Legend 30th Anniversary Remaster
Legend 30th Anniversary Remaster
Price: £18.19

5.0 out of 5 stars A very fine item to behold, 10 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely item to behold. Of course, like so many people, I already had an original copy, but for me this was worth purchasing for the very fine cover and booklet. The Blu Ray version is interesting to play back against the CD version and hear the improvement in quality even though the comparability of the spend on my CD v blu ray player is not fair. The blu ray version sounds smoother, more detailed and relaxed even; the harshness associated with the CD version is reduced.

Not much to say that has not already been said about the music on the CD, but I guess you know what it is and know that it is a seminal collection of recordings anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good straight forward catflap., 10 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Smarter than the old one. Fitted on easily enough. A simple and straightforward cat flap. The door panel that can be dropped in at the back to prevent 'unauthorised' access is good. Plastic felt a little more brittle, but has not broken yet, so may be OK.

Case Mate Barely There Cases for Apple iPhone 5 - Grey

3.0 out of 5 stars Its fine for the money, 10 Sep 2014
Its fine for the money. It discolours fairly easily and the sides are a little too shallow to confidently protect the screen when face down on a surface. The case has a nice feel in the hand and is pretty slim. May be a bit harder in compound than I was expecting and therefore does not absorb impact quite as much I would expect. Looks tidy overall but I do not expect to last me as long as my last case (a more expensive one) before looking shabby.

Bought as a replacement for a similar item that had deteriorated through age and use. Useful item that does what it says.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classy Album, 7 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: American Interior (Audio CD)
Interesting album that reveals more through repeated listening. A couple of very catchy hooks encourage you to get into the depths of the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original, 8 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sounds great remastered and still fresh. A track that has lost none of its originality and has not dated to my ears.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, 8 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These were as a novelty gift and they went down well, especially as they had a certain likeness to the recipient (I know, I have strange friends).

A good laugh and reasonable value for the quality; they didn.t cost a lot and won't last forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just so well done - it will last for years, 7 Dec 2013
I was allowed to purchase this once it was available on condition I waited until December to listen; which only seems appropriate. I am glad I have waited; so much better to hear this wonderful CD in the approach to Christmas. I have played it a few times so far and its getting better with each listen. Just two songs that are familiar to me but all the others are so well written and presented in a variety of fitting styles, all capitalising on the gentle vocal refrains of Mr Lowe.

A new classic for me and earnestly recommended.

I had sort of forgotten about this track but it has been great to hear it again. Great cover - exactly of the period.
