1.0 out of 5 stars NO Subtitltes, 2 Dec. 2012
Unable to comment on product as no sub titles. If production companies can not be bothered to include sub titles they should at least have the courage and courtesy to include this important information in the product information.

1.0 out of 5 stars No subtitles, 14 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Templar [DVD] (DVD)
It is bad enough that production companies cannot be bothered to consider those who are unfortunate enough to have hearing problems but they could at least have the decency to indicate in the product information that they have not included subtitles. This would save frustration as well as cost.
All too common a fault.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive Brel, 3 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a great admirer of Jacques Brel and a huge fan of the amazing Amanda McBroom so have been eagerly awaiting this CD with its perfect marriage of talent and artistry: and it does not disappoint!

Everything about this collection is amazing. The individual arrangements enhance the music and provide the perfect support for Ms McBroom's pure voice and impeccable delivery. This is quality through and through. There are some very familiar songs here and some that I have not heard in English before but each song somehow sounds newly minted and you are drawn into the poetry and stories, hearing so much as if for the very first time. Such is the consummate skill of this lady who has the ability to awaken memories and emotions in all of us.
The track listing:
Girl In An Armchair ("L'Ostendaise")
Early Morning Hangers On ("Les Paumes Du Petit Matin")
Song For Old Lovers ("La Chanson Des Vieux Amants")
I Loved ("Je T'Aime")
My Death ("La Mort")
Carousel ("La Valse A Mille Temps")
Ne Me Quitte Pas (1959)
You Don't Forget The Past( "On N'Oublie Rien ")
No Love ("Jef" )
Ca Va ("Le Diable")
Marieke
If We Only Have Love ("Quand On N'A Que L'Amour")

Every lover of Brel should have this in their collection: every lover of Ms McBroom needs to own this and for those who have yet to discover either of these huge talents here is the perfect place to begin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and sublime, 21 July 2009
A wonderful live recording from February 2009. Some familiar and some new tracks not previously available on CD. Esther is in fine voice, still hauntingly beautiful and clear, supported by superb arrangements that perfectly compliment the beauty of her voice. Each track is a delight contributing to a programme mix that suits her range and style perfectly: from Kurt Weil through Leonard Cohen, Lennon and McCartney and standards by Gus Khan and Rodgers and Hammerstein with of course some poignant and haunting traditional folk songs. This is a completely different programme of songs from her other live concert recording from 2003. How about a DVD next time for those of us who are unable to make her few concerts in Germany?
16 tracks after a short music intro - My Fisherman, My Laddie-o / My Lagan Love / Hallelujah / Ne'ula hi dalti / The Willow Song / Ma Omrot Eynayich / I'll See You In My Dreams / Here I'll Stay / Das Lied vom Surabaya Johnny / Yesterday / Kinderspiele / I Have Dreamed / Adio Querida / Alabama Song / The French Partisan / Cinderella Rockefella

1.0 out of 5 stars No subtitles, 21 July 2009

Unable to comment on the film since we were unable to watch it without subtitles. If studios can not be bothered to provide subtitles at least make this clear on the product description

Barb back on form with a stunning selection of songs individually styled. The arrangements are excellent and her voice has never sounded better. Managed to see her perform these live - brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb - her best CD, 6 July 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I saw the previous reviewer I just had to counteract. While I can accept this may not appeal to everyone "hideous" is not a word that could ever be applied to the amazing quality of Barb's voice or her individual and heartfelt interpretation of songs. Her later albums while interesting are not a patch on this excellent gold star classic. For anyone who enjoys "chanson" and the theatre of vocal performance, this is a must. I have listened to this so many times now and its pleasure never palls.

Fortunately we are all different but those who enjoy individuality and high quality talent should certainly listen to Barb Jungr.

Also check our Karen Akers for French chanson and keep an eager eye open for the work in progress CD of Brel songs by the quite incredible and unique Amanda McBroom

5.0 out of 5 stars great entertainment, 17 May 2006
This review is from: Only You [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
An absolutely delight. Pure escapism entertainment. Deft comic performances, great chemistry between the leads and stunning scenery. Pour out the wine and forget the world.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pet is brilliant but buy an alternative!, 27 April 2005
This review is from: Live (Audio CD)
Petula is definitely the best - her repertoire and talent enormous and underrated. Any CD by Petula is a great experience (hence the star rating) - but
Don't buy this album!
The title is misleading - these are not live recordings.
The artist does not benefit in any way from the sales of this CD.
All these tracks are available on other CDs - if you want a recently released excellent compilation purchase Feeling Groovy!
