4.0 out of 5 stars Session guitarist of the sixties, 16 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to hear this as soon as I saw the name Vic Flick, many people do not realise how often they have heard his guitarwork (Notably on The James Bond Theme). But it was in the fifties and sixties when he did a lot of sessionwork, because he was one of the few electric guitarists who could actually read music. So I was glad to see he was starting to get some recognition. And yes I did enjoy it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Never came through, 30 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a track that just wouldn't come through. I wanted it because I used to really like Sandie Shaw. I will have to try downloading it again, as it is the only one I've had problems with. And as usual Amazon Customer Services is only available for praise and awkward if you have problems

4.0 out of 5 stars Only version I could get, 30 May 2011

This review is from: Holy Roller (MP3 Download)
I had this on a single by Dan McCafferty (The Lead Singer) who released it as a solo, but it is one of those ones that are impossible to get. Still it's him singing and it's a great track with lots of memories for me. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who only knows Nazareth by their chart output

3.0 out of 5 stars Just A Great Song, 30 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: So Sad The Song (MP3 Download)
I like Teddy Pendergrass and loved Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes, but the best version of this great song is definitely Gladys Knight. I had this one because I like getting different versions of songs I really like, just wish I could get the instrumental version that was on the B-side of the GK song. But this is still great music for a quiet night in with someone you want to be with and the voice is very sultry

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant song by an underrated group, 23 Mar 2011

This review is from: I've Got A Feeling (MP3 Download)
A great song by a long underrated group who were far more popular on the continent than in their Home Country. Would fit on any Great Romance or Great Acoustic album, but will only do that if covered by a boy band Lol

5.0 out of 5 stars US Crime Series, 24 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am the sort of person who enjoys the crime genre. British or US. But I hate the incessant breaks for adverts, which for me often ruin the stories as they always seem to come at a crucial point. SVU is like all the Law & Order series, Interesting stories with good actors playing well written characters. If you enjoy the Law & Order type of crime series, then this is reliable entertainment and what better place to start than the beginning of the series. I did and enjoyed it immensely. But be warned! Like all these series it finishes with you wanting to get the next series, so it is not a one-off thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slapstick Action, 23 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Accidental Spy [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this for my 7 year-old boy, who loves the slapstick action and is a great Jackie Chan fan, as I think all young children are. The proof of how good the film is, is that he will quite happily watch it over again and will giggle at the same bits. To me Jackie Chan is good entertainment value as you can sit and watch it as a family, there is nothing offensive and has good, happy storylines

5.0 out of 5 stars 7 Year-Old Boy, 23 Oct 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was bought for my seven year-old boy, who is just starting to get interested in video games, as he prefers his Lego. He is learning to use the games and this was ideal as the theme is his favourite toy and it is basically simple to use. He thought it was wonderful and that is all that matters to me

5.0 out of 5 stars Children's Favourites, 19 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you can stand the Americanisation of an English literary classic (Gopher's in 100 Acre Wood) then you have a pack of good family entertainment films. All the favourite characters are here, everyone has a different favourite! The stories are enjoyable and easily followed. It is perfect entertainment for the family to sit around and watch. The only sad note is. It's surprising how many people think Disney actually created the lovable bear and his friends

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Primer, 19 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought a few of these books as my son will read, but finds it boring. He loves Lego and I have always believed the priority is to teach them to enjoy reading. He liked the story, the illustrations, the idea of being able read the whole story quickly and the ideas he got from it. That is why these books are good for him and I recommend them to any parents of young Lego loving chilodren.
