5.0 out of 5 stars NOT JUST GOOD FOR IT'S TIME!, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It doesn't say anywhere on the package that these shorts have been restored in any way, but, if they haven't been, I'd sure like to see them if they ever do because these little gems look pretty good just as they are, especially considering that they first were shown 73 years ago.
I remember seeing some of them on television as a child but back then I didn't realize just how well drawn and scored they were.This was state of the art animation in 1941. They took it seriously and it showed, resulting in the first cartoon, Superman, being nominated for an Academy Award.
Every frame was hand drawn and is an individual treat for the eyes with no lazy reused backgrounds or layouts like you see in so many cartoons.
The storylines are ambitious and inventive, the editing is fast paced and exciting original musical scores were written for each short.
I love owning these films and not only for their nostalgia value.
Truth is they make a lot of today's computer generated animations look pretty soulless.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Power Of Money, 25 Mar. 2014
This review is from: The Power of Love (Audio CD)
Once again they took a strong singer and produced a weak album, no different than they do with all the X Factor 'winners'.
The material is mostly uninspired, 'karaoke time' covers and standard pap.
The duets are predictable and overwrought (I mean who needs NS and MB bellowing at the top of their lungs?).
Sam had a rawness to her voice from her first audition that has been smoothed over and watered down.
They turned a gutsy, soulful artist into a shiny, sequined diva.
Someone will get rich here.
Poor girl. They should have done better by her.

Fact: The world needs Stanhope more than Stanhope needs the world!
Collect his every word before he throws up his hands in frustration and walks off the stage.
Just brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars SAVING GRACE, 22 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Your Saving Grace (Audio CD)
If you're a fan of the SMB you should be aware that the latest series of remastered releases are excellent.
I started by buying the first three albums (my faves) and was so pleased I carried on getting them all.
Still waiting for a comparable remaster of The Joker. Surely it can't be long now.

One of my all time favourite bands gets treated like they oughta!
All the SMB reissues sound great.
This one is no exception.
I bought the first three albums and was so pleased I've gone and purchased them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHY IS THIS HIS FIRST???, 22 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: You Should Be So Lucky (Audio CD)
In the first verse of the opening song you can hear Dylan's influence on BT's writing, more in melody and phrasing than lyrically.
Then, of course, are the two Dylan related covers.
Luck had nothing to do with the quality of this effort. It's all talent.
I think BT's advantage here is that he has always had a fulfilling outlet for his creativity in his role as a much sought after 'sideman', and sounds justifiably comfortable with the opportunity to express himself on this, his first solo release.
It's a nice album to listen to.
Flows well and sounds good.
With so many purchases listened to once, maybe twice, and thrown in the corner, it's cool to find a new album that I'm sure I will return to.

Great fun to actually see the band I listen to so often.
Some vids are a bit surreal but they work with the music.
I have a hard time faulting anything this group does. I'm just so glad they exist.

Just another example of what you can do in remastering!
Great music treated with respect.
We could use more of this kind of thing.
