It has a nice mix of classical, blues, and Latin music. my first introduction to Cachao (Isreal Lopez). Thankfully I was able to know his music further with the album Ahora Si

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent upbeat music, Sept. 24 2014
He is one of my most favorite Latin artists of all time, along with the Gipsy Kings, Cachao, Pancho Sanchez and Mongo Santamaria. I can't imagine life without ever hearing his music

I have seen it before but just had to own it! They are witty, cranky, sophisticated, lovable, and I can't imagine now knowing of them! British comedy at its best!

3.0 out of 5 stars an easy read. Having read other books on the Holocaust, June 25 2014

This review is from: Sarah's Key (Paperback)
It was okay, at first it was going quickly and smoothly, an easy read. Having read other books on the Holocaust, they have "brought me into" that time period. She did not draw anything out too long. but by mid way, I felt that she hadn't put enough detail into it. Being a shorter book, it was wrapped up quite quickly, and she ended up emphasizing more so on the one woman's relationship more than the life of the other, which I found to be sad,didn't really feel as if there was close
I guess I am used to books of epic proportion such as Barbara Wood, Wilbur Smith, John Jakes and Ken Follet who put a lot of detail into their books, and just finished Wally Lambs 896 page book. Gone to Soldiers by Marge Percy was a little intense too

5.0 out of 5 stars Very bright and noticable, great for more than shipping labels, June 10 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I actually use them for different things to stand out instead of mailing labels. I use them on front of my workshop material folder and also when I make my cat toys, I put my name and website and such on the label and put around the dowel.
It is also a great price, it really is full price that is listed in a retail store

3.0 out of 5 stars these folders are great for my workshops, it holds a few pages, not necessarily 100 but holds my business card nicely, June 10 2014

and I also put a neon label on the front and it sticks to it nicely (If people are going to reuse the folder, my name might as well be on it)
But the color of this is like an aqua blue, something like the waters in the Caribbean, but the color that arrived today was a darker shade of blue. I had wanted to go bright colors for my workshop, purchasing a nice shade of yellow last time (preferable to mustard yellow that I got at Staples).
The box that I got today was more along the color of ASIN: B00006IEUJ which is $2 cheaper. I purchased this particular one liking the color much better, preferring bright over dull colors.
The quality is still the same comparable I am sure, just a bit disappointed that it was not the color I was looking for

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this group, they are my top two artists, the other being Tito Puente, June 7 2014
This review is from: Estrellas (Audio CD)
Their songs are a mixture of relaxing, soulful, some fast, some only music, no vocals. I have many of their CD's and can't imagine life without them

3.0 out of 5 stars I had this on my wish list, May 6 2014
until I read that it has background music. I like relaxing to natural nature sounds, and play the CD's all the time, but even with them I will not purchase if it has background music. I want full water, birds, whales, etc. sounds

I purchased some yellow ones that were not as good quality or nice color (they were mustard color). I will be using them for my upcoming workshop material, and they will hold the pages nicely
