      Hi Gordon,
      Thank you for your comments.

      I hadn’t heard of Libby Allen but a quick ‘google’ for Libby Allen Songs turned up her web site http://libbyallensongs.com/wordpress/

      From the menu bar there are several appropriate links —

      There are several versions of “Don’t Cry for Me” you can listen to:
