This review is from: Soul UK (Audio CD)
Not only is this a brilliant CD but the service was quite outstanding. Ordered Sept 16th for delivery Oct 02nd. Actual delivery Sept 20th. Now that is what I call excellent service. As to the content of the CD? Beverley delivers shear class on thirteen very fine British Soul classics. Music is such a very personal thing but for me the standout tracks are Fairplay, There's Nothing Like This, Apparently Nothin' and When You Gonna Learn. You'll just have to make your own mind up but for sure this is nothing short of a brilliant album from one of the best singers around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Half Bad As Well, 20 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As I have also reviewed the Kitchen Sink Mix it is only fair that I do the same with this version. Music, as we all know, is a very personal thing and I really liked the fully loaded version with the band, strings, choir and the brass section. The way I hear this is that the vocals are the same on both mixes. Those are clear and heart felt all you can ask from a singer. On this version the brass section takes the secondary focus being further forward in the mixing process. The wonderful sax solo is also here and again this lifts the song well away from Adele's original. It is well worth the 4 stars and only a personal preference keeps it from getting the same 5 stars as the Kitchen Sink Mix. Very strong interpretation from Siobhan with a song that has kind of got lost from Adele's own performances. That's her loss and for Siobhan and Lights Out By Nine a massive gain.

OK I down loaded both versions of this track. Of the two I prefer the Kitchen Sink Mix as it suits the material better. Siobhan has a clear voice and really feels the lyrics. However unlike the previous reviewer thought this is in fact a cover of an Adele song. vaing said that it is very much her own take on the song. I like the way it starts slowly with just a keyboard before real strings come on-board. Once the whole band, brass section and choir join in the results are very good indeed. Where this strongly differs from the original is the added section featuring a wonderful sax break. Yes a very polished performance all round from this new singer and the excellent Lights Out By Nine band out of Fife.

What can I possibly add that has not been said before? Well frankly nothing. From every possible standpoint ER is an outstanding body of work which I can now look forward to watching all through again. Very worthy of the five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterclass in comedy, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have many friends in Bavaria where this TV programme is has an outing every New Year's eve. It has, as far as I know, never had any showings on British TV and can not understand why. It really is a masterclass in comedy and timing. Factor in the fact that it is very funny and can stand repeated viewings I'll be enjoying it as I try to make it essential viewing for my family come Hogmanay

I had always enjoyed ER when it was on TV. Now I, and we, can sit and remember just how good these series were. Excellent transfers and touch wood no problems at all with the double sided DVD's.

I bought this package to give over as a present to my brother. He is very happy with the idea of having available the two different media options. His precious vinyl and a back up version on CD for the car.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been a long time user of Cool Edit Pro I decided that I needed to upgrade to a more advanced system. As I am a Windows based user and having no previous knowledge of Pro Tools I wanted to stay with a similar GUI to that which I had been familiar with hence the selection of CS6. The package is proving to be just what I needed and my knowledge has been enhanced via the addition of Classroom In A Book. The layout and information are first class whilst the tutorials are well thought out and easy to use and understand.
This is an excellent adjunct to have available for users of all levels and requirements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still my favourite, 16 Jan. 2014

Ok so he was not the best singer around but for me he was and still is my favourite singer songwriter. His story songs resonated with me and I am so pleased that I got to see him live twice. Yes I have these albums on vinyl but I got these CD versions for the car.
