A Delightful Surprise!

Do you ever buy a book, or a DVD or CD with little expectations?  Then when you read, see or hear it, you're thrilled.

That is the case with Willie Nelson's cd, "To All The Girls".  It was given to me in November.  I have played and played it.  To my ear it is one of his best.  The music is duets with the likes of Dolly Parton, Miranda Lambert, Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow and Emmylou Harris, to name a few.

Many of the songs I have never heard before.  One is Grandma's Hands with Mavis Staples and No Mas Amor with Alison Krauss.

It is absolutely delightful!  If you like Willie, and I do, along with all the others, you can't go wrong buying this cd.

Go  for it!  Happy days...........

La Tejedora, Todd and Barbara, I seldom recommend CDs because usually I only like one or two songs on a CD. This one I like all but one!
Someone gave it to me - I probably wouldn't have bought it or maybe after I had looked at all the duets, I would have.

ENJOY
La Tejedora, you're a new poster, thanks for commenting. Love your name! Or moniker, whatever it is.

I guess I'm going to have to download Willie's album
:-)

I rediscovered a voice from the past yesterday. Do you remember Julie London? The video isn't very good, but the voice is as smooth as silk! I wonder if blogger will publish this url.

Yes, I remember Julie London and her voice was always very sultry and enjoyable. I'll check her out on You Tube......Thanks for reminding me.

No doubt Willie's song is at the top of my favorite ones. But why do I always cry listening to it? I wonder.

Just finding your blog yesterday via your comment on Ara's Oasis blog, I know I'm in for a delightful experience following you.

Thank you for sharing. Truly.

I must stress I understand none/few words songs but only hearing the melodies.
