1.0 out of 5 stars Very limited use - doesn't do even half of what it claims., 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The text is informative but very sadly, the huge number of links to "sound clips" that are meant to provide examples of the various effects and edits in Garage Band, simply do not work - neither through the QR codes in the Kindle book, nor through the URLs to which the QR codes point. All they do is take you to the main SoundCloud site where you will search but will be unable to find any of the clips referred to. Obviously, that issue will also affect the print version.
It's a real shame, but it's not even half a book. I have emailed the author to ask about this but he has not responded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Product OK, lots of reviewers need a brain upgrade, 27 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK... First niggle is not with the product but with many of the half-wits who have reviewed it. If anyone has read the publicity or seen the videos you *have to* expect them to be tight - it's how they work! Get a refund on your brains... Second niggle is that the Amazon website uses it's own generic size chart which does *not* correspond with the Tone-Tee site (e.g. If you are a size XXXL on the Amazon site you actually need a Tone-Tee XXL). Go to the Tone-Tee site for correct sizing!... The product only does what you expect it to; if you're fat, you have lumps... they only smooth out and flatten the lumps, they will not make them disappear, idiots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Temps perdu et temps retrouve, 11 Oct. 2014

The movement, the narrative, the worlds are all breathtakingly observed. There is more but I am unable to do that "more" any justice in such a small review but only remember, sei ikuru... "to live"

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job very nicely, 5 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this item after having seriously damaged my original Kindle and replacing it with a Paperwhite. It has no bells and whistles but if you find any, you would have to ask yourself what they are doing in a Kindle protective cover! It does the job of protection very nicely. It is not bulky although it is robust... and it holds your Kindle more snugly than a snuggly thing in the snug bar of a 60s pub...

1.0 out of 5 stars Free???, 21 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Anjunabeats Sampler (MP3 Download)
How come this is described as "Free" by so many customers? If so, why is there the standard £7.49 download charge?

1.0 out of 5 stars How did anyone get this free?, 16 Oct. 2012
This review is from: NMC Sampler (MP3 Download)
There's obviously something going on here... why £7.49 if it should be free? Is there a secret password to be used or a discount code?

4.0 out of 5 stars Happenings long, long time ago, 17 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Expansions On Life (Audio CD)
As Golovanov says, they were from North wales - Wrexham in fact and they were originally well-known in the mid-late 60s on the soul circuit as a 7-piece band called the Siverstone Set... in that format they won "Opportunity Knocks" around 6 times... so Andy Scott was not the only reason they were known... Ted ("Gus") Yeadon ("Eadon") had a great soul voice and was a great drummer too until he took up keyboards with Elastic Band...

4.0 out of 5 stars Foot stompin', 23 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Now I'm a great advocate of accoustic music and this is a great example of accoustic country blues... except... for the foot stomping that dominates certain tracks (e.g. tracks 1, 7 & 10). I wouldn't get irritated by it if the stomping were actually on the beat but, particularly on tracks 1 & 10, it is just everso slightly out. And that's irritating. As I live on a main road I thought one of the locals was parked outside in a van with a particularly loud dance track on the stereo...

Other than that, it's a great album played in great style by a very dedicated bluesman...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad... but, 16 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
... but my 'phone was delivered from Germany. Not a problem at all except that to make the 'phone work you need to speak at least 1 European language other than English as the supplied manual has no English section. Now I bought this for my elderly mother who has no knowledge of mobile phones and although I have had several over the last few years I found the Doro to be less than intuitive to operate. Now you can get a user manual if you go to the Doro website and that's where you will find this phone listed under the section "Old / Discontinued Products..." The entry here does not mention anything about that because if Doro's website is correct (and why shouldn't it be?) as an old or discontinued model the price should be a lot less than they're asking. Having said that, the phone does seem to do what it's supposed to but I'm a little less than enchanted overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fugitive Pieces cannot be bettered..., 14 Feb. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fugitive Pieces (Paperback)
... in a novel. Humanity, guts and heart - that's what this book's about. Atrocity, learning and kindness - that's what stitches it all together. I've never (or very rarely) felt the need to make notes from a novel but so many are the gems of observation here that I felt compelled to. A book to be read many times but felt many more times still. Fluid as a river and as permanent as the geology from which one of it's many sources springs. That's the contradiction and tension in this novel. Read it (and resolve it) or lose out. So you've no choice really....
