4.0 out of 5 stars THEY CAN TAKE A BEATING, 14 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a beginner, I found these to be just great. And as a novice, I prefer them to wooden sticks. They're tough and rugged but not as loud sounding as wooden sticks, which is a blessing for anyone listening to my playing! I normally start playing soft and without realising it I end up battling and battering the drums almost to the point of scattering the whole set.

Most drummers prefer the performance of proper wooden drum sticks but at my level of inexperience I broke dozens. So these 5A nylons saved the day.

I really shouldn't go anywhere near a drum kit but I'm determined in my quest of becoming a mediocre player!

4.0 out of 5 stars BUDGET LABEL, QUALITY SONGS, 11 Aug. 2016

This review is from: Almost In Love (Audio CD)
Though released in November 1970, I first bought this album as a teenager ten years later. Many such compilations would be released by the then low price label Camden Records, but this represents the best in terms of song selection. Hardly budget material in fact!

Having said that, it must be said that the recording quality and mix of the time was less than great - even for 1960's standards. Elvis himself would complain bitterly about the flat sound mix with his voice way up front and the music almost as background. One track particularly, LONG LEGGED GIRL, highlights this issue. It is a superb song but suffers from a terrible mix by the original engineers. Similarly and to prove this point conclusively, A LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION and RUBBERNECKIN' were superbly remixed from their flat sound and re-released in 2002 and 2003 respectively to become worldwide hits.

Though I feel this album should have been remixed to a much better sound now, I can recommend you include it in your collection - especially at the price it is being offered here.

5.0 out of 5 stars GRACELAND OUT-TAKES, 1 Aug. 2016
In 1976 Elvis was just not in the mood to go through the tiresome routine of recording music - not even to meet his contractual recording obligations. His last three albums, released in 1974 and 1975 (Promised Land, Good Times, Today), were artistically excellent and did reasonably well commercially. Now however, at the age of 41, he'd become vocal about his dislike of recording. The ups and downs of his private life as well as health related issues contributed much to this situation.

So, if Elvis won't go to a recording studio, then the studio must go to Elvis. RCA sent a mobile recording unit to Graceland and the jungle room was converted into an outlandish studio. Elvis loved the setup and convenience of having to simply come down a few steps from his private suite upstairs, while the musicians were put up in nearby hotels. No doubt he would have built his permanent recording studio on the Graceland grounds thereafter had he lived beyond the following year.

This collection is made up of selected out-takes of the songs recorded at these sessions - and was the first official release of its kind to offer fans a fly on the wall experience of Elvis' final recordings. The songs are mostly sad and melancholic, and are perhaps defining of his mental state at the time. And as a personal opinion, I feel Elvis wanted to share his feelings of loneliness and despair with the world. But what comes across abundantly is that Elvis still had that rich voice, and still commanded attention with his style and delivery.

A great CD with a crystal clear sound which deserves a place in your collection.

Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars 1970s Live Version, 20 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good and faithful backing track of Elvis Presley's 1970s live version of the famous Chuck Berry composition.
Singing this is fun, but remember this is a backing track only and no lyrics are shown or supplied.
The lyrics however can be easily downloaded and printed from the internet if needed.

So now good luck telling Johnny to go!

This is a fairly good backing track of Elvis Presley's 1956 studio version.
Elvis menacingly growls his way very effectively through this Leiber/Stoller composition and forever owns this legendary song.
The backing track here requires the same aggression from you and is fun singing it.
Remember that this is a backing track and no lyrics are supplied or shown. But you can easily download and print the lyrics from the internet.
Good luck!

A great backing track with a fast paced sound.
But this is not the version normally associated with Elvis' studio recording. More of a live version.
Still, this is a good rocking version. Remember though, this is an instrumental only. The lyrics are not shown or supplied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Cable, 11 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are cheaper cables available, but spending a little extra goes a long way.

Solid and genuine cable and connector components made all the difference in the build quality. You can hear the clarity in the resulting sound. And even though this cable is eight metres long, there is no noticeable loss in power. The chord comes in purple colour as shown.

This is my second purchase from this brand and can easily recommend this product.
