Price: £12.49

5.0 out of 5 stars ted-tastic, 3 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An interesting and very good product this hot/cold teddy, is teddy bear shaped and printed with a teddy face, and made from a soft flocked type material on the outside. Microwave for the specified time and this is a very warm but not too hot product.
Its size is not much bigger than two adult hands held together.
So it meats the criteria of it works retains heat or cold, and appears to be safe to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gogglebox, 27 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Safety/Painting goggles, ideal for all round vision, the strap is adjustable, the lense will take minor bumps with ease, and the goggles are as comfortable as expected, and they do keep the paint from your eyes so overall, good product.

5.0 out of 5 stars What You see is What you Get, 27 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Duvet covers as described, so the double fits nicely our double duvet. The colours are pretty similar to those in the pictures so you can buy these with some confidence that what you see is what you get.
The Poly-cotton material is cool to touch and not uncomfortable after a night’s sleep, so overall a nice set.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Want Your Love, 27 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sides (Audio CD)
This however is the definitive version of the album. The original mix, bucket load of outtakes ( there are more to be found on the 'Private parts and piece's' album also available on Amazon) A new stereo mix and the final disc is a 5.1 mix which Simon Heyward has excelled himself on its not just Steven Wilson who can do a good prog 5.1 mix.
The album itself drops the pastoral sounds of previous albums not completely but it has a very different feel to 'Wise...' and the 'Geese ...' (both also avilable on Amazon), for a more electric feel, which is more ahead of its time.
Esoteric have put together a very nice clamshell package holding the four discs, a poster A4 sized, and a 20 page booklet packed with well written notes.
Anyone on the fence on this should not be disappointed with the release if they purchase it.
Good sound great surround mix and neat package.

3.0 out of 5 stars A picture never lies but it can stretch the truth, 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Caveat Emptor, they say a picture never lies but the pictures on this site seem to show properly embroidered cushion covers, we though that they looked nice and so took a punt and bought some, a picture never lies but it can stretch the truth.
What arrived was cushion covers with and embroidered style of print, I suppose for the price I should have expected that, and looking at the reviews I had been warned.
In the end you do get what you pay for and so beware the pictures are flattering to the product but if you are paying around £2:50 per cushion delivered from China do you really expect to be getting high quality embroidered cushions?
The score reflects that these are not that bad but just all is not what it appears.

4.0 out of 5 stars Complementary to the course study guides, 25 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Typical of these books the AS/A Level Maths For Dummies takes you through this level of maths in a simple step by step way to explain who some of those higher maths problems are solved.
For my Daughter an A-level maths student this has helped to clarify some areas by explaining in a different way from the way she had been explained before.
I would say this is complementary to the course study guides and sometimes that change in presentation makes sense of the syllabus method.

4.0 out of 5 stars Those things that you used to do, 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Live show recorded for radio of the Gregg Allman band in 1987, in San Francisco, the show is well recorded by KFOG-FM and the source of this grey market release appears to be a high quality source (master-tape) and not an off air recording.

The set list is pretty standard for the period with a mix of Allman Brothers Band songs and songs from the new album at the time ‘I’m No Angel’ the set list being:
Don't want you no more
It’s not my cross to Bear
Old time Feelin'
Faces without names
Trouble no more
Anything goes
Hot 'Lanta
Those things that you used to do
Queen of hearts
I'm no angel
Statesboro blues
Please call home
Whipping post
Encore: One way out
The band would probably the ‘I’m no Angel’ recording band
Gregg Allman – Hammond Organ, Lead Vocals
Dan Toler – Guitar
Tim Heding – Keyboards, Background Vocals
Bruce Waibel – Bass Guitar, Background Vocals
David Frankie Toler – Drums
Chaz Trippy – Percussion

Overall the sound quality is good though for me the bass could have been a little higher in the mix and that would have pulled the whole sound field up a bit, I do think this is where the sound suffers from 80’s recording techniques.
Rox Vox (the release company) have also written quite an nice essay making this a superior release of this type with a high quality 8 page booklet and good pictures which are contemporary to the recording.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only Heaven Knows, 22 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: As Close As You Think (Audio CD)
Kevin Ayers 1986 album finally gets a CD release; it’s a mixed bag to say the least as bag to say the least. I will try and cover the good points;
It’s been released on CD for the first time
It contains songs of wit and originality
And that’s about it, the production is horrible, and I am not sure if this is Gonzo's fault they do have a bit of a reputation for hit and miss production, that it lacks any bass (a surprise given Boz Burrell’s day job ) or the eighties drum sound which sounds like a bad drum machine (Over to Fairlight programming by Poli Palmer), or the David Sandborn sounding sax playing by Pat Crumly all of which cover up all of the wit and wisdom of the songs.
This album sounds at its best when stripped back which is a shame it takes to the last track "Budget Tours (part two)" for find this out.
There are good songs trying to get out "Only Heaven Knows" sounds a bit like the Beach Boys, ‘Too Old to Die Young’ good enough for an album to be named after the title.
Highlights are just too few though.
That Gonzo have also not even given any details beyond who played on the album in the accompanying four page ‘booklet’, a small biography even like that which appears on their website would have been nice.
It’s an album I have wanted for a while to complete the collection but Gonzo's stripped back approach makes this more of a disappointment than it should have been. This is not the place to start if a Kevin Ayers collection that would go to ‘whatevershebringswesing’ available on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A monitor which comes with batteries, 19 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Easy to set up and easy to use this home blood pressure monitor is just that a proper arm cuff, a monitor which comes with batteries so this will work out of the box, rather than hunting around for 4 AAA batteries.
This works and gives a reasonably accurate reading, I seem to be in the normal range.
The monitor has an easy to read display, and a bar at the bottom of the display showing how well or ill you are, as I said it shows me in the normal range.
Not much more to say it works its easy to use and the set up instructions are pretty easy to understand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smells horrible tastes worse, 19 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Warrior Supplements smells horrible tastes worse but does the job as an intra-work out reviver. Best mixed with something strong to mask the taste.
It comes in a big bottle easy to open and easy to see if it had been tampered with as well, and arrived well packed.
Good product if you an put up with the unpleasantness
