"These Are The Days" is a very special release. The title track is a slow jazz song likely to please old-time Sinatra fans and those warming to the new jazz and soul wave in which Jamie is joined by Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone and his fellow BRITS performer Katie Melua.

This has been made into a movie, and they have probably glamourised it a fair bit. My advice? Read the book first. If you buy this book don't expect a modern-day masterpiece; it isn't, and wasn't written to be one. If you were to put it in the "Trash Fiction" genre along with the Sweet… Read more
