The ever-versatile duo of Les Paul and Mary Ford brought a Jazz sensibility to the Pop tunes they recorded and are also widely credited as the unsung founders of Country Rock. "Your Cheatin' Heart," "Makin' Whoopee" and "Am I Blue" are just a few of the 24 songs this dynamic duo embraces on this collection.
