Notas editoriales de iTunes

Today, Sammy Davis Jr. may be best remembered as a charter member of Frank Sinatra’s Rat Pack. But the diminutive showman was very much his own man, possessing a deeply resonant voice and a dynamic stage presence. I’ve Gotta Be Me: The Best of Sammy Davis Jr. dispels some of the Vegas mythology surrounding his career to reveal a performer of sensitivity and substance. These tracks are culled from Davis’ 1960s output for Reprise, a period when he tempered his jazz and theater music-rooted sound with contemporary pop touches. The ballads here are truly golden — “What Kind of Fool Am I,” “As Long as She Needs Me,” and “The Shelter of Your Arms” are perfect vehicles for his clear phrasing and aching intonation. Davis excelled at songs celebrating self-empowerment, as the buoyant “Once in a Lifetime,” “Yes I Can,” and the title track show. “Gonna Build a Mountain” reveals a surprising gospel influence. Davis’ recordings aren’t always well served by their overly busy, kitschy arrangements, but beneath the casino lounge glitz are some truly soulful and self-assured performances delivered by an artist who earned his place in the Pack.

U Can't Go Wrong

Although retrospective starts off slow....EVERYONE must have Sammy doing "Once In A Lifetime "and "I Gotta B Me"..the rest is gravy...if u can try and get Sammy doing his Christmas collection...he really was THE swinger...such a range.

No Candyman?

A "Best of" Sammy Davis Jr. and no Candyman? Thats just wrong in my book, I'll admit I'm not that familar with most of the material contained here but once again, a best of Sammy and no Candyman? What's the use?

Sammy Is Fabulous!

I had the privilege of seeing Sammy in concert and my seats were great - So I can say he was one of the most entertaining people I have ever seen. His magnificent voice belies his stature. He was a giant among singers! I miss him, but being able to listen to him is its own reward! Plus his personality was electric. There is no greater group than the ORIGINAL RAT PACK. Man, thoses were the days!!!!!!! Barbara B.

Recognized throughout much of his career as "the world's greatest living entertainer," Sammy Davis, Jr. was a remarkably popular and versatile performer equally adept at acting, singing, dancing, and impersonations — in short, a variety artist in the classic tradition. A member of the famed Rat Pack, he was among the very first African-American talents to find favor with audiences on both sides of the color barrier, and remains a perennial icon of cool. Born in Harlem on December 8, 1925, Davis...
