A Clear Track Listing.-Breakin' In A Brand New Broken Heart
on 17 May 2013
Lovesick Blues GEMS FROM THE MGM VAULTS is a 3 disc set which comes in a pastic case.
All of the tracks on the CDs are, you will be glad to know, the Original recordings.
BUT Amazon's track listing isn't exactly clear and I must admit I found it hard to read when it's cramped up.
I did not notice Gene Kelly in there for example!
So here is a clear track listing which makes the artists and title just that bit clearer.
Have pity I'm too old for a paper round and too young to retire!

Don't include the last track 26 on your listing.
It's a sad thought that many of these artist will now have passed away after over 50 years or more since the tracks were originally recorded.
In a way it's really good that when we hear them again today we can think back to the original artists.
It would be nice if you could say a little prayer for them.
Like the add for Tesco says `Every little helps'.
