Claude Gray was a countrypolitan Nashville-Sounder, much in the way Jim Reeves was. Also like Jim Reeves, Claude was a Texan. Apparently a very TALL Texan. This is not one of his celebrated records, but I think it should be. Sure, it is very reminiscent of Gentlemen Jim, but who cares?! Just listen to that shimmery guitar! It's one of those echoey reverb records good for a rainy day or a late night drive in the country. I can't resist. The introvert in me just wants to curl up in front of the fire with a cup of cocoa and good book and listen to this over and over and over. And over again. All alone.

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
