Ron & Bill: Me too, thanks for the heads-up. I'll be listening.

Amos: :-) I sing "Around the Corner" but I don't think of it much as a "family" song. On the other hand, I often used their "Siembamba" (in the database) as a lullaby. My, now, 30-year-old daughter still sings it.

John: I have 10 Decca & 4 other records. (Some LPs but most are nicely filtered & transferred mp3s kindly posted to by David Thuleen) If you're desperate for a track, let me know. (I have a modem so it takes me a while to send/receive a mp3.)

I keep a brief bio on them for the "Happy!" file. It took me 5 years to find their dates of birth and I'm very pleased to see this renewed interest in them. I caught their brief gig in the movie "Rope of Sand" on very-late night a while back & just loved it. It's just another corney "Casablanca" rip-off but their appearance made the whole thing worth while. You can probably get it at Blockbusters.
