New Thing At Newport
New Thing At Newport

5.0 out of 5 stars There is still a touch of distortion at times on Barre Phillips' bass but this isn't too intrusive in such great music., 8 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Thing At Newport (Audio CD)
Buy this for the Archie Shepp set. It's marvellous and the remastering is an improvement on any other version I've heard. There is still a touch of distortion at times on Barre Phillips' bass but this isn't too intrusive in such great music.

I recently read Lancaster's second volume of autobiography and enjoyed it very much. I was delighted to find this reasonably well cared for first edition and shall read it soon with equal pleasure.


Seven Compositions (Trio) 1989
Seven Compositions (Trio) 1989

5.0 out of 5 stars A quite hard to find Braxton trio set from the 80s, 8 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Braxton recorded prolifically throughout the 80s (let's face it: Braxton *always* records prolifically), most notably with the line-up that included Marilyn Crispell on piano. This is a slight oddity, however, in that it is a trio recording and has the great percussionist Tony Oxley. I don't think Braxton and Oxley have recorded all that much together although they do play together fairly frequently. Anyway, if you like Braxton, you'll like this.


Uncommon Danger (Penguin Modern Classics)
Uncommon Danger (Penguin Modern Classics)
by Eric Ambler
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Penguin Modern Classic, 5 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Ambler, I love Penguin Modern Classics...but UNCOMMON DANGER isn't quite classic Ambler. It's enjoyable but it has a slightly jokey at times even farcical element to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous, 5 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought all four of the titles in this series so far -- this one is as beautiful as the rest. If you like Ravilious, and you enjoy beautifully produced art books then don't delay -- I have a feeling that this series won't be around forever. One day you'll look for a copy and find it o/p, with secondhand copies changing hands at £50-plus...

5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant, 5 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this little lamp. It's elegant, easy to fit, and a pleasure to use. The only thing I haven't really got used to is the daylight LEDs it uses. I'm sure they are better for reading by but I do miss the warm yellow glow that my old reading lamp had... I haven't checked to see whether the LEDs can be removed/replaced -- perhaps I should.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long awaited, 5 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Etudes [VINYL] LP + CD (Vinyl)
I have wanted this record for years but even though original Soul Note LPs are not rare or hard to find, this one never came up. I was delighted to find it being reissued on good quality vinyl along with a CD. This seller had it at the best price -- bar none!

Great value -- I use a Cross ball pen a lot and got tired of paying over the odds for refills


The Last Two Weeks of Georges Rivac
The Last Two Weeks of Georges Rivac

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A hard-to-find title, 5 Jun. 2014

Great value -- a little beat up (it is an ex-library copy, after all) but for the few pence it cost, who's complaining?

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent product, 5 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are lots of carbon fibre brushes out there but reviews suggest that this may well be the best. It's well made and once you get the hang of using it, works brilliantly.
