SUNDAY FOR SAMMY 2012. Many thanks for sending me the Sunday for Sammy DVD so quickly. This is a highly entertaining, amusing and well produced DVD. In addition, the three fantastic songs performed by the excellent Joe McElderry make it essential viewing for his many fans. Jo O
Alex Glasgow - Northern Drift & Joe Lives My CD of Northern Drift and Joe Lives! arrived this morning - many thanks for the speedy service, it's much appreciated. Many years ago I had a LP version of Joe Lives! and really enjoyed John Woodvine's performance. Sadly, somewhere along the way in various house moves and de-clutterings it went astray and I thought it was gone for good. I had not been able to find a new copy in any format anywhere. But just the other day I was prompted to do a new Google search for John Woodvine and Joe Lives! and found your firm and all your marvellous material, and there it was, hence my order. I am very pleased to have a fresh new copy of Joe Lives! It's playing now as I type this message. I'm trying not to sing along too loud... As an expat-Geordie I'll be coming back for more of your recordings. Best regards Alan T

The Owen Brannigan Story DVD Sir, 79years, ex-geordie, ex GP, may I say how much I enjoyed your DVD about Owen Brannigan. The accompanist interviewed was superb. But why no mention of Ernest Lush? Their "Friday Night" recitals were superb. Clever, witty, superbly professional, etc. Regards, James B
