Frank Sinatra.


This L/P as you can see from the cover was recorded in London 57 years ago !!..WOW doesn't time fly !!...wish I had a time machine to go back to "Swingin' London" in the 60's..I had a great time there would do it all over again..even the sad times were good !!..anyway enuff of me rattling on and get back to the songs....Sinatra in good voice not a "Swinger" in sight just a nice relaxing set of "Great British Songs"...Must admit tho' hadn't heard of last track !!






5. The Gypsy.

The Walker Brothers.


The Walker Brothers came to life in 1965...3 American guys who were not brothers..."Scott" "John" and "Gary" I think that they had more success in England than the States...This is a Double L/P set that has most of there world wide hits on it....they even had a go at some standard songs and they certainly do a good job with them...namely "Just For a Thrill"
which is a solo by "John" and IMHO is equal to some of the "Jazz" versions by other singers
