5.0 out of 5 stars Super Sondheim, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sondheim musical productions in this country are all too rare - so it's a delight to be able to sample this staged concert version which boasts superb performances and production. It rewards playing again and again. I've had it for less than fortnight and have played it 4 times so far - being further enriched with something new with each viewing.

It does the job perfectly adequately - though a switch if putter has helped my resluts with the flat stick more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good service, 30 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I originally sent for the wrong product but I was quickly reimbursed - almost before I had sent for the item I should have chosen in the first place. Swift delivery on both occasions and the product has made a tremendous difference to my shaving experience. Just a shade expensive I thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humph at his peak., 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some of my earliest records were Humph on 78rpm. Listening to these other early recordings gave great pleasure. It's too easy to think of Humph as a "wit" chairing I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue but he was also a leading British jazz musician from the 50's and 60's and I still miss his wonderfully eclectic radio programme, The Best of Jazz.

Nothing new here but if you missed some of this early British jazz then my advice is to catch up. Tracey and Hayes in top form.

This review is from: Demon Barber (Hardcover)
A fine journalist and interviewer - though a sometimes contentious one. Always readable - even years after first written. You don't have to agree with all her conclusions to enjoy.


The Comfort Of Strangers
The Comfort Of Strangers

Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.59

4.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing, 19 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a great admirer of Ian McEwan I was more than happy to buy this book and although his novels always stir the emotions and the mind, I did find this one particularly disturbing. I would recommend it for all but the faint-hearted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprise, 19 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had expected an epic since this was the book on which Francis Ford Coppola partially based his fine film, Apocalypse Now! That's no criticism though. It is as long as it needs to be and like much other source material for movies is well worth reading on its own merit.

5.0 out of 5 stars First class, 19 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for my 7-year-old grandson and fulfils expectations. A handsome beast, the drum has already given him lots of enjoyment (enabling him to play an instrument to which he was introduced at school). Good value for the money - though I'd advise the seller to use a speedier courier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 19 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikita [DVD] (DVD)
Superb Luc Besson film with Anne Parillaud absoutely stunning as the nihilistic drug-taking young woman who is turned into a state killing machine. Sounds unlikely but her transformation is convincingly drawn. I bought this to replace a rather poor VHS version. Worth every penny
