Samsung WEP210 Bluetooth Headset by Samsung
6 of 6 people found the following review helpful
Having previously used the WEP-200, I was really looking forward to a new bluetooth earpiece. The ease of use, the dedicated carry/charge case, the clear sound and bomb proof!

I really would not recommend this headset.

I first heard this album in a car on the way back from playing a gig in Manchester and was totally blown away by it.

Being a fan of guitarists such as Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy), Joe Satriani and Donal Rhoeser (Blue Oyster Cult), this album fitted very nicely into my collection.
'Rocket Fuel' has a much more rock defined sound than the earlier offerings by Ten Years After - this is probably because Alvin got to pick his own line up for the backing band Ten… Read more
