Sacha Distel...320 Kbps

Ooops ! seems we are back on the track of the compilations !!!....Soooo here is that French Guy who co-wrote "The Good Life" singing a selection of  well known hit songs including the one he wrote !! I have said many times before all singers who sing well known songs and standards should put there own stamp on it and do something different with the arrangement's and style... "Sacha" has the saving grace of a "French" accent so I suppose you could say it's different !!!..But unfortunatly no surprises !!!...This one has some jumps...Sorry !!

Johnny Mathis...320 Kbps

Another compilation made up of tracks from "JM"s previous L/P's...20 tracks in all so I guess this one is good value considering that the average tracks on a studio recorded L/P is usually only about 12 to 14 tracks....all tracks are A1...BUT  "Song Of Joy" should have been left on the recording studio floor !!!...IMHO !!!...AND it includes one of my favourite "JM" tracks 
"Side 2 Track 9"....pure magic !!!

Shirley Bassey...320 Kbps

Here's a very young "Shirl" recording and it evokes great memories for me from the late 50's seeing her at the start of her career at our local "Variety" Venue "The Palace" which unfortunately is now no longer there in its place is "Argos" and a Car Park !!!...I wish we had the Conservationists that we have now, in the 50's I'm sure that a lot of the great buildings that The "Council" in their wisdom got demolished would still be with us !!!...Ok Rant over back to "Dame Shirl" I would guess that these recordings would be some of the first that she recorded on the "Phillips" Label including her Hit "As I Love You "....Her Voice is now completely different owing to a throat operation later on and also with age the voice does change even those who can't sing like me !!!
