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 !!

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 !!

2. Linda
3. 'Round Midnight
4. Since I Fell For You
5. You've Changed
6. Good Bye

1. Love Story
2. Lost In The Stars

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' 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 !!

1. Turn Me Around
2. Checkmate
3. I'd Rather Leave While I'm In Love
4. A Love Like Yours

Nana Mouskouri....320 Kbps

 Re-post requested by Anonymous

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 !!

1. Scarborough Fair/Canticle
2. The Last Thing On My Mind
3. The Lily Of The West
4. Try To Remember
5.Song For A Winters Night
6. Ereena

1. The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

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 !!
