Barry Manilow

From one "Barry Manilow" to another this time he dips into his "Jazzy" side and does a great job and may surprise many people !!....Thanks once again to "Belguim Bob"!!!....No information on the back sleeve about who wrote the songs...They are all original no standards so I assume that "Barry" has written them !!

5. You're Driving Me Crazy

1. On A Clear Day

The Worlds Worst Record Show

It say's on the cover "Cringe Along" I'll endorse that with a capital "CRINGE"....never heard of any of the tracks !!...The originals yes !!...It's from over the channel via Bob...glad to see "Belguim" has a sense of humour !!....Its well worth a download just for a hearty laugh !!!....Must have hit "Bob's" funny bone when I posted "Mrs Miller" L/P she is featured on one of the tracks !!



 

Bobby Goldsboro

Thanks to "Bob"who supplied this one I now know "Bobby Goldsboro" has a great and distintive voice...Only hearing him singing his Hit "Summer The First Time" I didn't realise how good he is !!...even tho' these versions are not far removed from the originals his voice makes the difference and you can apreciate them as well as the originals !!



 

The Love Album VA...320 Kbps

We now have a compilation L/P supplied by"Lesley" from the "Gym" which contains well known tracks and some that are not so well known....That seems a popular inclusion with most of the "Concept" Compilation L/P's filling it out with lesser well known tracks....which of course doesn't mean its a bad idea...just a good marketing ploy !!!...and sometimes you get a great standout track !!
