5.0 out of 5 stars in the mono era DG was as good as anyone, May 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The DG mono recordings of this set are superb, and thoroughly vintage DG -- clear, clean, precise; bright compared to say Decca, Phillips and EMI, but almost never harsh and dry (that came later, well after the mono era had ended). While I'm not a big fan of the bright DG mastering of the late 70s and 80s, in the mono era DG was as good as anyone, including Walter Legge's best work at EMI, which means they are pure magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars The great acting here is Henry Fonda, May 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I agree with many of the other reviews that this is a faithful representation of the book, but only as far as it goes. The key subplot about the attraction of brother Lee and Viv is alluded to, but never really explored, as in the book. I also felt the loss of the cynical Draeger, the East Coast lawyer who tries to make sense of all this to outsiders (of the PNW). He is there briefly, but is basically written out, The great acting here is Henry Fonda, in a role he was born to play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Blu-Ray transfer of this classic musical, May 25, 2016

Excellent Blu-Ray transfer of this classic musical, This also includes a DVD version, and a special features disc. If you have previous editions, this is essentially a repackaging, at a great price.


Speer: Hitler's Architect

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Speer was an enigmatic figure, a confident of Hitler and a devoted Nazi, and yet a man of immense organizational ability, and more than a little personal charm. My interest in this book was largely about how Speer managed to escape the hangman at Nuremberg, when so many less-implicated Nazis did not. Kitchen's conclusion is that Speer was the first, and perhaps the only major Nazi leader to never attempt the evasive "I was only following orders" defense, which proved so vain for the other major figures. In other words, he took personal responsibility for being part of the Nazi regime. What is so troubling, however, is that while he conceded "guilt" in the legal sense, he never truly expressed genuine personal remorse. Kitchen presents this apparent paradox well, and with the well-deserved disdain it deserves. He also suggests that the Court may mot have been fully aware of the extent to which Speer personally participated in the slave labor camps that killed so many people. Perhaps we will never know, but this book presented many worthy insights into the life of this historical enigma. .

Very pleasant for after shower, offering light, spray of familiar Eternity scent. Dries fast. Not to be confused with a cologne or aftershave, as it does not persist

4.0 out of 5 stars The extra charge for thr "Professional" edition is excessive., May 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This basically a hardbound version of the much cheaper paperback, What is added is an appendix with cites to IRS code and reg sections, and a rather brief section of practitioner notes that are quite basic. Like the softbound, it's the best guide I have found, but the extra charge for thr "Professional" edition is excessive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Many one hit wonders from groups or artists that I didn't have in my collection, May 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this for just one song -- Glenn Yarbrough's immortal Baby the Rain Must Fall -- but was pleasantly surprised by how much I have found myself enjoying many of the other songs. This is a great collection of relatively hard to find rock and folk classics. Many are one hit wonders from groups or artists that I didn't have in my collection, songs such as The Lion Sleeps tonight, Jose Feliciano folk/jazz cover of the Door's "Light My Fire, I Will Follow Him by Little Peggy March, and many others like that. Definitely a CD worth owning.


Philips AJ3116M/37 Digital Tuning Clock Radio
Philips AJ3116M/37 Digital Tuning Clock Radio
Price: $10.99
85 used & new from $6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good & cheap clock radio that does the job, May 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered 3 of these, one for each bedroom. On one of them, a digit on the LED display was not lighting, so I will have to return it. The sound on all three is about what you'd expect at this price, tinny, but listenable. The alarm is fine, but setting it is very slow, as there is no fast scroll function. Radio tuning is accurate and reception via built in antenna is excellent. Note: FM only. As a basic clock radio, this merits a 5-star for value, a good cheap clock radio that does the job in the least luxurious way possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phillips had such wonderful engineering during the period covered by this set, May 3, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Phillips had such wonderful engineering during the period covered by this set, primarily the pre-digital era from about 1956 to 1990. I have the first Phillips set, which is simply a joy to listen to, for both the sonics and the performances. If this set, doesn't quite rise to the level of the first set, which covers much of the same period, it is still one I am very happy to have. If you don't have the first set, which is a little cheaper, I would get that first. My guess is that you will want this one too, as I did -- and am very, very happy with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars an accomplished work,, May 3, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: All Fall Down (Audio CD)
It took a while, but I have ended up enjoying this album after all. It's a thoughtful, at times provocative album, which revisits thematically -- but not musically -- the familiar themes of self sabotage, sacrifice, love lost (and occasionally won) that Colvin explored so well on previous albums. However, there are many times when I found myself wishing that Colvin would forget the words for a while, and just break into one of her signature brilliant melodies and chord changes, There's not enough here in the latter department to merit 5 stars IMO, but I do think this is an accomplished work, even by the high standards one expects from an artist of such high stature.
