For more information on this and his other solo albums see - https://parisrecords.co.uk/ 

Ace Records have an interesting album with Scott Walker presenting Jacques Brel songs alongside the originals  sung by the composer. You will find classics here such as 'If You Go Away'  and 'Jackie', presented in the two very different styles. 









From Zone Records comes a DVD from the 60's LIVERPOOL SOUND. It features Gerry and the Pacemakers, Brian Poole and the Tremeloes, Dusty Springfield and Gene Pitney - a classic TV show. More about the DVD at www.zonerecordsltd.com 

Jasmine Records have a Tony Bennett release out later this month and it includes classics such as 'I Wanna Be Around' and 'I Left My Heart in San Francisco'. It's a double CD, so great value from one of the classiest singers.

I have been in the media business now for 53 years starting out with local newspapers in Surrey and then Record Mirror and Music Week, part of the Billboard group. I then joined Pye Records/ATV and Stoll-Moss Theatres at the end of the 60’s. In 1971 I moved to BBC Radios 1 & 2 in the early 70’s and then worked for Radio Luxembourg/Atlantic 252 in a management capacity and then ran local commercial stations in Glasgow, London and the Isles of Man and Lewis. My programme is currently broadcast by a mix of FM and internet stations and I am now Chairman of Isles FM and a Board consultant to another. In 2002 we had a world exclusive on Frank Sinatra on Isles FM - see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/1790935.stm
