Happy November! Here's a sweet mellow one for your Halloween weekend recovery day. Most people of my generation know this song best by Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters. In fact, we'd swear the song originates inside that ukulele at that 1970s campfire by the beach. It turns out, that is not true. It reaches back all the way to the 1920s. There were two hit versions released in the 50s (this is one of them) and it continued on in popularity into the 1960s.
This version is by Idaho native Karen Chandler and singing cowboy Jimmy Wakely. It's definitely more pop than Western though, and it is the perfect song to ease you into your day. Before you know it, this record will have you humming along and maybe even send you skipping along down the damp side streets of Portland.

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!
