Shirley Bassey-Is Really Something

Funky Shirley Bassey! This is a great set tof Shirley's groove-happy work cut in the late 60s -- hip tunes arranged by UK easy maestro Johnny Harris, best known for his fantastic work on the Stepping Stones record under his own name, forever a beathead classic! Features the great, funky big band version of "Light My Fire" -- one of Shirley's best tunes ever, and a cut that's been sampled and remixed often in recent years! Also includes the breakbeat version of "Spinning Wheel", and the cuts "My Way", "Sea & Sand", "What About Today?", "You & I", "Easy To Be Hard", "Life Goes On" and "Yesterday I Heard The Rain". © 1996-2008, Dusty Groove America, Inc.

Note:The Volume Might Be Low or High Im Not Sure
I Brought A Cord From Guitar Center ($6 And Some Change)
I Recorded this Using My Old Record Player But It Sounds Real Good
I Spent Time Adjusting the Volume and Recorded it Off of Audacity

Maynard Ferguson-Conquistador

I Present to you
My First Vinyl Post By Me
im Going up to The College
so this wont be the last vinyl post
anyway here is the review......

"Maynard was shrewd, and Maynard was quick, and he managed to beat almost everyone to the punch -- sorry -- when he recorded the theme from Rocky and watched it rise to No. 28 on the pop charts. As blatant as Ferguson's rendition is, it was still the best rendition of the Bill Conti tune of the time (a lot better than the composer's own No. 1 version), and MF's heroic propensity for high notes and underdog status as a hitmaker does make it easy to link him with his celluloid counterpart. It is also the best track on an otherwise overloaded Jay Chattaway production where the combination of the chrome-plated Chattaway hand and list of noted supporting players (George Benson Joe Farrell Bob James the young Jon Faddis Julian Priester Harvey Mason etc.) nearly overwhelms the MF big band and even MF himself. The title track has a certain flamboyant grandeur emanating both from Ferguson and the electronic brigade that dominate the tune, yet Benson's fluid cameo and MF's obligatos are wasted by the irritating female voices on "Mister Mellow." This record gave MF the largest amount of exposure that he ever had; the Faustian tradeoff is that it often sounds gimmicky today." ~ Richard S. Ginell, All Music Guide

The Deele- Eyes Of A Stranger

With group members Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and Antoine "L.A." Reid's popularity increasing, and their productions skills in demand, it was inevitable that this would be the final album by the urban funk ensemble. The LP featured the very credible "Two Occasions"; as Dee gives a depiction of the song through some metaphoric verses, Babyface tenderly intercedes on the pre-hook in support of Dee's lyric. This is the only song on the album that features Babyface on lead. In spite of its superb arrangement and production, the quiet-storm classic peaked at number four after 24 healthy weeks on the charts even though it was worthy of a number-one ranking. The follow-up single, "Shoot 'em Up Movies," has an arrangement that is reminiscent of the golden doo wop era. The creatively composed number peaked at number ten inside of 15 weeks. ~ Craig Lytle, All Music Guide
