Listen To: Loch Lomond

One of the many wonderful songs I used to play when rooting through my dad’s LP collection:

“Loch Lomond” – Benny Goodman Orchestra, vocals Martha Tilton.

“Oh, you take the high road, and I’ll take the low road,
but I’ll be in Scotland before you
For me and my true love may never meet again
On the bonny, bonny banks of Loch Lomond.”

Benny Goodman Says “Tain’t No Use”

I first heard this song, oh, way back, and still love it today.

Benny Goodman is one of my delights, and the fact that he’s singing in this makes it even better! I don’t care that he’s not a trained singer, it’s BENNY.

“No, tain’t no use
Tain’t no use
Cooked my goose
No, tain’t no use…”
