Des O'Connor...320 Kbps

This was a complete surprise when I first heard it !..I think it equals some of the original recordings !....its no secret that in England the other comedians used to take the p**s out of Des's singing because he did start out as a comedian and made his name as a stand up comic before he started recording so he was a prime target for the other comedians !! I said before he has had some top hits....So if you also want a nice surprise give this one a listen I'm sure that you wont be disappointed...once again thanks to "Bob" for this one and there are more by Des to come so here's hoping they are as good as this one !!!
