5.0 out of 5 stars Great pair of boots for the price!, 6 Jan 2012
I bought a pair in June 2009 and it was the best £30 I ever paid on a pair of walking boots. They are very comfortable, stylish, sturdy and you can easily tackle hills up to munroes. I have done loads of munro walking in them over the last couple of years and they never let me down. I got 2 1/2 years out of them and they could still go on but they look so worn out, though remarkably all the bonding and suede is holding together well. So... Im now buying 2 pairs today because they dont make them any more and I suspect this is older stock still circulating....grab a bargain while you can.

There are a couple of points raised by other reviewers about them being waterproof. I would recommend regular coverage with a waterproofing spray to help this. Only once did I get soaked and this was because I was walking through bogs,which was my own stupidity in the first place. Dont expect most boots to deal with very heavily soaked ground or a whole day of heavy rain, they wont. These boots will deal with light to medium rain the whole day easily and keep your feet completely dry.

This is simply a great pair of boots at a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best, 20 Jan 2006
In short, this is without doubt THE best comprehensive overview of the band's work. All the work is chronological with superb liner notes and beautifully presented.

4.0 out of 5 stars long overdue for a re appraisal, 14 April 2003
This review is from: Shades Of Deep Purple (Audio CD)
This is a great recording, and only now beginning to be recognised as an 'almost' classic of the late 60's.

Let's face it, this is pretty heavy for '68 and its success in the U.S at the time bears this out. UK audiences wer'nt really ready for it. Richie obviously sees the way ahead in terms of the Hendrix style of guitar (remember Hendrix only came to the fore 18 months previous) and even for that alone it helped spearhead the idea of rock and progressive music.

The difficulty mark 1 Purple has always had is that so often their work has been reviewed by die hard heavy rockers that got into them thru that channel. I ask you to listen to it without genre limitations and what you'll find is a great piece of British late 60's art rock, that nods to the greats of the time, has great all round musicianship, and you still have to admire it's grooviness 30 plus years on.

The remastering is also of fantastic quality, while the mini booklet gives a great insight into the early exploits of the band.
