2000: BMG/RCA BVCM-37159
Wanna get maudlin and cry your eyes out? This is a great album for it. I used to listen to my friend Keiths vinyl album of this and get fantastically depressed; in fact at one low point in the late 1980s this was one album I played over and over again while playing a solitaire variation on Canfield I developed (doubling the deck but not the playing field) called Suicide Solitaire. Wanna know the rest of that story? I actually wrote a brief poem about it much later.
Cherries Jubilee in particular is a heart-wrencher. I wish I could sum it up here in one pithy phrase, but only hearing Casss presentation of the song will do.
