Anthony Ventura Orchestra...320 Kbps

Another one from across the channel courtesy of "Bob".....some more great tunes  for the middle of the road people !!

Carly Simon...320 Kbps

This is one of Carly's early recordings in fact I think it might be her first L/P...I like Carly's voice and the tracks are all original songs presumably written by her....Unfortunately this came to me with no sleeve so there is no information and it is a Japanese release and on the Label there is no reference who has written the songs....Maybe someone out there can fill in the gaps!!! song to me is "The Girl That You Think You Are"

Judy Garland...320 Kbps

Here's Judy singing her heart out in one of the best of the "Garland "Films including one of the finest songs from it...and the video of it is below !!.....I can't believe that when the film was first released they cut out the "Born In A Trunk"...thank goodness that they put it back as that also is a great part of the film !!

1. Gotta Have Me Go With You
2. Born In A Trunk

1. Here's What I'm Here For

Helen Merrill...320 Kbps

 This one I got in a junk shop for 50p...I was intrigued by the song selection and hadn't heard any songs by Helen Merrill...It is a "Mainstream Recording" and they usually release "Jazz" releases.I had heard of "Charlie Byrd" he is a Jazz guitarist...soooooo I thought that for 50p you cant go wrong....Yep It was worth every penny and more!!!....I supose you could call it "Folksy Jazz"....I expected it to be a big band bash but was pleasantly surprised sooooooo all you out there over the pond and in the freezing snow have a listen and see what you think!!!

P.S. For any of you out there who might be hesitating in giving this one a listen too DO IT...
