    Managed to find an interview with the great Sammy Cahn, he who wrote such great classics
    still being recorded today. I am such a fan, I decided to find his biography. Could only find one
    on Amazon US. Didn't think I could order it from there, but 'logged in' to see
    And - yay !! It worked ! Will cost a pretty penny to get it but I so need cheering up, the past
    month has been tough ...........
    In my cheering up quest - I've also ordered a Sam Goldwyn book from our Amazon - oh, such
    joy - I'm cheered up now :p Don't take much really ............. :rolleyes:

    I often order things from the US Amazon that aren't available or are cheaper than Amazon uk... particularly books

    I grew up where country music was King. Rock was coming on but not strong. Bands in my area couldn't make any money playbrock. I liked some of it but my music was country. I had not yet been introduced to classic, pop. Jazz was a no, no. Occasionally I'd hear music or a song in a movie that structure a chord. The man of the day in my neck of the wood was Hank Williams and the stars of the Grand Ole Opery, the Louisiana Hayride. I still look when some one includes a Hank Williams number on their album as Willie Nelson, singing with his sons has done. I like and enjoy a wide range of music now days and many nights fall asleep to some smooth jazz or Henry Mancini, Leonard Bernstein, or Elton John.

    @Patsy Faye Agree about Mr. Cahn, great composer.
    His song list is very large and numerous hits.
    My personal favorite:

    @Tim Burr and @Bill Boggs
    Seems we share the same taste and styles of music
    Bernstein was a genius of music
    My love of music is beyond important to me and I'm so glad I like so many different styles, keeps it all interesting
    Agree with 'all' mentioned above :)
    I've started the Goldwyn book, what an amazing 'young' man he was !
    Hope he continued to be amazing :p
