5.0 out of 5 stars British Sisters Elizabeth & Catherine Ward-Thomas have made Country music ..., 20 Oct. 2014

This review is from: From Where We Stand (Audio CD)
British Sisters Elizabeth & Catherine Ward-Thomas have made Country music their own. This album has uplifting country songs which I want to dance to, others are more soulful with meaningful lyrics. There is a track called "Town called Uggley" a tongue-in-cheek song about an Essex town

Basia Bulat has released three albums, this is her first. I love her songs, about life. I am hoping Basia will get some deserved recognition here in Britain

5.0 out of 5 stars 2013 anthems & classics all on one collection, 19 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"Now" musical collections have been around for over thirty years. The collection includes recent hits and even some "new" songs which were just being released and in the charts leading to Christmas 2013. The collection opensd with one of the biggest anthems of the year "Roar" by Katy Perry, Avicii's "Wake me up" & "Burn" by Ellie Goulding. There are also two of the most original songs released in 2013 "Royals" by a 16 year New-Zealander called Lorde, and the popular "Counting stars" by One Republic. There is something for everyone, and one of the then current songs was the song used by John Lewis for their Christmas advertising campaign, Lily Allen's version of "Somewhere only we know"

This review is from: Tall Tall Shadow (Audio CD)
Basia is a singer & songwriter from Canada. I first heard of her, when I was in Poznan, Poland. Basia had been touring in Europe and she had a CD of her music in the hostel. I listened to it several times in the hostel & my parents bought me the same CD in 2011. Basia plays many instruments including auto-harp as well as keyboard & guitar. The title track is very catchy.

5.0 out of 5 stars For the happy couple, 19 Jan. 2014

I have been a fan of these special glasses, as they make special presents for my friends and family members to help them celebrate, a birthday, a promotion to a new job... Last summer my nephew was married & I was unsure what wedding present to buy them, they had all the "normal" type of wedding presents & so I bought them this. I was a bit worried if the glass would arrive in time & in one piece. I had to collect the well protected glass from the post office central office as I was at work when the glass was delivered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sisters in harmony, 19 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Lily and Madeleine (Audio CD)
I came across sisters Lily & Madeleine Jurkiewicz from a friend's website, and so I looked at some of their music on you-tube and was so pleasantly surprised to hear some beautiful songs from Lily & Madeleine. Lily & Madeleine had previously released an EP "Weight of the globe" & on the strength of the songs on that EP I bought their first album. All the tracks are all original and written by the sisters and guitarist Kenny Childers. My favourite is "I've got freedom". I am also seeing the sisters playing live at a gig in St Pancras Church, London one of only two days they will be playing in England. The sisters are from Indianapolis USA

5.0 out of 5 stars Recollecting some of my albums by Smokie, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Classics (Audio CD)
In the 1970s Smokie were my favourite bands. I bought the albums on vinyl (apart from cassettes was the only media of recorded music) and as the years passed by my albums and turntable became lost. This collection has enabled me to relive these years and hear these albums again. Many of the big hits are among this collection, "If you think you know how to love me", "Don't play your rock 'n' roll to me", "Lay back in the arms of someone" and the excellent "Oh Carol" (a song with a story). Some other songs from the albums became favourites of mine as well "Julia", "Sunshine Avenue" and "Liverpool docks". Very competively priced collection, other "Original Album classics" by other artists are also available.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful album by a talented singer, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have previously bought Amy's other albums, both were so good, I bought her third and still pleasently surprised that every track on this album is excellent. The album starts with the "4th of July" and also features "Pride" and "Slow it down". There is also a hidden track "Two worlds" at the very end of the album.
