I could listen to this L/P all night and have done in the past !...Why oh why didn't the record company continue with a series and followed it up with Volume 2 ect...they certainly have enough songs to do it !!!....All the tracks are taken from the MGM musical films from 1937 onwards and MGM made loads of them....Its a sad fact that most of the singers on this L/P are no longer with us.... BUT its great that we can remember them by Film & Record !!...All the tracks are gems !!

Kiki Dee

This is an early Kiki Dee L/P.....she sings well on it and does a great job on all the well known songs that are there...BUT the A&R men or whoever it was that did choose the songs unfortunately didn't do a very good job....I realise that these tracks must have been Kiki's first single's.....There is no details on the back sleeve so I realy can't be sure.....I am only glad that  Elton John got her signed up on his label "Rocket"and produced the great L/Ps that I have already Posted on here !!....Not forgeting the great one she did for "Tamla Motown"...

The Four Freshmen....320 Kbps

These guy's along with "The Hi Lo's" are the best in "Jazz" orientated vocal groups I think that they set the "Benchmark" for all the  Jazz groups that came after !!....It was "Stan Kenton"who first heard them and recomended to the record company....I believe that they are still performing today...but not the original guy's...I think that they have gone through quite a number of personal changes but I believe the "Freshman" Sound is still there !!!
