Merry Xmas !!

Hi Everybody.....Here's Wishing You All "A Very Merry Xmas Day".....Luigi.....

Dr Hook.320 Kbps

Ok folks this is the last "Upload" before I wish everybody "A Happy Xmas Day"
this group is my Sister Rina's favourite group..and I agree with her...all the songs I believe are written by the group so they are all original "Covers".....and they are all good ones and easy to remember...that I believe if you can remember the words and tune constitutes a "HIT"!!!!!

1. More Like The Movies
2. A Little Bit More
3. The Radio
4. Up On The Mountain
5. If Not You

1. Jungle To The Zoo
2. Bad Eye Bill
3. What About You
4. I Need the High
5. A Couple More Years 


Neil Diamond.320 Kbps

This was a new "Neil Diamond" to me !!...even tho' it was recorded in 1978...must have been asleep all that year !!!....The track of "You Don't Bring me Flowers" with "Barbra" has the "Myth" of a DJ in America joining the two individual tracks as one and playing it on his show "CBS" liked the idea and did it themselves and issued it as a single !!!!....NOW whether or not that is true who know's !!!!..Strange how these things get about !!! the "Urban Myths"of different subjects and countries !!!..Great Track Of "The Dancing Bumble Bee/Bumble Boogie!

1. The American Popular Song
2. Forever In Blue Jeans
3.  Remember Me
4. You've Got Your Troubles
5. You Don't Bring Me Flowers with..Barbra Streisand

1. The Dancing Bumble Bee / Bumble Boogie
2. Mothers And Daughters Fathers And Sons

4. Say Maybe
5. Diamond Girls


Caterina Valente.320 Kbps

 This little lady is one of my favorite singers the other one being Ella...I would have loved to see her live but didn't quite manage it...She was due to give a concert in one of Leicester's concert halls but the date clashed with a TV performance so she cancelled she has retired from singing and is taking it easy in Switzerland (I think).....The album is a bit on the scratchy side and the last track the stylus got stuck so it jumps...but what do you expect its about 53 years old and has been played thousands of time...But these "Polydor" pressings do seem to last forever I got it when I was in the army in Bahrain....the place I got it from was called "The Cold Store"so maybe it started out its life frozen and just beging to thaw out!!! Seriously I have quite a few Polydor L/P's and they are wearing very well considering how old they are..

P.S. Although this is a re-recording did'nt manage to get rid of the jump on the last track
"Le Grisbi"

1. Granada
2. There But For The Grace Of God
3. Siboney
4. I Love Paris

1. Look Into My Eyes
2. Similau
3. This Ecstacy
4. Le Grisbi 

Pia Beck

Last one from "Bob".....and a great one too !! to me and getting better every time Bob sends me a download of hers !!...anybody who likes something different will miss out  if they don't have a listen !!.....I Just Love "I Left My Heart In San Fransico" !! have a listen to that track here...

Nana Mouskouri

A good cross selection of the work of "Nana" from a Double L/P selection...If you like Nana then this is a good "Ear Shot"of her "Voice" !!!!


Jim Reeves

Staying with "Bob" for a couple more !!..

Bing Crosby.

One from across the channel now from "Bob"...there is some info on the back but does not refer to this the sound of the orchestra and arrangments would have a guess at the late70's early 80's...does anybody know any different ??

Tom Jones.320 Kbps

Its 1966 and Mr Tom Jones have been to America Met "Elvis"done all the Major American TV programs and this is his second L/P....All tracks are original not a hit or a standard in sight !! with the exception of "More" which seems to me out of place !!...Plenty of info on the back cover !!
It shows just how "Tom" earned the Title of the L/P ATOMIC !!!.

1. Dr Love
2. Face Of A Loser
3. It's Been a Long Time Coming
4. Ia a Woman's Eye
5. More

Marlene Dietrich..320 Kbps


Here's a little would need new ears if you thought that Marlene was a good singer but it's the "presence" that comes over....some will love it or some will hate it just like "Marmite" !!....It is a live performance and on the back sleeve it mentions a London live appearance in whether this is from that who knows...but by the quality of the recordings I think maybe it is made up of several of her live performances !!

Danny Willians..320 Kbps


 It's a pity that "Danny Williams" did not have more success than he did....After his version of "Moon River" which was a hit in England but I think it was overshadowed in the rest of the world by the "Andy Williams" version... then he went on and made this L/P which is a good one and a couple of singles.Maybe it was because he sounded a bit like "Johnny Mathis"...Best Tracks for me is "No Love No Nothing" & "With These Hands"
