Then has anyone listened to Jack Jones? From the 60's but at 71 he's still touring. I was listening to Frank Sinatra channel on the Sirius and heard him this morning, WOW outstanding. Having the names and song titles listed when you hear the music helps, I would never have guessed it was Jack, sounded like Frank.

Mentioning some of these singers from yesteryear reminds me of Slim Whitman. He was one of the first to use the 1-800 method to sell his music/albums on the TV.

 

Some interesting things about him:

 

Legacy

The late American pop singer Michael Jackson cited Whitman as one of his ten favorite vocalists. Beatle George Harrison cited Whitman as an early influence: "The first person I ever saw playing a guitar was Slim Whitman, either a photo of him in a magazine or live on television. Guitars were definitely coming in." When a young Paul McCartney purchased his first guitar, the left-handed musician was unsure how to play an instrument that was manufactured and strung for a right-handed player. It wasn't until McCartney saw a picture of Whitman playing left-handed that he re-strung his guitar so that he too could play left-handed.

 

The 1996 film Mars Attacks! features Whitman's rendition of "Indian Love Call" as a weapon against alien invaders. In 2003, Rob Zombie used Whitman's song "I Remember You" in his movie directorial debut in House of 1000 Corpses

 

 

Now, I only mention this because

 

Personal life

After 1957 Whitman lived at his estate Woodpecker Paradise, in Middleburg, a city located south of Orange Park, Florida, in Clay County

 

 

I often work just down the road from this house. I have driven past it too many times to count.

 

Also, before the road that runs through Middleburg was widened, when it was a small two-lane country road - and, before name-brand convenience stores were everywhere (this was in the late 60's and early 70's) there was a small mom-and-pop store where he used to sit on the porch and play his guitar and talk to anyone who talked to him. He was a very polite, nice and friendly man. He never came off as rich, successful, important or any of the other things many people do who are "stars".

I used his TV album to punish my kids on a long trip. If they didn't behave in the car, in went the Slim Whitman tape. Worked every time.
