2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing reprint, 19 Jan. 2017
I've waited nearly 40 years for this book to get a decent reprint. This isn't one. The photographs lack the sharpness of those in the original version; as this a 'photo book', this is a serious flaw. When I heard this was coming out I thought I would be able to sell my copy of the rare 1978 edition, but I am ending up selling this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor sound quality. A sub-par unit. Avoid!, 21 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Poor sound quality, weak and on the tinny side. The sound controls are minimal, and tinkering with them barely makes any difference. Very little bass, and not much more power. Disappointing - suitable for a child's bedroom or a garden shed only. Panasonic used to have a good name, however on this performance I won't consider buying their stuff again. -- On a positive note, the 'returns process' is seamless. Once repackaged, the item can be dropped off at a local shop, so this cushions the blow.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Fop, 7 Mar. 2015
Well-photographed, but the author(s) incessantly confuse the dandy with the fop; an expected blunder, sadly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wierd ! This is NOT a wildlife DVD, 3 Mar. 2015
WTF ? a guy i no said i should watch this. like i say, as a fan of Elsa The Lioness i was expecting a sinilar film but in a nutshell about a jackal (called 'Carlos') - the famed African wild dog. Wierdly the hole film is about a guy with a bierd running around with a gun. That said, it is quiet good and there is a lot of suspense, ect, plus some gr8 preformances. next time please give a title that tells us just WTF the fill is a bout !! 2 stars !!

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak, uninteresting, and dishonest, 12 April 2012
This review is from: Our Generation (Paperback)
While the author (who handily gave his own book a 5 star review, I note) deserves praise for his efforts at documenting the local punk scene of the day, the attempt is meagre, tedious, and frequently embarrassing. Unless you were around in Sheffield and its environs in the day, there is little to interest anyone in this half-hearted account of shows attended, bands started and as quickly broken up, and hackneyed attempts at capturing youthful joie-de-vivre. Careers of well-known acts are needlessly rehearsed, and there is much talk of the "changes" effected on the author and circle by punk rock - a claim far from borne out by the mundane reminiscence-mongering to be found on most pages: the sort of dewey-eyed dross that any middle-aged Jon Bon Jovi fan could equally come up with. Happening to historically coincide with - and dip a toe in the water of - an inspired musical and social moment fails to make the author any less conservative than if he had made his bones dancing to a Frankie Avalon L.P. It is Beasley's baseless, self-aggrandising claims to the contrary that are intolerable. Add to the mix a pedestrian prose style, rudimentary layout, tiny & indistinct photos., & numerous grammatical and spelling errors - not to mention the typos that are to be found on almost every page - and you're left with one of the least appealing volumes that has yet appeared in the genre.
