The double CD has 19 tracks. That's a Plenty is not on it nor is I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, both of which appear in the liner notes showing 21 cuts. The CD label itself appears correct with 19 cuts listed.

Great CD!

Actually the listing here has an error. Blue Line is the name of the Al Hirt CD and is not a cut so there are 21 listed on the liner notes and 19 on the labels with the 2 missing that I mentioned earlier.
