Frank Sinatra Sings For Only The Lonely
Frank Sinatra Sings For Only The Lonely
Price: £7.26

5.0 out of 5 stars the Capitol Years albums were easily his best, 22 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As far as I'm concerned, the Capitol Years albums were easily his best. The singing, phrasing and orchestration cannot, and has not been bettered by anybody. Nelson Riddle is again in superlative form on this album, with him and Sinatra fitting together like a hand in a glove. With two extra tracks added on for the cd release (recorded at the next session Sinatra did, so they fit in nicely) the album is great value as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, as fresh as Hammersmith, 20 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So, having bought Hammersmith is it worth getting the RAH. Yes, for the different tracks, as they are all old favourites and they are all performed superbly. Apart from,as mentioned elsewhere, the drummers effort at being a lead singer!. Harmony fine, lead uum, no!!
The bad revues on here regarding the bass pedals are misleading. The acoustics in the RAH are famously ropey (echo), which seemed to particularly resonate with the bass pedals. Compare this recording with the "flatter" sound of Hammersmith. But after the first song the lads on the desk get the levels sorted and the rest of the concert seems fine to me. Yes, the bass pedals are a bit louder than at Hammersmith, but they are only used now and again anyway. But this I found just adds to that big, rich Genesis sound that we all love anyway!! I wouldn't say they were overpowering at all. RAH-nil, mixing desk-won! Overall another superb gig. But if you REALLY don't like base pedals, just buy Hammersmith.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Triumph!!, 11 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just superb!! The musicians he chose are just fine and fitted in their own interpretations while keeping to the original songs, and Steve's in great form. The set list is just perfect, and Steve needn't have fretted about what to leave out. The production is spot-on, and the base pedal balance seems just right to me. An absolute must for any fan of the early/mid seventies variant of Genesis. You won't be disappointed!!!
Because "Seconds Out" was just that bit too early for a quality video, (a shame, as the recording is still awesome after nearly forty years!), songs from the Hackett era need to be filmed for a "Posterity DVD" before it's too late (I.e. Pink Floyd '94, Cream, Rush 30th, Led Zep), as it doesn't look as if the re-union gig is any nearer. This will do very nicely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wrangler re-placement, 19 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are to replace my Wrangler version (of fifteen years!), but it looks as if they don't make them anymore, as I can't find them anywhere on line, so this was a bit of a gamble. But they are very comfortable, with nice soft leather and very light to wear, not "clumpy" at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sqeezy Mop, 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The head is not too big so it can't get into "nooks and cranies". The sqeezing handle mechanism looks flimsy but works well. Being able too easily detach the sponge to wash it through if needed is useful. It does a good job, and wasn't expensive either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bristan Tap, 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
High quality brass and chrome items, well made and finished with a nice modern styling. The underside securing nut is made of brass not plastic, another plus point. With a strong flow after opening the lever only a quarter of a turn they are very easy to use. Coupled with a really good price, I'm very pleased all round with this purchase.

Recommended by my hygenist and better than flossing in my case. These are the best price around at the moment as well. They can be rinsed through and used again and again, so economical as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact Spotlight, 31 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although it's compact, it gives a very good beam, and is sturdily made. It adjusts to any reasonable position, which is very handy, as I need it for various jobs around the house. Although you have to supply your own bulbs, it then gives you the choice of what type to buy. Good wide jaws as well, as I've used it clamped to a door without any problem. Would definitely have another one.
