A well-written memoir of one the great producers with, of course, his work with the great Bowie one of the highlights. What's not to like?

1.0 out of 5 stars Only one star for such a great book?, 9 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yet another excellent book botched on Kindle. There are maps which appear fleetingly then more or less vanish, and one can't scroll chapter by chapter, only part by part. I'm sorry to give the impression that this is a poor book - anything but - but this is the only way to register my disgust and contempt.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the Kindle edition, 2 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I feel bad only giving this book only one star. What I've read of it is fascinating, so if you're a Motown fan the hard copy will be indespensable. However, the Kindle edition is useless. There is no contents with links to chapters which, presumably, would have been each letter of the alphabet. If you want to find, for instance, James Jamerson, you will have to reach J page by page - who, unless literally Motown mad, would want to do that. I've just wasted a fiver. I am sick and tired of Amazon's ignorant, pathetic, couldn't care less attitude to the words and music they sell.

5.0 out of 5 stars How we miss Dennis Potter, 21 Oct. 2014
This is British television at its best, though when this was first shown we tended to take such inventiveness and sheer quality for granted. How we miss Dennis Potter - though of course these days he would be turned away from Broadcasting House or Channel 4 (far too challenging and controversial, far too much required of the viewer). Some of the song and dance routines in the War Office are simply extraordinary - it's a joy to see the likes of the great Peter Jeffrey mime to Blue Suede Shoes! No doubt the Sun was castigating "Dirty Den" as always in its relentless drive to create a nation of Philistines - strange that it doesn't get worked up these days about material shown at all hours that is far more explicit than Lipstick...This was a wonderful return to Potter's best form and a delight from start to finish.

...I could not download the supplemental guide because it was the wrong format for my basic Kindle - and there seems to be nowt I can do about it. That's Amazon, folks!


MAGIX Music Maker 2013 Premium (Anniversary Special inkl. Music Studio)
MAGIX Music Maker 2013 Premium (Anniversary Special inkl. Music Studio)

1.0 out of 5 stars The Worst, 9 Oct. 2014
I hate Magix. I bought their Music Maker 16 but found that most of the loops were inaccessible. I looked for support, or any way of communicating with Magix, in vain. I know the competition is fierce, but Magix must rank among the very worst in terms of support, leaving it - of course - to the user forum, the ultimate cop-out. If you pay a fee you are able to email Magix....I can't remember how much, but I take that as an insult and an outrage. I don't, of course, know whether issues, queries etc to Magix by email would lead to problems resolved

OK - my brother-in-law is making some incredible music with his Magix set-up but, if you're (presumably) just unlucky like me, and the product you have purchased isn't complete, there's nowt you can do about it. And they don't give a damn. One stat is too much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Live? Amazon - get your act together!, 24 May 2014
Enough said. It's a studio album, of course. There is also a remastered edition of UG - is this it? Probably not, but how can anyone tell? I suggest Amazon employ a few more people to sort out the dog's breakfast that is product description, particularly with regard to music.
