5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide for aspiring diagnosticians, 28 Mar. 2017
For many years, Peter Farrell had a successful herbal practice on the Fylde coast in Lancashire. Although too modest to claim it for himself, Peter's reputation as a herbal practitioner was built upon the firm foundation of his skills as a brilliant diagnostician. This excellently organised volume is the essential distillation of his diagnostic experience.

It is highly recommended to all aspiring students of disciplines within the field of complementary medicine, whilst more experienced practitioners would find it useful as a handy and highly portable aide memoire for use whilst examining patients since it features examination techniques covering all of the body's systems.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product isn't a CD and is in effect misdescribed by Amazon. So called 'copy controlled' CDs are not CDs because they do not comply with the Phillips-Sony Blue book standard for CD manufacture. These items are not guaranteed to work with every CD player and because of a massive consumer resistance to these products recording companies have ended to turn their backs on such techniques. The one I bought works with my CD but I was extremely disappointed to find such items still on sale and described as CDs.

As for the content, Clara is a wonderful singer with tremendous authority, but I am not entirely sure that this is typical of her usual fare. Of all the songs on the album, only the last track, Morena de Angola stands out as for me. The rest has a very subdued, minor key feel to it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure about this product, 2 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After I posted this review I was contacted by the seller who offered to refund 30% of the price of this item if I 'helped them' with my review, I told them that I was unprepared to alter my review because people needed to be able to see honest reviews. I received another communication from them today (7,12,16) but the refund offer is now rescinded. I leave potential customers to draw their own conclusions. Since writing the above addition to my review I have now discovered that a high proportion of the reviews for this product have been written by individuals who have been offered either free or discounted drives.

I bought this DVD drive essentially by mistake. The mistake was to compare a relative handful of all five star reviews with the many five star reviews but with a few negative reviews for the Lite On DVD drive I had considered. As an experienced computer builder I know that Lite On make the best DVD drives, and frankly I do not feel as confident with this product.

It may prove okay but looking the drive over I am not over confident. Using the drive with a net book, it tends to misbehave on powering up, cycling up from zero revs to high revs then switching off again, repeating again and again until I disconnect the drive from the machine. On repowering, the machine then behaves. It may prove to be a minor glitch but I fear it could also herald a breakdown soon enough.

I stated that Lite On DVD drives are regarded by those in the know as a superior drive. I am not really sure why this product actually costs more than Lite On DVD drives since this Vic TsIng drive is in effect a relatively unproven, Chinese manufactured product. I note that the sales patter with this drive makes a good deal of the quality of the cable. It is hoped that it is since the non standard nature of the USB drive may well lead to problems finding replacements should the one supplied fail.

Having just re-examined my order on Amazon, I note that it states, 'eligible for return until January 31st 2017', that being around 6 weeks after my purchase date. Under the British Sale of Goods Act, all products purchased within the UK that fail within a twelve month period are eligible for a refund, if returned to the seller.

3.0 out of 5 stars It is fine for the £4, 26 Jun. 2016
This is a sampler. It is fine for the £4.99 I paid for it on Ebay, apart from one track where Elis' voice is added to a rather tacky modern disco track. It is certainly a five star introduction to a wonderful CD but does not merit the silly price currently being asked for it on Amazon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very poor fare indeed, 26 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rise Of The Nazi Party [DVD] (DVD)
This is a very poor series clearly created on a budget, probably for a low rent television series. Commentators frequently appear talking head style, with very little of import to say much of the time. and with very little by way of psychological or historical insight and frequent errors of fact. Use of contemporary film material is poor and is often padded out by contemporary scenes that often have little or no relevance to the account. Extremely annoying is the use of sound effects almost every time a scene changes which leads me to wonder just exactly what is the target age that this series is designed to appeal to.. In short, this series is very poor fare indeed and offers little of depth.


Seeds on the Ground by Airto (1996-01-09)
Seeds on the Ground by Airto (1996-01-09)

5.0 out of 5 stars A genuine masterpiece of Brazilian music, 9 Mar. 2016
What do you get when you combine the drumming of Airto, the percussion genius of Dom um Romao- chosen by Antonio Carlos Jobim to play drums on his collaboration with Frank Sinatra, the measured double bass of Ron Carter the preeminent bassist who accompanied many of Miles Davis’ recordings of the sixties, the improvisational skill of Hermeto Paschoal, otherwise known as ‘o Bruxha’- the wizard, the accordion of virtuoso Sivuca and last but not least the vocal dexterity of Airto’s wife, Flora Purim?

Given the personnel it should come as no surprise that this record is a masterpiece. The music ranges from the most beautiful, lilting Brazilian folk melodies through sambas to avant garde jazz but does so so seamlessly that there is not the slightest incongruity anywhere. Always underpinning this album is a love of the music of Brazil, performed with the greatest musicality, good taste, and the sweetest of vocals even if Flora Purim’s singing on ‘o Sonho’ does veer ever so slightly towards the excesses of her later cocaine fuelled flights of fancy.

I bought this album forty years ago and was mesmerised then; all these years later, I have just bought it again on CD and once more I am mesmerised. I can say that for no other recording in my collection.Other US reviewers have drawn attention to Hermeto's centrality in the creation of this album. It certainly contains ideas that surface elsewhere where Hermeto can be found. Hermeto was known for helping the careers of others besides Airto and his spirit of generosity as well as his creativity pervades this album.

A word of warning. My vinyl edition actually contains two separate albums, ‘Seeds on the Ground’ and the earlier, ‘Natural feelings’. Some editions of the CD of ‘Seeds on the Ground’ have only the around seven tracks of the vinyl album Seeds on the Ground, whilst others have 16 tracks and include all of the two before mentioned albums. Amazon UK doesn’t even give a track listing so I bought my copy from Amazon .com. Be sure to buy the 16 track edition and ask any seller before ordering because many sellers ask huge sums for the lesser track listing. If captivated by the album you will want the tracks from Natural Feelings and you could end up having to buy Seeds on the Ground again- the 16 track version because Natural Feelings isn’t available as a CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Neutrik makes the finest electronic connectors in the world but were forced by ..., 12 Feb. 2016
Contrary to another reviewer I feel I must point out that this jack plug is not 'pro'. Neutrik makes the finest electronic connectors in the world but were forced by cheap imports from China to develop their own cheap Chinese range. The giveaway is the letters NYS. No European connecor carries a product code beginning NYS- only the economy brand. These are reasonable connectors but not 'pro' quality.

It is worth pointing out that the only 3.5mm jack plug made in Europe to pro standards is the right angled jack plug NPT3RCand it is available on Amazon for less that this seller is charging for the second rate Chinese product. I leave prospective purchasers to reach their own conclusions why this should be the case.

There's nothing wrong with the music on this album- in fact it's very fine indeed. Be aware though that this sampler of some of Elis' more jazz recordings is available elsewhere on t'internet for under a fiver and quite rightly so.

1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! This is not an Elis Regina record, 11 Feb. 2016
This is not an Elis Regina record. It is a sampler that has one song by Elis. The rest is fairly poor, very poppy fare. The Elis song comes from the album Falso Brillhante which is currently on sale for considerably less than this album.
