Crankin' It Up: Mother's Day Is On The Way

This is a two week warning for you in case you haven't already put it on your agenda. Songs about Mother fell out of popularity a long time ago, mostly because of Sigmund Freud, and Al Jolson was one of the few who just didn't care what people thought. He witnessed his mother dying when he was just a little tyke, and he never quit singing his signature Mammy song. This one, by the Peerless Quartet is a new one for me. It has been lurking in the back of a filing cabinet for decades, and Brat and I cranked it up for your gratification today.
