Wow!! this one took me by surprise !!....first track I thought ok  run of the mill track then "Yellow Bird" started got my interest fully after that it took off and it's a great L/P !!
It is well worth a listen to....and it endorses my thoughts about being able to hear tracks that otherwise you would never hear.....Thanks "Bob"!!!!!

The Bee Gees....320 Kbps

This Compilation is a double L/P the first 12 songs are from the early recordings of  "The Bee Gees" the other 12 are mostly their hits....The L/P's were released by "TellyDisc in 1985 so I assume that it was more than likely a promotion for when they were appearing in some T/V show !!.....But it's good because it shows how much they have changed musically from there early days !!....There is no information at all the sleeve even when you open it up you still have the image of the two people looking "Love Sick"!!!!!......I wonder who designs these covers !!!

Johnny Mathis..320 Kbps

Re-Post Requested By Hit Parade




Another great L/P from Johnny recorded early 70's.....I think that as he got older his voice and vocal style became more suited to the up tempo songs.....haven't heard him live for quite some time so I don't know if his voice has changed...will have to go onto "YouTube" and see what there is there...in the meantime have a listen its a good one !!

P.S. I think the reason its a good one is the choices of songs are good and the arrangments are first class...and he puts his own interpretations  on the songs in the "Mathis" Style.... not copying the originals which is great !!

1. Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me
2. We're All Alone
3. All The Things You Are
4. One
5. When I Need You
6. Sweet Surrender

1. The Most Beautiful Girl
2. Tomorrow
3. Evergreen
4. I Always Knew I Had It In Me
5. Don't Give Up On Us
