28th December 2012
Good Morning from a dreary Brixham I am beginning to wonder when the sun is going to  shine again! I have a question today from Mark in the  United States from my EBay messages.
Some years ago, I was listening to some of my parents' old LP records. I happened to discover the very most beautiful rendition of "Where Or When" that I've ever heard. For the life of me, I wish that I'd noted the names of the singers and orchestra! Recently, I've been trying (and failing) to find/identify that particular recording / performance / rendition / version. It was done by an orchestra, possibly with "strings", a vocal group, a male lead singer, and, possibly, a female lead singer. This performance and recording must date to the 1940s or 1950s. I can't believe that it's not the standard, most famous rendition. Unfortunately, it spoiled me for anything else. (I, for one, am underwhelmed by Peggy Lee's version.) Any chance that you know which recording I'm talking about?

Well I searched the web cause I am not older to know and I came up Leona Horne. Can anyone else come up with any other names it could be? No prizes for any right answer just a bit of fun to re-start the Blog.

A mix year sales wise on EBay but for now I will keep going like to go multichannel onto amazon and will be looking at HMV marketplace as this does seem an obvious choice to sell music. Digital does impact it but still think there is enough people out there wanting the physical format. Around 65 / 35 split at the moment according to Music Week. As it is to continue to be a part time project / business then it does seem to be a lot of hard work to do this.

The Blog will be back regularly in 2013 I will make a better effort to write a bit more so stay tuned .... its only just begun!
