Herb Alpert

Herb Alpert selection that is in keeping with the title...not so hectic as the "Hits" that made him but the "Ooomph" is still there !!....great version of "Without Her"...and 100% for the rest of the tracks.... each track has something different about it !!...still with "Shorty Rogers" on board with the arrangments helps !!!!


 

Muziek Bij Uw Films

Now here's a funny strange one thought that it might be themes from films but no... after doing a "Google Translation" it comes up as "Music To Your Movies Frequently Requested Themes"so I guess the cover now makes sense....Its a soundtrack of your home movies that is if you need one !!!....By Golly these marketing guy's come up with some strange concepts for L/P titles and covers !!.....Anway apart from that it is a pleasant 40 odd minutes of music !!!...from "Bob"


Une Histoire Des Grands Moments De La Chanson.

Ok now off we go across the channel to "France" via "Belgium" of course...and even I can more or less tell what the title of this L/P is !! At a guess I think it would something like "The History Of Great Moments Of Songs"!!!....Some of the songs sound a bit familiar so I recon somewhere there will be an English version !!

Tom Jones...320 Kbps

Its 48 years since this L/P was made and it only seems like yesterday that "Tom Jones" raced up the chats with "Its Not Unusual"....I think that when this was recorded he had the title hit and his style was not fully developed into what we now know....So because the "Green Green Grass Of Home"was CW influenced away he went down that road....And he makes a very good job of all the tracks and you can definatly hear the "Tom Jones" of today !!...with "Mohair Sam & Detroit City" !!

1. Riders In The Sky
2. He'll have To Go
3. Funny Familiar Forgotten Feelings
4. Sixteen Tons
5. Two Brothers
6. My Mothers Eyes
7. Green Green Grass Of Home

1. Ring Of Fire
2. Field Of Yellow Daisies
3. Wsah I Could Say No To You
