This review is from: Gimme Some (MP3 Music)
simone gives her all in this philips series! the first time i heard her performance of this tune was on a verve remixed compilation. i think the remixed series is great fun--it helps to introduce a wider audience to classic jazz stylings if the listener is willing to go the limit and listen to the original. in the case of 'gimme some' it is time well spent! i love the combination of a girl-group sound with the jazz combo arrangement. their shouts of 'gimme some' over the chunky, funky chords is a great response to simone's raspy, hot vcoals on the verses. simone's preternatural touch on the keys makes the piano as much a part of the rhythm section of the combo without distorting becoming too heavy. if anything, she could gimme more and i'd love it!

This review is from: Love Me Or Leave Me (MP3 Music)
if it were possible, i would give it ten! simone's keyboard work is one of the most iconic jazz/classical piano performances recorded! and her vocals are spicy and hot, making a distinct contrast to the melancholy of the lyrics. i enjoy her interpretation a great deal!

5.0 out of 5 stars gold of many colors, March 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
if nothing more, the double disc 'black gold' shows that minnie riperton was more than a singer. she was a musical instrument! it's great to hear music that defies classification. at times, they are sitting in the pews of a church (like 'amen') or soaring in space ('magical world') or mixing it all up with their legendary cover of 'respect'. this collection of cuts is precious and it's multi-hued. not just black--look at the photo on the cover on the box. if i had one wish for rotary connection it would have been that one of the maverick filmmakers of the 1970s would have asked them to do a score for a film. then maybe their fame would have matched their worth.

5.0 out of 5 stars home again on video and none too soon!, March 4, 2015
for a tv film, this was an eye opener and it still holds up thirty plus years after its first airing. sally field showed off her potential in her performance as flower child dennie. though she got a little off track in the mid seventies, she came back with 'sybil'; it's great and rewarding to see her at ground zero ready for take off as one of the finer actresses of the late 20th century. she is ably supported by jackie cooper and eleanor parker as her parents and the delicious lane bradbury as her pugnacious younger sister susie. bradbury, who was just as effective, didn't rise to the same heights as field did professionally and that's a bit of a mystery. and equally impactful are david carradine and loads of character actors like jean byron as the family's neighbors and friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars rich lotion that leaves behind a silky sheen without feeling oily!, August 18, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
i am always searching for a good skin lotion that is rich and nourishing and lends a sheen to my skin after i apply it. and i have been looking vainly for one since nivea discontinued their skin oil. maybe nivea will bring their oil back. in the mean time while i wait, this lotion is a worthy substitute. it is fairly odorless, which is good if one does aromatherapy (and i do) but i wouldn't put the oil in the lotion. i smooth this on then i apply a few drops of oil over it. heaven!

4.0 out of 5 stars life's dance for one man, August 18, 2014
This review is from: Black Dance (Paperback)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
this was a fascinating read! it was also a challenging read because of its unorthodox structure. once i adjusted to the jumps in time and space, i found a love for each of the characters in milo noirlac's life. and my heart ached and sang as each dysfunction was revealed. as huston reveals everything about her charismatic main character milo, she never allows you to judge or feel pity. you feel a strong sense of communion with each of these complex, passionate and nobly flawed individuals that contribute to milo's life. i would take this book down again on a long vacation to a summer paradise and read with only the sound of the ocean in the background. it would be as good the second time!

5.0 out of 5 stars shanice wilson does not play when she sings 'just a game'!, July 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Just A Game (MP3 Music)
in this day of 'x factor' and 'america's got talent', it is not uncommon to hear someone who is very young parrot a famous performance by a music icon. shanice wilson hit the music scene (and sadly, seems to have left it) long before all of this happened. and as a result, she was and still is, an original. her debut album showed off a precocious talent with a mutli-octave range and an unreal ability to express feelings that seem beyond her (then) younger self. 'just a game' is one of those ballads that flies by if you don't listen to the whole album; but it's a gift if you do!

5.0 out of 5 stars the man comes through in his book!, July 26, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
alan cumming is not only a versatile actor, he is also a sensitive and deft writer. the proof is in his memoir, 'not my father's son'. the book is spare and economical in its size but its story is large and far-reaching. he has stepped and shared his story in such a way that it can inspire anyone that has hit a block in their spiritual growth and journey. i particularly love how he sets the reader in to the here and now with his life and career at 2010 (which was not bad shabby at all to the naked eye) and then slowly shows how a simple experience begins the process of reflection on your self. then he goes even further and shows how the process of reflection brings a person face to face with some things he or she would rather not think about again. ever. of course, it can be argued that there are more courageous acts to do i can't think of one that is more human than opening and laying battle scars open for the world to see. because when anyone reveal pain and healing, they help others to heal.

4.0 out of 5 stars great recipes that are food for thought, June 26, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
smoothies have become the healthy alternative to our friend the milkshake. while more than a few people have sensitivities to the ingredients that make a milkshake a wonderful thing, hardly anyone can go wrong with ice, fruit, herbs and juices. chace's slim volume is a nice and lively collection of recipes for nutritional smoothies. the photos make them look mouth watering and the ingredients are the body of vitality.

when using this book, it is important to remind yourself that these drink will help you become a slimmer you--they won't do all the work for you. eat some of those vitamins and walk and breathe in the air around you if you don't like the stale fusty odor and fluorescent lights of a gym!

5.0 out of 5 stars a battle that was well-waged, June 26, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
birmingham's book on james joyce it is a complex and painstaking reconstruction of the european literary scene at the top of the 20th century. it is so well crafted, a reader gets a sense of the streets joyce walked in ireland and italy, his colleagues, his love nora barnacle and the many enemies of his work. birmingham has a masterful use of adjective and phrase that bring everyone in this story to vivid life in the reader's mind. this is the type of book that is hard to put aside, even when birmingham takes the reader in to joyce's litany of medical issues. it is here that the text gets very graphic but again--it is wholly readable and very much worth the skin crawling feel given from the text.

after finishing this book, i have wondered if i would pick up a novel of joyce's, knowing that i love non fiction more than i love fiction at this point in my life. i think i would like to learn more about joyce first and others in his world, then deal with the prospect of battling through 'ulysses' on my own.

that would be battle number two and i would be ready for it by that time!
