Al Bowlly with Monia Liter

Open Playlist

Al's collaboration with Monia Liter produced some of his finest renditions. Without the restrictions of an orchestral score, Al was able to give free rein to his creativity. The quality and sensitivity of the Bowlly voice comes through strongly in these 10 tracks.

One of the gems in this collection is the recording of You Oughta be in Pictures in which Al gets to sing an extended version of the Dana Suesse lyrics.

The Playlist Problem Resolved

Open Geraldo Playlist

I finally worked out why the previous post was playing the wrong playlist.

I was using a java script to open a pop-up window with the player embedded in it. It seems that the main page of the blog can only support one pop-up on each page. I had two posts with separate pop-ups. They played perfectly from within the post but, when accessed from the main blog page, blogger always reverted to the earliest playlist it could find.

So, no more pop-ups. Now we have a new solution, which simply opens a new page for each playlist. It works correctly no matter where the playlist is opened from.

This post contains the geraldo playlist. The next post will contain ten solo performances with Monia Liter at the piano.
