Black Gives Way To Blue
Black Gives Way To Blue
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 25 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Gives Way To Blue (Audio CD)
When you sample the songs on an album and they all sound very promising you know you won't be disappointed. I only really started listening to the band with Jar of Flies and the Dog album. I only knew few songs from Dirt. Black to Blue is as noisy and powerful as Dirt but the overall feel for me is of the Dog album with a couple of beautiful songs that would fit on Jar of Flies/Sap. How can they sound so similar to and as good as the 90s albums I had all but forgotten. I highly recommend this album. Now I will have to buy the Dog album again as I lent my purple and green version out and never got it back...

Congratulations You Have Just Met the ICF
Congratulations You Have Just Met the ICF
by Cass Pennant
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars not the bes t but.., 9 Mar. 2017
The best bits were the details on how the icf got its name just a few kids glueing together anf making homemade badges in someone's bedroom..probably how a lot if firms started. A few kids deciding to start their own thing. Also where in a South Wales service station they had a big battle with not a football firm as they thought but just some everyday people a coachload of model makers or something! It these touches which add something to this otherwise criticized book.

Tales from the Fast Trains: Europe at 186 mph

Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.83

4.0 out of 5 stars leave the girlfriend at home, 26 Feb. 2017
I really enjoyed reading these accounts of weekend trips to European cities its kind if how I started traveling, grabbing weekends for quick trips to Belgium and the Netherlands. Lots of interesting details. His girlfriend however by the first chapter her remarks were annoying me; why hide behind 'E' tell your readrs your name! This continued to grate throughout the book; the places one visits are not there for your entertainment or to make self satisfactory remarks at. The writer's account though was excellent he brought each city to life. I bet he thought his trip to Luxembourg city was somewhat marred by his partners disapproval about him going on his own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Red and Black. its their colourscheme, 24 Jan. 2017
I bought the version with the spaceship on the cover about 8 years ago and then an online version updated more recently. Very good if you are a fan I don't think the author could have written a more comprehensive and intriguing book on BOC. Very enjoyable and deep insights into all the songs and albums. I paid about $35 for it to be shipped from the States my edition is now falling apart and missing a page or two (don't lend it out), but am often fishing it out for a read.

Pretty good album from the Blue Oyster Cult in an earlier reincarnation. I can't compare it to the Rhino recordings as I don't have that cd. I opter fir this much cheaper one by radioactive. Good value for money and a nice little collection of songs. BOC played Gil Blanco County at their 40th anniversary bash in NYC.

Barossa (Panther Books)
Barossa (Panther Books)
by John Clive
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars the Barossa mystery, 23 Oct. 2016

I loved this novel from the early 80s which I only ordered and read recently. Its portrayal of Australian desert and the european German culture transplanted to the antipodes as backgrounds to what could be just a hoary plot is rendered believable by the characters. The backgrounds of the German scientists and the unlikely British figure with his Chinese connections are fleshed out by jumping back to wartime Germany and Britain. This could be a simple pot boiler of ze mad nazi scientists but it really isn't. NY faboure character is Jiggs and his camels; read it over a weekend and you'll find out why. I saw the late John Clive in Rising Damp and was surprised that he had also been an author even more so that he had penned this book I remembered on the bookshelves decades ago. So many stories like this one are terribly written. This one wasn't.


Warsaw 1920: Lenin's Failed Conquest of Europe
Warsaw 1920: Lenin's Failed Conquest of Europe
by Adam Zamoyski
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Dont forget the East, 23 Oct. 2016
I first saw this book for sale in a great Moscow bookshop in English language. A few decades ago I'm sure it would have been banned as anti-soviet or not complimentary of Russian history! I would recommended this as a great read where the author evinced sympathy for both sides and one can only regret how eastern European history is still somewhat neglected. This book is a short military account as the author admits but there is enough background on geography and characters to be a balanced and intriguing read for most. Very good maps and photo section. Please give it a go!

Who on Earth is Tom Baker? - An Autoiography
by Tom Baker
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Baker at 60 something, 4 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really liked this book its very funny and Tom Baker knows how to tell a story. He narrates his childhood, his time in the monastery and his early acting career. His account of how he became Doctor Who is beautifully told as is both the physical and personal journey at important junctures if his life lime leaving the religious order or moving out of London into the countryside. He is honest about his drinking in probably the most tedious chaoter but yoy have to read attentavily to catch that the consequences were the end of his marriage to Lalla Ward. No mention of Mary Tamm unless i missed it! Be nice to have an updated version covering the move to France then back to Kent and East Sussex, the Big Finish and of course his gentle and emotional comeback for the 50th anniversary. However the late 90s was a good time to write this autobiography. I really enjoyed it it will be a sad day when Tom is no longer here.
