Ella Fitzgerald....320 Kbps


I wasn't going to post any of the "Ella Songbooks"but having been listening to them again and decided to post them...I have most of the "Songbooks"on L/P's and have also bought them again on CD's....I still think that they sound better as an L/P....true there is no crackles or pops...but there is still something different in the sound !!...starting with the Gershwin's there are 5 Volumes so will be posting the rest soon...All 5 have their covers painted by an French artist called "Bernard Buffet"who incidentally is one of my favourite modern artists...can't decide which is the best track so will leave that decision in the air !!

P.S. The Info on the songs comes from the Booklet that came with the CD's it is very informative so enjoy the read !!

1. Sam And Delilah
2. But Not For Me
3. My One And Only
4. Let's Call The Whole Thing Off
5. I've Got Beginners Luck

1. Oh Lady Be Good
2. Nice Work If You Can Get It
3. Things Are Looking Up
4. Just Another Rhumba
5. How Long has This Been Going On

Waldo de Los Rios And Orch...320 Kbps


Here is the first L/P of "Classics" with a beat....I posted the 2nd one earlier....this is the better one probably because all the tracks on this one are well known....the track listing might not mean much to those who are not familiar with the classics but I am sure that most people will recognise the tunes...especialy "Mozarts 40" and"Dvorak 9th"......It's not in the least highbrow !!

1. Beethoven's... 9th Symphony (Ode To Joy)
2. Schubert's... 8th Symphony (Unfinished)
3. Mozart's... Symphony No 40
4. Brahm's... 3rd Symphony

1. Dvorak's... Symphony No 9 (New World)
2. Haydn's...The Toy Symphony
3. Tchaikovsky's...Symphony No 5
4. Mendelssohn...4th Symphony (Italian)
