Starting At Zero: His Own Story
Starting At Zero: His Own Story

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Great insight, 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read many books on Hendrix, looked at from many angles, however this book with words and lyrics from The Man himself surpasses all of them. Really refreshing to read Jimis' own thoughts on things and not just a rehash of previous material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finishes off what was started nicely!, 31 Jan 2013
After purchasing the five track original album and being left wanting more, this cd delivers. For any Kossoff fan the sheer depth and emotion of his playing on this justifies any of the over inflated price tags that i have seen recently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality reworking of Classic, 16 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the way that the songs have been reformatted on this cd and prefer the order as compared to the older versions. It is good to have both the older and new compilations as the sound improvements are quite audible. Can't really say much else about this as it's already been said before. If you like Robert Johnson and The Blues buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars What it says on the cover., 16 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
40 Delta Blues Gems is exactly what it says on the cover. However much you like the blues, as i do, the same recycling of classics and favourites can get a bit tiresome. That is why this 2 cd set is so refreshing as it digs a little deeper and comes up with some of the lesser heard tracks and artists of the genre. I would highly recommend this album to anyone who wants to delve a bit further into this timeless music.

A great mixture of sounds and styles with the delightful Ms Hamiltons powerful yet smooth vocal intertwining to tie it all together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny from the sky, 11 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an ex paratrooper i read this book with much anticipation. There is a wide variety of scenarios from all over the globe, mainly from the second world war to the seventies. The book displays the mental attitude and dark humour of the airborne soldier extremely well and would be a good read for any service personnel, current or ex. Many of the short stories within are remarkably close to home, although some are standards passed down and it would be good to republish and include more modern escapades as well. Overall though a very funny book and easy to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where it all started for me, 16 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Downriver (Audio CD)
I'll make no bones about it, this is where it all started for me. The voice of Capercaillie. Although nothing like the bands music, Karen Mathesons vocals are enough to carry off something as different as this. If you like Gaelic singing she is a superb exponent and I'm glad that she has'nt gone over to singing completely in English.

5.0 out of 5 stars christmas prezzie for niece, 1 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i bought the hairy bikers cookbook as a christmas present for my 18 yr old niece who absolutely loves it and has already tried some of the recipes. I would highly recommend the book to anyone who has enjoyed the tv series. Service from Amazon was, as usual, top class and prompt.
