Another one I picked up for £3.00 this is probably my favourite album from ol' Jacky Jack.Have it on CD on a twofer set but great to have the way it was originally with a lovely gatefold sleeve and it sounds superb.

The Bee Gees are great!

Here's a couple of cool tracks from the 'Tales From The Brothers Gibb' box set.

As a rule Elton's 70's albums are outstanding and this is no exception.This one has Tiny Dancer one of his greatest songs. His LP packages were excellent too usually gatefold with illustrated colour lyric booklets.

I have to say I'm not the biggest fan of Nat King Cole, but I picked up this set this week and thought it was worthwhile highlighting. It features every Nat King Cole studio master that arranged and/or conducted by Nelson Riddle. It is one of those demonstrations of just how good a public domain release can be. This an 8CD boxed set, with a 40 page booklet, and the discs held in 4 gatefold sleeves, each holding 2 CDs (and each CD in its own inner sleeve as well). It is class all the way, and you get around 10 hours of music for the grand sum of £18. The label is "music milestones," but the design suggests that it is linked with the people who put together the American Jazz Classics and Essential Jazz Classics series. I've not got through all 8 discs yet, but the sound of what I have heard is very good indeed. The songs are in chronological order, but when you get to concept albums (such as Wild is Love), the songs are in the order on the original LP, which is a much better way of going about it that, say, the Complete Reprise set of Sinatra.

It's funny, I played this last week sometime, after not hearing it in maybe ten years. It surprised me how well is still holds up, with Robbie's vitality coming through every song. He has made better albums (Escapology may well be the best collection of songs, I would suggest), but there is something rather special about Life Thru a Lens.

Escapology is perhaps the better album, and possibly Robbie` best album, although I really like Intensive Care. But Life Thru a Lens, as you've said, Shane, holds up well and is bristling with great tracks.

In some ways, there's a Brit Pop sensibility at play with the likes of Lazy Days and Old Before I Die, the latter boasting some of that great Williams attitude. Whilst Angels and Let Me Entertain You are towering recordings and my favourites on the album. It's a good one. Very good. And one of the best debut albums, in my opinion, following on from what norrie said above about The Police's debut, coincidently.
