5.0 out of 5 stars A Five Star Riveting Read., 28 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hibs and The Pogues (Paperback)
Calum Bruce has once again produced another cracker of a book.The follow up to The Best Night Out in Town {2013}does not disappoint,unlike the Argos,Screwfix and Argos catalogues,i just couldn't put this book down.Hibs and The Pogues,like its predecessor is very funny,containing lots of adult,laddish orientated stuff.But though the humour and bitter sweet moments,there is also a serious side,mostly concerning the very moving relationship Calum had with his parents.There is a message in one of the chapters which none of us should ever ignore.To sum up this excellent tome''whats not to like?''All you wannabe hacks and keyboard warriors out there,look out there is a new sheriff in town,a mighty wind is blowing from Perth via Easter Road and the County Hell.Nice one Calum,lets have another one.

This review is from: Get Back Change (Audio CD)
A brilliant album from start to finish.Ron Hynes aka The Man of a Thousand Songs,passed away on November 18 this year and it was with a sad heart that i review this lovely album,not a 'duff' track to be found.Ron Hynes was a very proud Newfoundlander and he was and still is the most influential figure,music wise to emerge from the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.No lesser talent than Alan Doyle from the legendary band Great Big Sea,once said that ''íf you want to know anything about our province,check out Ron Hynes'' and how right he was.RIP RON.

3.0 out of 5 stars One man's attempt to change pop history!, 17 Feb. 2015
This dvd was obviously made by a self obsessive who wants to re-write his place in the history of pop music.Yes,The Dave Clark Five were a very good band,but no way they could be in the same class as The Beatles or The Rolling Stones.I disagree with Elton John's comments,everone has an opinion of course, but for me bands such as The Who,Kinks, Hollies,Hermans Hermits,The Searchers,The Move,Yardbirds,Zombies and The Walker Brothers were superior to The DC 5.I totally agree with my fellow reviewer, that Mike Smith WAS the Dave Clark Five, a superb vocalist who should have gone on to a successful solo career.Having said that,i enjoyed most of the documentary, a nostalgic look back at the sixties,its a pity there wasn't more input from the other band members,RIP Mike,Denny and Rick.

This review is from: Diverted [DVD] (DVD)
An excellent movie, i have rather a biased view of all things Newfoundland,i have been a visitor to 'The Rock' no less then eight times since 2007.The events surrounding 9/11 have left a mark on all us,obviously some more then others.Diverted focuses on the ,retlationshops between the passengers and residents of Gander and having personally met people who were involved during that week following the terror attacks on New York and Washington,lifelong friendships were formed .One flaw however and its only a small gripe the band Hey Rosetta! appear in the movie,and as huge fan of this excellent combo,i know for a fact that Tim Baker and Co. were not yet in exsistence in 2001.Still great dvd though and thats all that matters

Yes,its great, but I could have done without the influence of Arlene Phillips, too much Eric Idle input, how much did the other Pythons contribute to this and the other shows? And,where o where was Neil Innes? How could you not have 'the sixth Beatle[and first Rutle] make some kind of appearance?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD by an equally excellent act, 22 Aug. 2014

This review is from: In Flanders Fields (Audio CD)
Excellent CD by an equally excellent act! The only time I have seen C B & S perform was in Dranouter, Belgium in 1996.Close to where the allied war groves are located and near the town of Ypres/Ieper.I'm famiiar with most of these songs on this superb double cd.Moslty compiled from various concerts that Coope,Boyes & Simpson have performed in Belgium and some I believe in the UK.Without giving too much away,this collection is well worth purchasing[or downloading,you cheapskates!] especially for anyone who has not heard or got hold of any of their previous work.The lads done brilliant!
