This album is the second in a series that has songs I grew up with -- songs that have tremendous staying power and still sound fresh and new. Although I'm primarily a recording artist, some of my best musical moments come when I perform live at retirement homes in and around San Jose, CA. You should see the sparkle in the eyes of those sweet elderly residents who come to hear my performances. The best compliment I ever got was when one lady wistfully said she wished I were on television. I may not be on TV, but I'm doing the next best thing by offering to you the songs that I have chosen for this album. I hope you will take the time to sample some or all of them and that you will like what you hear. If you do, you'll make me very happy! I always like to hear from listeners like you, because that's the only way I can make my recordings even better. Please feel free to e-mail me your thoughts and comments. Al James.
