Ginger Rogers

Re-Post Requested By Jack Garder

 Well now I have mixed feeling about this one...Its obvious that "Gingers" voice is not as good as it was 35 plus years ago when she did those great films with "Fred Astaire"...She made this one is London in 1978 according to the back sleeve....I ask myself should she have left it alone and let the record company issue her "Soundtrack" vocals !!....but I suppose as an entertainer the show must go on !!...Its a pity that the great singers can't keep their voices at their peak all there lives....only a handfull do !!.....But it's great to hear them their talent always shines tho'.....and as for this L/P its cool to hear the old songs given modern arrangments....

Thanks Bob For This One !!!
