Robert Young

Another one from across the Channel now...first time I have heard this Voice which is strange because although he is now not with us he was popular in the 70's and once again I must have been asleep !!....his voice has been compared to most of the big tenors over the years....Like "Mario Lanza" which I believe sometimes he does sound like him..."Bob" has sent me a couple more so I will be posting them as well .....so have a listen and comments would be cool !!





 

Paul Anka.

Paul Anka singing his Hit song "My Way" which he wrote the lyrics and other not so well known songs... All of them are written by him  either on his own or with collaborators... he now has a mature voice which comes through even though the picture on the front seems to be from his teenage years !!....Thanks "Bob" !!
