In the plastic bag with records that Dirk Koorn gave me was also this 45:
I have never heard of Danny Boy. And as far Google could tell me tonight, he never existed.
I love the version of ”All of me” by the King Odom Four, that I have on the first volume of the Dangerous DooWop LP’s. That is one of my all time favourite songs. So, there was a little expectation in the air when I laid the 45 on my turntable. This is what came out of the speakers:

If there is a CD out of Danny Boy, please let me know. I would love to hear more of the man!
