Engelbert Humperdinck...320 Kbps

I think maybe this might be the first L/P of "Engelbert's"circa 1969....just a couple of songs that people may have heard of the rest of the songs I presume would be the stock songs to fill out a "Debut " L/P !!!...Unless someone out there knows any different !!..........He comes from my home town "Leicester"

Robert Goulet...320 Kbps

Re- Post
 I'm getting used to RG's voice but he still lacks that knockout track that I am waiting to hear....To me he still has that "Musical Show" type of voice and seems to sing every track in that style....I do have a few more L/P's by him maybe soon he might deliver that track with a "Wow" factor....I wonder if these are realy his "Greatest Hits" or are CBS just gathering random tracks.....

Re-Post Requested By Anonymous

Here is the second volume of "Irving Berlin"....

Dave Mason And Cass Eliot...320 Kbps


 When I saw this L/P in a Junk Shop I thought I may as well get it it only cost about 50p....I was disappointed tho' "Cass" only sings one song on her own and the rest of the tracks I assume that she is singing with Dave Mason who incidentally I hadn't heard of !!.....Isn't it strange that it is only when "Cass Elliot" sings on her own that you get that rich unique sounding voice...when she was with "The Mama's And The Papa's" and on this L/P her voice seems to blend in and lose that uniqueness....The L/P as a whole is a run of the mill production nothing exiting is happening which is a pity because there is not much of  "Cass Elliot's" recordings available !!!
And Isn't that a great picture of "Cass"!!!!!

Love Unlimited Orchestra...320 Kbps

I just love the sound of this orchestra...BUT !....I feel that some of the tracks are a little to long and some are very repetitive in fact I thought that my stylus had stuck in a couple of places !!...apart from that as I said its a good one....would have been nice to hear "Barry's" voice either at the begining or end of the tracks...that would have liffted the whole L/P up !!!!!!!

1. My Sweet Summer Suite
2. Strange Games And Things
3. Blues Concerto
4. You I Adore

1. Brazilian Love Song
2. Are You Sure
3. You've Given Me Something

Once again the record company has produced a compilation of "Tom's" Greatest Hits ??(Dubious)....True they have included most of them but amongst the tracks are some cover versions of popular songs that were hits for other people and some that might be "B"sides to his Hits so I suppose they could be classed as hits because they were "The Other Side" !!.....why oh why do record companies do that !!...I'm sure that Tom could have filled this double L/P with all of his hits !!....He's had plenty to choose from during his recording time !!
