Rachel O'Reilly sings 'I Keep Going Back To Joe's' live at the Vortex

One of the great saloon songs originally done by Nat King Cole and later Curtis Stigers among others. Sinatra and Tormé should also have had a crack at it - I wonder if they did?.

Thank you for this Lance, what a beautiful heartfelt song. We were talking about songs with this sort of theme, and I wish more singers would do it now.
