Editor's note: Oh, I bet he does. Swing, that is. Merrily, gayly and flamboyantly. But only on stage. Or so his byline states. The record covers state otherwise or maybe it's just his Pee Wee Herman mannerisms showcased on the sleeve. Never mind me, peoples of the interwebs. Though, he was once given the nickname "The Cremer" in deference to Sinatra's "The Crooner" and Bing's "The Groaner", which sounds just as nefarious, so cut me slack while I pigeonhole a deceased man based upon his staged covers and the positioning of such despite his actually lived life.

I did find out that Johnny was from Detroit and that means I will be picking up any others that I come across. Bravo, eh? I was going to link to another of his albums but that one which was previously posted 8 1/2 years ago is basically this same record rearranged with the track Tenderly added. I blew that, eh? Oh, well. There is another record by Mayfair featured on this blog as well.

Is it possible to use a downloading site that doesn't require registering with personal info? (We won't even get into the endless popups...)

Thanks.

The problem with so-called downloading sites is that most will delete the content after a certain amount of time. Also, my philosophy on this blog is that I want the reader to listen to the album from the media player in the post. Merely downloading and then dipping out seems a bit rude to me. Which is one reason that I enabled numerous pop-ups on the ads which compensate me very little and I mean one or two pennies a day. It seems like minimal recompense from my end of the deal.
