Ella Fitzgerald..320 KBps

 This is a 10 inch L/P of early Ella's....way before her move to Verve Records and all the "Songbooks".....I think there is a slight imperfection in the pressing of this L/P...on the track
"I've Got A Crush on you" if you listen very carefully you can hear the repeat of her singing it only goes on for a couple of lines... but it's worth a mention I wonder if anyone else who has got the album has also got it or maybe it's a one off....anyway its Ella and she can't do no wrong !!

Ella Fitzgerald..320 Kbps


 Here is another 10 inch L/P...this one seems to be a very early Ella...there is no indication on the back of the sleeve of who the musicians guess is that it could be some of the first recordings Ella made for "Brunswick"...could even be with "Chick Web and his Orch"....But it doesn't sound like a swing band so maybe not...


Barbara Dickson..320.Kbps

Well now I was a bit disappointed in this L/P I think that it should have been better can't put my finger on why I was disappointed because I do like "Barbara's Voice" maybe it is one of those L/P's that the more you hear it the better it becomes !!....But if you are a "BD" fan then you will love it !!

Barbra Streisand..320 Kbps

  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 opinion of course...if you disagree leave a comment !!

 1. My Funny Valentine
2. The Nearness Of You
3. When Sunny Gets Blue
4. Make The Man Love Me
