This L/P to me epitomises the sound and feel of the 70's Music and features one of the best Instrumental hit record of the 70's....I am of course talking about "Loves Theme" what an arrangement all those twanging sliding guitars definatly got the "Barry White" stamp on it and "The Love Unlimited Orch" sound you can tell who it is as soon as a track starts !!!

Eydie Gorme....320 Kbps

I think that there might be a pressing fault on the first side of this L/P or someone has played it with a knitting needle!!!....She has a hiss on all the words that begin with "S" to quote one of her tracks on here "I'm Sorry".....It was'nt new when I got it so I could'nt return it to the shop for a replacement....the second side is okay...Apart from that Eydie does a good job going "Country Style"

P.S. I think CBS should have titled this "Gorme Swings Country Style" !!!!

2. I Can't Help It
3. You Don't Know Me
4. I'm Sorry
5. The End Of The World

Perry Como....320 Kbps

The Original "Mr Laid Back" gives good interpretations of some late 60's early 70's contemporary songs...these were recorded from 1968 to I assume that this might be a compilation L/P....the producers range from "Chet Atkins"to "Don Costa" via "Pete Spargo"
"Andy Wiswell" "Ernie Altschular"......It is a very quiet soothing and as usual "Laid Back Effort" from "Mr C" !!!....And it includes his Hit "Its Impossible" !!!

Cass Elliot....320 Kbps

When you listen to "The Mama's & The Papa's" Cass's voice blends in well and it is only when she does a solo bit and this L/P when you realise how good a voice she had got and very distintive....I believe that this was the first solo one that she did...a great selection of "Cherrie's Jubilee" !!!

Here's that big record producer of the 70's "Richard Perry" taking on "Andy Williams"...he certainly worked with some of the great singers and produced some brilliant L/P's.....He's worked with "Barbra Sriesand" "Ella" "Leo Sayer" and loads more just check him out on "Google" to see how diverse he is !!....All the songs on this L/P are contempory of the song composers of the 1970's...and not a standard in sight !!....and a great different version of "Walk Right Back" !!!

P.S. this was the comment that was posted earlier !!
