    Last oktober I posted an album by a dear artist from Amsterdam,
    the city of my ancestors. Johnny Jordaan is still a hero of the
    old days and has sentimental value to me. He used to sing with
    this fine lady. Tante Leen and Johnny Jordaan are unforgettable
    and there’s even a Johnny Jordaan Plein ( square ). Funny enough
    I bought this LP today in Utrecht instead of Amsterdam. The music
    is typical for the ‘Jordaan’, an area in old Amsterdam. Music quite
    different from what you’re used to find here. Tante Leen had her own
    little café where she used to sing for the public, the only day she
    didn’t sing was when Ajax played at home. Every fortnight on sunday she
    was in the Ajax football stadium cheering for her club.


    1 Mijn ouwe Amstelstad
    2 Oh Johnny
    3 Wanneer
    4 Ik ben zo verliefd
    5 Hand in hand
    6 Ik kan vergeten
    7 Aan de Amsterdamse grachten
    8 Waarom wil je niets meer van me weten
    9 De oude straatmuzikant
    10 Mijn jongen
    11 Kijk mij eens aan
    12 Op die ouwe Nieuwendijk

    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.
