Frank Sinatra.

It seems that the record company decided to do a "Mix" of Sinatra's singles on this L/P or so it seems !! starting with a "Swinger" then a slow "Ballad"all thro' the L/P... all orchestrations by "Nelson Riddle" from the "Capitol" stable !!

1. High Hopes
2. Talk To Me
3. French Foreign Legion
4. To Love And Be Loved
5. River Stay Way From My Door

Caterina Valente.

This is the first of two that Caterina recorded on the "Pye" label in about 1975 when she was married to "Roy Budd" who she married in 1971 and divorced in 1980...This L/P was produced by "Roy Budd" and on "Side One" all the tracks but one were written by him....Its Caterina in a quiet laid back voice which shows just how a good singer she is....."Side Two" is completely different..she does duets with her brother "Silvio" on two tracks...Three tracks are taken from a live performance in "Germany"....unfortunatly the recordings are not to good ( Sound Wise ) which is a pity because I like "live" recordings !!....And she does a very brave recording of "We've Only Just Begun" orchestra just her singing... like acapella...and does a great job....not many singers of today would be brave enough to do that!!!! IMHO !!!!!

1. My Little Friend
2. A Day Alone With You

Cashman & West.

This is the first L/P from these guys...Most of the songs are written by them and they are very good....If I had to describe their style of vocals I would say think a cross betwen "Simon & Garfunkle" and "Harry Nilsson" and you have them !!

1. Maury
2. Rock Me To Your Music
3. A man Can't Always Be
4. I Could Feel The Morning
5. The Dutchman

1. New York Woman
2. Fly Away
3. Tuna Fish Song
4.Three Stones From The Sun
5. Lifesong

3. Tuna Fish Song.


I think that this one could be one of Nilsson's non comercial efforts....It certainly has a lot of guest musicians...produced by him and all the tracks are his own work....Got that "West Indies" "Jamaica" feel to....It took me quite a while to work out the Title of the L/P...thought it was French....then one day "Duh" it !!!

This has been recorded as Track 1 all the first side...most of the tracks run into one another 
Side 2 is Tracks 2 to 6 ...
