The Golden Age Of The Hollywood Stars..320 Kbps

Here's a strange different and wonderful double L/P....full of Dialogue & songs from 50 films from 1926 till 1949 made by Warner Bros....I guess it wont be everybodys cup of tea but its a great nostalgic romp of yesteryear....Its a pity that there are no gaps in the tracks so I had to record them as Side 1-4...and you will have to check the playing list to get what films the track is from....nothing I could do about that the tracks are too close together to separate them.....The L/P sleeve has a 12 page booklet inside that is full of pictures and information on the films featured... very difficult to scan otherwise I would have tried to scan some interested to have some comments from people who decide to give it go and a listen !!

Side One......

Side Two....

Side Three....
Side Four....

Side One                                                         Side Two                              Side Three

      Side Four                                                                                                          
I hope everybody who downloads this unusual L/P enjoys it as much as I do.....Takes a little bit of sorting out because of the lack of tracks definition but keep with it and you should enjoy the experence !!!

Bette Midler....320 Kbps

This I believe is Bette's first L/P partly produced by her then pianist a certain "Barry Manilow"....I bought it because of the track "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy"and thought at the time that she had a so-so voice sounding like so many other singers....Apart from "Boogie" I thought her tracks with all the girl chorus's and loads going on were a bit much of a row and I still have that opinion and can't think why she decided to do a repeat track of "Friends"which is the worst on the L/P !!!...SAYING THAT !!!...I think that the tracks were she sings on her own are great and "Superstar" is one of the best versions around today....And I did get to like the L/P a lot "Hello In There" is superb so is "Am I Blue"and I wish she had carried on "Delta Dawn" on her own !!!.....So here is one L/P that earns the title "The More You Play It The Better It Becomes"

1. Do You Want To Dance
2. Chapel Of Love
3. Superstar
4. Daytime Hustler
5. Am I Blue

1. Friends
2. Hello In There
3. Leader Of The Pack
4. Delta Dawn
5. Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy
6. Friends
