Des O'Connor...320 Kbps

So now we have a "Golden Hour " of Des's voice also from "Bob"....It's fine and as the saying goes "It Does What It Say's On The Tin".....any of you out there who don't get that Can't watch much Television !!!!

Barry Manilow

Still keeping in the "Bob" mode we have a slightly different "BM" giving his "Swing" tonsils a good airing !!...seems that he giving his singing voice a few style changes which is great for the can only listen to a certain amount of "Big Power Ballads"before you put the ear-plugs in !!!...Barry does a great job with these tracks and his voice is spot on !!!


Bing Crosby

Another one from "Bob"..naturally a "Belgium" release because as you know that's where "Bob" comes from !!!...this L/P features "Bing's" original tracks no re-recording this time and you have a "Bonus" of "The Andrew Sisters" popping up now and then !!!....great nostalgic music that will never fade !!!

Carmen Jones WRC...320 Kbps

 This L/P is not from the "Soundtrack" or from the "Original Show" but just a record company's version...if you have seen the film or the show then this is definatly a good effort well worth the "Download" if you are not bothered about the "Originals" !!

3. You Talk Just Like My Maw....George Webb & Ena Babb
4. Dat's Love....Grace Bumbry & Chorus

Barbra Streisand...320 Kbps

 This is one of the best of Barbra's early recordings...she has now got control of her voice on the high notes that she usually blasts out...and she sounds much sweeter....she is now the singer on this L/P that we all know now....Saying that I still reckon that her 1 st and 2 nd L/P's take some opinion of course...if you disagree leave a comment !!

1. My Funny Valentine
2. The Nearness Of You

Barry And Eileen

Here's one from "Bob"of a "Belgium" Duo who I have not heard of before...The songs seem to be all original ones co-written by a certain "B Corbett" could it be "Barry"??...also his voice reminds me of someone I can't quite put my finger on !!..any suggestions !!! you can see by the back cover not much information about this competent Duo....very pleasant listening !!

Dorothy Squires...320 Kbps

 Dorothy Squires has got quite a distictive voice and on this L/P as the title say's she is singing her own songs that she has wrote....maybe some of you out there in the 'cosmos' have probably never heard of her so maybe a little info will help....her voice is deep... so if I said that it is the very oposite of the voice of "Blossom Dearie"maybe you will get an idea of it !!...seems that she wrote the lyrics and composed the tunes of most of the tracks on this L/P...there is a sameness about the songs but they are good....and of course she was married to "James Bond" and "The Saint" (AKA) "Roger Moore" at some point !!

1. Look Around
2. With all My Heart
3. Tammy Tell Me True

Flambards...320 Kbps


 This is the music from a late 70's Television Series....Even if you haven't seen the Series the music stands on its own.... The tracks are catchy and beautiful and there's a whistle tune that if you download it you will be whistling all day !!!.....If any of you out there get a chance to see this great T/V Series or get the DVD (which I have) then go for it you wont be disappointed....

P.S. This is definatly one of the best "Mood Music" that I have in my collection and I hope that most of you out there will have a listen and give an opinion!! I said above the music stands on its own so you don't realy have to see the "Series" to appreciate it...BUT it does help !!!

Ethel Merman

Obviously this is not from the soundtrack of the film!!...If it was your thoughts would be "Where the hell is "Donald O'Conner & Vera Ellen" !!!..It is in fact a more detailed song list from the "Show/Film"with the original "Hostess With The Mostest"!!!!!!


Music Of Torvill And Dean...320 Kbps

Some "Mood Music" now part of my "Xmas" Hoard !!!....Only hearing these for the first time when I am recording them my comments are probably not very critical so its up to all you out there in "Cyberland" and the "Cosmos" to have a go !!!!

2. Capriccio Espagnol

1. Barnum on Ice
2. Discoskate

Joe Longthorne...320 Kbps

When I first came across this L/P that was supplied to me at Xmas I was hoping that it would be a knockout one !...Because as you can see from the Video below "Joe" is a great impressionist and funny with it to !!...he does a great job on all the tracks but nothing to me stands out as a "WoW" track.....saying that its still a good set of songs sung perfectly....The track "To All The Girls"seems to be a bit faulty in the pressing so it does skip and jump a bit couldn't see any scratch or marks on the track so that the assumption !!

Herb Alpert And The Tijuana Brass...320.Kbps

Re-Post Requested By Anonymous
 Earlier on I downloaded a "Peter Nero" L/P of "Herb Alpert" hits and said "If you didn't know it wasn't "Herb Alpert" you wouldn't know or words to that effect !!!...Anyway here is the man himself with 16 of his well known hits...they are all there !!...Bit of music trivia coming up...His first hit "Lonely Bull" was supposed to have been recorded in a garage on an old Tape recorder deck no studio equipment !!...whether or not that is true who knows...but I recon that they must have cleaned it up in the studio and that little man that fiddles with the knobs and sliders did his thing !!!...

P.S. Seems that we have had another ride on that "DeLorean"...from the 40's to the 70's with this one !!!
