Stylish and high quality. Shoes perfect - my thin feet rather less so! A smaller size would not have helped here
Sadly returned

Very good value for money. Robust and easy to handle - has a good range for our purpose as we use it to keep track of the action when we have the dogs out on night patrol! Still going strong after many months of use. Highly recommended.

Good product - well-made and looks as if it will do the foul weather job admirably. A little bit roomy - I am a reliable size 4 - but will therefore take a thick sock. Very comfortable and is stylish enough to wear even when NOT snowing!

Saw this first as a cinema showing - it loses quite a lot in translation to the DVD format but nonetheless it is a visually stunning and thoroughly engaging evening's entertainment. It cost me 10p from a city council library!

This review is from: Gabor Womens Trudy Boots (Shoes)
Gabor always reliable on fit and quality. Boots are very comfortable, can take a woolly sock and look well with jeans or smart trousers. Less rugged-looking than they appear in the picture but none the worse for that. At the price - a real bargain and I can expect a few good years from them.
IJA.


Herbert von Karajan A Christmas Concert
Herbert von Karajan A Christmas Concert
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars My very own Christmas Concert, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my second purchase of this CD - I wore out the previous one over two seasons. I play it repeatedly from end of November to end of February!
Corelli, Torelli, Locatelli (and other) - wonderful ancient 'elli's and their sublime Christmas music. In the really old-fashioned sense of the word - Awesome!
Karajan is famed for wanting his music to sound "beautiful" - and this does.
Seems almost bad taste to mention the price - but - being practical - costs almost nothing!
Contains:
Corelli - Concerto grosso fatte per la notte di Natale
Manfredini - Concerto grosso per il Santissimo Natale
Torelli - Concerto Pastorale per il Santissimo Natale
Locatelli - Concerto grosso
Gabrieli - Canzona a 8
It finishes with Gruber's 'Silent Night' - but I don't play that track in February!

This review is from: Serpico [DVD] [1973] (DVD)
Good entertainment - bit hard to watch his struggles in the first half of the film (knowing it was a real -life story) but glad we persevered as ultimately satisfying to some extent! Al Pacino excellent as always - additionally, good extra feature on making of the film.
So....... value for money!

Saw this pair working within a larger group at a 'Verbier Festival Concert' (sadly - only on a DVD!) and was impressed with
the strength of the performances - so bought this to see how they sounded as a duo and was NOT disappointed. Both very strong personalities and make lovely music together! Anyone considering this CD ................. should buy!
(Can also recommend the DVD (Bought on Amazon!) Verbier 10th Anniversary Festival Concert celebrated with a 'Piano Extravaganza')

This review is from: Foyle's War - Series 7 [DVD] (DVD)
An excuse for me to indulge in modern 'review-speak' - What not to like!
Well, not if one enjoys watching Michael Kitchen in anything. Everyone knows what to expect (and not to have to endure) in Foyle's War) - comfortable entertainment. Recommend.
