early 70's.Thank goodness someone at least had the good sense to release them on dvd and best of all, no advert interuptions.I'm in heaven !

1.0 out of 5 stars The day the good names of the OGWT and Bob Harris finally sold out., 26 Jun 2010
Oh dear me.What have we got here ?.The good name and happy memories of Bob Harris and the Old Grey Whistle Test finally succums to this blatant piece of lamentable, commercial hijacking.Judee Sill and Tom Waits I can take but most of these tracks have appeared on a hundred different other rock cd compilations.Bob Harris, always known in my book, for seeking out new and aspiring talent for his discerning listeners and has educated me musically for so many years, I hoped would have had second thoughts about giving his name to desperate stuff like this.We have come to expect much better than this from you Bob.Forget this mostly rehashed tracks nonsense of a cd and buy the OGWT dvd's is my advice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ain't no cure for love, 11 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It would be great if other music concerts on dvd were filmed with such thought and immaculate direction.With this one you get a real feel of the atmosphere.No dodgy or dizzying camera work, just pure simple enjoyment and a marvellous back catalogue of Cohens wonderful songs and self depricating humour.Absolute class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revisiting Delon, 9 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There was a marvellous time on television in the 70's when an Alain Delon film was never far from being inexplicably hidden away somewhere in the small hours of late night tv.It is really great to revisit some of those films once again in this fine collection.I regret I did not sometimes show them the respect or appreciation they deserved back then and in comparison seeing them again is an absolute positive relief from the many poor films made today. All 5 films are extremely worthwhile watching.I always find myself somehow drawn into French or any European films more than any other so this set , which are loaded with ' atmosphere ' , are a must if anyone feels likewise.This chap has style a plenty.

5.0 out of 5 stars And keep your knickers on this time !, 4 Dec 2009
This review is from: Spoons: Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
After watching some of the recent extremely poor examples of what passes for tv comedy these days, it is therefore even more unbelievable that this first class quality sketch show never got at the very least a second series.Great performances and terrific writing by all concerned.At least it made it to dvd rather than being lost forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars ' You've got to have a heart before you can have an attack. ', 15 Nov 2009
So said the producer Billy Wilder on the subject of Peter Sellers (on page 906 !!).Well I can't really argue about this not being a comprehensive if totally exhausting insight into the rather twisted world of Sellers as portrayed by Roger Lewis.I think I have just had a dose of the Bluebottle Blues after reading this marathon.Lewis's book is not so much a biography, more a hate filled attempt at character assassination .Just think if Sellers had lived until he was 80 years of age we could have got another 500 pages of the author sticking the proverbial boot in.Perhaps that can only be one good thing about Sellers passing away when he did. So overlong is this biography that I feel as though it has taken me a Sellers lifetime to read it.How many times does the reader need to be reminded that Sellers had a flawed personality ? I think I got the message quite early on in the book thank you Mr.Lewis.Anyhow fortunately this book hasn't diminished my opinion that Sellers was one of Britains finest actors and comedians/mimics and strangely enough I thought that the film based on this book and starring the excellent actor Geoffrey Rush was actually quite compelling.Work that one out Bluebottle nee hee !

5.0 out of 5 stars Ball.Anchor and Chain, 1 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Albion Sunrise (Audio CD)
I'll have to admit that I am way behind with this lot but I found this a fine introduction to their music.For the attractive and fairly low price it's worth buying it just to hear Julie Mathews singing Ball.Anchor and Chain.Not at all a bad selection.
