Tiara Tahiti [DVD]
Tiara Tahiti [DVD]
Dvd ~ Ted Kotcheff
Price: £5.50

3.0 out of 5 stars MIlls Versus Mason, 8 Jun. 2015

This review is from: Tiara Tahiti [DVD] (DVD)
A bit dated now, but better than the Carry On films which followed, it is always good to see two very good British actors, James Mason and John Mills, take on comic roles, one as a cad and the other as an officer martinet, which goes from War time Europe to paradise in Tahiti.

This review is from: All Hands On Deck (Audio CD)
Irresistible. This is light uncomplicated jazz, superbly played on clarinet and violin which blend together in perfect harmony and provide a fitting support for some cool vocals. Think Billie Holiday and Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli. A disc which cannot fail to cheer you up.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Love Paris, 29 Jan. 2015

An enjoyable romp through the traditional sound of accordion music and song which one used to hear in French cafes but now can only be found in the sound tracks of old French movies. Very evocative and a very good selection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lives Up To, 29 Jan. 2015

This of course is one of the great classic English novels from the 19th century. It is Dickens at his best - interesting characters, varied locations and a fast paced narrative. But the great joy of reading this book again was the narration which came with the Kindle version. I love the way you can switch between your Kindle in the daytime and the audio version at night, or in the car.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Revelation, 26 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An extraordinary tour de force by the incredible director of the British Museum. Completely opened my eyes to German history and culture in which so many different and diverse cities and states came together by a common love of the German language and the German sausage! My only question about the book and the exhibition is : why no mention of German music as a common bond?

This review is from: The Hot Sardines (Audio CD)
It must be such fun playing in this band. Everyone seems to be having a good time and this communicates itself to the listener. The vocals by "Miz Elizabeth" are clear and sharp. I love the fusion of sounds and songs coming from three get jazz cities - Chicago, Paris, and Berlin.

This book really does stand the test of time. It is the ideal companion for anyone about to go, or having been o, a garden tour in Italy. My edition is now quite a old and I am very tempted to get the new one.

This review is from: This Boy (Kindle Edition)
I heard about this book on the grapevine otherwise, billed as a memoir by a politician, I might never have bought it. But the book - and the audio version which I purchased at the same time, is every bit as good as friends said it was. Touching, honest, unsentimental and written in good plain English. I am hooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars A torch Singer to Cry For, 12 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My goodness, this lady can sing. The choice of music from the Great American songbook is excellent. The voice is soft, warm and beguiling. I am not sure I don't prefer her way of singing these great songs to the great Ella Fitzgerald's versions. Cry me a river is the track to remember.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Long Story, 12 Sept. 2014

This review is from: The Goldfinch (Kindle Edition)
This is a long book and I have not finished yet. But so far so good. The story goes with a flow and the writing is excellent. This novel has been recommended to me by several friends whose reading habits I trust. My only reservation about such a novel is the length.
