Des O'Connor.

So now we have a "Golden Hour " of Des's voice also from "Bob"....It's fine and as the saying goes "It Does What It Say's On The Tin".....any of you out there who don't get that Can't watch much Television !!!!

        2. And I Love You So

Bing Crosby

Another one from "Bob"..naturally a "Belgium" release because as you know that's where "Bob" comes from !!!...this L/P features "Bing's" original tracks no re-recording this time and you have a "Bonus" of "The Andrew Sisters" popping up now and then !!!....great nostalgic music that will never fade !!!

        7. You Are My Sunshine

Barry And Eileen

Here's one from "Bob"of a "Belgium" Duo who I have not heard of before...The songs seem to be all original ones co-written by a certain "B Corbett" could it be "Barry"??...also his voice reminds me of someone I can't quite put my finger on !!..any suggestions !!! you can see by the back cover not much information about this competent Duo....very pleasant listening !!

      2. Town Of A Thousand Cafes

Buddy Greco

Quick swim from Over The Pond to the "Channel" to the home of "Bob" for this one !!!
A compilation that to my knowledge only has his one "Hit" worldwide I'm talking of....I'm sure that "Buddy's" fans will say all of them are !!!
Apart from the misleading Title (As Usual) this is a great swinging L/P well worth a listening too !!
