Liza Minnelli....320 Kbps

 Liza sings mostly standards on this L/P but the arrangements and style are typically 70's style...this was recorded in 1970 just before she got the part of "Sally Bowles" in the Musical Film"Cabaret"....the songs are by "Kern" "Berlin" "Porter" "Arlen" "Mercer" "Gershwin" so you can see that its the American Songbook Theme.....They are definitely sung different....She does go a bit "frantic"at times but its definitely one of her better recordings !!
Found the video below.....on a couple of plays it went out of sync but seems okay now !!

P.S. I love it when you get a selection of well known songs and they are arranged and performed entirely different from the originals and like nobody else's versions..and Liza and her arranger has just done that !!...Greaaaaaaaat !!!
