1.0 out of 5 stars Painful!, 2 May 2009
I had read a review of this in the (London) Times, and was intrigued by some of the reasons for censorship. I warn you: if you have any taste in music, you'll find the experience of listening to this painful! There are a dozen or so great tracks in various genres, but the rest - like the majority of popular music in any era - is appalling!
The Krays, The: Unfinished Business by Martin Fido
5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
Fido begins with a potted history of London's organised criminal gangs and families, placing the Krays in their historical context. He avoids the crass romanticising of these men's lives that the hack writers of best-selling Kray "biographies" indulge in. Fido identifies the reality behind their activities - Evil.
The Changing Face of London Road, Leicester by Helen E. Boynton

For anyone who knows this area of Leicester, this immaculately researched book is required reading. The photographs, many in colour, are phenomenal. Out of print at the time of this review (I acquired mine on eBay). If it reappears on Amazon, buy it!
