Digno Garcia

Something a little different now from the last posts !!...a different style of music and band !!...all the way from Belguim courtesy of "Bob".....Variety is the "Spice" of life and that goes for musical tastes as well !!!!...So enjoy a trip to the "Tropics" !!!!!!!!!



 

Dickie Valentine...320 Kbps

Ah !!...this L/P brings back memories of my teenage years in the 50's...concert's at "The De-Montfort Hall" Leicester with "Ted Heath" and his band...buying "Lita Roza" a coffee in "The Banners Milk Bar"and later on a drink at the "Marquis Of Wellington" pub with some of the band !!....I saw them many many times and enjoyed every minute...its a pity that big bands have now gone out of fashion !!!!....In case there are some of you out there who are not familiar with "Dickie Valentine" he was one of three singers with one of England's best "Swing" bands "Ted Heath" along with "Lita Roza" and "Dennis Lotis"...he was a great singer with a very distinctive voice..and I think that had he not died in a car accident he would have made it to the big time !!....So to the uninitiated give it a listen to and hear a great voice !!
