A Taste of Honey and Licorice Stick Pete Fountain

Posted on March 13, 2012

These were the titles of the next two Pete Fountain albums that my parents bought for me. These albums had the clarinet out in front the whole time with a beautiful big sound. I couldn't listen to them enough! My dad would put those two records on one of those phonographs with a record changer, and I would listen to both sides. It must have kept my dad busy making sure that the music didn't stop for long when he had to flip them. I think those records became worn through, but I still have them today. Eventually after many years, I found every Pete Fountain record and CD ever recorded.
