But there are other compositions of Don Robertson that I wish Jim had recorded such as, "I Met Her Today", "Anything That's Part of You", "I'm Counting on You", "Love Me Tonight", "You Don't Need Me Anymore", "Starting Today", and "I Really Don't Want To Know", which I think Jim did live, but I don't think he ever put in an album. Those are all pretty songs, and I would love to hear them sung by Jim.
If you investigate Don Robertson's work, you find that he wrote a number of songs that were hits. I read that he also kind of invented the slip note piano playing that Floyd Cramer later made famous. A very talented man.
Larry, do you know if Jim knew Don Robertson, and if so, can you say anything about their relationship. I could not find him mentioned in your book, but I might have missed it.
