Ordered half a size up and they were still way too small. Good shoe and was about to re-order a bigger size but the price was 25 pounds more than than originally paid.

This review is from: Absolute (Audio CD)
Great selection of Abba tracks with excellent sound quality. Amazing that this collection only reached number 70 on the UK charts back in 1988. Who knew what was to happen with Abba Gold just a few years later!

After 3 months of use it packed up completely and there is nothing you can do - i.e. you can't change the battery etc. My previous Nike Fuelband bought from the Apple store also died although that one lasted a couple of years. They're good while they work but are obviously unreliable and other companies now sell much more advanced fitness trackers for much less money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Arista singles and rare tracks!, 14 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 80s: Dionne Warwick (Audio CD)
Interesting collection at a low price. With dozens of Dionne collections available, the main reason for buying this one would be to hear the unreleased tracks. However, all the tracks from the "No Night So Long" sessions have now been released on the highly recommended Funkytowngrooves re-issues of that album, leaving just "Never Gonna Let You Get Away" from the "Dionne" album the only track which cannot be found elsewhere. Still a very enjoyable CD at (currently) a very low price. Recommended.

Track Listings
1. No Night So Long
2. Heartbreaker
3. Deja vu
4. How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye (Duet With Luther Vandross)

3.0 out of 5 stars Bassey in great voice but........, 28 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hello Like Before (Audio CD)
This album is a real mixed bag, The opening track "This Is What You Are" is a great song and DSB gives a great vocal, but the mix is all wrong with the vocal too prominent and the Royal Philharmonic Ochestra too far back. It could have been the standout track of the album that could have had radio play and so is a missed opportunity. For me, the price of the album is well covered by "Hello Like Before" "Fever" "It Was a Very Good Year" and "I'm Still Here" They are all great performances. "Englishman in New York" and "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend" are fun tracks but probably don't warrant repeat playing. Shirley pours her heart out on "MacArthur Park" and "Wild Is The Wind", however both these tracks suffer from unsympathetic arrangements and mixing which makes them uneasy listening. Bassey's passionate performances that work to great effect on stage do not always translate well to record. There is no need to pay extra for the "deluxe" version as the bonus tracks are a re-recording of the flop single "We Got Music" (very irritating song) and "Hey Jude" (best kept for live performances). What is remarkable is the quality of Bassey's voice. With the right material, producer, arranger and mixing there should still be some great Bassey recording to come.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money, 17 Feb. 2015
The author appears to have neither the wit nor the intelligence to write anything faintly amusing. Even though this is a very slim volume, I found it extremely tedious. It beggars belief that such drivel can find a publisher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remember to remove the two protective films!, 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like some other reviewers I was initially very disappointed with the condition of the case. The clear perspex case looked scratched and in very poor condition. On closer inspection (and after reading the sticker!) I realized there are TWO protective films on both sides of the case that need to be removed before you use it. It is a tricky operation, but after it's done you will find a perfectly clear scratch free case ready to protect your phone. I've also read about people having problems removing the sticker - but the sticker is stuck to the removable film , not the actual case. I'm pleased with this purchase and would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest series of albums ever produced by a British female artist., 2 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
Possibily the greatest series of albums ever produced by a British female artist. From the 1970 career changing "Something" to the international success of "Never Never Never" in 1973 its now hard to fathom how 5 albums of this calibre could be produced in 3 years! Anyone who has wondered whether or not Bassey is for them should buy this release. It's better than the numerous compilations and will convince you what a great artist she is. Arguably the best albums she produced in her long and very successful career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the excellent SECOND disc!!!!, 2 Jan. 2015
This review is for the 2 CD Funkytowngrooves version of Finders of Lost Loves.

Most fans will be familiar with the original album. Its a real mish mash of styles with various producers trying to find Dionne a hit in 1985. "Run To Me" a duet with Barry Manilow was the only single to scrape into the UK singles chart although "Without Your Love" which was obviously heavily influenced by the "Heartbreaker" album should have been a hit. There are also two duets with Stevie Wonder taken from the "Woman in Red" soundtrack which had already made it to number 2 in the UK album charts just before this release.

The most interesting part of this release is the 2nd disc of unreleased material which is worth the purchase price alone. It starts off with "Broken Bottles" written by the Bee Gees and produced by Manilow. It's a very interesting track and leaves you wondering how it would have sounded with Barry Gibb as producer. Next comes "Dangerous" another outtake that is very mid 80's in sound - but again with a few adjustments had hit potential. The title track on the original version sounds rather pedestrian - but here with the great Luther Vandross duetting with Dionne the track takes on a new life. It really is outstanding and puts "How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye" in the shade. It leaves you wondering why this has not been released before? There is also a "Dionne Solo Version" with Luther on backing vocals! The alternate version of the excellent "No One In The World" is better than the original release and the same could be said about "Bedroom Eyes". The 7" inch single (remember them?) versions of Without Your Love, Run To Me and It's Love are also great and perfect for creating your own playlists.

This album (originally released in the UK as "Without Your Love"only made 86 in the UK Album Charts) has never been a favourite of mine, but CD2 of this version is up there with Dionne's most enjoyable albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dionne's velvety smooth voice sounds great on these classic songs, 21 Dec. 2014
his 2004 recording features a selection of traditional and contemporary holiday classics.Dionne's velvety smooth voice sounds great on these classic songs. Includes a great duet with Gladys Knight "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" and "I Believe in Christmas," a new song which features BeBe Winans. This is a charming and warm affair from start to finish with first class production. Perfect for a winter evening....pass the eggnog!!!
