Price: £40.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Food For Your Soul!, 17 Feb. 2015
This boxed set has 20 of the finest R&B/Soul albums ever released. It's like an expanded Blues Brothers soundtrack with much more added on! Great value for money, these records are timeless. Sound quality is excellent and the variety of music here is astounding. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Gold!, 8 Feb. 2015
There is no finer collection of Motown classics than this wonderful 10-disc set. Great quality, a perfect selection and the finest releases in the Motown canon. This is probably the most important Motown collection available anywhere. There is not a duff track anywhere here and no padding out with mediocre tracks. This is all pure gold. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Beautiful!, 5 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Hozier (Audio CD)
This is a special album. Great songs. Great arrangements. And that voice! It grabbed me with the first song and it just got better as I listened through the whole album. Then I had to listen to it all again. I've not done that in a while, but this record is THAT good. It's a bit like Fleet Foxes meets Jeff Buckley and Jack White - that's the closest I can get to providing a comparison, but even that is inadequate. This is one of those albums that you listen to and then you understand why words of description are futile. The music says it all. Just buy it - you won't be disappointed. Brilliant and beautiful and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent!, 17 Jan. 2015
This album is just fantastic on all levels. A great concert with great musicians celebrating folk and country music over the years. Superb performances all round and an enthusiastic audience make this a great listen. If you liked the soundtrack to 'Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?' you will love this. Great to see this music being revived and appreciated. Joan Baez, Elvis Costello and Jack White on the same bill (and harmonies and pickin' to die for)! What are you waiting for? Highly, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A History of Blue Note - Quality Jazz!, 7 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This 5-CD set with helpful booklet is a nice accompaniment to the superb new book 'Uncompromising Expression', a history of Blue Note Records from its creation in 1939 in New York, up to the present day. These CDs reflect that journey, through the various singles released by foremost Blue Note artists over the years. Superb recording quality and great jazz music - that's what Blue Note has always been about and that's what you get here. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Passion For Jazz!, 7 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the story of Blue Note Records, one of the most important jazz record labels in 20th century music. The story starts in Nazi Germany and continues through the label's creation in New York in 1939 and on to the present day. The book is well written and lavishly illustrated with great photos, notes, insights and details of Blue Note's most famous artists and their recordings. This was truly a joy to read, including listening to the 5-CD boxed set that has been issued separately. Blue Note sought out the best and most adventurous jazz artists and took an uncompromising approach to recording and promoting quality jazz music, even if it didn't sell. It was the passion for the music that counted - a policy that persists with Blue Note today. This is an important addition to books about jazz and is likely to be the best music book published this year - highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Taste of Strawbs!, 16 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Prognostic (Audio CD)
A collection of good quality old Strawbs tracks on one album. It all hangs together well and the choice of lengthier songs makes this a good listening experience, particularly if you are a prog rock fan. The musicianship is excellent and Dave Cousins' vocals are as strong and passionate as ever. Recommended.


Lamentation (The Shardlake series Book 6)
Lamentation (The Shardlake series Book 6)
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtakingly Good!, 12 Nov. 2014
The latest in the superb Shardlake series is a real page-turner. I found the storyline enthralling as usual with moments of real excitement, terror, and with plenty of historical detail to bring the characters and their times alive. Each of these novels is a masterpiece, but this one really had me going! Wonderful stuff and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs of Innocence And Experience!, 11 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Songs Of Innocence (Audio CD)
This is the strongest album from U2 for a while and I must say it's very welcome. I'm not too bothered about the way the album was launched - it showed a degree of confidence by the band. They were right to be supportive of this material because the songs are very good indeed and the production is first class. We have the usual great guitar work from the Edge, quality vocals from Bono, and a really good album to add to the U2 canon. What's not to like? Recommended.

Price: £57.41

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Classical Collection!, 8 Nov. 2014
This a very nice collection of symphonies and other works by major composers. The 50 CDs are well presented and the recordings are of excellent quality. The Beethoven and Mahler recordings are particularly fine, as are those of Richard Strauss. This set also contains a helpful booklet and is excellent value for money. Recommended.
