    Now This Is Real Music

    This takes me back to when I was a very little girl, my Mom, and Dad would play this music, and dance the night away. I loved Keely Smith, this brings back warm memories, all her music, she had the very best singing sound. Love this, if your in your middle 50's you'll remember and love Keely Smith, "NOW THIS IS REAL MUSIC".
