Heavy Picks: The Robert Cray Band Collection
Heavy Picks: The Robert Cray Band Collection
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Robert Cray Band deserve to be far better known than they are, 1 Nov. 2016

The Robert Cray Band deserve to be far better known than they are. Ideally we'd all get every one of his many CDs, but if we can't, this collection is a great first step. Try "I Guess I Showed Her", "Bad Influence" and "Phone Booth" to start with.

This review is from: Amore (Audio CD)
It's strange how often Andrea Bocelli, whose voice is ideally suited to Neapolitan-type songs, sings things in Spanish; he's not really suited to that, and even so he does it really well.

The Ry Cooder Anthology: The UFO Has Landed

5.0 out of 5 stars but this is a good collection., 1 Nov. 2016

Ry Cooder's always interesting, though rarely fluent (with the exception of his take on Elvis Presley's "Little Sister"). There are more of his noodly instrumentals than there need be, but this is a good collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a good LP; if you want to sample it, 1 Nov. 2016

This review is from: One Of The Lonely Ones (Audio CD)
This LP was recorded in 1969, but the record company never released it (this company always treated Roy Orbison shoddily). It's a good LP; if you want to sample it, try the third track, "Leaving Makes The Rain Come Down", which, despite the clunky title, is Roy at his best..

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of their best records and one of their biggest hits, 25 April 2016

This is one of their best records and one of their biggest hits, but it doesn't appear on the Everlys' greatest hits collections. It's time it did.

It's possibly the best track that Steve Winwood ever made, off the bafflingly named Arc Of A Diver LP.

The loudest controlled voice on this track; not screeching, as so many female singers have been screeching recently, but powerfully in control. And it's a good song.


A Treasure
A Treasure
Price: £11.81

5.0 out of 5 stars since it's one of Neil Young's best. It's worth it for "Southern Pacific" alone, 21 Mar. 2016

This review is from: A Treasure (Audio CD)
This came out as a CD many years after the live concert which it records; it's not clear why there was such a delay, since it's one of Neil Young's best. It's worth it for "Southern Pacific" alone, a classic train song, but the whole CD is good.

This review is from: Dust Radio (MP3 Download)
I remembered "Dust Radio" from several years ago, and then found it on Amazon. It's a weird track, particularly the longer version with the dial weaving all over the place at the end.


Abandoned Love

3.0 out of 5 stars "Ravenna"'s a good track, though, 25 July 2015

This review is from: Abandoned Love (Audio CD)
No, this didn't really meet my expectations. I saw Lavinia Blackwall (the lead female singer) as part of a Sandy Denny tribute concert a few years ago, and she was sensational; which is why I bought this CD, from the same period, but her voice is rather subdued by the arrangements on the CD, and the words aren't sung clearly, as if they're all taking a pose rather than wishing to be understood. "Ravenna"'s a good track, though.
