5.0 out of 5 stars at last!, 26 Sept. 2003
This review is from: The BBC Sessions (Audio CD)
Fantastic! I have loved turn my head and spring ever since hearing them on muddy (taped off the radio in the sixties) bootlegs, and yearned to hear them in something approaching decent quality (and without the beginning chopped off turn...)
YAY! Dig in!

5.0 out of 5 stars someone reissue this!, 26 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Pacific Ocean Blue (Audio CD)
Pacific ocean blue is one of the greatest albums of all time. No one in the history of anything has got close to Dennis Wilson for singing with such heartbreaking intensity and emotion. Time, thoughts of you, river song, rainbows, pacific ocean blues. all total classics. superb cover with lots of lovely pictures of Denny. Just find it on vinyl if you cant' get it on cd. But pray for a reissue on cd, because I have heard the potential bonus tracks, and god! they are good!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Single, avoid (half) the album, 7 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Your Imagination (Audio CD)
THis is definitely the highlight of the Imagination album, the rest is marred by poor (unimaginative) production, by some wrestler who produced it! The single isn't as good as classic beach boys hits, but Brian gamely gives it a go, and it is a fun pop song. Just pray that he works with a decent collaborator (like andy paley) sometime soon. As anyone who has heard the boots will attest, the best stuff is still staying in the vaults....

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't get me wrong, I really love the Seeds, but........., 7 Sept. 2003
The quality of this release is beyond a joke. The sound quality is noticeably below average, and when listened to on headphones, you can tell it is taken from a vinyl copy( not even in particularly good condition, from the sound of it! BUT the worst thing is 20 seconds or so into "tripmaker" (a particularly good song), the sound cuts out for a second. At first I thought it was just a standard drop out, but on headphones, the drop out was revealed to be a small section where the recording was taped over with some chick singer! AWFUL AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!! They also miss one track off altogether! A bootlegger could do better! Just look elswhere if you want to hear the seeds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still listening to Beatles? Hang your head in shame!, 7 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Turtle Soup (Audio CD)
The Turtles are right up there with the monkees and Beach boys as a band who have long been respected as great singles artists, but totally unrecognised as "serious" musicians. Well the turtles aren't serious in any way shape or form, (see "i'm king kamanawanalea" on battle of the bands) , but they certainly wrote some beautiful songs. If you doubt their genius, just listen to "love in the city" and be converted. My best description, would be forever changes if that had been commercial! Yeah! That good! Really! Maybe even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius, 7 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Turtle Soup (Audio CD)
I was drawn to this album after I picked up the single "love in the City". I knew the turtles were better than their greatest hit's suggested, but this single was / is a total revelation. I can't beleive people still harp on about the ridiculously overrated Beatles, when there is music as beautiful and imaginitive as this album waiting to be discovered! Love in the city is a commercial distillation of everything that made "forever changes " great. Odd time changes, strings and horns, and a great lead vocal. The album as a whole has suprisingly dark lyrics (as do many of the turtles songs). Bachelor mother "five and one make two"? I think I know what that is about! House on the hill is a weird little ditty about a guy whose wife brings "girls from the academy" Strange. Great instrumentalists.Great vocalists, and amazing writers. This, and the unreleased stuff for their supposed next album, are totally essential. AND because no one really appreciates them, you can pick up original vinyl copies for next to nothing. I got a mint, still SEALED copy on ebay for.....four dollars! Still sealed! From 1969!!! YOU NEED TO OWN THIS RECORD IF YOU DON@T ALREADY KNOW ABOUT THE TURTLES!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just track it down if you like sixties music, 7 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Wimple Winch Story 1963 (Audio CD)
Avoid spending £600 on save my soul, or a similarly ridiculous sum on either of the other wimple winch singles, and get this cd. There is good reason the three winch singles attract stupidly high prices- they are very very very good. THe most energetic and exiting rock music to have been made in this country, in my opinion. The just four men tracks are equally worhtwhile. Track it down!
