4.0 out of 5 stars Prepare to be surprised, 19 Feb 2012
A most unusual book that is ostensibly an account of a fishing trip, but includes a study of Norman MacCaig as poet and friend, a Guide to Assynt in NW Scotland, its geology, people and the Highland Clearances, autobiography, philosophy, the art of fishing and reflections on the human condition, all beautifully written. There's a feel-good factor about it, but also much cause for reflection. The flash-back technique used may be disconcerting at first, but one soon gets used to it. This is a book not just for Scots, poets or fishermen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfaction, 30 Dec 2009
I chose these Boxed CDs after reading the reviews on Amazon's site. They did not let me down. I was after a recording as near to the full original stage production as possible which was accompanied by the full libretto. Recordings of the London cast are not full, they're a selection with no book of words. There are no words with the film CD either. This set has the words in full, though you need a magnifying glass to read them.

This original Concept Recording has a fine cast (though I prefer a deeper voice for Juan Peron than Paul Jones's)and superb musicians: it's a quality recording. It contains one or two songs which were later dropped and lacks 'You Must Love Me', which first appeared in the film and was later added to the 2006 production (the recording of that production is also a selection and lacks libretto).

I am very happy with my purchase.
