I love Stephen Foster. I can't help myself. I have over thirty covers of Hard Times Come Again, No More, probably one of the saddest songs of all times. I have the complete recordings of Stephen Foster as sung by Nelson Eddy. I have a rendition of Beautiful Dreamer from a Canon commercial, as well as a rendition of Oh, Susanna by the Bulgarian Women's Choir.
So it is no surprise that I am always on the look-out for new recordings of Foster's music. Which brings us to today's recommendation.
