Rostal And Schaefer..320 Kbps

I had a feeling at the back of my mind when I saw this L/P that I had heard of this "Piano Playing Duo" but had never actualy saw or heard them play....its a pity about that because I enjoyed every minute of it !! And I guess so did the person who must have been to their "Concert" and got it Signed!!...seems that someone has done a lot of "Live Shows" because I've got more L/P's with Signature's on them !!.....Anyway back to the music... a great mix of Classical and Popular Music...Fav's are the selection of "My Fair Lady" and "The Journey Into Space"
Also its great to have some sensible insights to what goes on behind the scenes of a concert tour that's mentioned on the back Sleeve !!

Rod Stewart..320 Kbps

A self explanatory  title to "Rod Stewart's" Double L/P.....Rod is in his "Faces" mode...and there were plenty of false endings that took me by surprise !!!...I think I got them all !!...Best tracks for me was "Handbags and Gladrags" and "Maggie May" of course !!!!

Charlie Williams..320 Kbps

Here we have a comedian from the 70's with a pleasant enough voice first track "Walking My Baby" suits his voice 100% the rest of the tracks are a bit shaky....But I did like the track "Little Things Mean a Lot" the song needs a bit of tremble in the voice !!.....On the back sleeve we have information all about "Charlie"....In the 70's a lot of the comedians and actors were giving their vocal chords a brush up by releasing L/P's...and as you can see by the back cover he's signed it !!!
