Dick Van Dyke

We are still in "Belguim" with "Bob" for this one....I would have thought that the orchestrations would have more "Ooomf" being that it's the "Enoch Light  Orch" and recorded by "Command" Records...BUT it's a pleasant easy listen !!




 

Des O'Connor

On this L/P Des talks as well as sings....he does what a lot of singers were doing in the 70's joining two songs together with same themes...and even tho' there is nothing on the sleeve to tell you the date all you have to do is look at the "Flares" that Des is wearing and "Bingo" the 70's !!!!...This one came from "Bob" !!

Now this one might someday become a rare one !!....Story is my parents in the 70's had a holiday in "St Lucia"and came back with this souvenir...Don't think it's been played very often twice to my knowledge !!...It was produced by the "Hotel Halcyon" where they stayed
I had a check on "Google"but it is now not there... either pulled down or completely refurbished and a name change....The tracks are by musicians and vocalists that performed there...Maybe somebody out there also had a holiday and stayed at the Hotel if so you can always leave a comment !!....overall its a pleasant L/P.... pleasant listening !!!!
