Helen Shapiro....320 Kbps

Re- Post....

When I bought this L/P I was pleasantly surprised....I've always liked Helen Shapiro in her "Pop" days and always thought that when she got older she would be good....a couple of her old tracks reminded me of an early Ella....well folks' I was 100% right....It's a corker...she joined forces with "Humphrey Lyttelton" and the "Jazz" influence has been brought out......Don't know whether "Humph" has had any input in this L/P but the producer and arranger has managed to do something different with the standard songs on it....You usually find that most of standard songs follow similar arrangements this one doesn' track is "Its Only A Paper Moon

1.Let Yourself Go
2. You Go To My Head
3. The Way You Look Tonight
4. Where Or When
5. Straighten Up And Fly Right
6. Cry Me A River

1. It's Alright With Me
2. It's Only a Paper Moon
3. Serenade In Blue
4. Thay Can't Take That Away From Me
5. Funny
P.S....This is one of those L/P's that will surprise you and delight take a chance and give it a listen I doubt whether any one will be disappointed....It's one of the best ones of "Popular" singers who have a go at the "standards"!!!!!.....Full 100% marks to the Producer "Steve O'Donnell" and arranger " Steve King"!!!!
