2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 22 Jan 2014
I like Leslie West. But I found this CD hard to get into. His last album, "Unusual Suspects" had some of the best songs he's ever recorded. Well impressed. But it also had some pretty poor stuff. This album has some good stuff on it - Busted disgusted and Dyin since I was born, but they are not as good as the great songs on Unusual Suspects. Sadly, it also has some pretty awful stuff. Fade into you, Not over you at all and when a man loves a woman. Cringe. So poor that I find it hard to play the album. So ultimately a disappointing and patchy record, that I'm afraid will soon be gone from my CD collection.

This is a very well writtten book that covers an area of the war that is often overlooked. A couple of drawbacks. (1) It concentrates heavily on the American aspects and does not deal with the British side in the same detail. This is disappointing and makes the book a bit lop sided. (2) It deals with some parts of the story in very great detail - perhaps too much. This is also the case in may American books on the ACW. It does bring out the problems of the alliance between France and the USA and deals with this very well. In doing so it also reminds the reader of the huge impact of the French decision to declare war on Britain - perhaps the single factor that lead to the successful break… Read more
