Ruddigore / Tales from Hoffnung [DVD]
Ruddigore / Tales from Hoffnung [DVD]
Dvd ~ Peter Sellers
Price: £14.58

4.0 out of 5 stars Halas and Batchelor classic cartoons, 29 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Halas and Batchelor was Britain's most influential animation company. These little gems were taken from a BBC series based on the works of Gerard Hoffnung, who was a brilliant cartoonist specialising in musical subjects. Ruddigore was an interesting attempt at making an animated version of the Gilbert and Sullivan opera.
The distinctive H & B style could be seen in many television commercials of the 1950s and 60s some of which can be found on YouTube.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good clear explanations, 29 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always been of the opinion that Linq is an unnecessarily complicated system for accessing databases, text files or other data sources. However I bought this book to enlighten myself. It explains the reasoning behind the development of Linq and, chapter by chapter, outlines the proper usage of the language. It hasn't converted me to use Linq but at least now I have an understanding and have written one or two programs using it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Chinese love song, 29 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This song was always playing on the radio in the early 1950s. It was as popular in the west as it was in the east. Guy Mitchell made an English version of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice song from the 60s, 29 Jun. 2013

Who can forget that Nimble bread commercial featuring a hot air balloon and this song? It was a hit before the commercial and shows the sort of music that was around circa 1963.

I bought this book on impulse. It isn't very big but it is packed with historical information that helped me trace my ancestry.

If you like the Kinks then you probably already have these songs in your collection. If you haven't, why not? Buy this at once!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great short story with a moral, 29 Jun. 2013

Poe at his best. I often wonder how Hammer films managed to make a full length movie from such a short story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Donovan's second single, 29 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mellow Yellow (MP3 Download)
This was the second hit for Donovan. Hmmm... Not so sure it didn't have some sort of druggy undertone. It's a great song anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should own this, 29 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Bluesbreakers were the founders of British blues. At first I regarded them as poor imitations of American blues singers but, in time, realised they had developed their own distinct format. From this group came names like Peter Green and Eric Clapton. This album is a musical history lesson.
