5.0 out of 5 stars Good selection, 11 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Includes a lot more 80s favourites than many other compilations, which often contain a lot of filler tracks that nobody cares about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good selection of 80s music, 11 Nov. 2013
This collection includes many of my favourite songs from the 80s, as well as lots that I had never heard before.

I particularly like the fact that you get a CD for each individual year of the decade, rather than just a general mish-mash.

And most of these songs are top hits, rather than five or six big songs and a load of filler, as is the case with many compilations.

For 200 songs, it's very good value.

Full track listing is available on the website [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab pop music, 11 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great selection of the Pointer Sisters' hits. I bought this CD as another reviewer said that it is the one that has the longer versions of the hits, and it is fine – not that they go on interminably either.

Also worth buying for 'If You Wanna Get Back Your Lady', which I had never heard before but totally love!

Offered by magicdiscounts
Price: £26.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good headphones, 11 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had these headphones for a year now, and I've been very happy with them.

I find they give a good sound, including bass, across all types of music, from classical to Def Leppard!

They are also very comfortable, and I have had no problems in using them continuously for two or three hours.

Very good for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the different songs, 11 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good sound quality. Bought it for the songs that didn't appear on A Delicate Sound of Thunder, especially One Slip.

Nicely packaged too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy for One of These Days live, 11 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this CD for the live version of One of These Days, which if I remember rightly was included on the Pulse LP and cassette but not the CD.

Very happy with it.


Remington R91 Dual Track Rotary Shaver
Remington R91 Dual Track Rotary Shaver
Offered by PINK AND BLUE GIFTS
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, affordable shaver, 11 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was going to replace my old Philips shaver with a similar model but was put off by the price. Then I saw this shaver, with generally positive reviews on Amazon.

I've had it for some time now and have been very pleased with it. It shaves as well as the Philips, without any irritation, and it is good for shaving long stubble if you only shave once a week or so as I do.

It's a bit more hassle to clean as you have to dismantle the head arrangement to properly clean them, but this is easy and doesn't take long.

Another downside is the fact that you can't use the shaver while it's charging, but if you always ensure that you have a fair bit of charge left then this is not a problem.

Summary – why on earth pay more?!


Dvorak - Symphony No.9 New World; Smetana
Dvorak - Symphony No.9 New World; Smetana
Price: £13.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, 11 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm very glad this has been released on CD. I originally had the Vltava recording on vinyl and it was the first version I heard of it. I then bought another recording to have it on CD, but it just didn't sound the same.

I also like one of the movements from the New World Symphony which I hadn't heard before – very rousing.

The sound is very good even though it was recorded in the early 1960s.

Highly recommended.


Van Gogh 2012 (Tear Offs)
Van Gogh 2012 (Tear Offs)
by Dr Angelika Taschen
Edition: Calendar
Price: £10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice reproductions of Van Gogh's pictures, 11 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even though this is out of date now, it's still worth buying to look at the hundreds of fine reproductions of Van Gogh's pictures, from throughout his painting career. One pic per day, except one for Saturday and Sunday jointly.

Hence there are a lot of his earlier paintings, which are generally less extensively reproduced in books.

This is a desk calendar, not a wall calendar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good guide for the casual stargazer, 11 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't had chance to look at the 2014 book in depth yet, but having bought the book over the past few years, it always contains useful details of the events and sights that are coming up each month, as well as interesting insights into the constellations and the stars, galaxies, etc that they contain.

It also has viewing tips and an impressive 'photo of the month'.
