Funny Girl..Film 320 Kbps

Earlier in the blog I posted the stage version...here is the film version...certainly "Omar Sharif" I think does a better job as "Nick"...but I suppose there is nothing like the atmosphere of a "Live Broadway Show" production which unfortunately never can come across on a record or CD !!!

Now here's a compilation L/P that the record company has given some thought to it..and not just gathered together random hits !!....The title is very appropriate for all the tracks.. and has some classic hits of the 70's/80's (I think)...Who can forget the great "Bobby Goldsboro's" "Summer"...and the best recording of "All By Myself" by "Eric Carmen"...not forgetting "Paul Young's" best ever hit.....All the tracks are A1.. by Super Singers....congratulations to "Dennis Knowles"who compiled this L/P....and an inspired last track "Music" by "John Miles" to end the L/P !!

1. Miss You Nights....Cliff Richard
2. I'd Rather Leave While I'm In Love....Rita Coolidge
3. Gaye....Clifford T Ward

Nana Mouskouri....320 Kbps

Re-Post Requested By Anonymous
This is one of Nana's English Language L/P's recorded in America not very well known songs but sung great...Best one for me is "Danny Come Home".....when she was just starting her career she also made an L/P in America called"Nana In New York" "The Girl From Greece Sings"which is excellent recorded in 1962...A cool friend has put the link on the CBOX on the right hand side of this Blog if anybody wants to get it...It is definitely one of her best L/P's !! and you can hear how much her style and voice has changed over the years !!

Jack Jones....320 Kbps

This is Jack Jones at his best singing some great songs....The concept of the L/P is as the titlesays "Love Story" and the producers have done a great job in choosing the songs and Jack certainly sings them in a quiet and gentle manner....Listening to the tracks again I think that his version of "I Think Its Going To Rain Today" is probably the best on record !!

Dusty Springfield....320 Kbps

This is the first L/P of Dusty's that she recorded when she came back from America....It wasn't a very commercial success which is a pity because it is a good one....True she had changed her appearance and on some of the songs on this L/P it does not sound like the Dusty of the 60's...like on the last track which incidentally is the best one on the L/P if you didn't know it was her...well give it a listen and make up your own mind !!

Jackie Trent....320 Kbps

  
Re-post Requested By Vinyl Room



 

This L/P has a great and different version of "It's Not Unusual"....Jackie Trent was the wife of "Tony Hatch" and together they wrote and produced most of "Petula Clark's" hits....

South Pacific....320 Kbps

The covers of this L/P is what I got from the internet mine are ripped and in tatters....This as you see is the soundtrack from the film and it seems that the only two people that actualy sang was "Mitzi Gaynor" & "Ray Walston"...all the rest were dubbed by different people....shame they did'nt get actors that could sing to be in it !!

Billie Holiday....320 Kbps

 Re-Post



This is a fantastic L/P maybe perhaps for the Jazz lovers...but maybe after reading this some of you out there with good music taste will perhaps give it a listen...Billie sings with a jazz group of Trumpet, Tenor Sax, Piano, Guitar And Drums and all the tracks except one is done in a Jam Session Style.. that is Billie Sings then you have the solo's of trumpet, sax, ect ending with Billie singing again...The Track "One For My Baby" is a corker she sings all the time all 5 and a half minuets of it and it even beats the "Sinatra's" version and boy does that take some doing !! Billie voice is definitely an acquired taste when I first heard her I didn't take much notice but as the years went by and I got older and wiser then the appreciation kicked in...This was recorded in 1956 unfortunately 3 years later Billie died.....

This is a 1969 recording with "The Athenians"and a very good one Nana's voice is clear and precise without the big orchestra's she sounds great....Included is her hit "White Rose Of Athens"....later I think she recorded it with a full orchestra and that the "Hit" version (I think)...all the tracks are great and her version of "The First Time Ever I saw Your Face" is one of the best !!

Nina Simone....320 Kbps

Here is Nina at her singing best and includes a couple of tracks of her on the piano proving just how good a pianist she was....This compilation by "Polydor" includes some of her great tracks...When I first bought this L/P I thought maybe it was some re-recordings that she had made at some time in her career but no they seem to be the original "Bethlehem" recordings....Just checked on "Google" and it seems that it is the first L/P that Nina did for "Bethlehem Records"just re-released with one track missing by "Polydor"....So enjoy a great unique voice !!

Hi Steve53...thanks for the correction on "Stephan Marriott"...meant to type "The Small Faces" and it came out "The Move"....mind must have been elsewhere or I had A "senior moment"......Thanks....Cheers.....Luigi

WRC Oliver....320 Kbps

This is another WRC recording of a musical which I thought was like the other WRC releases of "Musicals" made up with artists picked by the record company BUT after going on "Google" to find out if the "Stephan Marriott" was the singer from the group "The Small Faces"and a Pop singer in his own right I came across this L/P cover....So it is a West End Cast recording ...Its not the original first cast but its a good one well worth a listen too !
