4.0 out of 5 stars Good Burroughs tale, 4 Aug. 2016
This review is from: The Legend of Tarzan [DVD] (DVD)
A thoroughly enjoyable reboot of the Tarzan legend.
I thought that the gorilla effects were amazing,even better than King Kong(Jackson),and the flashbacks as how Tarzan became Tarzan are very good for those who have not read the books or seen any Tarzan before.
Nice to see Edgar Rice Burroughs tales coming to the fore again.
The John Carter film by Disney was better than most would have you believe,and this film too is a great forage into the Tarzan tales.
Excellent

5.0 out of 5 stars Two classic Shads albums remastered, 4 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Specs Appeal/ Tasty (Audio CD)
Specs Appeal(1975) is a great album from Marvin,Welch,Farrar and Bennett.
A wealth of original tunes and songs.Most notable being Let Me Be The One,The Shads Eurovision entry,and the semi drum solo track Honourable Puff Puff which for many years was Brians preferred live drum solo selection until Little B took over again.My favourite ballad on this album is the beautiful Like Strangers and Colorado Songbird.A fantastic interpretation of The Beach Boys God Only Knows is an absolute gem out of many on this great album.6 bonus tracks to this cd.
Tasty(1977) features my favourite Shads instrumental of the 70,s,the brilliant Montezuma,s Revenge(a year later utilised as the b.side to Argentina.This album is ALL instrumental and features some cracking originals,Cricket Bat Boogie,Return To The Alamo,Another Night,Bermuda Triangle,Creole Nights.Aswell as great versions of Walk Dont Run(The Ventures),Homky Tonk Woman(Stones,Yellow Brick Road(Elton),Superstar(Carpenters)and Most Beautiful Girl (Charlie Rich).All delivered with passion and Hank and John playing some great rocky guitar and slide.John Farrar however had left the band therefore does not play on all the tracks.
The Magic remasters of these 2 albums is second to none making them sound fresh and an audible delight.This cd has 6 bonus tracks.
Any fan should have this set in there collection as they sound much better than the EMI individual releases of a few years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars A box of delights, 22 July 2016
Encapsulated within is the definative history of The Beatles,the worlds most important band in the history of Rock n Roll.
The best British songwriting parnership ever,along with John/Taupin.
All the albums gorgeously remastered,housed in a sturdy box with magnetic flap to house the cd,s which are all gatefold sleeves with booklets.The cd,s each have a pc documentary watch only of the history of the album concerned.However this box has all the mini documentary grouped onto a region free dvd(approx 48 mins) so you can watch on your tv.
An essential purchase and possibly the best i will ever ever buy..Awesome!!!

Hellraiser Trilogy Blu-Ray
Hellraiser Trilogy Blu-Ray
Dvd ~ Doug Bradley
Price: £29.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Hell of a set, 17 July 2016
I have only just watched HR 1 at the moment,but personally i have to say that the picture quality is far superior to anything i have yet seen.
Colours rich and image mu h more clear and defined.
A plethora of very interesting extra,s etc.I know some reviews of noted edited docs but for me 1hr 30 is more than enough insightful information regarding the story of the Hellbound incarnation.
Beautiful reversable sleeves are a great additional bonus and the box which house all 3 is strong,sturdy and great to look at.
I can't wait to watch 2 and 3.
Well done Arrow!! As this set is more than enough to TEAR YOUR SOUL APART!!!!


Live In Japan and Pops In Japan
Live In Japan and Pops In Japan

4.0 out of 5 stars The end was nigh, 16 July 2016
Live in Sankei Hall 1969.

This is not the greatest of concert by The Shads.For one,no Bruce Welch!!
Line up-Hank,John Rostill,Brian Bennett and Alan Hawkshaw.
This was when the boys were all for wrapping it in(they did that year),but professional as ever honoured concert engagements.

A spree of hits are performed,but uniquely,Slaughter On Tenth Avenue(officiallly the last Shads single of the 60,s.
Hank went on that year to release his brilliant solo debut album,Brian went on to record in his own right and John went on tour with Tom Jones in Vegas.
This show has been available on an MFP double vinyl simply titled Live(along with Paris Olympia 75),and again on the Fren h Magic release of the FULL Olympia concert.The cd also includes a handful of studio tracks recorded only for the Japanese market.
A unique historical document in the story of The Shadows as this was the end of the 60,s,end of The Shadows,making way for Hankssolo albumand the bbeginning of the Marvin Welch and Farrar period,b3fore The Shads reformed in 73.

An absolute classic.
This new limited edition is absolutely gorgeous in sound and looks.
The dynamic range is the best yet through my KEF speakers.

The pressing is immaculate with no distortion what so ever.
Yes it does include a download card.
As for limited? I don't know by how many,mine is number 003047,but of how many?
