Tanya Falan 45 Singles

After the The Lennon Sisters, Tanya Falan is my next favorite Lawrence Welk show performer. She has a remarkably expressive, sultry voice. Of all the singers on the show, she was the most contempary sounding. She could take a Beatles song, or some torch ballad and just enthrall the viewer. I really love her voice, which is why I'm temporarily veering away from Lennon Sisters songs, and spotlighting Tanya here.

The only record I have by her is an old MGM 45 - I don't even know what year it's from. I bought it at a garage sale years ago, and have always liked it, especially the A-side , Telling Me Lies. It's a beautiful, haunting song.




*Reuploaded songs to MediaFire*
Download it and the B-side, I Feel It here.

Now this might sound odd, but you know what current artist is reminding me of Tanya? Amy Winehouse. I'm serious! Not the tatooed, drunkeness part, but the great voice, mainly on Amy's title track Back To Black. When she belts the chorus,
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to....black

I totally hear a similarity to Tanya.

And no I'm not crazy.

Listen to it on Amy's My Space, and then this Tanya clip on You Tube.

I always thought Tanya kinda reminded me of Barbara Streisand, based on singing voice and presence, she is really a treat to watch her sing!

I also have her solo LP titled "Let It Be", it's very hard to find these days but if you check into ebay or visit your local reocrd store selling LPs...you might be lucky!

Can you reupload this. I see that Roger Nichols was involved in this project. I would love to hear this.
Thanks

Thanks so much! The songs are very beautiful. Although I'm not familiar with the songwriters, Sheldon & Hamilton, being a fan of Roger Nichols (he co-wrote many pop classics with Paul Williams), I really appreciate the sunshine pop vibe he brings to this recording.
According to my research this single was released in 1967.

I highly recommend the album, Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Friends if you are inclined to the late 60's pop sound.

Keep up the great work!

I am so glad to hear someone praise Tanya. I think she is a marvelous singer and it seems when she got divorced from her first huband, she stopped singing.CA

I agree! Tanya is both very expressive, controlled, and yet sings in tune. Her segments on the Welk show are my favorites. And she seemed a lot more willing to sing torch songs with complex subjects.
