Des O'Connor...320 Kbps

So now we have a "Golden Hour " of Des's voice also from "Bob"....It's fine and as the saying goes "It Does What It Say's On The Tin".....any of you out there who don't get that Can't watch much Television !!!!




Barry Manilow

Still keeping in the "Bob" mode we have a slightly different "BM" giving his "Swing" tonsils a good airing !!...seems that he giving his singing voice a few style changes which is great for the listener...you can only listen to a certain amount of "Big Power Ballads"before you put the ear-plugs in !!!...Barry does a great job with these tracks and his voice is spot on !!!

 

Bing Crosby

Another one from "Bob"..naturally a "Belgium" release because as you know that's where "Bob" comes from !!!...this L/P features "Bing's" original tracks no re-recording this time and you have a "Bonus" of "The Andrew Sisters" popping up now and then !!!....great nostalgic music that will never fade !!!

Barbra Streisand...320 Kbps

Re-Post
 This is one of the best of Barbra's early recordings...she has now got control of her voice on the high notes that she usually blasts out...and she sounds much sweeter....she is now the singer on this L/P that we all know now....Saying that I still reckon that her 1 st and 2 nd L/P's take some beating...my opinion of course...if you disagree leave a comment !!

P.S. Gather round you "Audiophile's" here's "Barbra" In "Stereo" !!!!!!!

Barry And Eileen

Here's one from "Bob"of a "Belgium" Duo who I have not heard of before...The songs seem to be all original ones co-written by a certain "B Corbett" could it be "Barry"??...also his voice reminds me of someone I can't quite put my finger on !!..any suggestions !!!...as you can see by the back cover not much information about this competent Duo....very pleasant listening !!




Dorothy Squires...320 Kbps

 Dorothy Squires has got quite a distictive voice and on this L/P as the title say's she is singing her own songs that she has wrote....maybe some of you out there in the 'cosmos' have probably never heard of her so maybe a little info will help....her voice is deep... so if I said that it is the very oposite of the voice of "Blossom Dearie"maybe you will get an idea of it !!...seems that she wrote the lyrics and composed the tunes of most of the tracks on this L/P...there is a sameness about the songs but they are good....and of course she was married to "James Bond" and "The Saint" (AKA) "Roger Moore" at some point !!
