This is the guy who wrote the hit "Classical Gas"and he does another version of it on this L/P..I have posted another "Mason Williams" L/P earlier and it has been downloaded 97 times so I guess some of you out there have given it a listen !!..This L/P is just as good so PEEPS don't be shy and give it a go....Apart from "Classical Gas"can't say that I have not heard of any other of his tracks that have become Hits.....A fantastic track is "Manha De Carnival" its a "Cool" L/P !!

Barbra Streisand

   Now then !!! I have a bit of an issue with this L/P.....BUT before I go into it I have to tell you that it has my all time favourite "Streisand" track and also my second favourite one on it !!
that is...No 1 all time great track..."The Kind Of Man A Woman Needs" No 2..."He Touched Me"....both of these are "Barbra" at her best !!!!......Now comes the moans....I wish that the producers had toned down the orchestra... on some of the tracks I think that it seems like the vocals and orchestra where trying to outdo one another to see who could be louder !!....It is from a TV special show....maybe it's taken from that but I doubt it...I think that Barbra would have gone into the studio to record the tracks...OR maybe I have a faulty interested if any one out there who has the L/P has a pristine one !!...and is different !!
