5.0 out of 5 stars Donovan as his best, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Buy this set; don't hesitate; you don't need to, because if you liked his music back in the day you really will enjoy this set. Hardly any repetition of tracks as is sometimes the case. The compilers have done a great job and produced a set that will stand the test of time. A great reminder of just how great Donovan is. Sadly he was under that shadow of the fab four in the UK but was recognised in the US. This music doesn't date it sounds as fresh today as it did when he wrote it apart from the slightly hippyish early tracks of course!

2.0 out of 5 stars As it says on the tin . . ., 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Slightly misleading title as some on the tracks aren't what I would term mellow. Pleasant enough but not really anything to stir the soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Originality shines out, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All Moody Blues fans should have this set in their collection. What a loss he was to the Moodies when he left. Their loss is the listener's gain, however because during the intervening years he has written and sung some outstanding songs many of which are included on this very well-produced set. A very interesting and informative booklet is included which makes fascinating reading. I highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 5 Jun 2014

I would recommend this to anyone who likes the totally original sound of Lee. It opened my eyes to a new genre; I find it refreshing and positive to listen to even though some of his songs could be considered as a bit depressing there is always a subtle humour attached to them. I think that sums up Lee Hazlewood; on the surface his songs appear, on first listening, to be simple and slightly mundane but you need to listen again and again to each song and eventually, you will be hooked. He is a one-off!!


Ancient Heart/Everybody's Angel
Ancient Heart/Everybody's Angel
Offered by skyvo-direct
Price: 6.92

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the extra few quid, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ancient Heart is an absolute classic and as it is teamed up with Everybody's Angel for a very reasonable price and not much more than Ancient Heart in its own I bought it. Everybody's Angel will no doubt grow on me but it is the poorer album of the two.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Box Set for 70's Soul & R&B, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Previous reviews have praised this box set and I agree with them all. This is a superb box set which not only looks good but sounds fantastic. This music is timeless and fills you full of happiness. I will just keep on playing it until it wears out then buy another . . . it's that good!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Collectors will love this, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Personally I just thought their LP tracks were; on the whole; better. Primarily I bought it because of the rarity of having a and b sides.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly poor, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sorry to say I don't rate this too highly. The Elora Festival Singers don't quite give me that tingle that says: 'Oh, beautiful'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiritual Blessing, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lauridsen: Nocturnes (Audio CD)
It is such a blessing that we have music such as this to soothe our troubled souls. I heartily recommend this to everyone who seeks inner peace at the end of a busy day or older ones such as me who need a comforting hand to guide them. A well produced CD that will stand the test of time and be a great addition to your collection.
