Well, I'll break with my recent tradition and be on time for my review this time.
01. "If I had Words" by Scott Fitzgerald & Yvonne Keeley - Like the South American anthematic chorus and the beautiful collage of voices. Both singers really good, a little touch of Elton John and Steve Winwood for Fitzgerald. That was fun, I will be playing it again!
02. "You're My World" by Darryl Braithwaite - Wow, this is a cool record collection, you have Plat! Another great inspiring chorus. Kind of a "Sweet Caroline" kind of song, but maybe not quite as cheesy. Ha ha.
03. "Turn the Page" by Jon English - Ah ah ah. Nobody covers Bob Seger, that's like covering Michael Jackson, can't cover the definitive versions. Still like it because it's a great song. But hey, no need for anyone to re-do "Strawberry Fields Forever", and same with this song. However, I do admit, sounds like Jon English has a good voice, and doesn't do it a total injustice by any means. The orchestral touches are pretty decent.
04. "Hollywood Seven" by Jon English - Interesting theme for a song, enjoy the story and the flow song. Captivating. Definitely a song Roger Daltry should cover on one of his solo albums, he'd probably knock it out of the park too. Sounds a lot like his solo stuff; and definitely his style of singing, which is certainly a great compliment of Jon Stewart's singing.
05. "Lady" by Little River Band - Really nothing to not like in this song. Great singing, harmonies, verse, and chorus. Very romantic song. Quite the classic for sure. The chorus packs a great punch.
Star Rating: 4.6 out of 5 Prime Cuts: "If I Had Words", "Hollywood Seven", "Lady" Bottom Line: I can see where these would definitely be among my favorites in my 45s collection, if I had one.
Great stuff, Platypus, thoroughly enjoyed them. If you're marked down for a next time before the year closes out, then looking forward to it. ha ha.
lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
