4.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Essential - is Right!, Aug. 4 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Yep, it’s essential... Jim personifies the roots of Nashville Country, but embraces the musical soul of the world... he is internationally recognized/acclaimed and during his musical career went pick to pick and vocal to vocal with the greats such as Elvis and The Beatles.

He is missed but still popular in many countries.

No matter your musical interests you should not overlook Jim Reeves. This collection is an excellent representation of his work.

It is good and follows the theme of 2013 Country Heat mix. Again, good background music especially if you are out on the road and what some entertaining sing- a- longs playing as you drive.

A tribute album always speaks well of and to the artist- in this case Jim Capaldi. Unless you know of Capaldi you might not appreciate the talent of this man as well as his contributions to music. Other artists however do recognize his towering influence in the industry - this is worthy of purchasing- you can enjoy it time and time again especially if you are into various rock styles from the softer melodic to harder and heavier versions of music spawned in the late 60's through the 70's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Contraversial! - Maybe- but that's Country!!!, Aug. 4 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Lifted from Wikipedia, and I could not reflect her musical direction better- Quote: "Musgraves is known for her controversial lyrics in the conservative country music genre. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Musgraves faced criticism for her rebellious lyrics I think throwing the rebel card out there is really cheap. The things I’m singing about are not controversial to me, I don’t push buttons to push buttons. I talk about things that have made an impression on me that a lot of people everywhere are going through''.

Young popular talent reflecting her generation's mood and cynicism- countrified!

Good sound and better writing- not brilliant and a bit wanting, but she has tons of talent and I await her next cds. I will buy them.. this one is worth buying too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paul Mauriat, Aug. 4 2014
This review is from: Best Of Paul Mauriat (Audio CD)
Best known for "Love is Blue" he is a gifted musician and writer. Born in France and inducted at the young age of 10. He has a strong following of his work which consists of timeless classics. Easy listening and very compelling musical scores. I am a fan of rock, however always explore other styles and genres- this is one of those; I just love this artistry and appreciate his accomplishments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Irish Unrest, Aug. 4 2014

This review is from: Dawning, the [Import] (DVD)
A riveting movie with solid performances by Anthony Hopkins, Hugh Grant, Jean Simmons, Trevor Howard, and Rebecca Pidgeon. Depicts the Irish struggles and real sense of the inner conflicts that comes from political rhetoric/fanaticism- The Cause- and the fundamentals of or fallacies of human nature.

This review is from: Duets (Audio CD)
I love the concept of one artist playing virtually or working in real time with other major artists. It is fascinating how the styles blend and in this case harmonize.. I had never come across this album until recently- it is a treasure. Linda at her best.

Solid selection of artists and with that a great variety of country cross over music- not sure it reflects the best, but good enough to rate high. Good driving music...

4.0 out of 5 stars The McCoys - Hang On Sloopy, June 20 2014
Thoroughly enjoyed this CD.... U.S. based band popular in the mid 1960s. Solid and accomplished musicians who attracted good talent to cover mostly pop songs with core members Rick and his brother Randy Derringer. The band members also had an affiliation with other artists including Johnny Winter (although with a different style of music) which shows the diversity of their musical skills.

This is a very impressive selection of music and many of the releases were popular on both sides of the Atlantic.

I was impressed with their accomplishments as were many of their contemporaries. They deserve better recognition for their musical/artistic talents; they however just did not get the same fame as others.

Getting this collection is worth rediscovering the early days of the rock & roll pop genre and takes you beyond the bubble-gum "Hang On Sloopy" cut which is more clever and more sophisticated than suggested by its title.

Good music and an absolute listening pleasure... these yesteryear musicians need to be revisited today... he was one of the foremost influential jazz musicians and composers through the 50's into the 60's. He dies in 2012 and contributed on a variety of records with artists with diverse musical talents and on an equally diverse arrangement/compositions.
