Ghost of Stephen Foster was an absolute favourite with me when I first got into the album which was about a couple of years or so after it's release. Today, the songs I like the most are the songs where Katharine Whalen sings (on Perennial Favorits, particularly Low Down Man, Evening at Lafitte's, My Drag). I love the sound of her Billie Holidayesque voice!
Interestingly, Low Down Man which I rate so highly was a song I would skip when I was a teenager
It's no longer swing jazz, though!
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.

I actually read the whole of The Great Gatsby with Perennial Favorites on, I believe. It was grand!
Edit: This performance of Hell blows away the version on Hot, by the way. I once listened to it and couldn't find it for ages! Glad it's back on youtube!
