Re-Post
  Here we have Judy performing songs that seem to be taken from her TV shows and "Live Performances"...but there is no audience participation...so I wonder if this is a Studio recording or have they cut out the enthusiastic shouting and clapping that usualy happens when Judy was performing !!

The Lettermen.320 Kbps

Re-Post

 Its great just to be able to put a record on the turntable move the arm to the edge of the record and play some great songs and music without having the "Boom Boom Bang Bang" thudding in your ears !!....which this L/P has not got !!...And of course nowdays its buttons you have to press to get the perfect sound of the three great voices of "The Lettermen"singing songs from the 60's !!

1. Sweet September
2. Save Your Heart For Me
3. Blue Velvet
4. Secretly

Shirley Bassey.320 Kbps

Re-Post


 A very early Shirley Bassey release she was about 22 when she recorded this album and had swapped labels from "Phillips" to the "Columbia" label....This was before she had her tonsils out so her voice did change a bit afterwards....But it did not make much difference to the power of her voice she could still belt those songs out when it was needed !!....here's a set of classic standards sung as only "Dame Shirley" does the best....It includes her hit "The Party's Over"...but for me I  think the best one is "No One Ever Tells You"

1. A Foggy Day In London Town
2. I've Got You Under My Skin
3. Cry Me A River
4. April In Paris
5. I've Never been In Love Before
6. The Man That Got Away

Teresa Brewer

A very early "Teresa" singing what I would call "Novelty" songs  going by some of the titles
she certainly sounds a lot different in her later recording's... her "Jazz" recording's in the 80's & 90's has her voice lower and more mature but I guess that comes with age !
The Extra track below "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" is from "Live At Carnegie Hall" CD just to show how much her voice had changed recorded in April 1978 !!!

1. Heavenly Lover
2. The Rains Fall on Everybody
3. The One Rose

5. Satellite
6. 63 Sailors In Grand Central Station

1. Bye Bye Goodbye
2. Fair Weather Sweetheart
