Ms. Austin is one of my favorite singers - I'm disappointed that she hasn't
made more albums. However, she did do one with Don Ewell on the Audiophile
label called "Memories Of You". The catalog number is ACD-143.
The tunes are:
My Honey's Lovin' Arms
A Ghost Of A Chance
I Only Have Eyes For You
Memories Of You
I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good
If I Had You / I'll Get By
I Surrender, Dear
You Took Advantage Of Me
All Of Me
Audiophile is one of the George H. Buck family of labels and it may still be
