5.0 out of 5 stars the best narrative of the King's recording sessions, 21 May 2017
Put simply...the best narrative of the King's recording sessions...with interesting insights on the man himself's perspectives on what he was recording and his approach to individual songs.i could not put this book down once I started reading it .

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best albums ever released, 12 Nov. 2016
This review is from: Old No.1/Texas Cookin' (Audio CD)
Without exageration the OLd No I album was a masterpiece,one of the best albums ever released.

Beautiful vignettes of the lives of social outcasts,winos,old men,fiddlers playing for a nickel,desperadoes etc .

An album that evokes stunning imagery So simple and yet so melodic,lyrically brilliant and wonderfully effective.

I bought it way back on vinyl in 1978 ,specially ordered from the USA .Wore out the original copy and have replaced it.Truly an understated classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis could sing anything and do a great job of it, 12 Nov. 2016
Elvis could sing anything and do a great job of it.Rhythm and blues,country,gospel(just superb),ballads,pop,even pop related stuff with a jazz feel and of course rock.HIs personal record collection reflected all of these musical sides to him and included also opera and classical music.

I thoroughly enjoyed this album and the arrangements which were all tastefully done...music and reworked backing vocals And the subtle musical blending to allow one track to flow into the next...clever..' I Got A Thing about You Baby( 'Tony Joe White) 'Memories' ( Mac Davis) and 'Just Pretend'(British songwriters Flett and Fletcher) are my favourite reworkings.Nice to hear a variation of the original classics by the man.

(Sad to say many of the King's late 1960's and 1970s recordings did not get the credit they fully deserved at the time..eg A little less Conversation.,Indescribably Blue,Almost in Love, Guitar Man ,Rubberneckin...just to name a few that werre largely ignored.)

I have one minor quibble with the selection on the album.'The Wonder Of You' is a very good vocal but it is not the show stopper version featured as his smash No 1 single in 1970 from the electric 'ON Stage' cd.But that does not digress in any way from the overall 5 star performance from everyone involved.Long live The King.


Elvis Is Back (Legacy Edition)

5.0 out of 5 stars It is just so awesome, fresh and vibrant, 3 Sept. 2016
Elvis Is Back is one of the top Elvis 'must have' albums.I am a long tanding fan who has every track ever recorded by him and variations of all his albums.By all means buy this album but do yourself a massive favour by searching Amazon for the Elvis Is Back Remastered to the Original 1960 MP3 version and that is important to stress(if you buy the cd version you will not get that actual copy).It will cost you £2.99 and you will note the difference immediately to all other versions.

The artwork is Elvis in a red shirt on a pale blue background.It is the actual vinyl released at the time.It is just so awesome,fresh and vibrant.An essential buy to hear him in all his magnificence.


Giottos Optical Glass Screen Protector for Nikon D40 and D40X
Giottos Optical Glass Screen Protector for Nikon D40 and D40X

5.0 out of 5 stars None better, 7 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought one again for my son for use on his Nikon D40.During a shoot the rear screen took a heavy knock and the giottos screen took a small chip only.The damaged screen was removed easily and the new one fiited.I have no doubt his Nikon LCD would have been damaged but for the protection from the Giottos optical glass...which is really glass incidentally (unlike some other brands which claim to be so but are flimsy plastic).

I have a large collection of DSLRs all protected by screens and quality camera bags.Giottos is one of the best protective screen brand's available and would be my first choice every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is no better clipper for your head, 15 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is no better clipper for your head.If used properly you should not have any cuts or abrasions.

I have used mine for 4 years now and they are simply superb.

Do not use these clippers on your face as they are wholly unsuitable for that use.


Cromwell was Framed: Ireland 1649
Cromwell was Framed: Ireland 1649
by Tom Reilly
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Best read as a companion novel to his first book ..., 13 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best read as a companion novel to his first book on Cromwell which was packed full of research and facts about Cromwell in Ireland.
This book serves as a repudiation to critics of his first book who were irked that their particular flawed and unfair constructs of the man were taken apart piece by piece by Mr Reilly

.These two books have a permanent place in my library.
