Mireille Mathieu...320 Kbps


This one is as you may have guessed from "Bob" in Belgium...Someone earlier ("Lacy" from across the pond)!!! did suggest that that maybe I should include a SUB file for all the foreign language L/P's....What a cool Idea !!!....But I believe that sometimes the translations do go a bit haywire... when you do find a translation to a song ! they tend to be different even the subject matter can change...So its best to just listen to the melody and the voice !!

Here's one for all the French talking people out there !! courtesy of Bob from your side of the channel !!......A very pleasant set of songs I didn't recognise any of the songs so I guess that they are all French compositions....But I always think that if the melody and the singer is good it doesn't matter about the language !!

June Christy....320 Kbps

Re-Post Requested by TKL From Finland


If anybody out there  in the wide wide world has not heard of "June Christy" then when and if they decide to download this L/P they will get a pleasant surprise...June belongs to group of great Jazz singers that has never had what we call a hit record but is a great singer and has made quite a few L/P's....other singers like "Chris Conner" "Carmen McRae" "Anita O'Day""Dakota Staton" "Ethel Ennis"and loads more are in the same category....good competent singers in there own right...Its a pity that the singers of today can't match up to any of them !!....I only know of one that would fit the bill and that is a great Scottish Singer called "Carol Kidd" she is definatly worth a listen to !!

1. Rock Me To Sleep
2. Gypsy In My Soul
3. I'm Glad There Is You
4. They Can't Take That Away From Me
5. It Don't Mean A Thing
