• Burl IVES - Man About Town

A simple bearded troubadour performing unsophisticated songs without tricks or embellishments, Burl Ives single-handedly filled concert halls on both sides of the Atlantic.

Features the two top ten hits, 'A Little Bitty Tear', 'Funny Way of Laughin' and the top twenty 'Call Me Mr. In-Between'.

Burl Ives was a true institution in America and this new collection sits alongside our previous two editions JASBOX 14-4 - 'The Wayfaring Stranger' & JASMCD 3524 - 'Lavender Blue' perfectly and is a fitting tribute to the genius of the man. R.I.P. Burl. We miss your dulcet tones.
