Charly McClain

Charly McClain - Anthology This is an excellent collection of the 70's country singer. She had a cute pleasant voice. There are many wonderful songs like Men, Sleepin' with the Radio on, Paradise Tonight, and Who's Cheating Who. I wish more of her work was on cd. I originally bought the budget cd Pure Country but I decided that I wanted more. I'll probably end up buying a couple of her albums.

Ciao Bella!

Various Artists - Ciao Bella! Italian Girl Singers of the 1960s This is a pretty good collection of Italian girl singers from the 60's. I'm a bit disappointed by the Mina songs. She's made better. However it's a good introduction with people like Isabella Ianetti, Nada, and Patty Pravo. Un amore inutile and Baluba Shake are my favorites. I feel that Italian girl singers aren't given enough credit. A number of them had cds out a couple of years like Wilma Goich but are out of print. I hope this collection makes companies realize they should released their music again.

Lesley Duncan

Lesley Duncan - Earth Mother Although I did a post about Lesley Duncan years ago I've decided to review another one of her albums. Lesley Duncan was a talented singer songwriter with an unique alto voice. This got on cd a few years back and if you can I recommend getting a copy. It's a solid album to listen to the whole way through. The songs I really like are Queen to your King and Thunder.
