ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Former President George Bush's father started the Walker Cup. Don sent him the material and pictures of the Walker Cup Tournaments., President Bush answered..... "Dear Francine and Don, Loved your letter Francine, and I really enjoyed looking through the Walker Cup information you sent. Don those CDs are terrific. Thanks so much,
Warmest wishes for a wonderful Christmas and the happiest of New Years. Sincerely,
George Bush

Irving Berlin heard Don's recording of "Maybe It's Because" and invited Don to his office. He proceeded to tell Don that it was one of the best recordings he heard of his songs, and that it had prompted him to write a country song just for Don. Unfortunately it wasn't one of Mr. Berlin's best songs, but the mere fact that he had composed it strictly for Don overshadowed its flaws.



Jim Murray, syndicated columnist, once profiled Don in an in-depth review. In the last paragraph he wrote:

“Don is the only one in Las Vegas last week who was starring in the Sahara Open during the day and also singing at the Sahara Hotel at night. Get him to sing you Green, Green Grass Of Home and shoot you a 67 with two 3 putt greens and if you don't get goosebumps, then you wouldn't be impressed if Caruso went 3 for 4 in the World Series in the afternoon and brought down the house in Pagliacci at the Met at night.


Bobby Rydell singer

Hi Don,
Just listened to your CD "Augusta" and it's fantastic. have loved your singing all of my life. If someone can sound better in your lifetime, I don't know who that singer could be. All your fans should her that CD.
God Bless and Stay Well
Always yours,
Bobby Rydell


Joe Williams- Singer

When Don sings, the vibrant tones of his voice make you know that this is someone singing because he can't help it
He sings with soul. Sing the song man.

Joe Williams


Taken from Ed Sullivan's Column in New York Times

Elvis Presley considered Don Cherry one of his two favorite singers, the other being Sergio Franci.


Rod McKuen-----song writer

I wish you would ease up on your golf and sing more of my songs. Even though Dean Martin thinks your golf game is tasty. I'd rather hear you singing my songs or anybody's songs.
That you've chosen two of my favorites for this album is especially nice, but then I can't remember you ever singing anything I didn't like.
Stay well,
Rod
P.S. Have you ever wondered why Dean tried to keep you on the golf course?


From The English Paper
by Laurie Pignon

They don't think much of crooners in St. Andrews, even Bing's swing leaves them cold. But when cherry nigtclub singer Don Cherry stood on the wet grey steps of the Royal and Ancient Clubhouse and cood into the mike only the bronze face of Old Tom Morris frowned from its plaque. Here is a man to respect.Aman who helped give Britain's best Amateur golfers their biggest home defeat in the Walker Cup by ten matches to two. In this hit parade cheerful Cherry sang "I Believe" He couldn't have picked a better song, for in those two words is the secret of America's golf supremacy. Americans believe they are the best when the pressure is on, and they are.
