5.0 out of 5 stars A truly great concert performance from a truly great artist, 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i have been a great fan over many years of early Genesis (the Peter Gabriel era) and have always had a high regard for the talent of Hackett.
I possess several albums (vinyl and CD) and a couple of music DVD's of him in concert and happily bought this.
Excellent.
The tracklisting is thus:

Please don't touch
Racing in A
Ace of wands
Narnia
A Tower struck down/Spectral mornings
Kim
Shadow of the hierophant
Clocks/The angel of mons
Carry on up the vicarage
Star of Sirius

All performed wonderfully. All his band members on form.
I'd love to have been there for this remarkable event.
I'll just have to make do with this DVD...................it's good enough!

AnySharp Global World's Best Knife Sharpener (Classic)
Price: £9.96

3.0 out of 5 stars Not brilliant...., 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Blunt, dull knife edges. Nobody likes to see such things.
So, having always used a conventional sharpening steel, I bought this device.
Expecting a miracle.
I followed the instructions exactly.
The result?
Not as good as my steel.
Maybe my knives are past their best, and I need a new set.
There you have it.

5.0 out of 5 stars What can you say other than brilliant!, 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, I guess I have to say a little more than that, so here goes.
Brad Pitt and Christof Waltz are superb in this.
Melanie Laurent, Michael Fassbender, Eli Roth and Diane Kruger also shine.
Pretty gritty in places (I mean violent) it possesses a compelling story line and holds the attention every second of the fairly lengthy running time.
The opening sequences featuring Waltz interrogating a French farmer about a jewish family he is suspected of hiding is my favourite.
If you haven't seen it, and you have an interest in the rather unique style of Tarantino, go get this. You will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't get confused as to what you are buying...., 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inglorious Bastards [DVD] (DVD)
Inglorious Basterds (2009) with Brad Pitt et all this ain't, but what it is stands up to scrutiny as an enjoyable and well paced war film.
This film, from 1978, directed by not Tarantino but Enzo Castellari, features some more obscure actors, both American and European.
A group of soldiers are on route to courtmartial when an air attack gives them their freedom.
They then find themselves tasked with some "behind the enemy lines" tasking to capture some Nazi hardware while on route to Switzerland.
It is as I say a good film and doesn't disappoint in any way.
But to reiterate, no comparison with Tarantino's film can be made.
You also get a pretty convoluted extra of a chat between Tarantino and Castellari. I got bored after 30 minutes and went to bed.


D-Day: The Battle for Normandy

5.0 out of 5 stars Beevor never fails to satisfy, 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Aside from the fact I realise my title for this review sounds a "bit risky", this book lives up to the very high standards of Stalingrad, with precise detail, good argument based on sound fact, clear maps and a smattering of photographs as well.
Beevor is truly an author of great significance and merit.
And I bought this hardcover book second hand at a really cheap price so very happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good solid chunk of steel.....fully fit for purpose, 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like well made bits of kit.
This is just that.
Good lump of steel, 2 different heads (flat and serrated) and a solid rubber handle (hence not for the dishwasher)
Used it a few times.
5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a diverse double disc DVD. Some truly great material here!, 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being the owner of several of ELP's early albums, and even the Emerson, Lake and Powell album, (but not Love Beach I hasten to add!), I found myself drawn to this superb, great value, DVD.
The 1st disc covers many slots from early ELP, solo and group material. Including:
Take a pebble (1970)
Knife edge (1971)
Rondo/Pictures at an exhibition (Isle of Wight 1970)
Lucky Man (1974)
Karn Evil 9 3rd impression (1974)
and so many others.
Even "I believe in Father Christmas" with Greg Lake (excellent vocals throughout ELP's history), and this song is no exception.
A great documentary as well.
Concert footage on disc 2 of the California Jam festival is staggering.
Even features the band at Brands Hatch and Carl Palmer performing in the Crazy World of Arthur Brown (Fire).
All said and done, 3 superb musicians at the height of their collective success.
I went on the purchase ELP live at the Royal Albert Hall...............also brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob Marley? A fan of his music? Get this!, 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
1977. I was 21 years old. Old enough to have been at the Rainbow to witness this event. Alas, all I ever did in those days was buy vinyl albums and listen to them either with my mates or under the headphones.
How I wish now I could step in to the Tardis (contemporary link here given the 50th anniversary!) and gone to this fantastic concert.
It is superb.
Starting with Trenchtown Rock, and moving through such superb songs like I shot the sheriff, War/No more trouble, No woman, no cry, and finishing with Exodus, I cannot rate this with anything less than 5 stars.
Marley and his Wailers are on 100%, no holds barred, form.
And you even get a documentary on Marley's life which ain't bad either!
Yeh....get Jamming. Go buy it!


D-day: The Lost Evidence (Above the Battle)
D-day: The Lost Evidence (Above the Battle)
by Christopher Going
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £17.94

3.0 out of 5 stars A cheap purchase so not disgruntled, 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As previous reviewers have stated, the photos are limited by just that....they are printed photos as opposed to the originals printed off a negative. If you have any designs of using a magnifying glass to see better detail, forget it. All you will see is the detail comprising the print process of the book (offset lithography I am guessing).
Yes the chapters have close-ups taken from the main picture. And the historic details of the battles/events is pretty interesting.
3 stars, no more.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good!, 24 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The vacuum cleaner we owned and that this replaces weighed a heck of a lot, was bulky, and difficult to empty. Plus the cable was not that long.
So, time for a change.
The price seemed excellent, and the YouTube videos promising.
It arrived very quickly and was well packaged.
I have used it twice now to do the whole house.
It is excellent!
Light, modern, efficient, especially at picking up all the dog hairs and cat hairs we have in the house (regrettably).
So easy to lift. A very long cable, and the extension tube is phenomenal. Should be interesting to see how long this lasts before it crimps and splits.. Does the 6 year guarantee cover that I wonder?
Easy to empty.
All good so far. Happy. Very happy................
