Here's some recent queries...
"Well, I wonder if you could help me..........I want a song called "Dear John" but I need to know the singer. I hear her in my mind but can't drag it out. Was it Jeannie Sealy? It was someone from that era." The song you are looking for is called "A Dear John Letter" by Jean Shepard and Ferlin Husky, recorded in 1953. Skeeter Davis and Bobby Bare also recorded A Dear John Letter"in 1965. Hope this helps you. You are wonderful! Of course that's Jean Shepard's voice in my head. Both she and Jeannie Sealy have distinctive voices. Thank you so much.
"Who recorded Goodnight Irene? Was it the Weavers? Or am I in left field. Thanks ."
Yes indeed, Gordon Jenkins and The Weavers recorded Goodnight Irene. "Oh, thank you Michael. You are an absolute gem. "
