5.0 out of 5 stars A practical sun hat., 16 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent practical sun hat, rather than a fashion statement. The wide brim gives 360 degree shade. The fit can be adjusted with the internal tie and the removable chin strap will keep it in place in a gale. The brim can be turned up to change to a more racy look and the whole thing can be rolled up or folded for stowing away. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This EMI recording of this performance comes complete with a libretto booklet., 5 Mar. 2016
This review is from: La Traviata (Audio CD)
Review borrowed from 'Viva Verdi's' review of the Classics for Pleasure version of this recording.

I came to this recording late, wrongly assuming it could not match Callas, Cotrubas or Caballe. Victoria de los Angeles is the sweetest Violetta on record. Her voice is clean and pure, and particularly haunting in the slow, but beautiful, rendition of "Dite alla giovine" duet. She has a voice, in different way to Callas, that could press your emotion buttons with ease.

When I heard the tenor Carlo del Monte I thought, at first, that he was a comprimario bumped up to a lead role - he has a thin, slightly trapped voice, but I warmed to him (He was a famed Zarzuela singer). He has confidence and expression, and he certainly sings a good vocal line.

Mario Sereni did not possess the strongest baritone voice - he was no Scarpia - but he is a fine Germont. His voice is warm and his slightly thin timbre is no hindrence here.

I've always had a soft spot for the Rome Opera Orchestra and Serafin does a predictable safe and secure job conducting them. I have to add that the recording is terrific: they obviously made the decision to push the chorus back in the first act and accentuate the principals. I liked it. NB: There are the usual unnecessary cuts - "Oh mio rimorso" and "No non udrai rimproveri" - but all-in-all this is a recording I would favour over both Joan Sutherland's recordings (shock-horror) and both Renata Scotto's. It's available under a number of re-issues and at a budget price too!

Generally languid and relaxing music in the intelligent ambient mould.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for a low cost umbrella., 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Claims to be a wind-resistant umbrella with an extra strong fibre-glass rib mechanism. However, inspection reveals that most of it is of standard metal construction with only one strut in each arm being fibre-glass. Identical, in fact, to my wife's previous umbrella which failed catastrophically in a gusty breeze. Having said that, so far this one is a good size and works OK as a standard umbrella. To get real wind-resistance a non-collapsible golf umbrella costing much more is probably the only way to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat and useful., 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought mainly to retrieve files from the HDDs from a failed PC it did the job easily straight out of the box. Its now being used to house an external DD to act as backup to my main PC. It also adds the reader facility for various sizes of SD cards. All in all a neat, low cost and useful piece of kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great jazz playing, well recorded for 1943!, 14 Dec. 2015
This review is from: Jazz A-Plenty (Audio CD)
While traditional dixieland jazz is not my usual bag, the playing and recording on this CD is probably the best I've heard of this music. It allows the joy and skill of the performers to shine through. The tunes are mostly well known jazz standards but with each player being given ample room for their solos they come up like new. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate cool jazz!!, 5 Dec. 2015
This review is from: Opus De Jazz (Audio CD)
Swinging, tuneful and relaxing. My favourite 50's jazz album and the one I reach for if someone enquires as to what jazz is all about. I usually have reservations about the use of flutes in jazz but here in harmony with Milt Jackson's vibraphone it really works a treat. Give yourself a treat and buy this CD. Yes, it is short but its beautifully formed!
