1.0 out of 5 stars Badly made, 11 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the second onesie we've ordered, both developed a hole in the crotch seam on the first day of wearing. Clearly, from other reviews here with the same issue, the manufacturing quality is pretty poor. A great shame as it would be a lovely garment otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect Christmas pressie!!, 16 Dec. 2011
I bought this for my partner as a bit of "nostalgia" over the holiday season! It was beautifully packaged, a great assortment and plenty of it!! I thought it was actually great value for money. The best bit? The huge quantity left him feeling generous, so he shared it with me!!

We'll certainly be ordering again ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Keith Kendrick is amazing!, 16 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Home Ground (Audio CD)
This album is folk music at it's best. Keith's treatment of the music is adventurous yet sensitive. Wonderful - could listen to this album for hours (and frequently do).

5.0 out of 5 stars Uncompromisingly traditional..., 8 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Fearful Symmetry (Audio CD)
...and quite right too! This album was recommended to me by a friend, and I have to be honest I'm not the greatest traditional music fan... but in this instance I'm prepared to be converted! The album is an excellent interpretation of traditional song and has resisted the temptation to appeal to a more "popular" market. The track "Seeds of Love" will clearly be the album's popular appeal number, but even that remains loyal to it's traditional roots.
The cyclic nature of the album is effective and his ability as an arranger as well as a performer is evident. It's also great to hear such a well produced album - I can't help feeling that so many albums I've heard in this genre tend to feel a bit "over-processed"!
Apparently this is a debut album, which leads me to wonder whatever next for Jon Loomes. His instrumental versatility is stunning - I'm fascinated by the appearance of a hurdy-gurdy in a Polka set - and there is a great balance of instrumentation from fiddle and vocals to pipes and melodeons. To give him all the credit would in fairness do an injustice to the other musicians who played on the album - the melodeon playing by Paul Scourfield in particular is just stunning!
If you're not into traditional music - give this album a chance anyway - I've played it to several friends who've been surprised to find themselves getting quite into it!!
I just have to make a comment on the sleeve notes - they are hilarious - perhaps this was the one departure from tradition that Jon Loomes decided to make - wisely so, as it makes the album deliciously unpretentious!
