If any of you out there in the wide wide world has not heard any of "Clifford T Ward" songs then you are missing out of something great....The video below is one of his best songs and also one of my favourite songs...love it when the lyrics to a song mean something and make complete sense. listen to all the lyrics on this L/P and you will see what I mean !!...all the songs on this one are great so come on folks give it a go and listen carefully I'm sure that most people will be able to know exactly what he means !!

This L/P was bought on one of my holiday's I'd forgotten all
about it and I think that I have only played it once I think.... but I
thought I would share it with everybody because it does sound
authentic....still can't remember what made me buy it !!...must have
been all the wine and tequilla...."El Pasadoble" has all the bull fight
music....and its good to hear the familar "Tangos" I presume how they
were first composed without the lyrics....all in all I think it was a
good buy !!
P.S. It still sounds authentic !!!!.......Translations By "Google Translate "

Not much one can say about Barbra Streisand that hasn't been said thousands of times so I wont even attempt too !!....geat selection of songs especialy "I Found You Love"...and she has complete control of her voice...she recorded this L/P about 1977 just after her Film "A Star Is Born".....nice cover !!

films....recorded in "Panoramic Stereo" which I suppose is "Pye's"
version of Upgrade Stereo...I suppose if you have Hi-Fi equipment that
costs the earth !! ( A Couple Thousand pounds would do it) you would
perhaps hear a difference but to my gentle ears and my modest equipment
its sounds the same as normal Stereo!!....A good treat for all easy

again we have that little man running around fiddling with the knobs and
sliders !!....Seriously I shouldn't deride the talent of the main
guitar performers who according to the back of the sleeve and one or two
other people that have made a comment is...TOM TEDESCO......But I like
the thought of that little man running around the recording studio !!!

Over the years she has recorded some great album's and singles...
One of her best CD's in my opinion was one called "Blue Lady"..."The Nashville Sessions"She recorded it in 1975 but it was'nt released till 1995 it was recorded for the ABC Record Company...reason for the delay according to the review was "Creative differences with the label" ...whatever that means so it was lying on a shelf for 20 years

Here's Paul Simon on his own except on the track "My Little Town" which he is joined by his former singing partner "AG"....All the songs were written by Paul so you would say that they are contemporary songs of the mid 70's....there is one that is a bit of a puzzler and that is "Your Kind"....its got me stumped... Is it a picture !!...a dog !! a cat !!....what the heck is he leaving ??!!!!!

Linda Lewis has a voice that you either love or hate....I love it !!....A very talented singer songwriter in fact all the songs on this L/P she wrote herself...a couple of her hits are on this one...Its one of those L/P's that the more you listen to it the better it becomes.....so have a listen Folk's !!!!

Still keeping with "Bob" we now have some relaxing music that could send you into the "Arms Of Morpheus"depending on your mood !!....Its a good selection of well know songs that should go down well with all you "Easy Listening" Folks !!
A great Nilsson L/P just proving what a good singer and lyric writer he was....although with the exception of a couple of his hit tracks most of the songs on this L/P once you have heard them they stick in the memory even tho' you will hear them just once.....great track is "Don't Leave Me"......Great Stuff !!

This was recorded at "Ronnie Scots Club" in London in 1967 there was no gaps in between the tracks so I had to record it as just "Side 1 & Side 2"...."Blossom Dearie" has one of those voices that you either love or hate....even when she was older her voice did not change at all...I would have thought the voice would have deepened with age but it didnt !!

This is another one that will test your stereo equipment...Its much quieter than the previous ones considering there's plenty of percussion instruments..It has everything but the kitchen sink...if you read the back it gives you all the instruments that is played on this L/P.....And it is good STEREO!!!
