Ted Heath & Edmundo Ros

We can't leave "Begium" yet till we have had "Round 2" of the "Heath & Ros" saga !!
And by the sound of this one I believe it might be a draw !!! with the first one you will have to guess which band is playing what track !!! the experts will have no trouble BUT some tracks will get you thinking who which band is playing what track !!!!!!.....OK a joke !!
Side 1 is "Ted Heath" Side 2 "Edmundo Ros" !!!.....OR IS IT !!!!!!


Ray Conniff & Orchestra.

From one great orchestra to another and we are still over the Channel !!....a compilation from the "Ray Conniff"  stable !!.....All the tracks are featured on other L/P's scatered around this "Blog" but its great to hear them once all you "Conniff" enthusiasts have fun !!!

Twiggy..320 Kbps

 Here's "Twiggy" of  M&S fame & Model of "The Swingin'60's" doing quite a pleasant job of singing some "Country & West" style songs 1977 is the date !!....around this time I think she must have starred in the "Ken Russell" film "The Boy Friend" which was a "Musical" wonder what came first this L/P or the film !!!......anyway she does do a pretty good job with the songs best one being "20/20 Hindsight"....I think she did do another L/P and released some singles and had a minor hits with "Here I Go Again" and "Vanilla Ole"

Kiki Dee..320 Kbps

 This L/P is a early 80's release of "Kiki's" full of original songs....except for one which she sings with "Elton John"....Track 2 Side One".....As I have said before she in my opinion is one of Britain's unrated singers and we did have quite a few in the 60's 70's & 80's !!....So if you like you music with a lot of originality this could be the one for you...great track is "Wild Eyes"

Ella Fitzgerald..320Kbps

 Here's Ella in her element singing with only an Organ and Drums....gone is the restraint when she sings with an "Orchestrated Orchestra"and has to follow some kind rules....This is the "Ella In Concert Mode" just as I remember seeing her many times....To me there are two kind of Ella's... One the great interpreter of the "Songbooks"and the other when she always seems to let rip and enjoy herself...all you have to do is listen to the many concert L/P's that she has released to get what I am talking about.....Glad that she did "Mack The Knife" all the way through without the "forgetting the words" bit that she did on the L/P "Ella In Berlin"...that would have been "contrived" and missing the point.....You only get gems like that spontaneously....This L/P was made in 1978 about that time her voice began to change and the "sweet notes" as Ella herself called them were begining to disapear.....The last time I saw her in concert was with "Count Basie" and she was suffering with her legs.....When she came on stage she was supported and escorted by him.....But the concert was a knockout....Nooooooo there never will be another Ella !!!!!
