Thanks for posting this. It doesn't seem like anybody carries it and I've always heard it was so bad it wasn't worth hearing. Turns out it's not completely worthless and has some gems & interesting oddities: Mr. Bojangles and Spanish is the Loving Tongue are both really good, to name two. Then there's some pretty, well, (I'll just say it) bad, versions of Can't Help Falling in Love and Joni Mitchell's Big Yellow Taxi ("pave paradise and put up a parking lot.").
I always thought this was much under-appreciated. I think it's a lovely Sunday morning, coffee-in-bed, newspaper on knees record. Bob's in fine voice here. A good interpreter of other people's tunes.
