The Very Best Of Badfinger
The Very Best Of Badfinger

4.0 out of 5 stars This is good, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Watched Bad Finger many years ago on the Whistle Test, and it was while watching the Whistle Test repeats on TV that persuaded me to purchase a greatest hits catalogue.
This is good, with their hits 'No matter what', 'come and get it', and their own moving rendition of 'Without you'
Not a bad track on the CD, and knowing the fate of the 2 writers makes this a more ...... listenable CD. I love it , and when I hear certain songs, I picture the group singing on the Whistle Test.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love CSNY, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
DVD contains all the major CSNY songs from over the years, including The byrds, Mr Tambourine Man, The Hollies, Carrie Anne, and Buffalo Springfield For what it's worth. OK, the sound and video quality varies due to vintage, but its a mix of live footage, and tv shows. I'm happy with the content , other reviewers have shown disgruntlement.

4.0 out of 5 stars GReat concert, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic DVD, concert content shown at best, OK the sound and picture quality is not up to today's oustanding standards, but that aside, turn the volume up, relax with a glass of wine and bowl of crisps, and you will watch from start to finish.
1981 now seems along time ago, but the DVD brings it a lot closer.
Purchase this regardless of quality

Sennheiser CX300-B High Quality Stereo Ear-Canal Headphones - Black

3.0 out of 5 stars GREAT TO START WITH, 24 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this on the recommendation of a friend, arrived well protected with the usual additional alternative ear fittings. Sound quality was pretty good for something at this price, and the ear fittings worked a treat. Mainly used in the gym, the phones would get a fair amount of handling/use, and after 5-6 months the right phone packed in. I then purchased the more up to date CX500 which have a better sound but , hey, after 5 months these generated the same fault. The problem lies in the wiring into the phone itself, more robust models have atleast an inch of protection at this point

4.0 out of 5 stars Wet Sunday afternoon watching, 23 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: South Pacific [DVD] [1958] (DVD)
This is for those afternoons where you sit down with box of maltesers ,a drink and this DVD. Bali Ha'i, Happy talk, there's nothing like a dame, I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair... they are all there.

Buy it even if its only for those wet afternoons stretched out on the sofa.

3.0 out of 5 stars Live 8, 23 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live 8 [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Bought this just for The Who and ultimately The Floyd, together for 1 last iime.
In that they closed the concert gives the feeling that ' what was before was good, now watch and listen to how the best do it.
Guitar playing at its best, drumming as it should be, singing by people who have a distinctive sound, not these 2 a penny groups now who sound just like all the others!!??
MAkes you proud to be over 50 letting your peers show the youth of today ... This is music and this is how you perform a concert (no miming etc)

4.0 out of 5 stars ITs Van Morrison, 23 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
6 years between the 2 concerts, and you notice the difference.
All the other reviews I would agree with, but to me the actual visual aspects have been let down.
The stage lighting ruins the effect , being all lit up as is the crowd.
That said , great concerts.


Pink Floyd - Live at Pompeii [DVD] [2003]
Pink Floyd - Live at Pompeii [DVD] [2003]
Dvd ~ David Gilmour
Price: £5.38

4.0 out of 5 stars Floyd at their early best, 23 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Need to sit in sudued lighting, with sound system on, glass of wine, and settle down to 60's / 70's production work , listening to live music at its best.
For me, Echos is the best, the way the director has led you into the film, with journey past the Solar System, into long dstance shot of band in Amphitheatre in Pompeii and into song. Excellent
Then nonchalant band discussions in cafe !!!

Enjoy
