Malcolm Roberts

A selection now from the "Power Ballad" singer who should have had more recognition than he had in the late 60's 70's !!!.....Three of the tracks are well known songs and this includes his "Hit""Love Is All"....he should have had more !!!

        2. Living For Life

Sacha Distel

Ooops ! seems we are back on the track of the compilations !!!....Soooo here is that French Guy who co-wrote "The Good Life" singing a selection of  well known hit songs including the one he wrote !! I have said many times before all singers who sing well known songs and standards should put there own stamp on it and do something different with the arrangement's and style... "Sacha" has the saving grace of a "French" accent so I suppose you could say it's different !!!..But unfortunately no surprises !!!...This one has some jumps...Sorry !!
