Hard to get Gisele Mackenzie

To me Gisele Mackenzie kind of sounds like Rosemary Clooney. That's a good thing. I didn't care for her biggest hit Hard to get, it was too much of a novelty, but I like this cd. It has good singing on it. I love The Star you wished upon last night. Her cover of Hey There is good too. She was on Your Hit Parade for years. I had a fun time watching episodes of it and watching her appearances.

Tammy Wynette The First Lady

This is worth it alone for the song Sally Trash. As far as I know it's not a song on cd and it's really fun. I think it's one of her best songs.

Tammy Wynette Take me to your world

Tammy Wynette had a couple of amazing songs in the 70's like Womanhood and He Loves me all the way but her albums weren't very good then. It seemed like there was a solid song on the first track and the rest were fillers. Her 60's albums are a different story. They are worth searching for. In this album, Take me to your world and the old fashioned I don't wanna play house are the hits here. They're well sung and memorable. She does good covers of Jackson ain't a very big town and Cry.
