Burl Ives - Songs For And About Men Volume 1

Released 1956 the first of 3 EP's of songs about men.


Lesley Miller - Teach Me To Love You / Think Of Rain

This record puzzled me as the Promo label has been stuck on after it was pressed the label is starting to peel underneath is a white label he bits I can see are identical to the pink label it has the same MGM number but no company logo a release date of 01/09/1967 is given.
The only other information I have found out about Lesley Miller is that she sings He Quit Me on the soundtrack of Midnight Cowboy.

Kevin Neill - The Harry Lime Theme / Black Eyes

I found this record while I was going through a bag of recently acquired records after posting the Anton Karas original last week this version hails from 1974, 14 years after the original release.
