NY Cast Infinetly Superior to the London Company


By mistake I ordered the London Cast Recording of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris. While adequately performed, the London Cast maintains a "stiff upper lip" quality to their interpretations that lose the driven heartbreaking passion that so epitomized the New York production. Mort Schuman, Shawn Elliot and especially Ellie Stone capture Brel's little "playlets" of song so the listener understands and empathises with the performer living and suffering the emotions with them.

Bowie Is Back!!!


David Bowie has never been afraid to try new things despite of occasionally looking foolish or becoming unpopular. In this sense he transcends the normal category of pop musicians who are driven by record sales rather than their own personal visions. Given his determination to be original I certainly haven't liked everything he has done-- I am afterall a pop comsumer myself :) However, this new album is one of the best I have heard in years.Outstanding lyrics, production, music etc-- I have been listening to it constantly since I got it-- I like it much more than Thursdays Child-- which was itself a pretty good album.Keep on keepin on David Bowie...

How Could You Not Like John Denver?


Just bought this 2 cd set today.Not a bad selection put here together.The bonus disc here is a extra treat for everybody too.There are many John Denver hit packages out there to choose from.This set puts his most popular and beloved songs on one cd.I'm glad RCA released this as of the time of his 30th anniversary of his first greatest hits album.Listening to these songs makes me feel good,kinda lets me drift off to better thoughts.Which John always intended.His music was and is still "pure folk".The man knew how to write a good song.To pick a favorite song would be hard for me.So if you always wanted to get a John Denver cd,this would be it.Enjoy! Peace!
