Flambards...320 Kbps


 This is the music from a late 70's Television Series....Even if you haven't seen the Series the music stands on its own.... The tracks are catchy and beautiful and there's a whistle tune that if you download it you will be whistling all day !!!.....If any of you out there get a chance to see this great T/V Series or get the DVD (which I have) then go for it you wont be disappointed....

P.S. This is definatly one of the best "Mood Music" that I have in my collection and I hope that most of you out there will have a listen and give an opinion!! I said above the music stands on its own so you don't realy have to see the "Series" to appreciate it...BUT it does help !!!

Ethel Merman

Obviously this is not from the soundtrack of the film!!...If it was your thoughts would be "Where the hell is "Donald O'Conner & Vera Ellen" !!!..It is in fact a more detailed song list from the "Show/Film"with the original "Hostess With The Mostest"!!!!!!


Music Of Torvill And Dean...320 Kbps

2. Capriccio Espagnol

1. Barnum on Ice

Joe Longthorne...320 Kbps

When I first came across this L/P that was supplied to me at Xmas I was hoping that it would be a knockout one !...Because as you can see from the Video below "Joe" is a great impressionist and funny with it to !!...he does a great job on all the tracks but nothing to me stands out as a "WoW" track.....saying that its still a good set of songs sung perfectly....The track "To All The Girls"seems to be a bit faulty in the pressing so it does skip and jump a bit couldn't see any scratch or marks on the track so that the assumption !!

Herb Alpert And The Tijuana Brass...320.Kbps

Re-Post Requested By Anonymous
 Earlier on I downloaded a "Peter Nero" L/P of "Herb Alpert" hits and said "If you didn't know it wasn't "Herb Alpert" you wouldn't know or words to that effect !!!...Anyway here is the man himself with 16 of his well known hits...they are all there !!...Bit of music trivia coming up...His first hit "Lonely Bull" was supposed to have been recorded in a garage on an old Tape recorder deck no studio equipment !!...whether or not that is true who knows...but I recon that they must have cleaned it up in the studio and that little man that fiddles with the knobs and sliders did his thing !!!...

P.S. Seems that we have had another ride on that "DeLorean"...from the 40's to the 70's with this one !!!
