Leory Van Dyke Walk on By

This is a solid country album. It's a straight through listen. It features the fine song Walk on By (not the Dionne Warwick version although that's great too.) Unfortunately it doesn't have the hit Auctioneer. I really like the song My World is Caving in, melancholy and catchy. Vocally Leroy kind of sounded like Hank Snow.

Marj Snyder Content in You

I found out about Marj Snyder from the Wayfaring Strangers: Ladies From the Canyon collection which featured Joni Mitchell like unknown singers from the 70's. Marj had a lovely voice. She did independent Christian records in the 70's. Content in You is a solid record. I liked I'm in a well and her cover of Pack up your sorrows.
