We present for your delectation A Grand Tour Of The USA, which we may perhaps subtitle The Great American Map Book as an affectionate nod to The Great American Songbook that lauded and celebrated the fabulous songwriters of the twenties and thirties. Featuring music across the genres from the fifties and sixties our unique collection recognises the songs that took the towns, cities and even areas of cities of the USA as their inspiration and reveals a great treasury of songs that have lasted every bit as well as their predecessors.
