3.0 out of 5 stars Content not as claimed, 23 Jun 2014
A word of warning for those contemplating this purchase. It might seem that, on the face of things, that this would be an automatic buy, especially given the rarity of both albums in the CD era. This unauthorised issue from a boot leg label is supremely flawed. Ignoring the "remastered" claim on the cover, the worst aspect of this release is the s/t début album which makes, or should make, up the first six tracks. Instead of the full album, consisting of around 35 minutes of music, each track is truncated and instead of the full album you get just 10 minutes of music!

Amazon should really pull this listing as the DVD was never issued. My memory, possibly incorrect, was that it was going to be issued and just prior to the release the production company went bust. Henceforth this is not available and never was. We will have to wait until someone else gets the license to issue it.

That said it's a great little film, typical of the era and just as one might expect with Jack Hawkins in the lead. Come on you DVD companies, stop re-issuing the same old films for the umpteenth time and give us something new!

You get what you pay for and at 1.50 the buyer cannot expect too much. It is a bargain too good to be true and it didn't quite last two months before going belly-up. At least it didn't blow my car's fuses as per another reviewer. Seemingly cheap at 1.50 but scaling it up equates to 12 for a year's use and it starts to look pretty expensive. I bit the bullet after this cautionary experience and bought a badged Sony charger. Let's see how that goes......
