One of my all-time favorite CDs is from 1987, Roy Orbison's Black & White Night.
This CD is just plain FUN! Roy's band includes Tom Waits on piano and a few guitar players like Bruce Springsteen Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello, and T Bone Burnett. His back up girl singers number k. d. lang, Bonnie Raitt, and Jennifer Warnes.
Check it out, Dream Baby, and make my dreams come true.
