MASTERFUL VOCAL PERFORMANCES~BRAVO SAMMY!!!

"Sammy Davis Jr. was always an excellent singer during his Decca years in the fifties but became a really great singer when he signed to close friend Frank Sinatra's Reprise Records...this great collection is one of the very finest from this awesome period and Sammy's recording career has been vastly underrated and sadly overlooked until these long overdue reissues have finally seen the light of day and show Mr. Sammy Davis Jr. as one of the finest of the great legendary singers over the past fifty or so years!!!
Opening with the jazzy great rhythm cooker "Bee-Bom", Sammy hits his stride with a loose vocal where he scats around and pulls the listener along for a great ride...every varied performance is winning and arrangements are first-rate.
"The Shelter Of Your Arms" is one of Sammy's finest classic performances and this great vocal is full and passionate making this a huge and well-deserved hit that I remember well as it sounded majestic over the airwaves and sounds still wonderful today in this great set...a real timeless classic!
Anyone who wants to experience Sammy at his peak do not miss this masterpiece...thank you Sammy Davis Jr. for leaving us with these wonderful gems to enjoy over and over and you are really missed!!!"

"A must for all Sammy Davis Jnr fans! Classic songs from a golden era, the young Sammy Davis is superb in this early collection of standards. Compositions from legendary songwriters enable Sam to shine supreme. Unbelievably good!"
