Angel Eyes | Tamara Walker | Including Angel Eyes (Schjolin and Terao Remix) & Angel Eyes (S.A.F. Remix) - Bonus Track | SALE

BOMBAY BOLLYWOOD DANCE PARTY HIP HOP BHANGRA NON STOP HINDI DJ REMIX
This review is from: Angel Eyes (Audio CD)

Having been a fan of Tamara's since COYOTE UGLY and ANGEL EYES, I was waiting patiently for this album....now that it is here...it is both good and bad. Her voice soars with a haunting sweetness and she can deliver any song with excellent power! I am dissapointed that there are only 8 songs on the album with one remix of ANGEL EYES as the 9th track....a full length album generally has at least 10 tracks.....it is sad the producers chose to short change people on the world of Tamara Walker! One good side is that it is not the price of regularly priced cd's because of this.....the album has pop ballads and upbeat numbers with the country sounding tracks being DIDN'T WE LOVE (original version appears in COYOTE UGLY while this version has more of a beat to it......), THE STELLAR...CRY LIKE MEMPHIS (THE BEST TRACK IN MY OPINION), FALLING FOR ME, THE ONE......overall a great album from a promising talent.

  1. Angel Eyes (Schjolin and Terao Remix)
  2. Bring Back My Heart
  3. Circle Of Love
  4. Didn't We Love
  5. Falling For Me
  6. Cry Like Memphis
  7. The One
  8. If Only
  9. Angel Eyes (S.A.F. Remix) - Bonus Track

WBRi Landmark | 250 Days Of Non-Stop Kolkata Bangla Live Radio Broadcast

Listen to Free Kolkata FM Radio Online Streaming Webcast Internet Radio Live

Today marks the first time that we have had our live Kolkata bangla internet radio broadcast continuously on for 250 days. As you will see from the server uptime in the picture above, the live broadcast was started 250 days ago.

Thanks are due to the Open Source developer community who write bullet proof code. Thanks are also due to Pepco for not interrupting power for more than the 15 minutes our UPS systems can compensate for in the last 250 days.

The last record was just shy of 200 days, and then we had a power cut for more than two hours due to a major tropical storm event (a remnant of a hurricane).

Your support for WBRi is appreciated. Please continue listening to the internet's first and only pioneering Live Bangla Online Radio Channel. Listen on your cell phones and mobiles as well as desktop systems. Read our FAQ for more information.
