This review is from: Wolf Hall [DVD] (DVD)
Excellent DVD set. This has a great cast and features an irresistible take on Henry VIII's court as seen through the eyes of his 'fixer' Thomas Cromwell. This is great TV and a riveting interpretation of the excellent book. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not as thunk as people drink I am!, 10 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This little book will suit both the beginner and the expert in the wonderful world of whisky. This nice-sized volume is well laid out, with good descriptions of the products, pictures of the bottles, a price guide, and even space to record your verdicts as you work your way through the whiskies. There is also helpful information about the producers, distilleries and whether they have a visitors' centre. I like the fact that the featured whiskies are all available commercially, thus avoiding disappointment for the reader as they go forth to try them out. This book is a nice little browser, as well as a helpfully informative guide. Whether you like single malts, or are just thinking about where to start in exploring Japanese whiskies, then this is for you. This would make a perfect gift, or a welcome addition to any library. Keep it near the drinks cabinet as it saves all the walking as you settle down to try another taste or two of the 'water of life'. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pioneering Stuff!, 3 April 2015
This review is from: Wolflight (Audio CD)
A welcome return by Steve Hackett and this extraordinary album does not disappoint. It's rather orchestral and heavy in parts, but in a good and tasteful way. The lengthier songs are the most interesting as Hackett has time to explore and spread, including delivering quality solos. There are also some lovely acoustic touches. Fans will love this and it should be spectacular to hear this material live. Possibly prog album of the year? Well, perhaps too early to say, but I would be surprised if it is not in contention - it's that good. It does one's heart good to know there is still vision, imagination and quality out there in Progland - long may it continue. Recommended.


The Best Of Lena Horne

4.0 out of 5 stars Horne Of Plenty!, 3 April 2015
This review is from: The Best Of Lena Horne (Audio CD)
This is a wonderful collection of Lena Horne classics drawn from her best releases on Blue Note and United Artists. The first disc was mostly recorded on Capitol Records in the 60s and is better than the second, recorded on Blue Note and Capitol in the 90s and 2004. But both discs feature quality material, with first class arrangements and superb musicianship. The sound quality is fantastic and this 2-disc set is a real bargain. Lena Horne was a classy singer with a great voice and this album represents some of her best material. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just Let It Flow!, 16 Mar. 2015
This review is from: Tracker (Audio CD)
This is a very nice album from Mark Knopfler featuring a range of quality songs, beautifully played (the musicianship is excellent throughout). This is a fairly laid-back glimpse at some slices of life and it's one of those records where you find yourself hitting the repeat button and just letting it flow. Wonderful stuff - recommended.

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.
