Tammy Wynette

Another "Best Of" this time CW Singer...also supplied by "Bob"....If you like CW then you will like this all of her hits !!



 

Werner Muller & Orchestra

The title of this L/P says it all and I agree wholehearted !!!...courtesey of "Bob"




Liza Minnelli....320 Kbps

Re-Post Requested By Hit Parade
 Liza sings mostly standards on this L/P but the arrangements and style are typically 70's style...this was recorded in 1970 just before she got the part of "Sally Bowles" in the Musical Film"Cabaret"....the songs are by "Kern" "Berlin" "Porter" "Arlen" "Mercer" "Gershwin" so you can see that its the American Songbook Theme.....They are definitely sung different....She does go a bit "frantic"at times but its definitely one of her better recordings !!
Found the video below.....on a couple of plays it went out of sync but seems okay now !!

P.S. I love it when you get a selection of well known songs and they are arranged and performed entirely different from the originals and like nobody else's versions..and Liza and her arranger has just done that !!...Greaaaaaaaat !!!

1. Love For Sale
2. Stormy Weather
3. Come Rain Or Come Shine
4. Lazy Bones
5. Can't Help Loving That Man

1. I Wonder Where My Easy Rider's Gone 
2. The Man I Love
3. How Long Has This Been Going On
4. God Bless The Child
5. Maybe This Time

Liza Minnelli on "The Johnny Cash Show"

Anthony Ventura & Orch

Still keeping over the channel in "Belgium" with "Bob" we have an orchestra playing a selection of well know tunes !! at least I know some of them !!



 

Angels & 15 Original TV Themes

A nice compilation from "Bob" featuring BBC's Themes which I guess will be very familar to nearly every one who watches Television from the bygone days of Black and White and NO remote!! you had to get up off your a**e walk over to the T/V and either press a button or turn a knob !!!....Ah those were the days !!

Karel Gott...320 Kbps

Still keeping with "Bob" from across the channel..this singer I also have not heard of before and the more I heard this one the more I liked it...I do play the L/P's two or three times before I post them and this one definatly comes into the "More You Hear It The Better It Becomes" !!!...So if you also are not familar with his work give it a try and see if you agree !!!

 When I got these "Show" L/P's from a friend I must have missed playing this one because I can't remember being as inpressed with it as I am now...Its a great one... typical "West End" show material...must say that its been on my turntable many many times since I recorded it for this blog...If it was still running I would have made an effort to go and see it...BUT it is from 1964...so its a bit late!!...none of the songs as far as I know were hits as usualy you find that there is usualy one song that makes it popular....I might be wrong so if anyone knows different please enlighten me...all I can say is the whole score is good and worth listening to !!
