Danny Boy

There is nothing like Jackie Wilson's cover of "Danny Boy." How many could've turned "Londonderry Air" into a gospel freakout? Get it, hear it, and go beyond.

Where do I get it? My mom-in-law recorded "Danny Boy" when she was my (singer-songwriter) daughter's age.

Mom-in-law won't let anyone hear it, though - though she was thought to be a great singer back then - because her kids (including my husband) teased her unmercifully.

My daughter must have gotten her talent in the gene pool - or, there was a dreadful mix-up at the hospital.

I have it on a Jackie Wilson greatest hits collection. I'm sure it's on most of those. It's one of his great gymnastic vocals.
