3.0 out of 5 stars very technical watch, 12 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Many possibilities on the one hand, but complicated (many buttons) operation on the other. Batteries of this item run out fast. Recommended to younger technique oriented people. Comfortable to wear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unknown highlights, 6 Sept. 2011
In a music industry obsessed with hypes and media intention it is important for the real music fan to discover the really worthwhile and original music recordings. The MOJO guide does exactly that: it combines well known with equally interesting if not more fascinating albums from the end of the fifties until well into the naughties. Original and inspiring to everyone with a serious interest in pop and rock (and country and rap and world music) one warning is necessary: this book will expand your record/CD collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Master of the picture sleeve, 13 Feb. 2011
Barney Bubbles is revealed as the master designer behind sleeves of artists ranging from Hawkwind to John Cooper Clarke via Ian Dury and specifically Elvis Costello. The book (a revised and updated version of the 2009 first issue) not only tells the story of his tragically ending life but contains beautiful reproductions of many record sleeves, tour posters and other designs by the artist. The highlights to me are his 'borrowing' from a range of art movements and his gift for designing beautiful lettering. Think Generation X's Your Generation 7" and Elvis Costello's Armed Forces LP.
A must for anyone still involved in the habit of looking at record sleeves whilst listening. Warning: reading this book may cause urge to collect!
