5.0 out of 5 stars Great songwriter, 8 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First saw Mickey Jupp supporting Elvis (Costello) and have been a fan ever since.
Have most of this material on the original albums, but enough oddities together with the book to make it worth getting this 3 disc set plus DVD.
Every fan will have an opinion on track selection, but there are no fillers here.
Lyrics are a particular strongpoint. Not on this set but probably my favourite opening line ever is a MJ song which starts "I've got a guitar shaped like a swimming pool" - genius!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable walking shoe, 21 Oct. 2015

Initially felt that instep was too pronounced and hard on the sole of my foot, but after a week they have worn in and are very comfortable.
Not enough rain yet to review goretex properties, but very pleased so far.

This review is from: 7 Classic Albums (Audio CD)
Bought to make up a bundle to get free delivery, but what a great set.
Chose it purely on the reputation of the Miles Davis Prestige albums which are fantastic.
Kenny Burrell on 5 of the 7 albums.
Great music and good sound quality - so glad I chose this.

Great fun and brought back fond memories of reading some of these books as a teenager.
By today's standards it's highly politically incorrect, but it is of it's time.
One spelling puzzles me - is the English word "clue" really written as "clew" in USA? It crops up repeatedly.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best, 8 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In A Silent Way (Audio CD)
Over the years I have bought a wide variety of Miles Davis albums covering the various styles of his glittering career.
This album is my outright favourite - I just love it. It would be in my desert island selection.
Of MD albums Big Fun is up there followed closely by Kind of Blue.
Also have a soft spot for On the Corner - my first MD purchase, on vinyl in about 1976 - took some getting used to but started me on a fascinating journey.

This review is from: Big Fun (Audio CD)
Have been playing repeatedly since purchasing a couple of weeks ago - standout track is "Go Ahead John". 2nd half of track is a wonderful slow blues with new things going on every time I listen - Rest of album is great but I'd have been happy if it was just this track!

Been a Chick Corea fan since buying the ECM "Return to Forever" album in 1974 but only recently bought this collaboration with Gary Burton.
The two instruments work so well together - love it.


Braun Series 3 3080 Wet and Dry Electric Foil Shaver
Braun Series 3 3080 Wet and Dry Electric Foil Shaver
Price: £69.99

4.0 out of 5 stars It's OK, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I hate buying a new shaver!
There is no way to find out whether a shaver suits you without buying. They are expensive enough not to treat as "disposable" and all you have to go on is reviews of individuals experiences when we all have different faces/beards.
Well I chose this model, it does a fair enough job, but unless you are fairly thorough it is easy for hairs on the neck crease line to get to the point where the shaver won't cut them and then you notice them when they get to about 1 cm in length.
Moustache and other face areas are cut well and face feels smooth after shaving.
I find the on/off button is just in the place my thumb sits when holding the shaver, so have sometimes accidentally turned it off mid shave.
I'm happy enough at the price - but still not found my perfect shaver (and probably never will).
