I am Very,Very disappointed with this album. I bought it simply because Billy Eckstine wa my "hearthrob" in the 50,s and as i,m now over 70 I thought i would have a quiet moment of reminisence just listening to his vioce again. when i played the first tune i chose(my foolish heart) it was wonderful to hear him sing again and enjoy his lovely sexy voice. Then i landed back to earth as the song cut out long before it was supposed to. I thought it was just a one off but when i triedthe following songs they all did the same. All of me ,I apologise Inthe still of the night and Fools rush in.I noted that the times given on the I-tunes sheet for each record were longer than the times actually given on the top of sheet where you play them.Not one song has a complete ending to it as the time runs out before that can happen. I will contact I-tunes for a refund as the goods are not fit for the purpose for which i bought them.I would definately NOT recommend this record to anyone.
