5.0 out of 5 stars Magical addictive music, 21 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gold (Audio CD)
Superb - such a diverse range of songs and musical styles. Can't stop listening to it!
Listening on headphones reveals Robert Palmer's creativity and playfulness with rhythms and sounds as well as his mellifluous voice.
Such a loss to music at too young an age.


How to Play Guitar: A New Book for Everyone Interested in the Guitar
How to Play Guitar: A New Book for Everyone Interested in the Guitar
by Roger Evans
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and reassuring advice, 19 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Working my way through this as my New Year's Resolution to myself, to learn to play a new musical instrument.

The author is encouraging and straight-forward, with enough detail provided to give the reader every chance of mastering the skills, and an astute programme that keeps one pushing on with regular playing to begin to improve gradually. Little and often is the key to this approach.

I can already read musical notation but someone completely new to it should be able to understand what's required, if they persist in the manner encouraged by the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Got tiny toes?, 19 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PUMA Vikky LS Sneakers (Shoes)
Much too little depth in the toe box for my comfort.
Only someone blessed with tiny toes could find these wearable, and as for playing basketball in them, the thought has made my toes curl.


No Ordinary Man: The Life and Times of Miguel de Cervantes
No Ordinary Man: The Life and Times of Miguel de Cervantes
by Donald McCrory
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Wrong author mixed up with the book title, 19 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The wrong author has been mixed up with this book title entry!

If you order it, you'll be receiving a novel related to Estonia and Estonian poetry by Peter Vansittart instead of a book about Miguel Cervantes. It may well be an admirable novel but Cervantes it ain't!

1.0 out of 5 stars DVD had Posh Badly-Dubbed out-of-synch dialogue, 19 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There may be a mix-up at the packaging factory but the DVD in this pack is not what I hoped for. No Original Glaswegian patter, only the Posh Badly-Dubbed dialogue that's not even in synch with the actors' mouths and apt to omit speech entirely, so unwatchable as a result.

3.0 out of 5 stars heavier silk liners do not warmer hands make!, 27 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought buying a heavier weight of knitted silk gloves to use as liners in my gloves would be a sure bet for keeping my fingers warm. Sadly I can't say that these have proved effective yet in even moderately cold weather.

I have also to note that the silk gets pulled easily on velcro, which so many outer gloves and jackets now use, which quickly makes the silk glove liners tatty; this isn't the fault of the silk, of course, but just a note for anyone who is fastidious about the appearance of their clothing accessories.

Optimum Men's Nitebrite WaterProof Winter Cycling Gloves - Green, Small
Price: £4.88

2.0 out of 5 stars Sadly not good in even moderately cold weather, 27 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not very good at keeping my fingers warm, even with silk glove liners used inside, in moderately cold weather.

I've yet to see how they cope with heavy rain but they aren't a sure bet against the cold, sadly, so I'll have to keep looking for gloves that do keep my fingers warm And keep out the rain.

5.0 out of 5 stars More perfume companies should offer sample selections like this, 24 Oct. 2015

When it isn't easy to get hold of samples of scent, this box offers an elegant solution: lots of different fragrances to test in generous sample vials.

Great to get to try a variety of fragrances without paying a fortune, especially as I got a Warehouse Deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice extra for fans of The Boss if you can get it inexpensively, 24 Oct. 2015

An interesting read with plenty of photos - a hefty tome too.
