3.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity, 13 July 2014
This LP was originally released in 1971 and attempted to round up various non-album track singles and other odds and ends on to one LP. Although it did so fairly well, and it does contain singles such as See Emily Play and Arnold Layne, it was nevertheless a missed opportunity, in that other singles such as Apples and Oranges, It Would Be So Nice, and Point Me At The Sky, were all excluded.

Relics is therefore is a bit hit and miss: it does at least gather together tracks which are otherwise difficult to obtain, but at the same time is far from being a definitive collection of the early Floyd singles. Were this album to have a new CD/MP3 reissue, then presumably the opportunity… Read more
The Mammoth Book of Bob Dylan (Mammoth Books) by Sean Egan
4.0 out of 5 stars A good place to start, 6 July 2014
I am a great fan of the "Mammoth book" series, although I know that they are not to everyone's taste. What I like about them is that you get a comprehensive chronological selection of both contemporary and retrospective articles and essays about the artist and their work, and each of these books is literally packed with information and facts.

The Harvest Years 1969-1974 Kevin Ayers MP3 Download
4.0 out of 5 stars The golden years, 6 July 2014
Kevin Ayers did his best work during the period covered by this compilation, though in calling it the Harvest Years, the compilers are slightly incorrect in that it also includes the first LP that he made for Island records in 1974. That's not of course a bad thing, since the island LP "The confessions of Dr Dream" was one of his very best.

What we have with this compilation, is the five albums made by this underrated artist over the five-year period covered by the title. This means that we get Joy of a Toy, Shooting at the Moon, whatevershebringswesing, Bananamour, plus the Dr Dream record.

The Harvest albums were remastered in 2003, while the Island album… Read more
