Dusty Springfield...320 Kbps


The first side of this L/P is the up tempo tracks and the second side is the ballad side...excellent album from Dusty when she made this L/P she was well and truly established as one of Englands finest singers !!...her version of "This Girls In Love With You" is second to none !!..and she even has a cool "Swinging Track " as well...

P.S. The back side of the L/P as you can see is one hell of an "Orange" Zest !! I have scanned Dusty's comments in Black & does make better reading you don't have to strain your eyes !!

Pal Joey.Film...320 Kbps


Sorry for all the scatches snaps crackles and pops on this L/P..Its one of a few I lent out years ago and they were returned like it...even the covers were ripped had to get the above from "google" but couldn't find the back....That was a lesson I learned not to lend out L/P's !!
It is of course the soundtrack from the film complete with all the orchestration tracks
Sinatra sings on 6 tracks Kim Novac on 2 and Rita Hayworth on 2....Its a good memory of a classic film !!
P.S. Did find the back but not a very good one !!

Dorothy Collins...320 Kbps

We are still in "Belgium" with Bob and this L/P is a singer that I had not heard of so once again thanks Bob for introducing me to a very different voice...I like it and she does a great job with a bunch of great standard songs...pity she didn't do more L/P's....or maybe she has !! I'll leave that one open for information !!!....So if you are like me and never heard of her give it a download I'm sure you won't be disappointed !!

Des O'Connor...320 Kbps

Here's another one from Bob from "Belgium" featuring the English comedian/singer that most of the other English comedians used to take the P##s (micky) out of his singing....But he does do a competent job with the songs nothing spectacular but pleasant !!

Pearl Bailey....320 Kbps

 Things that record company's do to sell their's one that had a go by putting provocative signs on the cover...note "Restricted From Air Play" of release 1966 would have thought by then the "Victorian Era" had gone!!!....Back to the contents of the L/P it is songs that Pearl was singing in her nightclub act nothing "Smutty" or swearing just Pearl Bailey being herself...Track one is the suspect one the rest are just normal songs....

1. She Had To Go And Lose It At The Astor
2. Josephine

4. I Want A Man 
5. Let's Do It
