The Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orch...320 Kbps

Re-Post
 Change of mood now ! ....all the "Classical" L/P's that I have posted all have well known Melodies that everybody I reckon will recognize... this one is no exception It has "The Can Can"..."Barcarolle"and a couple more that I am sure most people will know....There was hardly any gaps in the tracks so I had to record it as Track 1 Side 1.. and Track 2 Side 2...Hope you give it a chance and download it...No "Highbrow" Music on this "Blog" !!!

1. Side One
2. Side Two 


 

Robert Young

Another one from across the channel a singer that is in the "Mario Lanza" mode.....Its a pity on this L/P that he sings some of "Mario's" Songs that are associated with him because you cant help but make a comparison and although "Robert" has a great voice he unfortunately comes a close second !!...Saying that if you can put the "Lanza" voice to bed then this is a great selection of songs !!!





YMA SUMAC in Hollywood, 1964 Inca Love Song & Earthquake (Tumpa) complete

Lena Martell

Surprise!! Surprise!!...I really enjoyed this one ..Thanks to "Bob"....But I do love a "Live" performance you can't hide anything.... no little man in the booth messing about with the knobs covering up your "Bum" notes !!!...Can't see any date on the sleeve so don't know what year it could be...maybe someone out there could enlighten us !!...certainly the audience are appreciative and are enjoying themselves....Pity there is no info on the sleeve about "Lena" I believe that she is Scottish (I Think)....no doubt if she's not someone will correct me and perhaps fill in the gaps !!!.....Sorry seemed to have lost track 7/8 on side one !!!


 

Engelbert Humperdinck...320 Kbps

Talking of "Engelbert" here he is in person !!...also from the 60's with a selection of songs including one of his hits !! Title track of course !!...and I'll leave it at that and let the info on the back sleeve fill in the gaps!!!!
