5.0 out of 5 stars A winning combination, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a wonderful album of excellent music and musicianship. It's not difficult to see why Armstrong had such an influence on all kinds of popular music, as well as jazz, and WC Handy's music here provides the ideal vehicle for him. Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars A new fan?, 7 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Master Serie Vol.1 (Audio CD)
I didn't used to like Brel - for no particular reason - but with this album he has found a new fan. Very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fit, Finish, Comfort and Support, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I buy shoes 1/2 size larger than my foot size because I wear arch supports and with thickish socks these shoes are a perfect fit - they seem to be be a fairly wide fitting anyway which suits me fine. They look well fiished with no obvious stitching or welded seam defects. They are very comfortable - to test them for extended use I wore them in the house for about 12 hours on successive days without any indication of pressure points causing aches or pains. They are equally comfortable on tarmac and on rougher surfaces - I think the fairly stiff mid-sole helps on the latter. They would be a good buy at any price but at the Amazon price of £32.98 they are undoubtedly a bargain! Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat storage, 7 Dec. 2010
This is a reasonably priced and convenient storage for those odds and ends of flash memory cards and memory sticks which seem to proliferate these days! It's not huge but it is vary convenient. Recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars OK - BUT...!, 7 Dec. 2010
It looks good and fits fairly well on a variety of teapots.....but I'm not convinced that it keeps the tea any hotter than either of the other two cosies I have.

5.0 out of 5 stars '...another remarkable achievement...', 15 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Taming The Tiger (Audio CD)
If your awareness of Joni Mitchell's musical achievements doesn't extend beyond, say 'Big Yellow Taxi' or 'Both Sides Now' then you really need to come to this album via 'Blue' and 'Court and Spark' and possibly even 'Hissing of Summer Lawns' to really appreciate what is going on here. In 'Taming the Tiger' you find all the wonderful combinations of the ingredients - melodies, harmonies instrumentations and lyrics - to be found in the likes of 'Night Ride Home' and 'Turbulent Indigo' but much more subtly presented almost as a series of personal musings on what has gone before. The first time I listened to it I got the feeling that it was a kind of postscript on the final page of a musical autobiography. It certainly wasn't the last album she made, but it does feel that it may well have been intended as such! Another remarkable achievement from someone who to all intents and purposes is the perfect singer/songwriter.

5.0 out of 5 stars All-time classic!, 27 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Best Friends (Audio CD)
An outstanding collaboration between two 'BEST' artists in their particular fields and performing at their 'BEST'! I bought the vinyl LP when it was released in 1976 and it is still one of the most played albums in my collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky looks but it works!, 27 Oct. 2009
On the minus side it feels a little 'plasticky' However its somewhat quirky blue light does seem to grow on you! It is comfortable to hold and its smallish size makes it ideal for the travelling laptop (in my case Samsung N110 Netbook) Most important of all - it works!

4.0 out of 5 stars Stylish performer, 20 May 2009
This laptop has very good looks with a performance to match. The combination of processor and 3GB memory make it a very fast all-rounder with a good-sized display adding to its attributes. It does tend to accumulate dust fairly readily, but they always say that a black car is never clean!
