4.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 18 April 2006
I was glad to see this book reissued as it was getting very tricky indeed to track down an older copy. I'm very fond of this new edition though - the new cover artwork brings a breath of fresh air to this astounding book.

A gripping read from start to finish - one simply cannot comprehend what Aidan MacCarthy went through. The account ranges from lighthearted to, at times horrific and even disturbing! For anyone who has read this - 'maggots' spring to mind! Ghastly!

Overall this is a must-have and I'm chuffed it's now so easily available again!

5.0 out of 5 stars CCR's opus!, 5 Aug 2005
Going out on a limb here - Pink Floyd had their 'Dark Side of the Moon'; The Stones had 'Let it Bleed'; and The Beatles, 'Revolver' would seem only natural that Cosmo's Factory goes down in the archives as being CCR's true rock opus - perhaps their most quintessential moment. And it's really not hard to see why...
As someone else has commented, this album begs to be listened to in one uninterrupted sitting. From the magnificent opening track, Ramble Tamble, through to Ooby Dooby, this album is a barrage of hit after hit. It's truly unyielding. It features favourites such as Up Around the Bend, Lookin' Out My Back Door and the anthemic As Long As I Can See the Light. Peppered with… Read more
