Earl Bostick....320 Kbps

Re-Post Requested By Teddybear42

The first "Jazz" 78rpm that I bought when I was in my teens was "Earl Bostic's Flamingo"
of course didn't realise at the time that it was a Jazz Record I just liked the rasping sound of the Tenor Sax...It was on a "Vogue" label and as I said a very brittle 78rpm and they did break very easy...I think it lasted about a couple of years before it got smashed up with a load more when I was taking some of them to play at a mates house on my bike and I fell of my bike and they shattered all over the road....didn't have the comfort of a car in those days !!...Anyway back to the L/P most of the tracks are well known songs and are all played in the "Earl Bostic" rasping tenor sax sound so no surprises track of course is "Flamingo" which to me is as fresh sounding today as it was in the 50's...

2. Deep Purple
3. Always
4. Moonglow
5. Cherokee

1. Liebestraum

Dusty Springfield....320 Kbps

Not got much to say about this Dusty L/P its one of her lesser known ones and all the tracks are sung great but there is not one track that seems to stick in your mind....maybe that's it's failing none of the songs are memorable.....All the "Dusty" fans out there will no doubt disagree with me because if you are a dedicated "Fan" of Dusty's she can do no wrong....That's how I feel about my "Special" Singers !!!
