Tonia....320 Kbps

This is my first introduction to this singer.....Sooooooooo I "Googled" her and this is the result..

Tonia (born Arlette Antoine Dominicus, 25 July 1947, is a Belgian singer, best known for her participation in the 1966 Eurovision Song Contest.

This L/P is from 1981......went on Utube to see if the clip from the 1966 Eurovison was there it was but the sound was all out of sinc so decided not to post it.....She does a very good job with all the well known songs and puts her own spin on it is worth a listen too even if like me you have not heard her before .....


Frank Sinatra....320 Kbps

 One of Sinatra's very popular L/P's....nearly as good as "Swingin' Lovers"....On the British release of this L/P "On The Road To Mandalay"was not on it was replaced by another track..I believe that it was something to do with the estate of "Rudyard Kipling" they did'nt like what Sinatra had done with it....this one is an American release so it's on it...Arn't we "Brits" picky!!!...if its true !!...Can anyone out there verify that !!
