3.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for a lifestyle course...not so sure about the wider audience at present..., 2 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have read through this since it arrived yesterday and can see what other reviewers are referring to. My assessment is that this is clearly a book that will be part of a pre designed course. In fact I have been involved with the delivery of such "lifestyle" courses. Yes it is a useful book that section by section you can refer to and take away some key points.

The book covers many aspects of being a gentleman and whilst some may seem old fashioned to some readers I think this is due to a lack of knowledge on their part and a failure by society to teach anything that equates to respect for oneself and others. This book may go a small way toward redressing the balance. There is nothing wrong with having standards and that is a big part of being a gentleman.

I did not like some of the terminology used in the book and the references to "metrosexual" are pigeonholing when clearly individuals are just that. Also a man what ever his sexuality can be a gentleman. The book could have done away with fancy terms and simply got down to basics.

I think this book would be well received by those aspiring to be a gentleman but would be treated with derision by the vast majority and I base that on the simple fact that I see few gentleman in my day to day life and the subject fails to be taught or supported by modern day society.

Continued good luck with the training courses and magazine.

The Perfect Meal: The Multisensory Science of Food and Dining
The Perfect Meal: The Multisensory Science of Food and Dining
by Charles Spence
Edition: Paperback
Price: £22.45

3.0 out of 5 stars A very specific niche publication..., 1 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As many of the other reviewers have said this is of best use to those studying food science or restaurant management and food preparation & presentation. The format is very scholarly and almost looks like a piece of university course work in the way it is notated and the language used is certainly not for the occasional restaurant customer more the top end chef aiming at AA rosette or higher. The lack of high quality illustrations in favour of black and white images and only a block of colour images again makes me think this is for a very specific culinary audience. I can actually think of several people locally who would find this fascinating.

A very enjoyable early 1950s British film with imported male lead. Very good sound which I am very pleased about and consistent picture quality. Plenty of location filming. Thank you Simply Media.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible sound quality, 1 Nov 2014
This review is from: No Trace [DVD] (DVD)
This film is ruined by the worst sound quality I have ever heard. This film should never have been released on DVD by Simpy Media and it is unwatchable. Return for a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historic jazz performances..., 30 Oct 2014
From his early years in Chicago, to his famous ‘Ragtime Band’ of 1939 and a living legend in the 1950s and ‘60s, Spanier helped revive and sustain classic New Orleans style jazz.

This new compilation of 46 tracks over 2CDs covers the period 1924 to 1957 and is a shining example of the performer and demonstrates how the recordings have stood the test of time.

Great restoration, informative liner notes and attractive packaging add up to make this an essential addition to your collection.

Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Harmonicat memories..., 30 Oct 2014
Jerry Murad's Harmonicats were an American harmonica-based group. Originally they were named The Harmonica Madcaps and the group consisted of Jerry Murad (chromatic lead harmonica), Bob Hadamik (bass harmonica), Pete Pedersen (chromatic harmonica), and Al Fiore, (chord harmonica). They reformed later as a trio with Murad, Fiore, and bass harmonica player Don Les.

Jerry Murad (lead chromatic), was born actually born in Turkey and moved to America at the age of 13. He played diatonic harmonicas at first, and took up chromatic soon after. Originally, Murad player Hohner 270s and 64s, as well as the musscette, a harmonica that a friend made especially for him and he played on their 1960s recording of "Perisianne Fantasy". Murad also played the Hohner Polyphonia (a type of orchestral melodic harmonica), and others too.

Their 1947 recording of "Peg O' My Heart" (Mercury Records - originally Vitacoustic Records catalog number 1) quickly brought them to public attention and had sold over one million copies by 1950, reaching number one on the famous U.S. Billboard chart. their other charted hits included "Hair of Gold, Eyes of Blue," of which their version reached number 22 and "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White".

Tracks on this excellent Retrospective CD come from some of the following albums...and singles released 1947 to 1960...all the usual excellent sound restoration applies along with informative liner notes and attractive packaging...

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy small wrench..., 29 Oct 2014
This is a small adjustable wrench and very useful for those small jobs around the house, garage and on the bike or car. The bonus is the smaller size as it fits into smaller spaces. The quality is fine. The price is very reasonable.
