I'm so glad itunes brought Mel Street! Iv'e been waiting a long time for one my favorite songs of all time, Borrowed Angel. I read once where Sammy Kershaw said his favorite singer is Mel Street and a favorite song, Lovin' On Back Streets. If you like Mel, you may want to check out Sammy as well if you're new to him, because it appears he borrowed a little of Mel's style. Itunes keeps getting more and more goodies in all the time, and it rocks :)
