5.0 out of 5 stars Finally the 74 mix available, March 30 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this album when it was release. Maybe 2 years later, Mike wanted that only the Boxed mix will be available after that, so the first CD version were the Boxed mix. I always prefer the 74 mix cause more subtile. In the Boxed mix the instruments were added one after the others, not the case in the 74 mix. Hergest Ridge is very melancolic . Mike use some composer trick's like he use a melody line and add a accompaniment line then another accompaniment line, then he change all instruments and then one the the accompaniment line become the main theme and so and so. Only Mike can have thoses ideas. Musicians will love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best quality/price available, good sound, for beginners and professionnals, March 30 2014
This guitar have a lot lot of sustain ......... more than Gibson Les Paul (except chambered body)! The neck is 50's so a little thick but the fret leveling is perfect, after all very playable and fun to play, the faded finish on the back of the neck make hand easy to move . The 61 alnico 5 humbucker pickups are very bright, so i unscred (1/8) the poles for the EAD strings and sometimes set the tone to 7 to have better bass response et cut some treble, those pickups have a lot of definitions (no muddy). I bought a Yorkville SG ridgid case ($75.00) cause it comes with a gig bag. (IMO gigbag is ok for not angle head sock) This guitar is very light weight, 24 ffets, i use it for jazz (yes man !! sustain and tone) classic rock and metal (no me but my son). As good as $2000 Gibson guitar.

3.0 out of 5 stars Monotonous, April 3 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Ian Anderson made a solo album, you do not feel the intake of other musicians, no synergy. TAAB2 is a succession of songs, the transition between songs is not as fluid TAAB. However this would not matter if the songs were at least fresh and dynamic, I really loved ROOT TO BRANCHES, it was in 1995, a major CD made by JT. I also loved UNDER WRAPS although it was more electronic keyboard. I am open to what Ian Anderson can make excellent, but this time I do not have hung.

5.0 out of 5 stars Le meilleur album Québécois en 2009, Dec 2 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Marie-Pierre Arthur (Audio CD)
Wow quel album canon pour un premier CD. Même si elle est auteur-compositeur-interprête elle a su s'entourer de collaborateurs de premier plan(Gaelle aux textes, François Lafontaine à la musique), même Michel Rivard. La voie de Marie-Pierre Arthur est forte et surtout naturelle et personnelle. Cette musique est connectée avec ce qu'il se fait de mieux présentement même au niveau international dans la musique indépendante (INDIE) et cela en français. Ma chanson préférée est PAS LE COURAGE, en spectacle au BAR LE ZARICOT à ST-HYACYNTHE le show était tout simplement mémorable. Écouter ....

A little less of alternative country, closer to classic country folk rock, great songs, a great addition to the Lucinda's catalogue, a very good album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpeice, March 29 2011
This review is from: Wild Life (Audio CD)
With Ram, Wild Life are my favorites album. The production is basic, it's a live studio album. This album contains no hit and has not encountered a huge commercial success but each song is remarkable. Dear Friend is so tragic, Tomorrow could have been on the White Album, Love Is Stange is a great cover in a Jamaican Style (great musical performance), BeBop could have been on the White Album too and is a classic for those who know played the guitar. It's a great album for musician who loves REVOLVER or White Album. If you're just an radio hit listenner, don't buy this album, but if you really like music, you probably have this album in your LP collection and waht the CD version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mellow, jazzy, refreshing with little prog, accessible., Oct. 27 2010
This review is from: 2008 Travelling Live (Audio CD)
My firsts impressions were COOL, COOL, COOL, Hey Hey Hey, tracks after tracks, this guy have found a way to revisited his own style on his own composition and his personnal guitar hero (Kenny Burrell). This album is for anyone who like guitar from Prog to serious jazz listener. You listen one track and then you want to listen the entire album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Le meilleur CD de Catherine Durand, Feb. 6 2009
This review is from: Coeurs Migratoires (Audio CD)
Ce CD est exceptionnel. Toutes les chansons sont bonnes. Il y a un équilibre parfait entre le texte la mélodie les arrangements et la musique, ce CD est digne des plus grands de l'histoire de la musique québécoise. C'est du folk country rock atmosphérique achevé, fignolé, parsemé de violon cor français et hautbois. La voix particulière de Catherine Durant si douce et juste se marie si bien avec la musique qu'elle a crée. Ce CD n'est pas très radio FM, au printemps 2009 elle fera la première partie de Francis Cabrel lors de sa tournée québécoise, peut-être celà lui ouvriera les portes d'un large publique. C'est à souhaiter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Young guns as good maybe better than original, June 7 2008
I have seen live FZ three times (1977)(1979)(1987), but for me the best show i have seen of Frank'music was a show of THE BAND FROM UTOPIA (circa 2000), that was before i have seen this DVD. Now i can say that the best show of Frank's music is that tour of Dweezil's Band. They cover the music so perfectly, with the touch of the original mucisian and their own.
Evrery musicians of the band are so incredebile. They play the way the original member do, Aaron Arnt (keyboard, trumpet, vocal) can play George Duke style, Scheila Gonzalez play alto sax as no-one (+ vocal+keyboard) and she's funny, Joe Travers on drum, Pete Griffin on bass, Jamie Kime on guitar, Billy Hulting percussion,are also great great great musicians. Three hours of music, how can they play all those complicated parts LIVE ?
The selection of songs is terrific. Go Go Go buy it. It's a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dream concert, March 3 2004
This review is from: Exposed (Audio CD)
This albun include a funky live version of tubular bell (1) witch is surprising, different from the original, very good. It also include a compact live version of Incantation, very near to the original version. This concert is in the mind of all those lucky poeples who were there, about 20 musicians live, good songs, A dream concert !!!
