3.0 out of 5 stars When your in the mood - Beverley Knight., 17 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beverley seems to deliver quality but I am not overly passionate with respect to this music.

I associate the quality of delivery and arrangements more with the Americas but this seems O.K.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slight Obsession closed off after over 50 years., 17 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wrote a review prior to ordering it. Now it has been downloaded it hasn't disappointed after over 50 years.

I don't know if the Brazillians still produce the "quiet" bossa-nova unlike the louder Carioca Festival stuff but one does tend to float around the room to this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rachmaninov - last of the romantics?, 17 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was not aware or even conscious of Rachmaninov or his creative work. Now I am.

The Andre Previn and LSO recording may be somewhat aged but appeared very expressive.

Very enjoyable and entertaining listening just before bedtime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quintessential., 4 Jan. 2015
I was a little boy when my father brought this home with a long player of Frank Sinatra doing his thing with Antonio as well. I was pre-pubescent then. Strange how I was hooked then and 51 years later as well. I will order this CD version when convenient. As far as I know my Father never bought any other records in his life.

Quality shows I suppose.

3.0 out of 5 stars It needs a careful listen to appreciate the nuances., 3 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bream's expertise as a musician is recognised correctly. I seem to like it the more I play it. The Elizabethans were expert in their day although musical tastes have changed. By comparison to the Spanish guitar the English lute seems limited in range and and difficult to master (as I am not a musician I am not sure about this point). I am in spite of this very proud that, my early countrymen and women could have conspired to create something so expressive when handled as Julian Bream does.

Not sure how the instrument is fairing now.


Separate Tables [1958] [DVD]
Separate Tables [1958] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Deborah Kerr
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and "off beat"., 14 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Separate Tables [1958] [DVD] (DVD)
I first saw this film version of Terrence Rattigan's play some decades ago. The monochrome presentation seemed to add to the rather emotionally fraught piece. Rattigan was a homosexual and the women's roles were very strong, possibly because of this. I'm not sure if Ben Hecht or Rattigan intended this but the post war UK austerity did come through.

I bought this on a memory and a not too serious whim.

Not bad, I will add it too my collection. My wife may enjoy this more than me when she has the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review: Sinatra/Jobim, 4 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I was a little boy in 1966/7 my father brought home the vinyl version of the first half of this. Instead of the Beatles I listened to this. He said "If you like classical then listen to this!".

I rediscovered this after a long absence when my son found a CD in my deceased mother's bits and pieces. My father passed away some years ago.

It is very "gratifying" to know that after 47 years I'm still hooked.

As a member of the "great unwashed" I found this rendition of the (boss/Beethoven) gorgeous to listen to. I will never get tired of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review: Walking Cane, 4 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A non'slip hand grip would obviate the need for a wrist strap more and would be more comfortable to hold. The walking cane was just about tall enough for me but a taller man would find the whole device useless. The ferrol did not grip the floor as well as a soft rubber one would, as a result I thought more about the placing of the cane on the floor when walking. As a folding cane for travelling it was easy to assemble at moments notice and was strong in construction.

I am content to use again if needed.
