“With your wife’s cold feet in the middle of your back.  There’s no place like home.”  That is familiar.

 In the first half of the 1950s, though, the musical team of Les and his wife Mary Ford wasn’t only known in guitar circles; they actually were two of the biggest names in music. The couple produced 16 top-10 hits, including two Number 1 tunes—”How High the Moon” and “Vaya con Dios.” In 1951 alone, they sold more than 6 million records.
