Helmut Zacharias & Orchestra...320 Kbps



This I think is the best one I have heard from "Helmut"....maybe its because of the slightly big band sound that he has got on it...definitely not a "Sweeping Strings" session !!!




Cissy Houston....320 Kbps

Now here we have a great singer that was very underestimated in her day...she has two claims to fame first one being that she has made hundreds of hit records as one of the best "Session Singers" since she started singing...she has sung with everybody and if you go onto "Wikipedia"and have a look it will surprise you !!.....The other claim to fame is the best one she is of course the Mother of "Whitney Houston"!!!....so you can now see where "Whitney" gets her voice from !!....This L/P stands out and she should have definitely made more....So if you want to hear a great voice have a listen !!....Her recording of "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" Equals the version of "Dusty's.....That how good she is !!!

1. I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself
2. Didn't We
3. I'll Be There
4. Any Guy
5. When Something Is Wrong With My Baby

1. Be My Baby
2. This Empty Place

The Jock Strapp Ensemble...320 Kbps

This "Gem" by courtesy of one of my "Gym Bunnies" can't say which one because I don't want to be "Splashed" and "Ducked" in the pool next time !!.......Wish they hadn't "Bleeped" so much on the record can't see any date on it so I assume that it is from the late 50's-60's...I think that if it was recorded these days there would be no "Bleeps"!!!!!.....Its a bit of fun and a novelty so don't expect to much !!!

Video Caterina Valente !

Hi Folks....Just found this great video on YouTube...I realise that the quality is not first class but the content is fantastic...Just shows how a great performer "Caterina" is...not only with that great voice but she can dance great and a great surprise on the end with "Ella Caterina & Perry Como" doing a "Scat" version of "Avalon".....a really cool video glad I found it.....It does run for 35mins which is about the longest video on here !!!

Perry Como and Caterina Valente 1961-1966
