5.0 out of 5 stars Top Band Top Box Set, 27 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Here Come The Nice (Audio CD)
The main issue people seem to have with this release is the price - which for a 4 CD set with 4 x 7" singles truthfully is overpriced but the reasons for & against seem to be debated well elsewhere. Me, I just like the music & a nicely packaged product so if I can find the funds & its a band I like - I pay what it costs - but I accept that its a small fortune to pay in tough times
The actual set is one of the best presented sets I have seen. The hardback book holding the CD's lifts to reveal replica posters, which lift to reveal replica marketing photos & the soft back book of lyrics & pics, which lifts to reveal the signed certificate & 4 singles, which lifts to reveal more postcard sized pictures. All housed in cut away protective foam packaging. I like the way it presents & on first entering is like a SF treasure trove. The various versions of music sound really interesting & while I can see its more suited to a big fan of the Small Faces really in truth who else would buy this? - there are multiple releases targeted at the passing traffic. No this is a bit more in depth & interesting - reminds me a bit in places of the seminal Pet Sounds Sessions box (though this has way more thought gone into it & seems to have been produced with a fan's eye view). I am not a musicologist or forensic SF fan who can tell you the difference between all the versions on this but to my eyes & ears this is a really nice thing to have & something to enjoy

Invaluable on our 3 week motorhome tour of north & South Island. The best on the market. Expensive but you won't be disappointed because it makes such a difference to your holiday

4.0 out of 5 stars Well presented box set, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The music of this speaks for itself & if you've got this far you're probably well aware of the quality on offer. All the original albums faithfully replicated plus two discs of b sides. My only gripe is that these are in a Matt finish whereas the originals were in a plasticised sheen finish but that's a minor issue. Buy it - play it, look at it, hold it, whatever you choose but an essential buy nonetheless

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than you think - well worth the money, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Often you see things like this advertised & you think it sounds good but so often you are let down. Bought this as a last throw of the dice to try to help an Achilles' tendon & heel injury. At first I thought it might go the way of the rest of the things I've tried & that I'd end up in surgery. I can honestly say that by using this a minimum once but more often twice a day for around 3 weeks there is an incredible difference to an injury that so far Physio & orthotics have failed with. I have gradually increased the power & now at 84 for 30 mins I feel I am progressing nicely. Not yet totally resolved but there is progress & I seriously believe that continued use will lead to a cure in the next couple of months. In addition my legs feel strong and don't ache like old runners legs often do. It might be expensive but to me it's well worth the cost

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good read, 16 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Frank, open, insightful and thought provoking...loved this from beginning to end. There may be some political views expressed which might not agree with every reader but the promotion of tolerance, consideration for others and love of the family shines through. Put any prejudices or ideologies to one side this is a talented and erudite man expressing thoughts on a range of issues many of which cross the political divide. Most of all the belief that the world is there for all to share and improved only through debate and discussion - not war.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Must have, 5 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Classic Album Selection (Audio CD)
Even if you already own these albums thus is a great buy. Presented well with original artwork - looks great & sounds even better. If you don't own these albums & you haven't heard them before - prepare for an audio treat - great music from one of the most underrated & undervalued bands ever. Possibly Wellers finest few hours on record

Read it all before? No you haven't! This is a really good read. Best read on a hot sandy beach with the White Album in your ears ( at least that's what I did!)

Its a cardboard box with a cardboard lid - that's all you are getting. When it was delivered I kept looking for the item & thought I'd been sent a box with packaging in it like a box - until I realsed I had

4.0 out of 5 stars We have 3 now - recommended, 13 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brief review - my wife has been buying expensive plug in air fresheners for a while and though initially expensive these will save money in the long term. These fill the room with pleasant smells and seem to clean the air around them. We now have 3 in the house - lounge kitchen and bedroom - even reduces the dog smells. Oils are widely available & the good thing is that this safely cuts out if it runs dry - really good service from seller & highly recommended product
