One for the French viewers !!...seems that I have been hit 3,458 times by France ! thanks for that....this also came via "Belgium" from "Bob".....



 

Tom Jones...320 Kbps

"Tom Jones" circa 1969 !!.....Sorry for the jumps tried to get rid of them but no luck...this one was supplied by "Geoff"...I recon those knitting needles were working overtime on this one !!!..as with most of the "Live" L/P's there are no gaps in between the tracks so you have "Side One" & "Side Two"

Des O'Connor...320 Kbps


This was a complete surprise when I first heard it !..I think it equals some of the original recordings !....its no secret that in England the other comedians used to take the p**s out of Des's singing because he did start out as a comedian and made his name as a stand up comic before he started recording so he was a prime target for the other comedians !!...as I said before he has had some top hits....So if you also want a nice surprise give this one a listen I'm sure that you wont be disappointed...once again thanks to "Bob" for this one and there are more by Des to come so here's hoping they are as good as this one !!!
