Howlin' Wolf: The Complete RPM & Chess Singles As & Bs 1951-62
Howlin' Wolf: The Complete RPM & Chess Singles As & Bs 1951-62
Price: 13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't be Moaning at Midnight or Crying at Daybreak if you invest in this., 18 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After having only one HW compilation CD for nearly 20 years decided to buy this excellent 11 year overview of the great man's recordings between '51 and 62. Excellent value for money at 10 or so for 80 recordings. Confident that (God willing) I'll still playing this in 20 years time.

Treat yourself.


BAGBASE MESSENGER BAG (FRENCH NAVY)
BAGBASE MESSENGER BAG (FRENCH NAVY)
Offered by COOZO
Price: 7.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Bagged a good bag, 13 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent bag for the price. The size is good, allowing for an A4 diary, A4 folders/wallets with documents, a tablet, pens, bottle of water to be taken to meetings.

Don't feel confident that it will last for years but if it lasts for a couple of years I would be very happy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tiny Death Star Destroys Itself, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Wars: Tiny Death Star (App)
This is a great little game that you can pick up and put down as and when. Very cute renditions of Star Wars characters and good fun being quite absorbing for short periods of time (unless you don't want to be a lift operator). BUT.... Like many others I have great difficulty getting it to load my Kindle Fire HD. I am up to about to 60 levels and frustratingly, given the amount of time if have spent (i.e. wasted) on it, it is very hit and miss as to whether it loads or not. I am currently attempting to load it for the 9th time having got the 'tinydeathstar has stopped' message several times. Whilst this has been an ongoing issue it is getting significantly worse the further I have progressed into the game to the point where I am considering uninstalling it.

This is disappointing and for this reason I can't recommend it to others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent freebie, 28 Jan 2014

My three year old loves this app, particularly the 3d interactive scenes. I recommend it, especially while it is free. I am looking out for other WonderBooks and whilst I would obviously like them to be free would pay for them.

This is a poor quality app with no substance to it. By three year old loves Justin but could not see the point of it!


The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld - Deluxe Edition
The Orb's Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld - Deluxe Edition

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic whichever edition, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For me this has to be a 5 star rating. Nostalgia for my student days aside, listening to it 20 years on it is still fresh, absorbing, vibrant and a complete listening experience either in the background while you work or study or to sit and fully concentrate on. TOABTU is a classic album and I don't think that I can add much to the descriptions and plaudits already eloquently expressed by other reviewers. The basic album has been remastered, not the the old one really needed it, but the sound for me is crisper and more vibrant. The extra disc is a great addition to the package with some .

If you want to explore electronica, ambient techno or chill out music this is highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than Okie Dokie, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Okie Dokie (Audio CD)
One of my favourite Orb albums - at this stage you either like them or you don't. If you liked Ultraworld and UFOrb and wanted to explore some more, I would recommend this to you. If you are new to the Orb it's not a bad introduction. Their stuff with Lee Scratch Perry is good too, particularly the second one (More tales).

Okie Dokie is a compilation but feels like an album. The contents are much better than the title...

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible - Avoid, 21 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pinball Arcade (App)
Very misleading 'free' product - required to 'upgrade'; for cash, naturally; to get anything above a free sample table (not ST:TNG when I had downloaded it). Why waste your time? Downloaded and deleted within 5 minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Comp, Great Band, 16 Mar 2012
There are a few compilations of this band but this could well be the best wrestling the title away from 'All the Best'. At 42 tracks it's comprehensive and for a fiver it's excellent value. Alternative Ulster, At the Edge, Just Fade Away, Guitar and Drum and, of course, Suspect Device are worth the price of admission alone.

A generous selection from the glory years plus the cherrys picked from later material (and some of these are real gems).

If you like witty, rough edged but melodic punk then SLF are for you.

Suggest this CD as a starting point to SLF then Inflammable Material, Nobody's Heroes, Hanx and Guitar and Drum. Catch them live if you get the opportunity.
