5.0 out of 5 stars A jewel of a recording, 15 April 2014
This review is from: Langa Langa (Audio CD)
I'd started to get a bit tired of much music but this CD is different, a refreshing blast of fresh air

Jess Morgan's voice is warm, it conveys a guileless love and enthusiasm for people. Her songs identify with fallible ordinary folk attempting to make their way through a sometimes confusing world, surviving, making and breaking relationships, life in all its messiness.

The lyrics contain some clever word plays, not smart, but clever in the way that poetry is clever

Her guitar playing is superb, great musicianship.

A jewel of a recording. Definite buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant work, well translated, 12 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant first part of a trilogy showing, through a well written and well developed story, the background to Finland's emergence as in independent state. Put like that it doesn't sound too interesting but if you worked your way through the big Russian novels you;ll love this one

A good rich collection of songs, brilliantly sung as always by Niamh Parsons. I still prefer 'Hearts Desire' but this fully justifies 5 stars

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK, 15 Oct 2013

A worthy book rather than an exciting one. Has most of what you need but not always easy to find stuff as a reference and a bit heavy to read right through

5.0 out of 5 stars Another superb album from Niamh Parsons, 25 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heart's Desire (MP3 Download)
This is the loveliest album yet from one of Ireland's best singers.

I particularly like 'West Coast of Clare' - which I think expresses feelings that many will identify with (maybe passing a gentle sigh) but they are all excellent.

A mixture of traditional songs ('My Lagan Love;} light hearted songs (Kiss in the Morning Early), songs of love and songs of loss, all with 'Hear's Desire' as a unifying theme.

This collection would make an excellent introduction to Niamh Parsons for anybody wanting to explore the work of this superb singer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful and to the point, 25 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is best seen, not as a comprehensive guide to use of Access 2003 but as a helpful friend when learning to use Access in solving business problems.

Does what it says on the tin very well.

Why only 4 stars then? Because it is very much business oriented and I am an engineer who finds business aplications a bit dull. I know, that is so unfair!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful new voice, 25 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Week Of Pines (Audio CD)
What a superb first CD from Georgina Ruth!

Great songs, lovely blend of modern and traditional.

She is a very accomplished singer with a strong clear pure voice and an ability to easily hit the high notes

Arrangements are excellent, the harp sits very naturally with the other more main-stream instruments, and fully justifies its presence. This a wonderful CD to sit back, listen to, relax to, and enjoy.

Now when does the next CD come out??

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best of the Vanguard years, 25 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This compilation is not the 'best' of Buffy St Marie's vanguard years, more a representative sample some of which are amongst the best tracks she recorded for Vanguard.

Buffie St Marie is a unique talent that you will love or really not care for - and you won't be able to decide from the few seconds sample of tracks on Amazon. If you liked the best known track 'Soldier Blue' then buy it for this and the 8 or 9 other really good tracks in the collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joan Baez at her very best, 25 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 5 (MP3 Download)
In the late 1960's this was,for me, the best Joan Baez album. An broad mix of content confidently sung in that beautiful voice. The arrangements were more ambitious and assured than earlier material, though not overly complex.

There are some lovely pieces here: Byron's 'So we'll go no more a roving' for example is perfect; nobody else need record it. There are also some very poignant songs like 'Birmingham Sunday'; this song is pitched perfectly to bring home in a quiet, almost understated way, the cruelty, horror and futility of the bombing of a baptist chapel that killed four little girls.

All of the songs are superbly sung.

Although there have been may excellent albums from Joann Baez since, this one, for me, is still the best

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best is Superb, 1 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this album for 'Killing the Blues', hoping I'd also find other tracks I liked.

I did, I think most of them are really good. A superb album.
