RM-Series Replacement Remote Control For PIONEER DV565A
RM-Series Replacement Remote Control For PIONEER DV565A
Offered by cherrypickelectronics
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good replacement for old remotes., 6 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace my original worn out remote controls. It worked perfectly straight away on both my Pioneer 454 and 565 dvd players.

5.0 out of 5 stars Right on target!, 23 Nov. 2014
This review is from: The Arrow (MP3 Download)
This is another excellent album from Jeffrey Dean Foster, following the brilliant Million Star Hotel. If you enjoy well crafted, well played songs that you can return to time and time again then give this a listen. As a reference point he's not a million miles removed from some of Tom Petty's stuff. I file him on my collection along with other American singer-songwriters such as Cliff Hillis. If you like this, you'll like Million Star Hotel (which has one of the best songs ever to drive to in Lily of the Highway) and his album with his earlier band The Pinetops, Above Ground and Vertical.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 9 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brain Salad Surgery (Audio CD)
I was hoping for something better here. I already own a single CD without bonus tracks of this on the Castle/Essential label. The original album mix on disc 1 of this set is dull and lifeless in comparison to my old CD. (I compared them on the hifi, on a CD walkman and in the car and the old disc sounded better in all cases). In fact, my LP sounds better than disc 1. I didn't think the sound quality of the bonus material on disc 2 or the material itself was very good either. To put this in context, I really like ELP. I bought all the LPs when they came out, all the CDs and some of the deluxe sets. (Those for the first album and Tarkus were fine).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value set, 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great value set - six excellent CDs and an excellent booklet. The only drawback is that it is very hard to get the CDs out of the packaging - I worry that they will break when I try to get them out. Edited addition to review: However, after about four days of experimentation I've finally found how out how the cd packaging works. You have to push down at the top edge of the disc in a direction parallel to the disc. This pushes it against the plastic springs at the bottom edge of the disc and releases the disc from the clips that hold it. Obviously I feel pretty stupid for not spotting this earlier, but just in case anyone else is struggling with the packaging...

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a bootleg., 5 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Old live recordings seem to be coming out more frequently, presumably due to copyrights expiring. The best one I've heard is the Allman Brothers one and the Flying Burritos one was awful. The Crosby and Nash one was just about okay and not quite as bad as the first reviewers made out given the source. This one is amongst the better ones. There are some slight sound glitches that you might not notice unless you are listening very carefully and the recording lacks a little of the brightness and clarity that official products usually have, but as a Styx fan I'm happy to have it and it is an enjoyable listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good recording, 13 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Shake Your Tree (Audio CD)
Some of these old radio shows are excellent quality (such as the Allmans one) and some are poor (such as the Flying Burritos one). This one is very close to excellent. The track selection is interesting and there are significant differences to the studio versions which adds to the interest. Recommended if you are Steve Miller fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Upgraded sound, 2 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: America's Choice (Audio CD)
This is one of a series of vinyl replica releases of the early Hot Tuna albums. The card cover and inner sleeve are all faithful to the original vinyl records. The sound on all of them is uniformly superb and in my opinion is superior to the earlier cd releases. There is a richness and fullness to the sound that almost makes it seem as though you are in the room with the band while they are playing.

This is a poor quality live recording. Lot of hiss between the tracks, reminiscent of old poor quality cassette tapes. Avoid unless you have to have everything by them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as described, 29 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LIVE AT ANAHEIM (Audio CD)
This set contains two discs not three. The dvd has all 20 tracks indicated plus the bonus features. The cd only has 17 tracks. The three that are starred in Amazon's list are not on the cd, only the dvd. However, it's a bargain at the price and well worth getting if you are a fan of Mr Gillan.

This is my favourite album of its kind since "Return of the Grievous Angel". If you like Gram and Emmylou I don't think you can fail to like this, so buy it.
