“Thank you for the Vintage iPod Nano, which I received yesterday. I am really happy with this device and it exceeds my expectations. It is easy to use and the sound of these oldies is superb. It is a really good idea to sell a pre-loaded device like this. It saves the user a lot of time and enables the listener to explore music back to the 20’s. I would never have bought so many CD’s from that period due to the risk of poor music quality. But to have 3 decades of mostly jazz music stored on one device was well worth taking that risk. I am completely satisfied with the result. Hopefully, you will soon expand your jazz music range into 50’s and 60’s.” S Wirtz

COVER NOTES

Now Past Perfect has had the brilliant idea of putting its entire back catalogue of lovingly compiled albums on to an iPod Nano. There are more than 1,376 tracks ranging from Billie Holiday to the Andrews Sisters, Count Basie to Cole Porter, Fats Waller to Beniamino Gigli. And while I reckon it would cost about £600 to buy the entire back catalogue on CD the fully loaded iPod is available for just £299.97.  Reluctant to rush into print after my previous experience, I’ve been vigorously road-testing the Past Perfect iPod for the past two months. It hasn’t jammed once, recharges like a dream, and even tells you the time. Technology has moved on since my last iPod experience – the Nano is smaller than a credit card and not much thicker and you get reproductions of Past Perfect’s stylish album covers on the full-colour screen, so you can leaf through the virtual records and pick out the one you want to play just as if it were a real LP. Indeed the neatness and ingenuity of the tiny machine is a pleasure in its own right.   The sound quality is apparently significantly better than you will get by downloading the songs at iTunes. The default quality for encoding is 128kbps while Past Perfect offers 224kbps. The lovely Kathy also sent me two pages of absolutely idiot-proof instructions and I’m sure she’ll do the same for you if you ask her nicely.  Time speeds by as you sample the portable delights on offer. You could start for instance with Noël Coward and Gertie Lawrence in Private Lives (strange how potent clipped accents are), move on to some classic swing and bebop and end your session with a blast of George Formby whose cheeky inanity never fails to cheer me up.   ……. for those who feel daunted by technology, this preloaded iPod is a thing of beauty, wonder and unexpected simplicity, packed with music that is truly olden but golden.

  1. Mr Davidson, Scotland

    I couldn’t believe how fabulous it was until I received it – it’s brilliant! As a technophobe I quickly picked up how to use the iPod and in no time I was discovering artists I never knew I’d like. It’s a pleasure to deal with a company that’s so enthusiastic and efficient.
