5.0 out of 5 stars DON'T STAY HOME WITHOUT IT, 18 July 2015
I bought this beautiful box set the day it was first released. Along with the two other sequel box sets of his 50s and 60s output, it remains the best package of '70's Elvis songs ever put together. By far.

Other than combining the best of Elvis Presley's astounding body of work recorded in the 70's, the main feature here is that the tracks are lifted directly from original master recordings! So we are listening to the same sound quality that the technicians would've heard at the final editing stage in the studios back then. And I can tell you the sound is heavenly.

You'll hear the magnificence of Elvis' voice together with all that power normally associated with his 70's recordings. Playing them loud on a top notch sound system is a mind blowing experience every time - and that's how Elvis deserves to be heard. His phenomenal vocals and delivery style combined with a truly outstanding band and backing singers are amplified triple fold in this package. Suddenly, the B sides of the original releases are as important as the A sides.

You further realise that more of the album fillers at the time should have been released as singles. The tracks are that good. You'll get to hear rock, country, ballad, together with hints of blues, funk and soul performed like no other. But what stands out in every track is Elvis' special voice and excitingly unique singing style.

This package silenced all who suggested or presumed that Elvis simply took a back seat in the 70's. Listening to this box set will make any music follower fully realise how ill-informed this notion is, and just how untouchable this phenomenal guy actually was, is, and forever will be.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT SCALP STIMULATOR, 26 May 2015
Picked this item up in a department store after seeing its reasonable price, and having remembered that I occasionally have aches and pains from gym strains and general every day wear and tear.

With almost a month's use now I can conclude that it is a useful apparatus to own but not to replace professional physiotherapy or traditional massage. With its two option selection, of just vibration or vibration with infrared, it will offer mild relief from neck, shoulder and lower back aches - but you will still need to seek professional help for more serious pains. The infrared is fairly mild and not too penetrative.

However, with one of the three rubber attachments included, I found its greatest use to be as a soothing scalp and facial massager. It gives vigorous stimulation to the scalp, face, and neck, and could even eliminate tension related headaches after a good ten minute session. I feel great afterwards and this has now become a twice daily routine for me. Before a shower in the morning and last thing at night.

Wunderbar!

5.0 out of 5 stars ELVIS GOT A LOT OF LOVIN', 10 May 2015
Elvis' second and most colourful movie - and probably his best.

If you want to visit the 1950's for ninety minutes, then this vehicle will transport you back there. And though I was many years from even being born yet, I can feel I am in that era every time I watch this movie. And I love it.

The plot is loosely based on Elvis' rise to stardom, as his movie character is discovered by a publicist who knew a good thing when she saw it. Signing him up to her partner's band, he quickly becomes a household name. You will see performances such as the iconic Teddy Bear scene, (Let's have a) Party, an awesome Mean Woman Blues performance, and of course the title song Loving You. The most interesting routine comes at the end as Elvis sings and gyrates the way he did in his live concerts at the time. Also, his actual father and mother (in the powder blue dress) were in the audience cheering him on in that particular scene. He never watched that movie again after his beloved mom's death a year later.

In the script, Elvis meets and falls for a beautiful Dolores Hart. Today Dolores is a nun and speaks publicly and fondly of her time with Elvis.

Elvis looks, well, so Elvis in this film. Exceptionally handsome, he carries all his famous trademarks here - the blue eyes, that curled lip, the Elvis smile, the sneer, the Elvis strut, the slick black hair, and of course the body shakes - it's all here in bundles. It's the iconic 'fifties' Elvis you read about in books and magazines!

I strongly recommend this fabulous picture-perfect DVD for your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A ROCK MOVIE CLASSIC, 3 May 2015
This review is from: Jailhouse Rock [DVD] (DVD)
In a nutshell, a young punk is jailed for manslaughter and emerges from prison as a fame-worthy singer!

As movie plots go, this is a typical 1950's 'boy makes good' storyline. As a musical however, this is certainly legendary material. Twenty two year old Elvis throws himself into this role like a pro, and should've won some kind of film award for his highly believable presentation of the main character, Vince Everett. He plays the sulky, arrogant, and violent role so well that you forget it is Elvis Presley. But you are intermittently reminded with the fantastic musical numbers throughout the movie that it is Elvis, especially the Baby I Don't Care number.

This great 1957 black & white classic boasts the first on screen music video, and that is the movie title song Jailhouse Rock. Said to be partly choreographed by Elvis himself, it is one of the most recognized musical song and dance classics of all time. The title song needs no introduction of course, being one of the most important anthems ever in rock & roll history. Elvis performs this hard hitting song into masterpiece category.

Elvis was totally traumatized upon completion of this movie when he learnt of the tragic death of his 24 year old co-star, Judy Tyler, who never lived to see this movie. She died in a car accident twelve weeks before the film's official release.

Jailhouse Rock is a great movie classic you'll watch many times over. Recommended as a must for your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars RAZZLE DAZZLE, 26 April 2015
A fabulous big glossy epic of a book crammed with beautiful black & white and colour pictures. Elvis appeared briefly in Las Vegas in the fifties and then performed month long stints from July 1969 to December 1976, and was absolutely the king of Vegas.

Written by the highly acclaimed Elvis historian Erik Lorentzen, the book tells the story all the way in stunning pictures, words, and quotes.

Recommended to the Elvis fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars ZONE VOLUME CONTROL, 25 April 2015
Connect and independently control up to five speakers to the same audio source. This is ideal for such public places as hotels or restaurants where volume requirements differ from one zone to another. Loud music may be required in zone A whereas a lower volume is more suitable in the other zones, thereby allowing different volume settings for the five separate zones. Furthermore, no electric or battery power is required.

This sturdy all metal analogue instrument has been in flawless use in our establishment for the past two years.

However, though I am able to recommended this product and its functionality, the price offered here is overtly expensive compared to how much I paid elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars SOUND ADVICE, 16 Feb. 2015
Purchased after allowing the shop salesman to enthusiastically talk me into it, they are now my favourite of all the headphones I have had, or tried. They're far from cheap, so my expectations were very high.

'Unboxing' this item was a good start and an anxious act in itself, with so much care taken in the luxurious packaging. This set comes complete with two special neatly packed connecting cables, a jack adaptor, and a small brochure.

To suggest that these are the best built headphones would be an exaggeration but I can tell you they are true quality with a metal frame and are obviously created to last a very long time. Light and comfortable, their physical flexibility and finish can put up with everyday handling. The headband can even be twisted 180 degrees and it'll just spring back to shape.

In sound, they can compete with the best - perfect treble and bass with good depth and clarity. Most impressive for me is the natural reproduction of the audio source. Music sounds exactly as it's supposed to and not overly enhanced or artificially 'beautified' as with many other headphones. I did find however that they need a period of play time before they reach their peak performance. This 'settling in' period took about a week or so of daily use. In other words they can get better with time.

When through with them, they fold into half their extended size to fit snugly in their handsome hard-shell carrying case.

I'm very happy with this purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT COFFEE, GREAT LOOKS, 23 Jan. 2015
With a heavy metal build and beautiful all red finish, this most attractive espresso machine can be proudly placed anywhere. Whether at home or at work, it never fails to attract comment from visitors. More importantly, it makes great espresso and cappuccino with both ground coffee and appropriate round coffee sachets.

The only let down for me is that it doesn't automatically control the delivery of the pressure water - you have to stand by the machine to manually stop the water when the desired level in the cup is reached. So if you're distracted for one reason or another, the water overflows. Some other machines deliver pre-set water dosages and stop automatically. For most people this is not an issue, but that's the only reason I did not score this item with the full 5 stars.

This is a terrific coffee maker and, in terms of taste, can almost match bigger and more expensive models found in cafés and restaurants.

5.0 out of 5 stars ESPRESSOMANIA, 22 Jan. 2015
Without a doubt, this machine is the favourite espresso maker of any small machines I've tried. And it's extremely fast, with hardly any waiting time between preparations.

With a solid metal build and eye catching good looks, this one rivals the performance of bigger machines found in coffee shops or restaurants. Additionally, it delivers the pressure water in automatically measured quantities - so you don't have to be on guard to stop the water delivery. Just select a single or double and it stops when the right amount is delivered. And of course it froths milk for your cappuccino like a pro!

Another bonus feature is that it has an in-built self protection mechanism that reminds you to add water when the level goes below the required level. And if you forget to switch it off, it does that for you after fifteen about minutes. It's so easy to clean too.

I honestly couldn't find a single fault with this coffee maker. If you're looking for a compact and solid machine that produces perfect espresso or cappuccino then this is an excellent option.
