posted a review of Gentle Giant - Motive. over 6 years ago
This is a reissue of Acquiring the Taste from PolyGram Germanys Motive budget series. This may have come out after the band split in the early '80s. The cover is inaccurate as the long term lineup are shown as they were in the late '70s, and the sleeve ... See full review
posted a review of Black Sabbath - Greatest Hits Feat. Ozzy Osbourne. over 7 years ago
This edition of the album highlights Ozzys name apparently to cash in on his rising solo career at the time. Nothing wrong with that. This is a good album for beginners, highlighting early days.
posted a review of REO Speedwagon - Playlist: The Very Best Of REO Speedwagon. over 7 years ago
This is technically 1988s The Hits repackaged with "I Don't Wanna Lose You" and "One Lonely Night" replaced with "Golden Country" and "Keep the Fire Burnin'" and the track order rearranged. Either way, this is a good collection for casual and novice ... See full review
posted a review of The Traveling Wilburys* - Volume 1 / Volume 3 / Traveling Videos. over 7 years ago
This pirate release has more material than the official remaster does. Theres still enough material here for a Volume 2 and 4 (other bootlegs have done this already). All thats lacking is a clean version of "Maxine" (which I first heard on a solo ... See full review
posted a review of John Lennon - Collector's Edition. over 7 years ago
I bought this collection thinking it was made in Canada. Can't tell exactly. Still interesting to have. All the same songs these compilations usually have, knowing Lennons solo track record is painfully short compared to his peers. However, if its ... See full review
posted a review of The Moody Blues - Out Of This World. over 7 years ago
I saw this at the shop, but when I first did, I didn't bother 'cos it was just another comp with the same old hits, but then I decided to get it, trying to find something on short notice and on a budget. When I took it home and had a listen, I ... See full review
posted a review of The Beatles - The Beatles. over 7 years ago
I got a copy like the one above and it claims to be from the UK, but I'm looking at the bottom of the discs saying "Mfd. by EMI Mfg.", which is usually seen on CDs made in the US and Canada, when UK editions would say "EMI Swindon" referring to the town ... See full review

This might be a pirate from the mainland as EMI would be releasing it officially, not Universal. If you know the labels, seeing the wrong one is the first sign that the missus didn't sign off on it.
posted a review of Anderson* • Wakeman* • Howe* - Original Members Of Yes. over 8 years ago
Only Anderson was an original member (though not in the band right now), so whoever put this together knows sod all about Yes. These are just licenced solo tracks first released by Eagle Rock or a small label. The sleeve is obviously not Roger Dean! ... See full review
posted a review of Fleetwood Mac & Christine Perfect - Albatross. over 8 years ago
This is a compilation of the early blues Mac and Christine McVie's first solo album from Blue Horizon. It's obvious to the fans that this is a cash-in on the 1975 album and subsequently 'Rumours'. My copy is from Holland as part of a budget series ... See full review
posted a review of Supertramp - Slow Motion. over 8 years ago
This is the last Supertramp studio album that may ever be released. It is a bit anti-climatic. The title track's OK, but then it's not as exciting. For the first time since 'Free as a Bird', Rick Davies dominates all the songs. On "Goldrush" he ... See full review

Even though it's counterfeit, it is said that Vee-Jay made their own and sold them at shops and auctions to bring in money, even though they had that legal row. Is there any truth to this? With the hole between the title and band name, that's the first ... See full review
posted a review of Supertramp - Crisis? What Crisis? / Even In The Quietest Moments.... over 8 years ago
I happened to find this at one of my favourite shops. Even though I had the 1977 album on German LP (bought at the same place; small town), I needed the other one. I think perhaps A&M Canada released this to fill the void between 'Paris' and '...famous ... See full review
posted a review of Marillion - Script For A Jester's Tear. over 8 years ago
This is the album that started it all, in early 1983. The following that Marillion started to build with "Market Square Heroes" were hungry for a full album. It wasn't a huge, huge success, as this was the age of Jacko, Duran Duran, and Culture Club. ... See full review
posted a review of Duran Duran - Duran Duran. over 8 years ago
Albums like this are not uncommon, as they've been around for decades. This compilation is more of an impulse item at best, yet a bonafide collectors item as it is rare enough. I saw this at the shop and bought it straight away. It has familiar ... See full review
