Hi John,

First of all, it's great to see you back! :smile: Interestingly, Laura told me that in all honesty she didn't care at all for the 2 tracks from the Japanese tribute albums, More Than Just A Memory and Time Strangers.

Thank you. It has been far too long.

I don't know why she didn't like those songs. I love them. Perhaps she didn't enjoy the recording of them?
Off the top of your head, what other songs did she not like?

Wow, that's interesting that she didn't care for them.
probably a stupid question, but was she a fan of Mayo Okamoto (had to Wikipedia search the name, haha)?
I presume that LB knew about her. But do you know if she volunteered to do the tribute?
Thanks,
George :happy-wavemulticolor:

What about "Come Into My Life" she did a duet with Joe Esposito. Not on any album I know of.

Hi there AXY138, we are both from Ontario :greetings-wavingyellow:
That is interesting that Laura sang some songs that she kind of didn't like. But I suppose that we all have favorites, and you need a certain number of songs to make an album. I remember hearing or reading somewhere that Laura didn't listen to her own songs much, and that she kind of disliked some of her previous work. We develope and change throught the course of our lives, and things fall out of favor in our mind.

Referring back to a question asked in the discussion, are you aware of any other songs that were not favorites of Laura, Kathy?

Don't worry, we won't let it influence our listening patterns any!

Perhaps she wanted to fix something in the songs and they refused to do it.

I can imagine it, maybe it was like with the remixes or the last songs on the unreleased album as Laura passed away... I know it from myself, that sometimes I'd like to do something even 10 times to get a better result of this and sometimes I do not really care about a thing I have to do.. I just do it to get it over me. Maybe Laura wanted to put on these album other songs, that she liked more than these 2 tracks listened above but she was forced to record these ones - in that way it does not make any fun to record music - it is "just" recording...

Although I do not really think, that these songs are that bad at all :-D

Getting back to the topic... I love "Hollywood Vives" and "Fool's Affair" and than "Hot Night" from Ghoustbusters/Automan and most of all - Sin Hablar (duet with luis miguel) - I think the most romantic and sensual song ever recorded by Laura :-D

Hi all,
have discovered a new LB video on YT called "Don't Walk Away"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adlOnc8KKxo
It's really great, posted by 'kamiglio'!
Never heard it before, but highly recommended!
