MANCHESTER 9
MANCHESTER 9
Price: 2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Bill Keeth's Manchester 9, 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MANCHESTER 9 (Kindle Edition)
Manchester 9 is a book of anecdotes from Bill's earlier books and as such serves as a very good sampler for those that have not read any of his books. I am sure that upon reading this taster edition, readers will flock to buy his other titles:- Every Street in Manchester, Manchester Kiss and Four Years to Life. Mr Keeth's books are generally Manchester centric but his humour trancends city boundaries and are guaranteed to have any reader with a sense of humour doubled up with laughter. This volume will no doubt increase the inimitable Bill Keeth's readership

5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Maestro & the Crests, 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Johnny Maestro had, arguably, the best voice of the Doo-Wop era. Sadly he his no longer with us and so only his back catalogue with the Crests and with Brooklyn Bridge are available. As there will be no further recordings of Mr Maestro, this compilation is a must for all fans of Doo-Wop and rock 'n' Roll.
The first part is made up of cover versions of the day:-The Penguins Earth Angel; Little Richards Good Golly Miss Molly; Bobby Helms My Special Angel; Charlie Gracie's Butterfly and more.
The second half of the cd is made up of the Best of The Crests. Well worth The Price

I bought this by accident on Kindle. Gave it a try but not really my type of book. More for the ladies

Very good biography but upon reading the life story of Cole Younger I believe that W.B. Lawson may have a few of his facts wrong. All in all a good read about the ols West


The Story of Cole Younger, by Himself
The Story of Cole Younger, by Himself
Price: 0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Cole Younger, 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cole Younger has been cast as a distant cousin to the James boys which he denies. The james boys, Jesse and Frank have also been credited with being the architects and leaders of the Great North Minnesota Bank Raid. According to Cole Younger they were not involved in this daring exploit. It was the Younger brothers, Cole JIm and Bob pus Clell Miller and others who attempted to pull off this daring raid. They were, of course, shot to pieces, Cole taking a number of bullets. A very good read and if you cannot believe the author who recounts his exploits, then who can you believe

4.0 out of 5 stars Otis Redding, 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perhaps the finest voice in soul music. All the greatest hits are here. I bought this CD to replace the Otis' LP's that I had on vinyl.
Not every song from Otis Blue or Dictionary of Soul, or My Girl are here, but it is a good cross section and for the price you cannot go wrong

The Authentic Life of Billy The Kid
The Authentic Life of Billy The Kid

4.0 out of 5 stars Bily the Kid, 2 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A different view from the other biographies That I have read concerning 'The Kid.' Pat Garret, as the man who tracked him down and killed him, it seems, should be the definitive version. Their is no mention of Governor Lew Wallace with whom the Kid kept up a correspondence about his amnesty and not much about Garretts Assumed friendship with the Kid. Despite all this it is not a bad read and gives another and different insight into the young murderer and thief's short life.

CE MAINS HOME CHARGER FOR AMAZON KINDLE Wi-Fi 6" E INK DISPLAY

4.0 out of 5 stars Mains home charger, 13 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good buy for the price. Charges my kindle in a very short time, much better than the USB supplied by Kindle. Very pleased but shouldn't chargers be part of the overall purchase when buying electonic equipment that occasionally needs topping up or is this just another way that the average customer is paying through the nose
