Mom's 45s?

SERGIO MENDES & BRAZIL '66 - Night And Day

Mom and dad both loved music, although their tastes were somewhat different from each other. Mom liked classical music, folk and pop music, while dad enjoyed RnB, Jazz and rock selections.
Occasionally, mom would get a record of things she particularly liked. In this case the 45 was bought to help my mom learn to sing a song for some sort of talent event they had at our local church at the time. She sang the A side, The Look Of Love and she sang it pretty well.

Sergio Mendes & Brazil '66 had hits with their sound that bridged latin jazz/bossa nova with contemporary pop music.

I preferred the flip side that featured a great version of the Cole Porter standard, Night And Day. Let's hear it now.

We're Back!

Greetings music lovers.
After a bit of a hiatus after the DivShare service went down, I am happy to say that Dad's 45s & 78s is back.
I am in the process of restoring the previous links and will resume new postings some time after all the old links are restored. I am starting with the most recent links and working my way backward.
Stay tuned and happy listening!
