A People's History of the New Boston
A People's History of the New Boston
by Jim Vrabel
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.58

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an extremely good book that is very well researched, 14 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an extremely good book that is very well researched. Written with clarity and an engaging style, the author paints a vivid picture of the times and manages to maintain enough distance to avoid overt partisanship. Local histories can be parochial and amateurish in style and delivery, but this is a very different kind of local history book. It is a wonderful snapshot of a unique time in the social relations of a great city. If only there were more books like this....

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant highlights make up for weaker tracks, 2 Jun 2014

This review is from: Step Inside My Soul (Audio CD)
Now one of my favourite compilations. Not all the tracks are of the same high quality but the standout tracks more than make up for this. The opening song by Mojoba is just brilliant and it is worth buying the album for this alone. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be in every soulheads' collection, 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've got this album on cd and vinyl and love it more each time it's played. Deserves much more awareness and is a snapshot of a key period in the development of American soul music. The vinyl album is sold by Amazon at an amazing price - buy it while you still can.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly great, 2 Jun 2014

A worthy addition to any collection. When he hits tom form, Rance sings the most wonderful gospel infused soul. For me, at its best, this is what Southern soul is all about. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius!, 29 Nov 2013

Total peace of mind. This is now permanently in my bag. It is just a brilliant bit of kit. I love the fact you don't have to keep on recharging it. It's big and powerful but not cumbersome. And it's a doddle to use. I'm really impressed. Very highly recommended.

Highly recommended. It looks like a pretty ordinary piece of kit. Once you use it, it's absolutely brilliant. Have no idea why these aren't on sale more widely. Every home should have one. Brilliant product, great price!


Ironic Technics
Ironic Technics
by Don Ihde
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Struggles to achieve a clear focus, 22 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ironic Technics (Paperback)
This is a small volume and could be seen as a great way to get an insight into Don Ihde's work and ideas. I found it quite fragmented and lacking the depth needed to really get under the skin of the author's ideas. It's probably a bit too much of halfway house - neither a concise summary nor a narrow but detailed focus. It tends to ramble and this contributes to a disconnected feel. A shame really because the author has some brilliant ideas that deserve to be accessible.
