This one and the previous "Ginger Rogers" was supplied by "Bob"....NOW would it have been better for "Ginger" to have a re-lease like this one !!!..the jury is out !!....A nice set of nostalgic songs from the films...and a mine of information on the back sleeve of where how and when !!

Frank Sinatra...320 Kbps

 When Sinatra joined "Capitol" records in 1953 he recorded a 10 inch L/P called "Songs For Young Lovers"with "Nelson Riddle" and that was the start of his "Swinging" style... before in the 40's he was known for his slow romantic songs....then in 1954 he made this one and the rest is history !!

Eydie Gorme

I did buy most of Eydie Gorme's L/P's this one got away!! I thank Bob once again for it...Two of her really Great And I will say that again in Capital letters GREAT GREAT Tracks are on this namely "What Did I Have That I Don't Have" And "If He Walked into My Life"....Doesn't get any better than that !!!...check YouTube I think there is a video where she sings one of them...will have to check later and post it...If it's still there !!!

Dick Van Dyke

We are still in "Belguim" with "Bob" for this one....I would have thought that the orchestrations would have more "Ooomf" being that it's the "Enoch Light  Orch" and recorded by "Command" Records...BUT it's a pleasant easy listen !!


Des O'Connor

On this L/P Des talks as well as sings....he does what a lot of singers were doing in the 70's joining two songs together with same themes...and even tho' there is nothing on the sleeve to tell you the date all you have to do is look at the "Flares" that Des is wearing and "Bingo" the 70's !!!!...This one came from "Bob" !!


Ady Zehnpfennig.

Here's that man again with the Fantastic Organ playing some well known 70's songs.. courtesy of "Bob"

Halcyon Highlights...320 Kbps

Now this one might someday become a rare one !!....Story is my parents in the 70's had a holiday in "St Lucia"and came back with this souvenir...Don't think it's been played very often twice to my knowledge !!...It was produced by the "Hotel Halcyon" where they stayed
I had a check on "Google"but it is now not there... either pulled down or completely refurbished and a name change....The tracks are by musicians and vocalists that performed there...Maybe somebody out there also had a holiday and stayed at the Hotel if so you can always leave a comment !!....overall its a pleasant L/P.... pleasant listening !!!!

The Ink Spots..

Here's another different one from "Bob"'s great having and hearing L/P's that I would never ever get to hear if the "Net" wasn't here !!...I had a suspicion that this was one of those that takes old recording's and adds more music tracks to it....but according to the back sleeve no its not !!..and they have done Vol 1 And 2....wonder if anybody has any information on "Spinorama" records ?? !!!! and if anybody has links to Vol 1 & 2 be cool to get them...its a great L/P !! people give it a download !!....still not sure tho' the man fiddling with the knobs and sliders on the "Recording Console" is responsible !!

Lena Zavaroni...

I will let "Wikepedia" do the talking on this one...its a very different post courtesy of "Bob" from "Belgium"...I wonder what kind of "Singer / Entertainer" she would have been if her life hadn't gone the way it did !!!!

Lena Hilda Zavaroni[1] (4 November 1963 – 1 October 1999) was a Scottish child singer and a television show host. With her album Ma! (He's Making Eyes At Me) at ten years of age, she is the youngest person in history to have an album in the top ten of the UK Albums Chart. Later in life she hosted TV shows and appeared on stage. From the age of 13 Lena suffered from anorexia nervosa which became clinical depression two years later at the age of 15. Lena died at the age of 35 from pneumonia.

In 1974 Lena appeared on Opportunity Knocks hosted by Hughie Green and won the show for a record-breaking five weeks running. She followed this with the album Ma! (He's Making Eyes At Me), a collection of classic and then-recent pop standards which reached number eight in the UK album chart. At 10 years, 146 days old, Lena is still the youngest person to have an album in the Top 10.[3][4]
Lena also sang at a Hollywood charity show with Frank Sinatra and Lucille Ball in 1974, at which Ball commented, "You’re special. Very special and very, very good," although some sources attribute the words to Sinatra. Following this, Lena guest-starred on The Carol Burnett Show. She also appeared on The Morecambe and Wise Show, the 1976 Royal Variety Show and performed at the White House for US President Gerald Ford. Signed to the soul-oriented Stax Records label in the United States, Lena was not widely popular despite the praise and television appearances; her Ma album was not listed in the popularity charts, and its title single only reached 91st position on the Billboard Hot 100 during a four-week chart run in the summer of 1974.[5]

West Side Story Film...320 Kbps

I believe that most of the singing in this film was "Dubbed" by "Ghost Singers" as the movie industry called really got no idea who they are !!...maybe some "Movie Buff" out there will fill in the gaps !!....most of the info on the back sleeve about the making of the film is interesting reading but no mention of the singers !!
