Your Own Thing....320 Kbps

Here's another show that I know nothing about....Its says on the back sleeve that it was an Off Broadway Musical...but it seems to have played at the "Comedy Theatre" in London in about 1968 or thereabouts....Its the original New York Cast and there is some fine singers in it....there is not as far as I know any well known songs from it....but I think its a case of "You have to see it " to apreciate it to the full....be great if someone who has seen it could make a comment about it and fill in all the empty spaces !!!!

If any of you out there are not familiar with "Keely's" work and sound then this is the one you should listen to...all the track are swingers she even manages to swing"Stardust"and you wont believe what she does to "Indian Love Call".....This along with "The Beatles Songbook"I reckon are the best she has recorded...BUT don't take my word for it give it a download....Can't say which is the best track because they are al A1 first class !!

A different and subdued collection of songs sung by Petula...No songs or any arranged or produced by "Tony Hatch"on this L/P six of the songs where written by Petula...It is a "CBS" release...the sound is typically the sound of the 70's...best track is "I'm Not In Love"....Pet having a go at "Disco" and doing a great job !!

Here is a compilation of Shirley's taken from some of her L/P's from 1959 to 1966 before she had trouble with her tonsils and had to have them removed....That made a slight difference to her voice not that you could notice....the power and tone and clarity was still there as they still are today after 50 odd years of belting the songs out !!!

Al Martino...320 Kbps

Re-Post Requested By Vistef

Everyone who likes music from the 50's and 60's should be aware of "Frank Sinatra's" L/P
"Songs For Swinging Lovers" which is just about the best Sinatra made....This one comes a close second to it !!!...having said that I don't think anyone will ever beat "SFSL"....I've always liked Al Martino and he has recorded some good "pop" singles at the start of his singing career in the 50's who could forget "Here In My Heart"which incidentally was the first No 1 record when the UK started there "Top Charts"...then there was "Rachael"..."Story Of Tina" Ect...best track on this L/P is "Summertime"....different !!
P.S. I've said it once before and I'll say it again the "Arrangement's & Orchestrations can make a hell of a difference in the making of a excellent L/P or CD.... and this Orchestra that is backing Al Martino is first class....must say I have never heard of "Stanley Applebaum

Kean....320 Kbps

Don't know much about this L/P....so if anybody out there would like to tell us more about it then be my guest and leave a comment.....It is one of the few L/P's that I got from a friend who was getting rid of them....This is only the second time I have played it....To me it has no immediate "Hit" songs that usually come out of a "Musical" Show....This one is the original "Broadway Cast"....Sooooo you folks over the pond will perhaps be more familar with it ....it does say on the inside sleeve that it opened at "The Broadway Theatre" in New York on November 2nd 1961......
