Micky Dolenz
Broadway Micky

Kid Rhino - R2 71676
CD-Rip 320 Kbbs
Released 1994

Micky Dolenz's follow up of his 1991's "Micky Dolenz Puts You to Sleep" album. This time more uptempo songs. This long lost album is chocked full of Broadway & Hollywood show tunes but luckely Micky doesn't copy the original versions. The songs all have new arrangements and Micky sings them if he wrote them himself (he must have learned that from his old master, Harry Nilsson).

Strangely enough most reviews tells you that Micky was not able to duplicate the wonderful spirit from "puts you to sleep" but I'm sure the reviewers haven't listen to this album once.
The songs are wonderful, the arrangements are great. Dolenz's voice is pleasant and diverse. You will love his take on these classic songs.

Thanks for posting this hard to find album, but why the .ace files? .mp3 files are so much easier to use, especially for the average pc user. But I am grateful you posted this. Thanks again.

They are Mp3 but packed with ace. You can actually play the ace-files in f.i. winamp (or with any other media-aplication if you rename .ace to .mp3)
The right way to do it is to Un-ace the file. You can do that with WinAce or WinRar. Both can easely been downloaded.
