Pal Joey. 320. Kbps

Sorry for all the scatches snaps crackles and pops on this L/P..Its one of a few I lent out years ago and they were returned like it...even the covers were ripped had to get the above from "google" but couldn't find the back....That was a lesson I learned not to lend out L/P's !!
It is of course the soundtrack from the film complete with all the orchestration tracks
Sinatra sings on 6 tracks Kim Novac on 2 and Rita Hayworth on 2....Its a good memory of a classic film !!
P.S. Did find the back but not a very good one !!
