5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking mid-rock singer-songwriter indie album, 8 Jun. 2017
This review is from: Indestructible (MP3 Download)
First thing to say, is this that I am a Jo Burt fan, so this review could be skewed!

Second thing: for new enquirers - what will you get?
The album is well produced (Chris Kimsey - 70s Stones albums); the content is a mix of melodic (above MOR!) and rock numbers.

Packaging includes a Digipack gatefold, with a booklet of lyrics and credits

Highly recommended

A high quality indie release - support this artist...!

2.0 out of 5 stars TASCAM (lack of) support makes this a poor choice, 26 July 2016
The deck is good with a range of functions you would expect and a reasonably intuitive set of controls. My reason for the 2-star review is TASCAM's lousy support: my DP32SD arrived with a non-working AC Adaptor. In the UK, you can't find this item for love nor money and there seem to be no alternatives, because none of them match the barrel size of the pin on the TASCAM Adaptor that goes into the back of the machine. TASCAM hasn't responded to many enquiries - to UK and USA sales, tech support, and so on - over six months. So the £400+ I spent on this is wasted. Buyers beware.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cassette sound quality, 29 Jun. 2016
This review is from: Ditty Wah Ditty (Audio CD)
Playing the download version (waiting for the CD to arrive) this is a disappointment. The mono sound quality is poor - very midrange, and there is evidence of tape wobble. Background hiss could have been removed. Both Cooder and the radio host sound close to mic with some minor 'fuzzy' distortion. Against all that, Cooder is on form with his playing. But it's not the best of the recent rash of his welcome 70s acoustic performances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent LP set of Georgie's key early albums, 24 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To be clear: this review is of the 4-LP vinyl edition of this box set.
The 4 LPs in this package are housed in a substantial, shrink-wrapped, slip case (not a box) and each album is shrink-wrapped within that. The album sleeves are faithfully reproduced (plus bar codes and new copyright info). The inner sleeves carry the same text (I assume) as for the book that goes with the CD version; this results in text on a record sleeve that doesn't necessarily talk about the album it contains!
The 'Fame At Last' LP is in stereo; the other three LPs are in mono. This vinyl issue includes a code, to download MP3 versions of all the tracks included in the CD release: including bonus tracks for all 4 albums, plus the CD of demos and outtakes. Details of these extra tracks are included on the inner sleeves' notes.
The sound quality of these re-masters is excellent throughout.
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another pop documentary in an excellent series, 2 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with other DVDs in this series (I have the Hollies and Small Faces DVDs) this is excellent in all respects: documentary coverage, audio and video quality - even the packaging. I hope they will cover other Sixties artists as well as try have done for Dusty here. A quality product - well worth buying if you're a Dusty fan or simply want to see and hear what this iconic signer was all about.


Esotec101870 Air diaphragm pump Air-S Solar pond aerator
Esotec101870 Air diaphragm pump Air-S Solar pond aerator
Price: £37.74

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the money - lightweight capabiliy, 2 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recommend this product, especially for the money. Best suited to small ponds (mine is 6 x 5 feet, and the effect - bubbles and water current - only extends to one quarter of it).
Assembly and installation is easy-peasy and - providing the solar panel gets full sunshine - it produces a good air stream. There is plenty of lead cable (between the solar panel and the pump) and equally more air tube than you are likely to need (if, not, you could buy a longer air line separately).
The pump needs to sit on clear level ground - e.g. on paving, rather than earth - since the air intake is on its underside.
It does not work well in sub-sunshine conditions and it is with noting that there is no energy storage in this - it simply uses available light to power the pump. If you put you hand in front of the solar pane - creating shade - the pump stops; as literal as that! But this is not a criticism - it works fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great little bath or small pond toy, 2 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great little bath or small pond toy. Wind it up, and it will alternately dive and rise again. It's not too strong on turning itself around when it meets obstacles, but part of the fun is "rescuing" it and sending it on its way. I have two, played with in my small pond; we occasionally have to fish them out from the bottom of the pond! For the money, this is a great toy and good value. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars the quality of production is excellent. Highly recommended and, 2 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Janod Ducky Fishing Game (Toy)
This is a quality toy - the packaging alone is impressive: your 6 ducks and 2 fishing rods come in a clear plastic zipped "suitcase" which can be reused. The ducks are made of strong but squeezy plastic; the rods are made from well-finished wood and the metal hooks are finished off to ensure there are no pointy ends. For something so simple in concept, the quality of production is excellent. Highly recommended and, by the way, although I bought this for two kids aged 5 and 7, my octogenarian neighbours have spent hours fishing the ducks out of my pond - memories of bygone fun fairs? Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quality, traditional toy yacht, 2 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a quality toy, and I highly recommend it - a traditional sailing boat, with fully adjustable sails and rudder. The construction is very good throughout, with quality materials; such that the boat will NOT capsize! If you are looking for a "proper" toy yacht, this is it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good camera, poor manual, 12 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The camera works well (based on a few first trials). The casing etc. - in hard plastic - seems reasonably resilient. The HD video option output looks a bit grainy (my test shots were taken in full daylight) - but that could be down to my laptop screen? Anyway, I am more interested in capturing What Happens than in making a movie! If that's what you are looking for, this will do what you want, at the right price. What lets this product down is its manual: it lacks the logic you need, to go step-by-step to set it up; in places, the wording is confusing. Trial and error will sort that out, and the basic operation is simple to dial up, once you get the hang of it. Note that you will need a suitable SD card and 8 AA batteries, to get going.
