Het Beste van Johnny Jordaan, EMI 1985

I use to post ‘music for the people’ of many country’s.
This time I want to introduce a Dutch singer to you, one I
really enjoy listening to. This is typical music from the
Amsterdam neighbourhood, ‘de Jordaan’. The album is from ’85
but the recordings are made between 1954 ( track # 1 ) and
early 60’s. Johnny Jordaan had huge succes late 50’s, his music,
though sung with enormous Amsterdam slang, was played throughout
the Netherlands. I always loved it, something quite different
for once. Hope you appreciate.
