Sorry for the delay in getting back here. Axcroft, I presumed that if I'd put in a url code correctly at the beginning of the links, they would come up red and underlined, like the ones Tonker managed to do, but I just couldn't seem to do it correctly; so that's what I meant by incomplete. I'm really chuffed that they've been heard in a public domain.
And Mollie, I also lived close to what would have been Norman Leather's music shop, though it had long since closed by the time I did. I do remember the large peg board effect just back from the main window for sound absorption, and his name sign on the window. Was it gold? How fab would that have been to hear him playing his piano from the music shop?
Arthur Tracy! I would never have remembered that name in a million years TerryW, so just looked him up on You Tube. I think I only ever heard the song 'Because' in the distant past, but not via my dad so who knows where. My brother also told me that my dad liked Billy Eckstine's voice and his duets with Sarah Vaughan, but I don't remember him ever playing anything of theirs, and Billy's voice was not one I could have warmed to.
