Sabichi 83913 Mini Oven
Sabichi 83913 Mini Oven

4.0 out of 5 stars Just What I Needed, 9 Mar. 2011
I already have a Mini-oven but as it is becoming a bit "long in the tooth", I thought I'd better get a new one. This has everything I need to bake and grill a variety of foods and it works perfectly. One tiny criticism: I wish the power cable was a bit longer - this one only just reaches the socket!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Very Best of Mozart, 9 Mar. 2011
If you really want the very best of the Mozart Concertos, you need this and Voume 2. On both disks Mitsuko Uchida gives a masterly interpretation of these wonderful works which range from the deeply tragic Nos 19 & 24 (the only two in a minor key) to the gentle lyricism of No. 21 and the melancholy beauty of No. 23. These are not to be missed as they represent the peak of Mozart's genius. Unfortunately you do need to buy both sets (Volumes 1 & 2) to get them all - the indispensable C min (No. 24) being in Volume 2 and the others mentioned above in Volume 1. The quality of both sets is very high both in recording and performance and I thoroughly recommend them!

Amazon Kindle Keyboard Leather Case (3rd Generation - 2010 release)
Price: £30.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for your Kindle!, 30 Jan. 2011
Although it might seem inordinately expensive (and I've no doubt that those cleverer with their hands than I could make one for themselves), some sort of cover is essential for a Kindle. Most importantly it protects the screen area, but it also adds to the portability of the device, gives some protection if you drop it and looks good too! I strongly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed!, 30 Jan. 2011
I bought this device to replace a similar table-top hob which had failed after 10 years constant use. This hob is more efficient than the old one, was promptly delivered and would be perfect for anyone (like me) who does not have oven hotplates. It also looks much better than my old one - and didn't cost much more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like I remembered it!, 30 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Les Miserables (Audio CD)
It was back in late 1980s that I first saw Les Miserables in London - and was duly impressed. This recording brought back the most pleasant memories of that experience. For those who saw the London production back then, this has to be the definitive version!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Comprehensive History!, 3 Oct. 2009
For those fans who want to know more about Les Paul's work with other artistes, this CD is a must! There are recordings with nearly all the great performers of the 1940s and 50s, and one learns just how much value he adds to their performances with his accompaniments. A great CD for the long drive!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Indeed!, 3 Oct. 2009
This review is from: The Ultimate Collection (Audio CD)
For Les Paul and Mary Ford fans, all the best of their output is here - and the quality amazes! You really don't need to look anywhere else to find definitive versions of their greatest hits. Some of Les's guitar work is still unbelievable, as are his recording techniques. Buy this with confidence!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not This Russell Watson, 9 July 2009
This review is from: Outside In (Audio CD)
Quite frankly this CD was embarrassingly awful. Russell's voice seemed to have lost practically all the quality which made his early recordings so appealing and the choice of material was neither one thing or another - neither classical enough for those of us who like that side of him, and not "pop" enough the rest! For heaven's sake he is not even always in tune.
I gave this CD away to a friend who is more of a fan than I am, and I think she put it out for recycling!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite What You Expected, 12 May 2009
If you, like me, admired Joni's early work and think that Both Sides Now is the best song she ever wrote, you will be disappointed by some of the choices for this "very best of" compilation. Joni herself chose the tracks, so presumably she thinks they are her best. Some of the very best - 'Big Yellow Taxi', 'Carey' and 'California' - are there but not 'A Case of You' 'All I Want' 'Chelsea Morning' and 'My Old Man'. Instead we have 'Dreamland' and 'The Jungle Line' - which only have rhythm accompaniments - and a drearily slow and over-orchestrated 'Both Sides Now' which manages to lose all the naive charm of the original! This is not to say that the compilation is not interesting - it is, as is all her work - but it may not be what you would have chosen as "the very best of Joni Mitchell"!
