Update On Links

March 18, 2013 - I'm now using various file sites with varying success. With over 200 albums listed here, obviously I cannot upload everything at once. So if you're dying to hear something, please post a comment on that particular post and I will move it up in the priority queue. Enjoy!

Whatchya Gonna Swing Tonight?

 I love a good melody, and there's a load of tunes here to keep you whistling for a while. Or at least until my next post. :-) I think they could have done without two consecutive Crosby solo tunes but will forgive the duet with Connee Boswell because it's Connee Boswell. I never tire of Tommy Dorsey's Marie, and somewhere I have a live version featuring Sinatra that I'll try to locate if and when all of our things arrive via container. Which reminds me, at some point thereafter I plan to post the four cds of complete Dorsey/Sinatra recordings (the sampler cd was posted some time back). In any case, I'm pretty sure this is the last 'Hits of' disc in my collection. Enjoy. +

What You got against Der Bingle? If weight of popularity of the times is anything to go by he needs at least three items (the Connee item included) in a representative selection of this type. It's a d--n good collection and thanks but up with the old groaner!

Hey, I like the groaner too. Check out the tags for the box set and more. What I really like about the Hits of .. series is that ASV features artists other than those that had the biggest hit of a given song. Another is that ASV doesn't focus solely on American artists, unlike most cds produced on this side of the pond.
