Al Martino...320 Kbps

Re-Post Requested By Vistef

Everyone who likes music from the 50's and 60's should be aware of "Frank Sinatra's" L/P
"Songs For Swinging Lovers" which is just about the best Sinatra made....This one comes a close second to it !!!...having said that I don't think anyone will ever beat "SFSL"....I've always liked Al Martino and he has recorded some good "pop" singles at the start of his singing career in the 50's who could forget "Here In My Heart"which incidentally was the first No 1 record when the UK started there "Top Charts"...then there was "Rachael"..."Story Of Tina" track on this L/P is "Summertime"....different !!
P.S. I've said it once before and I'll say it again the "Arrangement's & Orchestrations can make a hell of a difference in the making of a excellent L/P or CD.... and this Orchestra that is backing Al Martino is first class....must say I have never heard of "Stanley Applebaum
