Texas Troubadour
Texas Troubadour
Price: £13.72

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent collection of a sadly underknown genius, 11 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Texas Troubadour (Audio CD)
Townes Van Zandt is a sorely under recognised singer/songwriter from the late 60's onwards. His mix of country, spiritual and emotional songs are truly magnificent, and his authentic Texas lifestyle playing to 50 people at a time in dive bars and living hard fit easily into the romantic notion of the country star. Even if in the end it was that hard living that added to his passing at an absurdly young age in 1997.
I would recommend this collection to not just country music fans, but to all fans of great songs delivered with authenticity and emotion. There are so many great numbers on this collection of 7 albums and some added live tracks that the price is worth it for even a third of what you get.
On top of which Pancho and Lefty is a genuine work of genius and one of the finest country songs ever written.


A Stab in the Dark (Matthew Scudder Mysteries Book 4)
A Stab in the Dark (Matthew Scudder Mysteries Book 4)

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great detective story, 11 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another good economical story. I love these detective noir books from the late 70's ands early 80's. They may take a bit of getting used too for a modern audience but I think that the atmosphere and tone are so enthralling that they are definitely worth it.
Lawrence Block has created a great detective character in Matthew Scudder, flawed and vulnerable but idealistic and noble at the same time.
I highly recommend all these books to lovers of crime fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny Action Adventure, 8 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good fun film that Is happy to poke fun at the 'superhero' genre and not take itself seriously at all.
In it's own right it is a pretty decent origin story with some good action and impressive visuals. Where it really succeeds though is with it's characters. The bad guys are fairly ill-defined (in common with a lot of this type of film) However the main characters are all very nicely set up and because of that we feel a real emotional response to events in the film.
This is very definitely not one for kids as the humour, violence and swearing are very deliberately adult even if they are childish.
Overall I think this is a great film for a Friday night with a few beers.


Saffron Walden (Pocket Images)

Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fathers day gift, 27 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a present for my Father, who lives in Saffron Walden and is always interested in local history.
He loves it and likes to use the photos to take him to the current places and compare the two, it shows the huge changes that have taken place in what was once a smallish market town, but is now a growing commuter belt town.
Overall I am impressed with the quality and range of the pictures in this book and would heartily recommend it to anyone who was interested in Local/Essex history

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, 6 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed this book a lot, it really helped tie together the mythos of the broken empire, and added to the 'prince of thorns' story with a lot of its background. I really like the characters of Jal and Snorri and the chemistry between them, this has been the thread that for me has held the whole trilogy together.
A couple of plot points towards the end seem a little rushed (such as the unborn prince) but overall it is a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy with plenty of laughs, action and emotion along the way.
Personally I would put this as the 2nd best book in the set after the brilliant first part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great action collection, 6 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great value Box set. The 4th film isn't very good, but the price is worth it just for the original adventures, which as some of the finest boys own action films of the 80's.
The Hi Def transfer is great, the sound is great and the extras are very interesting indeed. This is definitely something that any fan of these films should own.
I will even watch 'Kingdom of the crystal skull' again as it is part of the set, if I don't like it then the 3 film box set came with a free beer coaster! Bargain

Justice League vs Teen Titans (includes Mini Figure) [Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ Sam Liu
Offered by YouWantIt-WeGotIt
Price: £15.69

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun animated outing, 30 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this film, as a fan of the teen titans it was good to see them get the feature length treatment. The tone was right with plenty of humour from beast boy and blue Beatle. The justice league are also pretty well served, however I think calling this a 'vs' film is a little misleading.
Overall it is great entertainment and the best use of Damian Wayne so far in the animated features.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant baby wipes, 30 May 2016

After a bad experience with some other wipes we moved back to using these. We have never had any problems with the extra sensitive and the new package design makes them even easier to use.
