Live / The Penthouse Tapes
Live / The Penthouse Tapes
Price: £11.01

4.0 out of 5 stars Odd combination, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The individual albums should be familiar to SAHB fans, so I won't dwell on the content. But they are an odd pairing to say the least. I assume that they were coupled in order of release.
The track listings are wrong. The Penthouse Tapes tracks are listed as Live, and the Live tracks are listed as The Penthouse Tapes.
The pairing does represent good value for money though if you compare it with buying them individually.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Solo Album, 14 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: She's The Boss (Audio CD)
Please buy another version of this great solo album, as this one is tinny, toneless, and sounds like copied audiocassettes used to in the old days.

126 page hardback book in French language, covering the battles around the El-Alamein "line" from June to November 1942.
MANY PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED PHOTOGRAPHS!!!

Many Colour maps.
Several Orders of battle.
Breakdowns of the numbers and types of tanks available for the major engagements.
Comprehensive Bibliographies.

A must for all Western Desert fans, even those of whom French is NOT their first language.

Part two of a two part history of the Indian divisions in North Africa, the ideal partner for the Loyalty and Honour series. Highly recommended.

A great way of exploring the Moor, and taking in some of it's lesser known treasures. A seminal work. Thank you John Hayward.


Finding God in the Shack: Conversations on an Unforgettable Weekend
Finding God in the Shack: Conversations on an Unforgettable Weekend
by Randal D. Rauser
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Randal misses the point, 24 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a huge fan of "The Shack" and having had a "Mack" experience myself (though thankfully not ending in mutilation and murder) I feel that in his criticisms of the book "The Shack" Randal Rauser may (or may not, I am not a Theologian) have made some relevent theological statements, but has completely over-looked the whole point of the book. Which is, as I see it, to present the GodHead in such a way as to tear down some religious or denominational misconceptions about the Holy Trinity in such a powerful and inspired way as to actually restore some of its readers faith in God, and understanding of how and why He acts the way he does. This is nothing short of miraculous, and has fully restored my relationship with God. And that of others wiith whom i have spoken.
I was originally lent a copy ten or so years after my "Missy" moment, and it undid all the damage caused by ten years of not undersanding why God allowed it to happen, and the subsequent stagnation of my relationship with Him.
If you have not read the Shack, READ IT NOW!!! If you have, find a better book appraising it than this.
How sad that Randal Rauser, a Man of God is, with his lukewarm anaysis of the "Shack" possibly denying needy people their restoration.


Last Change Boogie
Last Change Boogie

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 4 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Last Change Boogie (Audio CD)
I really enjoyed this release from my 2nd favourite Christian artist (after Steve Taylor).
If you enjoyed " Give him your Blues", you are sure to enjoy "Last Chance Boogie", as the styles are very similar.
The Harmonica playing is very much in evidence on most tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware, 4 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panzer in Nordafrika. (Hardcover)
This book is largely a collection of photographs, most of which have been previuosly published, and accompanying text. The text is in GERMAN.
There are shortened English translations of the photo captions.
Still worth 4 stars though.

I would like to have been told in advance that this product was not just pure Magnesium, but also contained other substances. Similar products by other manufacturers are more clearly labeled.


Loyalty and Honour: Divisions Pt. 1: The Indian Army, September 1939-August 1947
Loyalty and Honour: Divisions Pt. 1: The Indian Army, September 1939-August 1947
by Chris Kempton
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Seminal, 18 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An absolute must for anyone interested in the Indian Army in WWII.
Brief descriptions of the major engagements.
Full details of the Brigades that made up the Divisions, and the time periods in which they were integral.
As far as I know, there is no other work to compare with this.
