Re: Full Swing

Ah, thanks for pointing that out.

Checked Susan Kevra’s name before posting, who is first on the album from CDBaby.

Re: Full Swing

Another thing you can do to check to see if the album has already been posted is to search for recordings from a tune in that album, provided, of course, that it was spelled correctly.
