Josephine Dressing Stool in Off White
Josephine Dressing Stool in Off White

3.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly serviceable, 10 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The dressing stool looks very attractive to the casual observer, and is perfectly adequate for its purpose. However, it's not the best quality item I have ever purchased; a good look underneath shows a lack of substance, and one of the screws holding the seat to the frame does not hold.

At the price, it's certainly no bargain; but it will do.

The digital remastering of this album destroys everything that was wonderful in Doris's vocals. Get the original if you can, and pay whatever, but don't buy this junk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mellower, but still great, 21 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Coming Up For Air (Audio CD)
Everything about Davy Knowles is the stuff legends are made from: superb voice, exquisite instrumentals, fabulous arrangements - the man is magic.
Coming up for Air is mellower than the previous Roll Away (when Back Door Slam had different personnel)album, and maybe that's a little bit of a shame. The rawness is missing from this album; but if you take it on it's own without trying to compare it - it's up there with the best blues rock you will ever hear. Stupendous.


Tea Time For The Traditionally Built
Tea Time For The Traditionally Built
by Alexander McCall Smith
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the best..., 8 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...for Alexander Mcall Smith. The previous novel in the series was a bit formulaic - but this one hits the stride again and the lovely ladies are, once again, sheer detective heaven.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a bit naff..., 8 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Masters Watch & Scorer (Misc.)
...but it does more or less what you want it to. However, it's not much good for the complete golf beginner who will take over a 100 strokes in a round, 'cos it doesn't go beyond 99!

It's also a bit puny and will probably break after not too long, because the controls are stiff to use and it's VERY plasticky but, for the price....

Not much to say really - it's a cable and it does what it says on the packet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maestro, 8 Oct 2009

The master at work in a huge compilation of his best songs. One or two missing but encompasses the couple of decades when Frankie was tops. He was magical to watch and to listen to - and this brings back soooo many memories of a great crooner.

Not a good buy if you really like steel band music. It's poor quality both in terms of the recording and the music. Nothing to recommend it.


The Wonderful World of Dissocia & Realism (Modern Plays)
The Wonderful World of Dissocia & Realism (Modern Plays)
by Anthony Neilson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 8 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The writing and invention in this play is a joy. NOT for the faint-hearted amateur group to perform, but if you have the nerve.....it's a mixture of Alice in Wonderland and Wind in the Willows, but definitely for adults because it's edgy, dark, exciting, innovative and...yep..brilliant.
I would love to have this slightly abridged so that it could be performed in 1-act festival - but I can't get hold of the author and his agent doesn't respond. Any ideas?

5.0 out of 5 stars A geat re-find, 8 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought the Surform was dead and gone, and such a relief to find it hasn't. A REALLY useful tool; my previous one lasted 15 years (until someone borrowed it and kept it!) - and it felt like my left hand had been removed. The relief is palpable!
