Thread Name: Why is a singer one of your favorites?
Subject: RE: Why is a singer one of your favorites?
Allow me one male and one female:
STAN ROGERS: with that voice, and the ability to write things like "The Mary Ellen Carter", I'm sometimes tempted to call him the "best in the world", tho I really know there ain't no one such thing.
ANNE HILLS: partly because she is the one really great singer I have had the chance to hear from the stage of the "NO EXIT" in Chicago on up to the present, and because the closest I ever came to fame back then was telling a stupid joke to Ann at the NO EXIT and having her repeat it on stage. But really because I still don't think there is a prettier, more impecabbly handled, voice out there.
