CD: Various Artists - Rare Funk Uncovered (2004) Various Artists, 2004
Interesting more than wonderful but...
3 out of 3 people found this review helpful
One of those impulse buys but certainly don't regret it at the price. Certainly you have to be a funk fan and pretty open-minded to enjoy it but there is plenty to enjoy. I'm a f... read full review

CD: Emma Bunton - Free Me (2004) (Emma Bunton, 2004)
Good lightweight pop with a 60's latin feel
1 out of 1 people found this review helpful
This is a really good CD from Emma. She has a pleasant, lightweight voice that is perfectly matched to pleasant, lightweight songs. The predominant feel is 60's pop-latin with a big debt to Ast... read full review

Yes, it really is that good!

I've always loved the Beach Boys 'Greatest Hits' so had to buy their own 'Sgt. Pepper' I was a little worried because only a couple of the tracks are 'hits' but I s... read full review
CD: Rachel Stevens - Funky Dory (2004) Rachel Stevens, 2004
Worth it at the right price
1 out of 1 people found this review helpful
Bought it on the back of the 'Some Girls' hit but the rest is not really up to that standard. There are a couple of other good tunes on there, the single 'Sweet Dreams my LA ex' i... read full review
CD: Various Artists - Sugar Hill Club Classics (1999) Various Artists, 1999
Classic roots of rap/hip-hop stand up well!
1 out of 1 people found this review helpful
This collection is enjoyable on quite a few different levels. Firstly, it is a great history of the very early roots of rap/hip-hop - this is pretty much the genesis of hip-hop today stands up well c... read full review
CD: The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds (1997) The Beach Boys, 1997
This is truly genius at work
1 out of 1 people found this review helpful
Back in April 2007 I wrote a review of the mono version of this album and gave it five stars with the note that I would get hold of this boxed set some time in the future. Well, now I've got it ... read full review

CD: Karen Carpenter - (2003) (Karen Carpenter, 2003)
A glimpse of what might have been but a bit dated now..
1 out of 1 people found this review helpful
Karen's voice lifts this from a 3* rating to a 4* but as a stand alone CD it is a bit dated now. That said, it is a worthwhile purchase for Karen fans and there a couple of really great tracks a... read full review
CD: Various Artists - Best of Studio One Collection [Box Set] (2006) Various Artists, 2006
I can't praise this set enough!
1 out of 1 people found this review helpful
Studio One has been described as the Jamaican Motown (by myself, among others <laugh>) but it's a pretty accurate description. Except that I personally prefer Studio One by a long way. Un... read full review
CD: Various Artists - Santic Collection (2011) Various Artists, 2011
Some absolute classic Lovers Rock
The 'Lovers Rock' reggae sound of Santic Records and producer Leonard Chin from late 70's early 80's. The sound was a very romantic contrast to the heavy dub and roots sound comin... read full review
CD: Parliament - Mothership Connection [Remastered] (1994) Parliament, 1994
Heavy Funk from the Clinton stable
Once again, a good buy but at the right price. If you're a funk fan then you'll know all about George Clinton and his stable of personnel comprising Parliament, Funkadelic and Bootsy's... read full review
