Vera Lynn

There are some singers that everything has been said about them and "Vera" is one of them so "Nuff" said from me !!!..Its all on the Back sleeve which is great !! ...for a change !!
This one and the previous one was courtesy of "Bob"


Jerry Vale

Some Italian Songs now at least I know "Jerry Vale" is an American singer that's about as far as I know so let the voice and songs do the talking !!


Joe Dolan.

I had to read up on "Wikipedia" about "Joe" because the name rang a bell but not the songs...seems that he was more popular on the continent than in England although he had several top hits here (must have been asleep) !!!.... a very good introduction is this L/P from "Bill" worth listening too if like me "Joe Dolan" is new to you !!
Must Admit I'm playing it a lot !!! I like his voice !!


Golden Songs...320 Kbps

A very nice compilation spanning the 50's 60's & 70's now with a surprise track (to me that is) !! said track is the "Liza Minnelli" one of "Try To Remember"...I must say thaty if it was not there in black and white or should I say blue & white !! I would never had guessed it was her !!

1. Rambling Rose...Nat King Cole
2. Born Free...Matt Monro
3. Maybe This Time...Liza Minnelli
4. Bridge Over Troubled Waters...Nancy Wilson
5. Love Is Blue...Al Martino
6. Thats Amore...Dean Martin

Helmut Zacharias.

Up pops the "Magic Violins Ensemble" again for all you "Easy Listening Folks"...Must say i do like the Violin sound that Bob keeps sending So enjoy !!!


Cannon & Ball...320 Kbps

Now we have an English comedy Duo from the 80's popular on TV with their "Cannon & Ball" show !! with all the comic duo's shades of "Abbott & Costello" "Laurel & Hardy" Lewis & Martin" was all incorporated in their shows, and this L/P shows that once the comic stints are over both have decent voices...nothing to get exited about but still easy on the ear !!...The "Diamond" in the bundle of songs is definitely "Let Me Rock You"....don't know which one has the "Gravely"voice but it should have been featured more than it was !!!


The Geoff Love Singers...320 Kbps

When I was listening to this one a thought came into my head !!..was "The Mike Sammes Singers" doing some "Moonlighting" !!...very similar sound...So off to "Google" but drew a blank...information about "Geoff Love" but no mention of "The Singers " it remains a mystery unless someone had some info to pass on !!!
After listening to it a couple of times I don't think TMSS were responsible something is missing That distinct sound is not there !!

1. The Very Thought Of You
2. You Make Me Feel Brand New
3. I'll Get By
4. He Was Beautiful 
5. I Wish You Love
6. As Time Goes By
7. My Prayer

7. Someone To Watch Over me


Johnny Mathis.

Here's a double helping of JM supplied by the "Guy" across the channel !!...seems to be a compilation of mixed tracks from some of his L/P's some I have not heard before so its a good selection...Thanks "Bill" !!!...
