Even though I did this cd ( now on mp3) for my Mom after a terrible fall she had before Christmas, it's people like you with great taste to be honest with what she "my Mother" said after listening to it ( lounge 37 unplugged) Susan Pepple Please let me know what you think because it looks like your choices in music are a lot like mine....awesome!!! I would greatly appreciate it!! Thank you Susan p.s. there is some yodeling in a few songs and I honestly think that is why it got posted yet I really like the last 7 songs the best ;0)
