Adam Faith....320 Kbps


Now for something a bit different...Adam Faith as you have never heard him before....Forget the Pop singer and hear him in a new light...the first track is a "Wowzer"...the guitar solo is by "Richie Blackmore" one of the guitar greats..This L/P is an American Release don't know if its got a UK release but I recon that it must have....if you can play the first track on high volume it's a cool one....... Re-recording and listening
to the tracks again this is a beautiful L/P and well worth a download IMHO !!!

The Planets....320 Kbps

Earlier on we dipped our toes in the light classical I think we will dive into the "Cosmos" and go all classical for a change !!....Most people will be aware of the track "Mars" but I wonder how many knows where it comes from !!...Sooooooooo folks it's here !!!
The Planets Suite was first performed in September 1918 so it is a fairly modern piece of classical music and its a "Beaut"...On the back sleeve there is a very good description of the moods of music of the tracks written by "Imogen Holst"who I assume to be the daughter of the be adventurous and give it a go !!

1. Mars
2. Venus
3. Mercury

1. Jupiter
