Just discovered we'd lent out our Christmas music and not had it returned so this was a speedy stop gap. I think it is better than the two CDs we lent out.

Friends loved our cork version of this item so we asked if they's like one for Christmas. When we told them there was a pebble version they jumped at the chance.

Thatnk you Radio 3's Essential Classics! I heard concerto no7 on there and just had to own a copy. It is so contemporary in feel and execution.

The others are equally as enchanting.

EC is so much better than Classic FM - no annoying adverts!

She is a mad needlewoman nd is setting up in shop in the third bedroom. This adds to her collection of books on techniques. She thought it was wonderful.

Couldn't fault the service, surprised there were only 5 tabs in the box.
Still needs must, as they say, I suppose. They seem to have done the job.

This just looks so good on the windowsill of my newly decorated kitchen. It is unlike any other kitchen roll holder I've seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 21st Century Runrig? Maybe..., 2 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Skerryvore (Audio CD)
They are from Tiree and they can really play. I guess they all learned as nippers for something to do (Tiree has a very small population and I suppose making your own entertainment is taken for granted.)The line up has drums, bass & guitar plus two types of accordion, a fiddle and live (as opposed to electric) bagpipes.

I bought this on the recommendation of a very nice young lady at Lochranza Distillery on Arran, where they played in 2010. I wasn't sure what to expect but I am very very pleased I bought it. It may be similar to Runrig (or maybe as they were 35 years ago); it is equally full of infectious intrumentals and catchy self penned songs. It's a more Celtic "Heartland" if you really want a reference point.

I had the great fortune to see them at the Buccleuch Centre in Langholm last month (October 29th 2011) and they were brilliant. Their playing was excellent and the mood they evoked was totally captivating. I was able to speak with the band after the gig and they seemed very grounded and sensible (and not above coming out front to meet the punters - I can't imagine Runrig would be able to do that these days).

Skerryvore (self titled) is, confusingly, their third album and a fourth is on its way in the new year. Will I be buying it? You bet!

Oh, BTW, the distillery sells the nicest blended whiskey I've ever drunk - the Lochranza blend. Its malts are rather good too.

OK not much to say really. My acting copy was pretty tatty (we're putting it on over Christmas) so I bought a newer one. It said second hand but was actually pristine. It is doing the job - books down on the 16th!

Very very speedy delivery. I was really impressed.
I was concerned there wouldn't be enough power cable to reach but my fears were groundless. Now my Packard Bell Easy One Silver works much much quicker with all my plug ins.

It even allowed my G3 usb dongle to function perfectly too!
