5.0 out of 5 stars Round the Bend, 7 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife is a Neville Shute addict and this adds to her already large collection. It is rather different from Shute's other books, but compelling reading.

This review is from: The Greengage Summer (Paperback)
We loved the film of 'Greengage Summer' with Kenneth More and Susannah York and my wife has recently read 'Kingfishers Catch Fire', so I bought the book for Christmas. It makes one want to search out other titles by this author..

This is an exceptionally warm virtuoso performance, strongly recommended. Apart from the playing the accompaniement and recording are top class.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lucia di Lammermoor. Callas/Tagliavini/Serafin, 7 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a cut version as was usual at the time, but my wife and I are great admirers of Callas whom we saw several times, also Ferruccio Tagliavini and Tullio Serafin was a great conductor of Italian opera. All members of the cast are not at the same level and the recording is a bit dated, but I am delighted to have it and it is wonderful value for money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not opera, 14 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bring Him Home (Audio CD)
This CD was listed as operatic, the photographs showed Alfie Boe in costume, possibly operatic and as he has sung with English National Opera it was reasonable to assume that some tracks would be operatic, but in fact there is not a single operatic aria on the CD and no track listing was provided. This is most misleading, but I have kept the CD because the voice is pleasant and I like Musicals, but it would be helpful to specify from which shows they were taken as I did not recognise the source of all of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sony WE475 Twin Cassette Deck, 6 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have only used the replay function so far, but the sound quality is good and the deck fits well with my existing medium price hi-fi set up. On the site it did not mention that this unit incorporated automatic reverse, which made me hesitate before ordering, but in fact it has automatic reverse and also the facility to switch automatically from A to B. This makes it possible to set it to play a two cassette set, an opera for example. This is a very useful feature as I have a lot of off the air cassettes recorded with automatic reverse.
