    Some beautiful ballads and rousing toe-tappers characterized by lyrics of love and innocence with harmonic backgrounds and pronounced bases. I missed most of it in its prime...and my son also has developed an appreciation for this artful music... as I know many others spanning many generations have also.

    For those who do, any favorites?

    My grandfather used to listen to this stuff. I like it. Pretty talented music. I look up some stuff from time to time. He used to listen to this song all the time.

    I like this stuff. I used to stay up late when I was a kid and there'd be infomercials for box-sets of old 50/60s stuff and I was really intrigued by it.

    I worked in an automotive restoration shop in the early 70's. This was all that was on the radio there and to be honest, I had no use for it. Then the movie American Graffiti came out and I kinda started to get it.

    Now that I'm getting old I must admit, some of it is damn good.
