Who is Eddy Arnold?

Dear Mr. Arnold

I don’t know who you are. I even don’t know if you are still alive. I don’t google you. Therefor I have no further information than what I get from the back on the record sleeve. And that is almost nothing. I want you to stay a mystery for me. You came to me by accident. Probably not many like you as I do. Otherwise you’d never have landed on my turntable. Can you imagine that you were attached as packaging material in a box? In a box together with another LP? A LP that was purchased but you were only purposeful accompaniment. Almost unimaginable. Isn’t it? But I will take good care of you. I wont break your trusty (or do you sing rusty?) heart in two. I promise! You sound pretty scratchy according to your age. I like it though but I will ensure that the needle slides gently on you. And with your smile, your toothpaste white smile, you make me.. well, I should stop now this would go too far. But one thing remains to me to say: “Eddy, sing them again!”
