2.0 out of 5 stars Best avoided, 18 July 2014
I am very disappointed with this item. First of all, I had expected each of the four interchangeable tools to come with its own plug-in shaft. That is not the case. The brush cutter blade and strimmer head use the same shaft, so you have to swap them over. In fact, I bought this item specifically to have a quick changeover between them. I have found it impossible to slow the engine idle speed sufficiently to enable the clutch to disengage when the throttle is not pressed. This means that blades are always in motion from the instant the engine starts until it is either turned off or runs out of fuel. In my opinion this is very dangerous. Despite there being a locating lug in the push in shaft, the high level of vibration from the engine causes the cutting head to rotate as much as 90 degrees around the shaft axis, making it very awkward to use and again in my opinion very dangerous. The plastic handled screw used to tighten and hold the plug-in shafts in position no longer works and it is now impossible to remove the brushcutter shaft. The engine, despite being the same size (52cc) as my previous Ryobi seems much, much heavier on fuel consumption and the exhause fumes seem much worse also. The only positive thing that I can state about it is that the engine starts pretty easily, provided that you pull twice with the choke closed and then with it open. The double headed screwdriver that came with the toolkit is pathetic, since it does not fit into the handle supplied, and the instruction booklet has very unclear diagrams and pictures, and has been poorly translated into English with some items referred to with different names in the text from those used in the diagrams. All in all this is a product to avoid and I still live in hope of repairing my Ryobi which gave me three years of good service before the coil died.

Why would anyone buy at this price when you can get the same product direct from Epson for far less than half of this supplier's price?

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb album - but a word to the wise, 4 Feb 2012
This review is from: Odessey & Oracle (Audio CD)
Odessey & Oracle is a superb album, which I have owned since it was first released in 1968. Since its first release it has been re-issued many times, often with additional tracks, so a word to the wise here. Be careful when following Amazon's links to alternate versions, particularly mp3 albums, since they tend to contain only the original set of tracks from 1968, as follows:

1. Care Of Cell 44
2. Rose For Emily
3. Maybe After He's Gone
4. Beechwood Park
5. Brief Candles
6. Hung Up On A Dream
7. Changes
8. I Want Her She Wants Me
9. This Will Be Our Year
10. Butcher's Tale (Western Front 1914)
11. Friends Of Mine
12. Time Of The Season

However, the CD album with ASIN: B00005B0PU (Odessey & Oracle [Extra tracks, Original recording remastered, Original recording reissued]) has an additional 16 tracks not included in the mp3 album, the extra tracks being as follows:

13. I'll Call You Mine
14. She Loves The Way They Love Her
15. Imagine The Swan
16. Smokey Day
17. If It Don't Work Out
18. I Know She Will
19. Don't Cry For Me
20. Walking In The Sun
21. Conversations Off Floral Street
22. I Want You Back Again
23. Gotta Get A Hold Of Myself
24. Goin' Out Of My Head
25. She Does Everything For Me
26. Nothing's Changed
27. I Could Spend The Day
28. Girl Help Me

1.0 out of 5 stars Where is the complete track & artiste listing?, 26 Dec 2011
This is a compilation of Sixties music, supposedly - but how are we supposed to know this? There is no point in advertising compilation albums unless you provide a full listing of album tracks and the artistes to confirm whether or not they are original recordings. With so many compilation albums often extensively overlapping in content, I suspect that few people would purchase such an album simply on the strength of its title and/or a reference to the Sixties. Provision of a full track listing ought to be a compulsory requirement for advertising albums on Amazon. After all, it is not unknown for the same album title from the same artiste to be issued with different mixes of tracks.

If anyone has already bought this album, how about posting a full track title & artiste listing for everyone's benefit?
Thanks.

For those who have already purchased this CD, a complete track/artiste listing would be very handy for the rest of us - there may be just one or two original gems not available elsewhere.
