4.0 out of 5 stars John Fogerty - say no more, 21 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased this as, apart from some compilation content, I didn't pocess any CCR.
Not one bad track - on top of their own hits, others like 'Heard it through grape vine' ans 'Suzy Q' are well, well worth a listen, not once but many times.

You will not be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Are the eighties getting on for being 30 years ago???, 21 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 80s Triple Set (Audio CD)
My like of music strays over many genre, soul, heavy rock, jazz, pop etc. The eighties were a time of electronic development started off by Kraftwerk.
OK there are an awful lot of tracks here, some are going to be duds and to me there are some dud ones (my choice ).
But above that, i'm happy with what I got, I listen to the music on MP3 in the gym, not complaints what so ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Purchased for Mother, 21 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to enable my mum (she's 87) to listen to the radio will she sat in the main lounge of the Nursing Home she resided in.
Wanted something light, small, easy to use (for an 87 year old) sensibly located buttons (she was 80% blind) with good enough sound.
This doesn't fail on any account. Battery life has been reasonable. build has with stood alot of dropping/ banging etc.
OK, not DAB, but I can't fault it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the purchase, 21 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bridge of Sighs (Audio CD)
Bought this after watching Old grey Whistle test repeats - thought, I recognise that guiter rift (the Bridge of Sighs) - late 1970's - one of the BBC programmes (sight and sounf in concert or similar) - I was at school with radio/tape recorder at the ready and subsequently recorded the programme. At the time thought it was outstanding music - but got lost in the mist of times - the cassette could be in my attic.
I cannot fault the CD content , every tune worth listening to, James Dewars strong blusey vocals more than complements Robin's guitar playing, creating first class listening.
Purchase and enjoy - trust me, you will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars bought as replacement, 21 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as replacement for similar Lumo type. That was a good plug until it got damaged in transit -the body cracked such that when you thought that the MP3 was being re-charged, it infact wasn't.
The body of this plug seems a bit more solid and so far has not given any problem what so ever.

3.0 out of 5 stars Happy enough, 21 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as replacement for analogue Braun product which I had for best part of 20 years.
The clock arrived within a couple of days of ordering, well protected by packaging.
First thing that struck me, the lid of the clock is not as strong as I would like, a bit too flimsy but that said, in the closed state it seems solid enough.
Setting time and alarm is a doddle, the read out clear, back light a bit faint but could make out the time in the dark. The alarm is the standard triple bleep that gets louder the longer you leave it. Switch off is ok to find among the other controls but nothing like the Braun which only had 2 buttons to find, on and off !
First main test will be this weekend when I go abroad - will the body withstand the thumping and banging of travelling, and how long does the battery last?
Will update report later

4.0 out of 5 stars Great radio BUT......, 29 Aug. 2011
HAve had this radio for best part of 2 months, setting up is easy, the pre-set stations simple to establish, the sound is very good (especially Radio 2), scrolling text on screen, bass,treble controls available, FM stations and ability to attach AUX (MP3) to the system.
The design is modern with a hint of 60s / 70s retro, the build quality is good, it feels solid.
Unfortunately, after switching it on one day, I noticed the screen was blank. Read the manual - nothing, pressed buttons etc, nothing.
Thankfully went online - Amazon - and read the reviews. Loe and behold, a couple of reviewers having experienced the same problem, SWITCH ON AND OFF AT THE MAINS !!!!. Hey presto it works.....until the next time . What's wrong with technology these days?????

4.0 out of 5 stars driving music, 22 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
As with other reviewers, this is a CD for the car..... and also for MP3 - stick Easy or I see you baby on, and hit repeat you'll be through that gym session in no time, having that dance energy you thought had escaped you many years before !!
When in the car, volume at 11 (note need to be on your own for this AND not at the traffic lights getting those gleering looks from other drivers as if to say ' wise up pal'. For the quiter monments, 'At the River ' would do it.

This CD is a must, look at the price as well, --buy it now.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2010) [DVD]
Dvd ~ Noomi Rapace
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Certainly entertaining, 8 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought DVD as part of the trilogy of books / films, and hadn't read the the book.(This being the Swedish film version)
Found the film entertaining to say the least, my wife who has read the books enjoyed the film even though her perception initially conflicted with the film action.
Full concentration is required while watching, alot of dialog - made easier by playing DVD with dubbed soundtrack and not the subtitles.
The American version (at something like 10 times the budget)has to go some to beat this. Purchase and watch.
