Welcome to The Tuna Melt Music Sharity Blog!

It is here that I post old records that I've ripped
to Mp3 format (and grouped in .ZIP files) via File Sharing Sites,
album cover scans and, sometimes,
somewhat coherent ramblings related to said shares.

None of the shares here are "borrowed" from other blogs.
All of the items shared are rips of Out-of-Print
(or, at least, very difficult to get)
Vinyl Records from my own collection.

Come on in. Look around.
Scroll downward to find available links.
I hope you find something you like.

If you don't,
you can always come back later, as the variety
of what is made available should be pretty wide-ranging.

The Anita Kerr Singers: Reflect (on the Hits of Burt Bacharach & Hal David)

What's it All About, Anita?

The Anita Kerr Singers (and The Anita Kerr Quartet) were originally based in Nashville and were heavily involved in the creation of the "Countrypolitan" Nashville Sound. Any ideas that they were limited to working in Country Music, however, need to be tossed out immediately. Kerr, herself, was a multi-talented arranger, conductor and producer of a huge number of records of a wide range of styles.

She had moved to Hollywood by the time she recorded this album, in 1969, and was primarily involved in arranging and recording Orchestral Pop material. Combined with the amazing songwriting talents of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, her production on this record is nothing less than astounding.
