This review is from: American Country Songs (Audio CD)
Just over 50 years after I heard my brothers Eddie and Donald's copy of "American Country Songs" in Port Elizabeth, South Africa as a teenager [ there is still a much-played and much-scratched vinyl LP knocking around in the family vaults somewhere ], and after over five years of looking out for it on Amazon - to my amazement,I am now listening to it again in China, Meizhou [ my grandfather's home town] on cd...complete with the original cover and the original liner notes...thanks to the Japanese love of Helen Merrill and of jazz in general...
It sounds just as magical, as it did then...see my original review on Amazon.com, when I was still searching for it - the first time I have ever reviewed anything on Amazon...
If you appreciate jazz,and love country music, buy this unique recording immediately, one for yourself and copies for your best friends...I bought two,in case one disappears and I have to wait another 50 years before I can find it again...
