The Wines of Roussillon
The Wines of Roussillon
by Jonathan Healey
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 9.52

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what was needed, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK so I bought a second hand book and possibly should have asked, but as this was written in 2002 it is really of little use now unless one is interested in wine history.
In addition the book lacks any maps or any groupings of wines in terms of price/style/quality and so as such, even when new, would not have helped us too much on our visit to the area.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatly Impressed, 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm from the UK and had never heard of Tab Benoit until a mate from Louisiana recommended him....this album is just great blues/bluesy rock with a touch of roll thrown in...well crafted, well recorded but what makes it stand out is the feel....this guy clearly understands and loves this music and his band are with him all the way. Only trouble is I now have to buy the back catalogue!

2.0 out of 5 stars OK but this is NOT the film with james garner, 23 Dec 2012
This review is from: Victor/Victoria [DVD] (DVD)
Hi there, although a proper production you need to be aware that this is not the all star hollywood version, but it does have Julie Andrews

5.0 out of 5 stars Seminal, 4 Jun 2009
This review is from: Overkill (Audio CD)
Alan Burridge's review here says it all.

From a personal perspective I bought this when it came out, and it hit me right between the eyes, 30 odd years later, dozens of Motorhead concerts and 20 plus albums later it still does.

5.0 out of 5 stars On your feet you feel the beat, it goes straight to your spine,, 4 Jun 2009
Simply the most bombastic album ever.
I wasn't at Hammersmith but I was at a lot of the other gigs on the tour and this captures the dirt, power and passion perfectly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous, 28 May 2009
This review is from: His Special Years (Audio CD)
Known by the blue rinse brigade as "Val the Impaler", he tore a swathe of decadence through middle England through the 60s and 70s and is reputed to own a sweater knitted by every woman he ravished.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a let-down., 19 May 2009
It started off fine, page 1 was perfectly readable but I feel that Mr Pukka Jubilicate (or is that Miss?) needs to work harder on characterisation and plot in any future endeavour.

Le Creuset Stoneware Classic Grand Tea Pot, Granite
Le Creuset Stoneware Classic Grand Tea Pot, Granite

5.0 out of 5 stars It makes tea., 19 May 2009
It's not made of stone, in fact if it was I'd have deducted a point as it would be unfeasibly heavy.
However it is a perfectly good tea pot.
I am no ceramics expert, but I think that this is really made from clay and water.
Le creuset are not the only company to fall into this confusion over "stone", I purchased a pair of wrangler "stone" washed jeans, when I recieved them they were completely clean with no trace of dust or rubble; I wrote to wrangler pointing out that they had confused "stone" with "water".
as for the band "stone roses" don't get me started....
