My Mum loved music.
She had an admirable collection of records and cassettes when I was a child, and now that she has passed on, I am enjoying the process of going through her extensive CD collection.
Here are a few of her favourite songs:
Grover Washington-Just the two of us.
Bob Marley-Buffalo Soldier.
Majek Fashek-Send down the rain.
The Carpenters-Top of the world.
