A Picture History of Goring and Streatley.
A Picture History of Goring and Streatley.
by Goring and Streatley Local History Society.
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Memories to cherish, 28 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rare and interesting book full of old b/w pictures showing the views of these particular villages that I had pleasure of visiting. Nice glossy paperback cover and interesting history of the impossibly beautiful space lost in green fields of Oxfordshire.


The Heart of a London Village: Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution, 1839-1990
The Heart of a London Village: Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution, 1839-1990
by Vera Crane
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Highgate village, MY heart, 19 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Out of my whole London trip, I spent 2 separate days in Highgate village. It is a special place to my heart, and it's a bliss to actually read about it - the history, the pictures, the notes. I saw this particular book there in the village - in the bookstore but it was a bit too expensive for me, brand new. So I'm happy having my chance to buy it used in absolutely fine condition for only 1,5 GBP! Thanks to amazon, as always.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wham albums in one bundle, 19 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Classics (Audio CD)
Didn't find time to put my hands on "The music from the edge of heaven" before, so it was the great chance to take it all in one. After all, I realised that you can't find "Blue" anywhere released officially (CD-wise I mean) other than here, or on Japanese "Club Tropicana" single which is quite harder to find and to pay!

The audio interview worth having it, definitely. Other things were already on other bootlegs, but who cares.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rainbow 74 DVD, 19 Feb. 2016

Another old gem remastered, a must have for any Queen collector. Even though the early 70s era is not my favorite of them but Freddie is unique in every way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do they know it's Christmas CD, 19 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This cute fellow on the cover + the fact there's the live version from original Live Aid concert 1985 (not later attemps which were just parodies) won this all for me. And the price was laughable, so I am really pleased, least to say!


Hampstead Memories
Hampstead Memories

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Hampstead book, 18 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hampstead Memories (Paperback)
Failed to buy this while was in London, brand new in the bookstore it was really too expensive! But this place is so special and dear to my heart that I was haunted with desire to have it. So finally, the great stories and loads of fine pictures are forever here to cherish the memories of sitting there, feeling like edge of heaven, and looking down to the city from the Parliament Hill. Rich and interesting history of this special and beautiful place of London. Thanks amazon, as always.


Last Christmas [VINYL]
Last Christmas [VINYL]

5.0 out of 5 stars Anniversary edition colour vinyl, 30 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Last Christmas [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Very beautiful thing, mint & sealed for only 16,96 and laughable price for postage (which was extra quick and delivered by courier under my signature!). Absolutely surreal feeling but "Last Christmas" is really 30 years old. The plastic bag bears "Record Store Day" lable on the front, and the disc itself is really a beauty, red and green matching the total festive colors of Christmas/New Year mood!
Fantastic thing to have, a gem for a collector!

2.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of course I knew it's not official. But to be sold through amazon, I don't know... Absolutely all videos can/could be found on youtube in way higher quality. Literally every one of them I personally grabbed from there and it's not in such poor quality as presented in this compilation. The videos are: Tokyo press-conference Dec 2005, Interview to Mega channel (Greek) of 2004, Today show interview (US) 2004, Symphonica press conference in Royal Albert Hall, May 2011, Danish interview from Herning, August 2011. Maybe I forgot one or two. It's complete waste of money and I think that such things shouldn't being on sale at amazon. Though as for packaging and delivery, amazon is best as always.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a BIG thing for George, 8 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved the book most of all. Hardback glossy huge beauty, with up to date (2011) interview and nice large pictures.
The Faith CD + remixes CD = very nice. The LPs are just for my collection. But the DVD is a true gem - having all Faith videos and rare (in terms of being ever released officially interviews of him) interview special of 1988, aired originally by MTV at the time. Also has interview with Jonathan Ross, true pleasure. Surely both special and JR things can be found on youtube as everything else in this world, but the real quality and official release... People it was really happy move from Sony, for a change! And the boooook - oh I already said that! lol
