Mexicali Rose,


Lara's Theme from "Doctor Zhivago",


Mona Lisa,

Sweet Leilani,

Gigi and Jean.

"The Album is something special, not that it was planned that way; it just happened. Perhaps the combination of ten beautiful songs about ten beautiful girls was all ythe inspiration I need. In any event, these cuts turned out to be some of the warmest most feeling playing I've even done on record. Best of all, the piano just seemed to play itself! When that happens; when I can not get out of the way of whatever pours out of me during a recording session, then I know something special has happened". Warmest Regards, Rogers Williams.

MCA Records 1976.

To me that is more than ten beautiful girls...

Xhou Xuan's most beautiful pieces of Song

Zhou Xuan 1920-1957 A Shanghai Singer and actress. Who had made many memorial and melodic song... of the 1930’s This record was made from the original master mold plate of 1930-1940 stored in Shanghai Record company , passed to Pauler Acoustics Company in Germany for Further DMM master audio processing and touch up.

 Then sent to Pallas Group pressing company in Germany for mass production, The Vinyl is quiet, you would bother it is mono, it would create a lot of old Memory through the easy going melodic of the famous song like Shanghai Night (EMI B966 Record No. EMI 3565A Recording date Sep 21 1946, issue Date Jan 15 1947). And many other beautiful tunes! 

You would be amazed on what kind of sweet musical that was picked up by the tiny stylus drawing along the swinging grooves on the slow moving 33-1/3 RPM Disk… That is the Analogue Music … from the beginning to the End, pure Analogues… for all kind of sweet nostalgic memory of your first love. 

That warm tune is a kind of attitudes towards the master piece of the song writer sung by the most famous and Pretty Shanghais Singer Zhou Xuan in front of the Vacuum Tubes Microphone… in the Audio Recording room in Shanghai… 

The world was jealousy about this little talented singer and took her life away at only 37 years by a tumour in her brain! 

That was the tragedy.., for my idol.

Eric Clapton - Unplugged / After Midnight

Eric Clapton's Unplugged was responsible for making acoustic-based music, and Unplugged albums in particular, a trend in the early '90s. Clapton's concert was not only one of the finest Unplugged episodes, but also some of the finest music he had recorded in years. The music was straightforwardt, alternating between his pop numbers and traditional blues songs. The result was some of the most genuine, heartfelt music the guitarist has ever committed to tape. And some of his most popular - the album sold over seven million copies in the U.S. Unplugged won the 1993 Grammy Awards for Album of the Year, Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. "Tears In Heaven" won the Grammy for Song of the Year and "Layla" was named Best Rock Song. Mastered at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Two 180-gram LPs pressed at Pallas. Packaged in a two-pocket direct-to-board gatefold jacket at Furnace.
