Hi Val,

I do love the way you play these pieces. You really do bring out the best organ sounds and they are a pleasure to listen to.

I have looked for the song on YouTube and the original performances were by Dick Jacobs, his Chorus and his Orchestra; and Billy Vaughn and his Orchestra. But I have found another arrangement by Bert Kaempfert. It's always interesting to see how others tackle a piece so I am putting this one up here.
