Now we have a "Magical" effort made possible by the wonders of our "modern technology"
A 46 year old singer Dueting with himself at the age of 15....

 Jones' recording career was temporarily halted when his voice broke at 16. By then he had recorded 16 albums, sold more than six million copies, and sung for Pope John Paul II, the Queen, and the Prince and Princess of Wales in a private recital, as well as presenting numerous children's television programmes. He sang at the wedding of celebrities Bob Geldof and Paula Yates in 1986. Jones also had the distinction of being the first artist to have two classical albums listed simultaneously in the popular music charts, and worked with Leonard Bernstein (Chichester Psalms).

Georgia Brown.320 Kbps

 Looking at my stats I see that I have quite a lot of people from "Australia" and "Russia" having a look at this blog..sooooo just some info about "Georgia Brown" She was the original "Nancy"in "Lional Barts" "Oliver"when it was first put on in London..she was a stage actress and singer she did do some films but mainly stage work...If you "Google" her you will see that she was quite busy..unfortunately she is no longer with us...But back to the L/P it consists of 12 good standard song tracks that she stamps her style on them familar songs but done so different that they seem "New"....and boy does she belt them out !!

P.S. If I were a Vocal Teacher or "Coach" as they are called these days I would definatley use this L/P as a "BenchMarch" and try to get "Georgia" to do a "MasterClass" to all the up and coming Female Singers....But Alas !! I wouldn't know where to start as a "Coach" and unfortunately "Georgia" is no longer with us.....BUT this is still one of the best vocal L/P's of the 60's (1963) to be precise !!!

Marcel Amont.320 Kbps


Now here is a L/P that is definitely different...first its sung in French which will please my 1289 hits from France !!...and by the title you would think that it is about "Operettas" which it is but not as we know them !!...A friend of mine had this for quite a while and kept asking me to have a listen but I didn't fancy it at all so ignored it...but one day it was on when I arrived at his house and was immediately fascinated by it and couldn't believe when he told me what it was and even tho' couldn't under stand a word he was singing I thought it was great...So come on you Anglophile's give it a listen too it's a cool one !!
