When Every Song Was New

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality folk music, 23 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A bumper 14 tracks mixing contemporary and traditional, and not a single dud amongst them. With excellent singing and harmonies, and fine instrumental accompaniment, this CD invites multiple plays.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Compatible With Magformers, 21 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While the write up suggests, and the photos give every appearance of these being identical to Magformers pieces, they are most definitely NOT. For a start the pieces are only 1/3 the size of the real thing, and the magnets are weaker. Also 26 of the pieces are actually just square inserts for alphabet stickers (included), so are unusable for construction. These could possibly suit smaller children, or those with dexterity problems, who might find the strong magnets on the real thing make construction difficult. This set is just about value for money, if you accept its limitations, and it did only take about 10 days to arrive from China.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Compact Speaker, 2 Feb. 2016
This is Yamaha's foray into Sonos territory, and a very good job they've made of it. Intended mostly as part of the company's Musicast multi-room set up, it works perfectly well as a stand alone speaker. Firstly, and most importantly, it sounds great in a medium sized room, so much so that you forget you're actually listening in mono. It also sounds just as good at low, background, levels, something not all speakers manage. Although it's compact and easily relocated, it is mains powered only. Also, there are no USB or 3.5mm jack sockets. All content arrives wirelessly via Bluetooth or AirPlay. It also connects to wi-fi so that it can play internet radio. There is an App for the system, which can control multiple units in different rooms, if required. Some reviewers have complained that the touch sensitive controls on top are difficult to see, especially in poor light, as they are not back lit. However, Yamaha almost certainly expect you to be using the app rather than the buttons for control purposes, as it also allows access to additional features such as tonal adjustments, and links to streaming services like Spotify, (although not the basic free versions unfortunately), as well as radio stations. As, with all these things, it really is a very personal matter as to what appeals, and what doesn't, and you should always listen before buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Bryson At His Best, 17 Nov. 2015

Bill's back, and as good as ever. Wry humour, pithy observation, and a few home truths about us and the society we have become, make this essential reading. As always, it's hard to put down, and when you've finished, leaves you wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Bluegrass And An mp3 Bargain, 17 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent set from Della Mae which fully deserverved the plaudits it received on release. Standout track for me is "Ain't No Ash Will Burn". Buying the downloaded version is way cheaper if you can do without the CD and its booklet, and as all my CDs and vinyl are now in I-tunes on my laptop, I have Amazon Music set up to convert any new downloads from them straight to It. So I was listening to this alongside the rest of my collection within a couple of minutes of buying it.

This review is from: This Life (MP3 Download)
Kim's crystal clear voice does full justice to a mix of self penned, contemporary and traditional songs, ably supported by the group. A great showpiece of where folk music is today. There's nothing more to say really, other than give it a try.

Most comfortable briefs on the market. Worth paying for, and unlike some cheaper products, actually are the size they say they are.
