Re: Abbott Material - Seriously?
David and Ron, I agree with only some of what you said. I think most of us agree about the low quality of the Abbott recordings, but I LOVE "An Old Christmas Card" and "Old Tige". Everyone has their own taste though, of course. Ron, I like all the songs that you said you weren't crazy about, although none of them are among my very favorites. Yes, Jim would have done a nice job with all the songs you both mentioned. It's too bad he never did those--especially "Lonely Street", which he did come close to recording. I always wished that Jim had recorded the song "Dear Heart", which was a big hit by Jack Jones. I think it would have been perfect a perfect song for him.
