The curtain poles are an elegant and stylish addition to my home. I bought two sets to put up curtains in my hall and I am delighted with the result. They were easy to put up and perfect for the purpose. We have been doing some extensive alterations to the house and needed some items that were both practical and elegant and these fill the bill. They are timeless in design and look.
As ever, the cd reflects what is 'fashionable' on the scene. Great as an intro for newcomers to the genre and as a taster before investing in the individual artists. It does not, nor does it purport to, reflect the best in folk. That would be too subjective, although others have suggested that they do. All in all it is just an excellent collection designed to showcase the Folk Awards and makes a varied and entertaining listen on car journeys.
A real gem of talent here. I kept an open mind as I had not had any stuff of Phil's before but I was entertained. Fine guitar playing and a distinctive voice with some of the grit of Dick Gaughan coupled with a certain softness which gives a rare emotion to the lyrics. Contemporary looks into some taboos of modern life along with clssic tunes like "music for a found harmonium" which is beautifully rendered. Bring on more please.
The book and cd set lived up to my expectations. Classic tracks and old favourites mingle with some newer, more edgy material, it covers the years of Topic most effectively. I bought it as a gift for my husband and it has provided hours of joy and ideas for other cds to add to our collection. The information in the book is interesting - not stuffily presented. All in all a very good buy.Three Score & Ten - A Voice to the People
The Breville mixer is efficient and practical. It had handled all my mixing needs without the struggle that some similar sized and priced models have and has turned out some lovely results. (according to the family) I am well impressed.Breville SHM2 Twin Motor Hand and Stand Mixer
