Eleanor McEvoy: Love Must Be Tough        (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
  October 6, 2008

When you open the digipak the first thing you see is Proudly Presenting-The South King Street Band-featuring arrangements by Peter Beckett and vocals by Eleanor McEvoy. After listening to the album that sums it up pretty darn good. This is unlike the other two Eleanor discs that I have, Early ... more

John in his review wasn't to thrilled with this release. Being as I had already ordered but not received it I was disappointed and felt I had wasted my money. As it turns out I throughly enjoy this album and it definitly wasn't of money. I have no problem with his description of this album as New ... more
Roy Orbison: Black & White Night        (4 of 5 found this review helpful)

Songs and arrangements similar to the new David Elias album. After listening in surround tried to listen ... more

This isn't a typical Elton John album in that it had no hit songs and wasn't nearly as pop. A definite country/rock feel to the album ... more

The Who's Orchestral Quadrophenia on DGG
March 26, 2015
I'm still waiting for the SACD of the orchestral version of "Tommy" that was released on the Ode label back in the 70's. I have Quadrophenia in surround on bluRay and find it boring beyond measure and have never been able to listen to it completely through, same goes for the SACD of Bread's Greatest Hits. I fall asleep during Bread and ... more
