Louis Amstrong's What a Wonderful Wolrd

Louis Armstrong’s best 20 Golden Songs
A 1986 MCA CD made in Japan
One of the best favourite jazz songs I play most frequently
That Include
La Vie En Rose.
Takes Two to Tango April in Portugal
When the Saints go marching in (live version)
Only you
All bets Favourite “what a wonderful world!

If you do not listen to jazz, or you may not have idea on what jazz music is, try this and I am sure you will have a different point of view onJazz.

"What a wonderful world" became world’s popular song and led to more people understand what Jazz music was not until it was included in the soundtrack for the film "Good Morning, Vietnam" in 1987, and, thanks to its new found exposure in the film, it landed at #1 in Australia, becoming Armstrong's biggest hit there. In the film, the song plays over a montage of bombings and other violence.

This 1986 CD is not easy to find but still available.

Teresa Tang

Teresa Tang is one of my favourite Artist for Vinyl audition. Her Voice is like fairy. She had made a lot of Japanese Pressing LPs. Those Japanese LP From Taurus or Polydor is having a very quiet background.

Japanese used to keep their Collection in very good condition. Now There seem more and more Difficult to find her LP in Japan.
I used to have a good friend who stays 40% his time in Japan searching LP for sales in HK, he has been keen in searching Teresa Tang LP for me, but the rpice is becoming Higher. It has been double in 6 years time. I have collected about 80 LPs from Teresa Tang!
