    We "Sincerely" believe that these songs are on the right track to Make You Sing Again.

    Here's something different for you on this Play Back Sunday.  It's an adaptation of an ancient American Indian (peyote) chant which we believe was the first such Native American chant to be played on American pop radio.

    This extended version is well worth the time spent listening to. The inner feeling of peace that this chant evokes is worth contemplating.

    This is the country band that got Lou into country music in the first place. From the hills of Tennessee to the steel mills of Pittsburgh ...  Abby Neil and the Ranch Girls.

    Lou's path led him to the stage of The Grand Ole Opry  where he sang our second tune in his new Podcast.  Listen to it all here on ISBAH.  It's ten minutes well spent.

   This artist played a Mandolin at The Grand Ole Opry at the tender age of 6 with the "Father of Bluegrass".  His musical career has gone nowhere but straight up from there ...what with his 15 Grammy Awards.

      Our entry this week has him singing with a legendary female country group.

      This is pure Country Gold in our Book.

   Here's a young group of very talented musicians & singers based around the Robinson siblings from Callahan, Florida. 

   These cats can "pick more notes than the number of ants on a Tennessee anthill" and their lead singer sounds like a Country Karen Carpenter.

     So put on the cowboy boots and be prepared to kick up some bluegrass music here on ... ISHBAH.

       The seasons may change but this guys voice is always right for any season.

        Here's one of his songs that didn't quite reach the heights his major hits did but it is well deserving of a second listen here on ...

It SHOULD Have Been a HIT!

      Here's a Double Doo Wop from the early rock and roll archives.   

      The first song is from The Flamingos ... one of the premiere vocal groups of the 50's & 60's.  

      The Next tune is from a group very few have ever heard of ... The Quin-Tones. This song from 1958 is their only hit.  It sold close to a million copies from which they received no royalties.

      Give these two songs a listen.  They deserve it.
