Charley Pride...320 Kbps

We now go "Country & Western" for the next three posts courtesy of my brother from the "Hoard" that I got a Xmas....not forgeting "Ken & my niece "Nicola"who also made a substantial contribution !!...But now back to the Music !!..can't say That I have heard any of "Charley's" work the name seems familiar but not the songs....The selection that is on this L/P seems to be more or less the same but with different words....the tempo is the same I wish there was a "Gem" on this one but can't see or hear one !!...maybe my ears are not attuned to the 123 tempo !!!

1. I'd Rather Love You
2. Time Your Not A Friend Of Mine
3. Jeanie Norman
4. Anywhere Just Inside Your Arms
5. When The Train Comes In

1. Piroque Joe
2. Was It All Worth Losing You
3. Instant Loneliness
4. This Highway Leads To Glory
5. Time Out For Jesus



Rock Hudson.

This one came from "Bob" as did the "Swing" one and I must say that I was most surprised about the "Rock Hudson" one but it's okay !!..True he has not got much of singing voice but with the help of "Rod McKuen" who wrote the songs and produced it It's an interesting Epitaph !... and well worth a listen too !!.....This was recorded in the early 70's in London !!
True that he is a bit "shakey" on a couple of tracks but after listening to it two or three times it has grown on me and I like it!! will be played a lot !!
