Can I use this as an excuse to retell my favourite Helen Shapiro story? Thanks!View attachment 27128
As best I can remember, Helen Shapiro was my first celebrity crush, but by the time I was old enough to buy my own records I guess her star had faded and I never did own any of her music - until now.
I had no idea that she had done so much, or that her range was so wide - both vocally and in style of material. All I really remember a couple of radio hits.
I think my favourites here are her covers of the hits of the 60s. The combination of those songs and that voice is still irresistible.
Great purchase, i still want to buy this album on cd, but never get to it, i still hope Julia Andrews would release a nice compilation cd with all her famous songs from movies, but i gues i need to buy those cd's from her movies to get those songs from the movies.
Is that an investment of sorts or is it one of those me-wanna-have-have things?
According to the Amazon UK page for this album it's a "#1 Best Seller in Hip-Hop & Rap".
That's another box ticked for Barbra, then.
