5.0 out of 5 stars deleted - limited edition?, 18 Oct 2012
So, as of October 2012, is this set now out of print, deleted and now only available at an inflated price via scalpers? Did I miss that it was going to be a limited edition?

1.0 out of 5 stars Post-Hip Recordings, 19 July 2008
Given the photo on the sleeve you'd be forgiven for thinking this was a collection of classic tracks from the 1950s. It isn't . . . tracks 1-10 are studio recordings from 1989 and 11-16 are live with an unidentified "blues-rock band." If I'd known this before buying I wouldn't have bothered. All this info is clearly announced on the back of the CD, but that front image is a real con, as is the declaration that all songs are in the public domain -- tell that to Leiber & Stoller who when last I looked still had claim to having written "Framed" . . . Dragsville, man.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than you deserve, 11 Sep 2004
By a country mile, the best book on the British pop scene. Only George Melly's Revolt into Style is fit to touch its shirt tails. Despite the title, Bracewell's trip barely escapes the 1970s and 80s: from Roxy Music to the Specials, somehow the Beatles and the Stones get lost -- older brother music for the Mojo generation -- so everything is just that little bit more parochial than it should be, but then his claims for the British specifity of his subject are beautifully achieved. A book that makes you fall in love again with the music you've lived with all your life. Lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars More cuts for your pennies, 9 Sep 2004
This review is from: Ulzana's Raid [DVD] (DVD)
This might not be the definitive version -- does one exist? -- but it does contain scenes that have not appeared in any version broadcast in the UK: pass-the-parcel with a human liver (some say it's a heart), gushing horse blood, and a dog's tail in the mouth of a dead God fearing German. The deleting of the falling horses gives some of the scenes an almost surreal quality of discontinuity. Picture and sound are pretty good, and until a better version comes down the pike, you should spend time here. A great film.
