Lena Horne ..320 Kbps

This is some early recordings of Lena's and there are some great tracks on it...some of the tracks are just with a piano bass and drums so it gives the feeling of a jazzier Lena  I'm sure that there are more L/P's around that has her singing witha small combo's but this is the only one I have....Most of the L/P's and CD's I have heard of Lena feature big Songs and full orchestra's...I would like to hear more of her earlier work !! track for me is definatly the last one "Deed I Do"...

1. A Foggy Day
2. He Makes Believe He's Mine 
3. Pass Me By
4. Something To Live For
5. The Man I Love

1. I've Got The World On A String
2. Sometimes I'm Happy
3. It's Mad Mad Mad
4. Love Of My Life
5. Deed I Do

Lena Horne..320 Kbps

This is a beautiful set of standard songs by Lena recorded in 1976 in London..featuring "Phil Woods" on saxophone on most of the track by far is "Someone To Watch Over Me" also featuring "David Snell" on Harp at the beginning and a  great solo sax by Phil...boy!! it does'nt get any better than that...and as I've said many times they don't make em' like that anymore !!

P.S. After listening to this again the track "I've Got The World On A String" is in my view the best version EVER even beating "Sinatra's and "Boy" that says it all !!!

1. I've Grown Accustomed To His Face
2. Someone To Watch Over Me
3. My Funny Valentine
4. Someday My Prince Will Come
5. I've Got The World On A String

1. Softly As I Leave You
2.  I Have Dreamed
3. A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing
4. I've Got To Have You
5. My Ship
