Shirley Bassey....320 Kbps

Here is a compilation of Shirley's taken from some of her L/P's from 1959 to 1966 before she had trouble with her tonsils and had to have them removed....That made a slight difference to her voice not that you could notice....the power and tone and clarity was still there as they still are today after 50 odd years of belting the songs out !!!

1. Who Are We
2. Tonight
3. Ev'rytime We Say Goodbye
4. Moon River
5. All Of Me
6. A Foggy Day
7. If You Love Me

1. Imagination
2. So In Love
3. I'm In The Mood For Love
4. How Can You Tell
5. Love Is A Many Splendoured Thing

Barbra Streisand....320 Kbps

This is also an early recording of Barbra's....if I remember correctly it was a TV Special that she did in about 1965....most of her early work was straight forward and un-complicated...her later recordings tended to be a bit over produced but saying that she is still a great singer and has made some great L/P's & CD's.....Great version of "Someone To Watch Over Me" and who would of thought that "I've Got No Strings" from "Disney's" "Pinocchio" would sound as good as it does !!!

P.S. It always has puzzled me why they seemed to be 2 front covers to this L/P and it has just dawned on me DUH!!....Side One relates to the cover above and Side Two cover below is Barbra in grown up mode and the songs reflect that !!!.....That took over 50 years for the penny to drop !!!

1. My Name Is Barbra
2. A Kid Again / I'm Five
3. Jenny Rebecca
4. My Pa
5. Sweet Zoo
6. Where Is The Wonder

1. I Can See It
2. Someone To Watch Over Me
3. I've Got No Strings
4. If You Were The Only Boy In The World
5. Why Did I Choose You
6. My Man

3. I've Got No Strings

This L/P to me epitomises the sound and feel of the 70's Music and features one of the best Instrumental hit record of the 70's....I am of course talking about "Loves Theme" what an arrangement all those twanging sliding guitars definatly got the "Barry White" stamp on it and "The Love Unlimited Orch" sound you can tell who it is as soon as a track starts !!!

Eydie Gorme....320 Kbps

I think that there might be a pressing fault on the first side of this L/P or someone has played it with a knitting needle!!!....She has a hiss on all the words that begin with "S" to quote one of her tracks on here "I'm Sorry".....It was'nt new when I got it so I could'nt return it to the shop for a replacement....the second side is okay...Apart from that Eydie does a good job going "Country Style"

P.S. I think CBS should have titled this "Gorme Swings Country Style" !!!!

1. I Really Don't Want To Know
2. I Can't Help It
3. You Don't Know Me
4. I'm Sorry
5. The End Of The World
