    • John McCormack sang hundreds of songs and left a legacy of over 800 recordings.
      It was during his concert performances that he had his little book should he momentarily forget the lyrics of a song…….it was more of a “security blanket” to enable him to be confident of his performance…….remember….it was live and there we no “do overs”.
      I imagine today many performers use teleprompters.
