5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and accurate guide, 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have only followed the Westbourne so far,and what this guide does is lead you through unfamiliar parts of London,that you would not normally see,and the connected buildings,especially churches along the route.Can,t wait to start another one.Even met Roger Bannister in Paddington Rec.great book even if you only read it at as a history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique classic., 13 Jan 2014
This review is from: Roxy Music (Audio CD)
When early 70,s rock is revisited ,this is the daddy of them all.The perfect album,nothing less than a watershed of its time.How could they achieve such a masterpiece?.After this there was only one way to go.But they stayed up for several more years.Get it if you missed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bible, 24 Jan 2013
This is the only book you need,you could throw the rest away.Amazingly written in the fifties,before modern self help books were invented,and the counter culture was going to the green grocer.

5.0 out of 5 stars alternative narrowboat comedy, 2 Jun 2010
When you get to 70,do something different.Why not write the funniest boating adventure,and have that adventure with a long suffering wife and whippet,he did it with panache and a dodgy eye.Great book if you get his humour,i did,some don,t and miss it.

1.0 out of 5 stars YOUNG GENIOUS,WITH THE WORLD AT HIS FEET, 10 Nov 2009
Well,what can be said of this period of dylans rise to greatness,this cd spells it out.So fresh and eager,knowing he was blested with a very special gift that the rest of us mere mortals craved for.This live performance shows it all,would have been even better without his lover on stage,but you can,t have everything.He was maybe a bit stoned,with many private jokes,as stoned people are,but with him it still is magical, mercurial and just unique..

4.0 out of 5 stars GREEN AND GREAT, 5 Feb 2009
Hi,i bought my solar radio to use on my boat,it works fine,doesn,t last for 27 hours on a full charge.This may be on a very low volume,but that would be stretching it,also it would be very usefull to be able to charge from a cigar lighter socket,but Roberts say they don,t do a connector.Why not?,so here,s hoping for a good summer, other than that it,s great,
