Re-Post Requested By Teddybear42

 On this L/P there is a version of "If" that is the "Gem"!!!....It equals some of the versions that are classed as "Definitive"..and that has surprised me !!.....On The first L/P that is on here "Dianne Lee" seemed to take a back seat on the vocals just doing the harmonising like a backing singer BUT in this one she definatly does more !!...and you can hear how good this Duo was....Its also seems that they have signed the front cover......They Split Up in November 1980 and Lennie Peters died of Cancer in October 1992...

Sandie Shaw

Some L/P's now from "Bob"....The girl with the "Bare" Feet from the 60's singing some of her hits....Just seems like yesterday that "Sandie" was dangling on a string !!!....Phew!!! that was 49 years ago !!!

Perez Prado

After "Sandie" get up on your feet "Bare" or not !! and have a "Samba" Rhumba" "Cha Cha" around the house !!...moving your body makes you fit !!So they say !! go with it !!!


Paul Mauriat & Orchestra

Relax now with the orchestra of  "The Above Gentleman"......


The Peddlers

The Peddlers always seem to put a different slant on most of their cover versions of songs and this L/P is no different..when you first hear Track One I doubt whether you would guess what it was !!....This one and the two below thank you "John" for them !!!... didn't even get on that carpet !!!..aint technology Cool and great !!!

 Bonus Tracks.....
That's Life
Wasting My Time 
Steel Mill

Ray Charles

Here's a masterclass of singing and piano playing....Once again not played to much attention to "Ray's" singing in the past but this is a mature voice recorded in 1967...didn't realise Ray could sing "Falsetto" !!! and make it sound good !!

 Ray asked Sid Feller to write all the arrangements on this album. The backing was standard big band or orchestra with strings. As an experiment, Ray sings with a high sustained falsetto that he tried, he said, “for no other reason than self-satisfaction.”  

Marian Montgomery

The fruity voice of "Marian" doing some "Swingin' with some well known songs !! A1 Classy Lady !!

The Fureys & Davey Arthur.320 Kbps

We now have a gentle set of songs from the Irish Group.... it does say on the front cover "For Lovers Of All Ages"...but by the choice and sentiment of the songs and the couple on the front I would say "WRONG"'s for the "Golden Day's" of the "Golden People " !!!!

The London Philharmonic Orchestra.320 Kbps

This is not from the "Soundtrack" of the film  but its a recording by "The London Philharmonic"'s ticks all the boxes !!...and the second side is cool !!...I first thought when I heard it that it was "Holt's" "Planets"..because of the reference to Mars Mercury & Venus !!
but it seems the tracks were by a different composer !!
