The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes <b>DVD</b> ~ Jeremy Brett
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
Ooo, ooo, ooo, Jeremy Brett. I just can't get enough of him as Sherlock 'olmes! He's so fabulous to look at, such an interesting face, and the dialogue, and the gestures! But enough about him. I was afraid we wouldn't like this as well as, say, "Hound of the Baskervilles," because Edward Hardwick, who plays Watson after this first season of Holmes, does not play Watson in this set. David Burke is Watson. But you know what? He's just fabulous as Watson! In fact, I've deduced that they chose Edward Hardwick to play Watson based on David Burke! Anyway, not to fear, Burke is at least an equal to Hardwick. And Burke certainly holds his own next to Brett: Check out the scene in "The Solitary… Read more
12 Greatest Hits ~ Patsy Cline

4.0 out of 5 stars Just a bit too country, Jan. 13 2003

(Perhaps I'm mistaken when I recall that Patsy originally did both songs???)
Anyway, I purchased Patsy, somewhat reluctantly, to add to my female vocalist collection, which are largely Black vocalists (with some of favorites being Ella Fitzgerald, Natalie Cole, Dionne… Read more

First Issue Story ~ Dinah Washington
5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamite Dinah, Jan. 13 2003
This was one of two Dinah Washington's CD's I recently acquired, having not even heard her sing before! I figured I'd give her a try since I love the likes of and listen almost constantly to one version or another of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack, Dionne Warwick, and Diana Ross. All these Black Beauties, including the new-to-only-me Dinah, have just marvelous voices, fantastic lyrics, and are wonderful, uplifting, and soothing to listen to. Never depressing. Music is rarely made today like the likes of this.
Dinah's "First Issue" is very well-rounded music. With this two-CD set, I simultaneously purchased… Read more
