  1. Although I think I can understand WHY Shadow of Your Smile and Make the World a Little Younger were left out I totally disagree that they were because they are superb in my opinion. However, When You Smile is not so good, partly because the song is about as naff as they come but the way she sings the repeated ‘smile’ ‘smile’ smile’ in that very affected way is so off-putting and she doesn’t do it all the time. It could have been so much better if she had moderated the pronounciation. That said, almost everything about the ’79 series was marvellous. Not keen on some of the location stuff but it was the 1970’s! The studio performances were out of this world and too many to single out one. What we would give to have this series remastered and released on DVD!!! Thanks for the postings.


  2. Thanks for showing these; no reason I can think of that any of these songs should have been left out except for maybe the time factor? Anyway, we have them here now – wonderful stuff!
