    You are missing out on Gaga then. She is the real deal. Even though she has this "head in the clouds" persona going on with a tiny voice(when she talks)...her voice is the real deal.

    Yeah, that's a beautiful song, and beautifully performed. Maybe my favorite of hers.

    Read the story to which I linked...look at my avatar...and I think you can figure out that I agree with you on that one, Dick! :D :thumbsup:

    Sam: I had that same revelation a couple of years ago when I heard this particular duet:



    She IS the real deal.

    Thanks for the post, you are correct and it's indeed a true golden oldie. I just wish more songs from that era existed because it's VERY hard to find these 78 tracks for download or on CD for that matter. Most of the surviving original 78s are even more rare to find. The ones I have are so extremely fragile, you can practiclly break them just by handling genly. Actually, I do have several and they are like very thin and fine China. One false move or sudden jerk by accident and they are in a hundred pieces. Not to mention how darn expensive they are if you find some surviving copies.

    If you know of any place to find tracks like this that are quite rare, please post or send me an IM. Always on the lookout for some real music to add to my collection.

    i went to see linda ronstadt 5-7 years in a row in the 70s to early 80s ?

    at the time, the theaters were open to the outside - most enjoyable concerts that i have ever been to.

    just found out that she has parkinsons, and can no longer sing.

    Not everybody's cup of tea, but if you got 52 minutes...

    But listen for at least 5...



    If you stick it out to the 25 minute mark, a very special surprise...

    What I find rude is someone yelling out a song requests at a formal concert. What ... like the artist doesn't have a song set selected? If they want requests, they'll ask. I certainly didn't pay money to hear some yahoo shout out his worthless requests. The artist needs to gain some control or it can just get worse and worse. Yell out a song request at a James Taylor concert and see what happens to you. First, he will patronizingly explain that pretty much everyone there at the concert has song requests and such and he can't do them all. Then he will explain to the offending individual that he has something called a "set list" and that he doesn't just pick out songs to sing on the fly as to not confuse the band on what the next song might be. Then he will pick up the very large double sided set list in front of him with the songs in BIG letters and shows it to the audience as he turns this individual into laughing stock material. Now, if it occurs to you that JT does not need songs printed in a huge font *for him* but has this so big so he can show a good deal of the audience the songs (often including the requested song) so he can have at the song requesters ... congrats.

    Back on topic ... there have been some terrific vocalists mentioned ... but ..,. something like 228 posts in a Home Theatre Forum and not a single mention for Shirley Bassey? Unbelievable.

    I agree. Plus I've heard Linda in interviews talk about that, too: people need to have more respect for the music.

    Well, I don't know if it is the "most beautiful voice" but I love the sound of Nico Case's voice...

    Talk about great Letterman performances...

    (this performance is noteworthy cause the FCC wanted to fine Letterman. His response was "That is the song lyric, F-off.")

    She must be on some huge publicity blitz. I saw this image yesterday connected to an interview with her:

    Not where I can copy/paste...But Revenge(finally watched it last night) had a great song, with a lead that deserves mention here. London Grammar's song Hey Now. Listened to snippets of their album...ordered.
