4.0 out of 5 stars Music for relaxing, 31 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sandy Stewart has a pleasing voice and delivery and this is an excellent listen. However, for me, the tempi are a little slow and at times the piano accompaniment (by her son), is a little strident and intrusive, particularly on the marvellous Porter classic 'After you, who'


In Hollywood (1940-1964)
In Hollywood (1940-1964)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Voice in Hollywood, 6 April 2015

This is an amazing and superbly compiled trawl through the movie career of a brilliant performer. The tracks are thoughtfully ordered and the accompanying booklet is full of fascinating information. For Sinatra fans this is essential, for others important to find out what you have been missing.

Brilliant concert and one of his very best live performance albums. He was in great voice and with the backing of the great Nelson Riddle it is a joy from start to finish

1.0 out of 5 stars Sheer delight, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Often described as the greatest tenor of the 20th century Luciano Pavarotti is shown here to have been unsurpassed in his status. This is a well produced collection of some of his great performances with very interesting comments from the man himself. He will certainly never be forgotten

1.0 out of 5 stars Opportunism, 8 July 2013

This review is from: Impossible Duets (Audio CD)
This CD is 100% rubbish. It is a very poorly produced electronic mock up with nothing to recommend it. Do not be seduced by the name Sinatra - this is a travesty

5.0 out of 5 stars Viennese Magic, 8 July 2013

Most of the pieces played on this double album are old favourites if you are a Strauss fan. Under the baton of Cyril Ornadel the LSO gives outstanding performances

5.0 out of 5 stars Modena's favourite daughter!!, 8 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mirella Freni is possibly the greatest ever Puccini heroine. The recordings are sumptuous if not perhaps quite matching her Decca versions of many of the arias. In those, of course she had the advantage of performing with Pavarotti but here she sings beautifully with Franco Bonisolli and the love duet from Butterfly is quite stunning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rarely heard beautiful voice, 8 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Smile [IMPORT] (Audio CD)
Julia Migenes is heard very infrequently nowadays but is, in my opinion one of the great voices of the last 50 years. Most will recall her in 'Carmen; with Placido Domingoand much of her recorded material originates from Germany. This is an album of popular songs with some unusual arrangements and highly recommended
