A touch of nostalgia
Listening to the radio to-day ‘Desert Island Discs’ actually, the guest requested a song by Andy Williams, The theme from Exodus, it was beautiful, the soft yet rich tones of a truly great singer, and a wonderful sad ,powerful song had me transported back in time when there were such ballad singers like this, Frank Sinatra, Vic Damone, Perry Como Matt Munro, Tony Bennett etc. We never hear singers like this any more, and such a pity, as they really made you ‘feel’ the song, and more to the point, you heard every word. My personal favourite was Nat King Cole, he of the velvet caress in his voice. Oh well back to the present, but it’s nice to reminisce.
