4.0 out of 5 stars Gift card and message, 5 Nov 2011
I have used this facility before for friends and relatives in several parts of the world and this time, as ever, the service was speedy, excellent, precise and exactly what was required. I feared that a gift card rather than a gift itself was something of a cop-out, might be looked upon as lazy, avoiding the effort of finding something tangible. In fact, recipients have always said the gift voucher was exactly what they wanted as they could then choose for themselves. Thank you Amazon.

English Tale is a mix of her own songs and some written by Vo Fletcher, who shares the billing with her and is heard singing as well as providing guitar and mandolin accompaniment. Ric Sanders' violin is also heard on some of the tracks. Vo Fletcher must also take credit for the production of this CD, which implies that their… Read more
