Oz Clarke Pocket Wine Book 2013
Oz Clarke Pocket Wine Book 2013
Price: 5.10

3.0 out of 5 stars Better as a book, easier to use., 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The problem with the Kindle version is that it is difficult to go to particular sections for reference. For example, If you want to look up, say, 'merlot', there are so many references in the 'Search this book' section of the menu that it takes a while to find exactly what you want, whereas in the book there are headings that are easy to follow on each page. Also, there is, of course, no colour section.
The content of Oz Clarke's book, however, is very comprehensive and informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy perfection, 24 Dec 2012

Dad's Army is so well known that there is nothing more to add. Comedy perfection.
The whole remaining recordings in one box is excellent value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish it., 9 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tedious in the extreme. It may be a whodunnit but its more of a 'who cares'. I didn't finish it which is rare for me I usually stick it to the end.


The Torment of Buddy Rich: A Biography
The Torment of Buddy Rich: A Biography

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 9 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Too much about the author, not enough about Buddy Rich. The interview with Buddy's father is interesting and original. All the rest has been elsewhere.


Buddy Rich And The Buddy Rich Big Band: Live At The Montreal Jazz Festival Dvd
Buddy Rich And The Buddy Rich Big Band: Live At The Montreal Jazz Festival Dvd
Dvd ~ Buddy Rich
Offered by uniqueplace-uk
Price: 9.47

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Band at its Best, 9 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Rich band at its best. Buddy himself solos magnificently and drives the band remorselessly. A brush solo is unusual but a treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting big sound, 9 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Adventures in Time (Audio CD)
Although many critics didn't like this, it is my favourite Kenton album after 'Cuban Fire'. Also composed by Johnny Richards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and Moving. Milligan gold dust., 16 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This concentrates some of the best of Spike Milligan's writing into a single book. It is both very funny and at times deeply moving. It is edited with a unique take on Milligan's work and I was very sorry to get to the end. I now want to re-read all Spike Milligan's work. If you are a Milligan fan this is gold dust.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tedious on Kindle., 16 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very tedious read on Kindle as there so many footnotes (Most are not funny and add little to the sense) that you will be faffing about with the 4 way controller all the time. The book itself is not that funny and if you have seen the TV 'Alan Partridge' programmes it covers the same ground but is much less entertaining.
The main humour of Alan Partridge is the superbly embarrassing performance by Steve Coogan, which the book does not recreate. It seems that I am in the minority but that's how I see it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Diappointing, 11 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This is an Orchestra! (Audio CD)
This set is designed to accompany the excellent book of the same title. The CDs are a great disappointment. The content is poor and the sound quality varies from bad (admittedly on radio transcripts) to OK.
If you are looking for something representative of Stan kenton's work look elsewhere. The price is also disproportionate to the quality. Buy the book, avoid the CDs.

Rumpole of the Bailey The Complete Collection [DVD]
Rumpole of the Bailey The Complete Collection [DVD]
Dvd ~ Leo McKern
Offered by MusicnMedia
Price: 16.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 11 Feb 2011

This is the whole Of TV Rumpole excepting the BBC pilot episode. Every one of the 42 episodes and the full length feature episode is a delight. Superbly written and acted. At this price the set is a steal.
