Jane Powell.320.Kbps


  This is the original sleeve of the L/P...a bit battered and torn but it has been a favourite and played for the last 50 odd years...

Lita Roza.320.Kbps




 Here is a great L/P by a classy lady... love the arrangments particular on "The Other Women"
Nina Simone done a great job with it on her Album "Nina At The Town Hall"....Lita's version I recon equals it...I remember meeting her in the 50's even bought her a coffee in a coffee bar after she had done a concert at our local concert hall....She was one of the singers with the "Ted Heath Band" along with "Dickie Valentine & Dennis Lotis"....They were in the pub along with most of the band members...Ah sweet memories !!...Anyway back to reality...I also have most of the tracks on a compilation CD....BUT they have mucked about with the sound.. the clarity in her voice seems to be missing and also if you notice they seemed to have recorded her with a very slight echo...that's missing and all of the tracks seem to be flat...If anybody is interested in hearing the difference I will be glad to post it..This L/P was recorded in 1958 !!


P.S. great to find a video from YouTube of one of the tracks below....Pity there is not more!!..This is also a great L/P that does get played loads of times even now 61 Years later !!!
