From Russia With Love - 1963

Alternatingly suspenseful and exciting tracks fly by with poor Matt Monroe singing a love ballad somewhere in the middle. Perhaps the playing order needs work. Link in comments.

Howard Keel - With Love - 1984

Howard was MGM's favorite baritone of the fifties and starring in 11 musicals. He started touring and doing solo recordings in 1983 but never broke into the top ten. These *tunes* are pleasant even so.

Richard Harris - The Yard Went On Forever...

A TRAMP SHINING and this album came from the same sessions. If you liked TRAMP you may well like this because the composer, musicians, and sopranos are the same. On the other hand, this album went OOP and TRAMP did not. Try your luck right *here*.

Blade Runner - Esper Edition

This is a rip of the LIMITED-EDITION( not really ) bootleg CD set. It is perhaps the best of the boot remixes although there are many others. Play it and go see BLADE RUNNER 2049 - now in theaters.

Mark, a friend of the blog, found *THIS* site with a ton of Blade Runner Esper-Whatevers. Thanks Mark. If anybody decides one of these is actually a treasure, let us know.

Off The Charts - The Song-Poem Story - 2003

This documentary is about song-poems and the companies that transform them into records for a fee, and about the customers who wrote the lyrics, paid the fees, and had a dream. It's funny and uncomfortable. Link in comments. Teaser; Enjoy a short song-poem music-video right HERE.

Hear The Beatles Tell All - 1964

Kismet Soundtrack - 1955

The Broadway musical got scrubbed and became a more tasteful MGM film for the entire family. In this one Ann Blyth and Vic Damone fall in love while Howard Keel and Delores Gray fall into something more sophisticated. We all go home happily once Howard dispatches the evil Sebastian Cabot. No operatic voices were used in the making of this musical which is something you might really like. Link in comments.

Kismet - 1967 - Television

Another musical production for television brought to you by Armstrong Flooring, maker of Excelon Tile. Jose Ferrer sings well enough and Barbara Eden swivels her way into your heart. The more suggestive numbers are subtracted from this Family Presentation. This videotape rip has the Armstrong commercials and some lost sync. About 420MB. Link in comments.
