5.0 out of 5 stars GERMAN ARMY ISSUE FLECKTARN PATTERN UNLINED COMBAT JACKET - XL, 29 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wanted a cheap jacket to wear walking and this one fitted the bill perfectly.

As other reviewers had mentioned that the jacket sizing was a little on the small side and with me being a big chap decided to order the XL - and it fits perfectly.

The jacket looked new and unworn. The canvas style fabric is thick and good quality and the jacket has a number of deep pockets. The sleeves come with velcro cuffs so you can adjust to fitting to suit you...oh and there's also a hood to keep the rain off.

Used the jacket over the weekend and found it to be warm, with enough pockets and storage space for the usual gloves and stuff I take on a long walk.

Looks very much like the jacket in the picture!

BG's Rating 4.5 out of 5! - good quality jacket for the outdoors type!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kombat Mens Military Printed T-Shirt, 9 Oct. 2012
Liked the slogan so thought I'd take a punt on this T-Shirt. I must admit that I'm please with my buy as it's good robust T-Shirt with a nice quality transfer. I'm quite a big guy but found the LARGE fitting roomy enough!

So if you are a battled hardened military sniper or just a "Weekend Warrior" having a go at paintballing on a stag-do this T-Shirt could be for you!

So "Get to da Choppa" and pick one up

BG's Rating 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Budgie - Budgie (1971), 13 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Budgie (Audio CD)
This album originally saw the light of day in 1971 and must easily be one of the most under-rated debut albums of the decade.

This hard rocking debut has such classic tunes as "Guts" and "Homicidal Suicidal" and would influence bands such as Metallica and Soundgarden who have bothered covered tracks that appear on this album.

A near perfect debut from the Welsh Rock legends

Track listings
All songs written and composed by Burke Shelley, Tony Bourge and Ray Phillips.

1. "Guts" 4:21
2. "Everything in My Heart" 0:52

4.0 out of 5 stars Rush - Time Stand Still : The Collection, 1 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I must admit to not being the greatest afficando when it comes to RUSH so bearing that in mind I was pleasantly surprised by how much I like this compilation CD.

OK I understand that die-hard fans of the band would have these tracks ten-times over but for someone just wanting a budget priced introduction to the band you couldn't go far wrong with purchasing this CD.

BG's Rating: for fans of classic hard rock wanting an introduction to RUSH on a budget you couldn't go far wrong with this CD. This is classic rock on a shoestring people...rejoice! 8/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Rainbow - Classic : The Masters Collection, 1 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Formed in 1975 by Deep Purple's Richie Blackmore RAINBOW were a hard rock sensation during the late 1970's to the early 1980's.

Rainbow was originally fronted by rock legend Ronnie James Dio but due to clashes with Blackmore over the direction of the band he was fired. This was a regular occurance and Rainbow had several different line-ups with vocalists including Graham Bonnet & Joe Lynn Turner.

This budget priced CD includes songs by all three vocalists and as such is a great introduction to the music of Blackmore's Rainbow!

Track Listing:

1. All Night Long 03:51
2. Catch The Rainbow 06:36
3. Since You Been Gone 03:17
4. I Surrender 04:02
5. Stone Cold 05:17
6. Kill The King 4 04:28
7. Stargazer 08:26
8. Starstruck 04:07
9. Sixteenth Century Greensleeves
10. Man On The Silver Mountain 04:37
11. Long Live Rock N Roll 04:20
12. Run With The Wolf
13. Lost In Hollywood 04:52
14. If You Don't Like Rock N Roll 02:36
15. Miss Mistreated 04:26
16. Death Alley Driver 04:45

BG's Rating: at it's current bargain price (£3.00) this Compilation is a great value buy. Rainbow were a great rock band and have some great material (alot of which is on this CD) so it's not a shock to find them in 90th place on "VH1's 100 Greatest Acts of Hard Rock". A must buy for anyone looking for classic hard rock on a budget: 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Budgie - Squawk (1972), 31 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Squawk (Audio CD)
Squawk was the 2nd long player to be released by Welsh Rock Legends Budgie and hit the shelves in September 1972. This album is packed with killer tunes and ranks as one of the greatest hard rock albums of the 1970's. From the Classic riffage of Whiskey River, Hot As a Docker's Armpit and Stranded to the beautiful acoustic tracks Rolling On Home and Make Me Happy I can't put into words such how perfect this album is...

Track Listing:

1. "Whiskey River" 3:27
2. "Rocking Man" 5:25
3. "Rolling Home Again" 1:47
4. "Make Me Happy" 2:37
5. "Hot as a Docker's Armpit" 5:53
6. "Drugstore Woman" 3:14
7. "Bottled" 1:57
8. "Young is a World" 8:14
9. "Stranded" 6:17

Bonus tracks
10. "Whiskey River" (A side single version) 2:39
11. "Stranded" (alternate mix) 6:19
12. "Whiskey River" (2003 version) 3:20
13. "Rolling Home Again" (2004 version)

BG's Rating: This remastered CD (complete with bonus tracks) shows a legendary band at the height of its power! Great songwriting coupled with great musicianship and a hard rocking sound goes to make BUDGIE one of the greated HARD ROCK bands Ever! 10/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Lynyrd Skynyrd - The Last Rebel (1993), 26 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Rebel (Audio CD)
I'm a big fan of (pre-accident) Lynyrd Skynyrd so I approached this the 7th studio (the 2nd from the new line-up) with caution but due to the bargain price (£2.99) it was being offered at I thought I would take the plunge.

Well I'm glad to say that I'm pleased to have taken that plunge as "The Last Rebel" is a good album by a very good band!

Ok so it's not a patch on the classic Lynyrd Skynyrd albums but that said it does represent a nice slice of "Southern Rock" and lesser bands would kill to have it on their CV!

Track listing

"Good Lovin's Hard to Find" - (Johnny Van Zant, Gary Rossington, Ed King, Robert White Johnson)
"One Thing" - (Johnny Van Zant, Gary Rossington, Ed King, Dale Krantz-Rossington, Kurt Custer)
"Can't Take That Away" - (Michael Gerald Lunn, Robert White Johnson, Johnny Van Zant)
"Best Things in Life" - (Gary Rossington, Keifer, Johnny Van Zant)
"The Last Rebel" - (Gary Rossington, Robert White Johnson, Johnny Van Zant, Michael Gerald Lunn)
"Outta Hell In My Dodge" - (Johnny Van Zant, Randall Hall, Ed King, Robert White Johnson)
"Kiss Your Freedom Goodbye" - (Ed King, Johnny Van Zant)
"South Of Heaven" - (Michael Gerald Lunn, Robert White Johnson, Gary Rossington, Johnny Van Zant)
"Love Don't Always Come Easy" - (Ed King, Johnny Van Zant)
"Born to Run" - (Johnny Van Zant, Gary Rossington, Ed King, Donnie Van Zant)

BG's Verdict : 3.5 out of a possible 5.0 (Rounded up to 4 stars for Amazon)

5.0 out of 5 stars If Swallowed Do Not Induce Vomiting - Budgie, 24 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: If Swallowed.. -Remast- (Audio CD)
If Swallowed Do Not Induce Vomiting was originally released as a 12" EP in July 1980 and was used to "break in" new guitarist "Big" John Thomas who had been brought into the band to replace Tony Bourge. The EP marks a slight change in Budgie's sound with a more straight forward Hard Rock / Heavy Metal sound on "Wild Fire" and "High School Girls". While these are two good tracks in their own right they are not a patch on the quite legendary "Panzer Division Destroyed" & "Lies of Jim (The E Type Lover)" which show that Burke Shelley had lost none of his creative genius!

This re-mastered CD has two bonus tracks with live versions of "High School Girls" and "Panzer Division Destroyed" which while nice to have don't add that much to a quite splendid EP!

1. Wild Fire
2. High School Girls
3. Panzer Division Destroyed
4. Lies of Jim (The E Type Lover)
5. High School Girls (Live - 1980)
6. Panzer Division Destroyed (Live - 1980)

BG's: This CD is a must have for fans of legendary Welsh rockers Budgie and for fans of great hard rock music in general...it rocks hard people! 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Protrek : SGW-300HB-3AVER, 5 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brand: Protrek (Casio)
Model : SGW-300HB-3AVER

I was looking for a rugged / hard wearing digital watch and this piece of kit fitted the bill perfectly.

It's a decent sized watch with a nice large display and comes with a few extra gadgets to play with in the shape of Altimeter, Barometer and Thermometer functions. The actual strap in a green "khaki" material which gives the watch a nice military feel. The watch is also easy to see in complete darkness due to the "illuminator" backlight.

All in all I'm really pleased with the watch and it's functions but if you are really after a watch with a super-accurate Altimeter function you may be better checking out the much more expensive Sunnto line as it's well known that the Protrek Altimeter "Tech" lags behind the market leader(s).

BG's Rating : For an inexpensive introduction to the world of Multi Function watches this piece of kit is hard to beat ***** from a possible ***** (10/10)

Ravel : Ladies Digital LCD Sports Watch - Multi Functional 3ATM (Round Pink)

Bought this watch for my wife as she needed an everyday "beater" to save her more expensive watch from being damaged in the lab.

I received the watch in good time and was pleasantly surprised with how well built it seems to be. It took me a few attempts to correct the various settings but it wasn't that dificult.

When I purchased this watch it was selling for £6.49 which represents great value as it looks good and is built as well as other more expensive watches that I've bought in the past.

BG's Rating: 3.5/5 (rounded up to 4 for Amazon)
