4.0 out of 5 stars Qulaity potection for your device, 30 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Smart looking and offers good protection Sturdy zip. I use it for my iPAD and it is a good fit without its leather cover. With its leather cover it is not big enough. For that reason, I would have liked it to be just a little bigger. However, this is giid qulaity product that will do a good job at a good price. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb compilation, 29 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Collection (Audio CD)
3 CDs containing the very best of Frankie Laine's original recordings. The first CD is mainly 'western' songs and very good they are too. The other CDs contain such hits as Jezabel, Granada, Rose Rose I love you etc etc. High quality sound. Great material. I can't think you can get a better collection for this iconic artist. A superb compilation. Hilly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joe Ely at his very best, 21 Jun 2014
This review is from: Live at Liberty Lunch (Audio CD)
I don't usually like Live Albums but this is brilliant. It is full of excitement and energy which transports you to the show. Great songs, great backing and great singing. I am a fan of Joe Ely and this hard rocking country Texas style concert is without doubt one of his best. If you are going to start listening to Joe Ely! Start with this album and you will buy more. A brilliant live album. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very easy to understand for the theory beginner......, 21 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have had a guitar tutor who has taught me to plays the chrods and some riffs but if one really wants to take it further the theory is it seems to me fairly important. I am a beginner or a dummy when it comes to theory and the class room is not for me! This book is designed for such as me. It is simple and easy to follow. The online content adds video content which further enhances understanding....you can see what is said....and that has helped me. It is just what i needed. Good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars used it for years and well pleased, 21 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I used to use Norton many years ago and changed to McAfee because it was installed on my new computer and I have used it ever since which is 5 or 6 years now. I find it easy to install and you dont need to use the CD, the item comes with a code so you can just download it which in my view is much better. I have had no problms with McAfee and so far my computer has remained virus free so it does what it says. You can see what it does in the description and it does what it says. Based on years of use I have no hesitation in recommending it. One warning though.......rather than let it automatically renew at the end of the years subscription ........shop around first......even on their own website or on Amazon etc. It is often so much much cheaper to renew this way. To make sure I do this I disable the automatic renewal feature .....you get plenty of reminders. This is excellent and easy to use protection for your computer.

5.0 out of 5 stars His last recordings .....with many of the greats dueting, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stars Over Texas (Audio CD)
I dont think these are Tubb's finest recordings. His voice was not as strong as it once was (but it still deep and strong) and these are not the best versions of these classic songs. However, it is really interesting. It is a good listen for anyone who loves the classic country sounds of yesterday with some great old country songs. he is joined by the like sof Loretta Lyynn, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard etc. You can hear how much Tubb is enjoying himself. You can hear the respect the other artists have for Tubb. I believe that this was originally on 2 LPs released back in the 70s so this is a great collection of songs of over 20 of the classic Tubbs songs including Thanks a Lot, Waltz across Texas, Walking the Floor over you etc. Highly recommended to those country fans who love th classic sounds of the 50s and 60s from one of the greats of country music. It is a long way from Country music of today! Well worth a listen.


Maggie: Her Fatal Legacy
Maggie: Her Fatal Legacy
by John Sergeant
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.78

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating. Interesting. Dramatic. A superb read., 25 May 2014
I have not always agreed with the author and i do not agree with some of his conclusions in this book but he makes his points well. The book is insightful, intelligent and interesting with contributions from many of the leading politicians of the Thatcher era and after. The author has an enthusiasm and knowledge of his subject that makes this book a bit of a page turner. How often can that be said about a book of this type?! Did the way Thatcher was dealt with destroy the Tory party as he says? Did it cause a greater distrust between the public and politicans? Did Major make a fatal career mistake in not changing course when denmark rejected Maastricht? It was a time when many politicians had experience of life so different from today. This is a thoroughly entertaining and interesting read for anyone interested in Poltics and the intrigue that goes with it. Whether you love or hate Thatcher, she had an impact. Thoroughly recommended whether you loved or hated the Iron Lady. A very good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still waiting for a definitive potrait of the Boss......this is not it! Its ok but not great!, 25 May 2014
I am a Springsteen fan. I have read the various books by Dave Marsh which is entertaining but perhaps lack any real critical edge. This book certainly has a critical edge but it fails for me because it does not reveal much, if anyhting new about Springsteen himself or his life. Indeed, i don't think it is very revealing at all. For me if you read a biography, you should feel you know the subject better than you did at the start of the book. I didn't after reading this book. It is more a catalogue of the songs Springsteen performed when or recorded when or didn't as often the case. I have heard Heflin called the greatest Rock biographer....for me, he does not live up to it in this book. It is a fair read, sometimes a little turgid, tedious and sometimes it takes too long to get where it is going or just does not arrive. It's ok but I am still waiting for the definitive biography of the Boss. This is not it. However, it does provide some interesting material regarding the songs Springsteen wrote/recorded/performed or didn't. Overall if a keen Springsteen fan, it is worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good set ...plenty to do.....and washable paint, 25 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My children (between 6 and 9) have spent hours whilst being rained in doing the various art projects within this set. Fans of the Horrible Histories will enjoy and from that point of view it has a certain educational value. It certainly provides the need for some creativity. Would have liked some pictures to colour (you got a plain art pad which quickly got used) in and a thinner paint brush. The stencils are great and I suppose to make your own pictures to paint and maybe that is the idea. Its all washable....a bonus with chidreln! Not cheap but pretty good overall. The children love it.
