Tom Jones...320 Kbps

Erasure...320 Kbps

Here's what you call a 12 inch single !!..even tho' there's two tracks on the "B" Side !!....still can't my head around the repetive nature of these tracks and they all seem the same to me !!!....BUT no doubt there are many many many folks who enjoy this !!!!!....As I have said before it great that we all don't have the same taste in music !!..wouldn't that be a bore !!!

1. Sometimes

1. Sexuality
2. Say What


Sue & Sunny...320. Kbps

Re-Post
 I like this one it's a bit on the quirky side doesn't really come into any category but the voices are cool....If you remember "Joe Cocker's" "With A Little Help From My Friends" they are the backing vocalists....whoever designed the cover should have had his or her glasses on because the reverse side of the L/P is black and silver and you can't read anything that's why I've not bothered to scan it because all you would see would be a black 12 inch Blob!!!!!
Best track is definitely "You Devil Cotton Eyed Joe"


1. Let Us Break Bread Together
2. Follow The Path
3. People Get Ready
4. You Devil Cotton Eyed Joe
5. Don't You Know I Love You
6. Little Green Apples

1. Michael From Mountains

3. After St Francis
4. The Love We Never Knew
5. Put Your Tears Away
6. River Deep Mountain High

Dirty Dancing (Film)...320 Kbps

Another soundtrack with songs that are played in the background of the film so you don't realy notice them till you see the back cover of the L/P and then you have to watch it again to get the feel and mood !!!...and of course it has that classic track "Time Of My Life" and the "Nobody should put "Baby" in the corner " line !!!

1. I've had The Time Of My Life
2. Be My Baby

Top Of The Pops 30...320 Kbps

This is the first time I have played and listened to these "Budget" L/P's... seen them for years but didn't take much notice of them I prefered to get and listen to the original tracks !!..BUT now I can see why a lot of people did buy them...some of the tracks (not all of them)!! if you didn't know that they were not sung by the "Original" singers you would think that they were !!...The quality of the recordings are 100% spot on....Proves a point that "You can't judge a book (L/P.Sleeve) by the cover !!!.... I wonder why they do or did not credit the singers ??? Have a listen and see if you 
agree !!!!
