    If I had a penny for every positive thing MrMyster has ever said about anyone on this forum I could buy that postage stamp I’ve been dreaming of, provided this scenario took place in 1920.

    Did you think I was negative about DK? A bit puzzled here.

    Oh my! Costello has so far gotten as many comments in here as La Voce usually gets when her name is mentioned. Great freeforall on many angles of singing. I suddenly thought of Jimmy Roselli, who griped for years that he could have been a big Star, but Sinatra would not let anyone book him outside Jersey lounges. I found a lp of his songs once, and Frank was onto something. Jimmy was a good lounge singer,which is just fine, but he did not have a Star voice.
