This recording of Ella's is from 1947-1955...The cover of this L/P I think is one of the best pictures of Ella that has been put on a cover...I think that you can hear the change in her voice on the 1947 recording's as compared to the 1955 ones it has got deeper and sweeter !!

Gilbert Becaud...320 Kbps

Here's one for all the folks that drop by from France !!...obviously all the songs are sung in French and I am sure that some of them will be familiar to every one !!.....I sort of recognise the first track on Side One but cant seem to pin it down to an English title....Side Two has more that are definitely recognisable !!!!....Side Two..Track One think "Vicki Carr" and Track Four well !! a dead ringer for "Jane Morgan" !!!...and the last track of course sung by just about every good "Classy" singer !!!

1. Le Bateau Blanc

3. Dimanche A Orly
4. Pilou Pilou He
5. Mes Mains

Timmy Thomas...320 Kbps

This is an L/P that I wish I had listened more to in the past....I bought it for the title track which is a great one...but like so many L/P's /CD's if there is only one track that you buy it for the other tracks seem to disappear and after a while it gets left to gather dust....BUT now after reviving it after so many years of non play....its a cracker !! have a good listen....and if you havn't heard the "Why Can't We live Together" track then you are in for a treat !!!!

1. Why Can't We Live Together
2. Rainbow Power
3. Take Care Of Home
4. The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
5. The Coldest Days Of My Life

1. In The Beginning
2. Cold Cold People
3. Opportunity
4. Dizzy Dizzy World
5. Funky Me
