A real oddity in the Sammy Davis Jr collection from the 60s – and almost more of a comedy album than a vocal one! The album is subtitled "Sammy Davis Jr Impersonating" – and then lists a range of stars, singers, and actors from the mid 20th century – including Tony Bennett, Mario Lanza, Ray Charles, Frankie Laine, Al Hibbler, James Cagney, Bela Lugosi, Dean Martin
, Jimmy Stewart, and many others – all of whom Sammy channels in voices while singing tunes on side 1! Impersonation was a big part of Davis' live show in the 60s, and this album is one of the few to highlight it – with comedic versions of "That Lucky Old Sun", "Sonny Boy", "Ballerina", "Lulu's Back In Town", and "Stranger In Paradise". Side 2 features straight vocal tunes with arrangements by George Rhodes, Neal Hefti, and Morty Stevens (who also handled side 1) – with titles that include "I Married An Angel", "Without A Song", "Deed I Do", "Falling In Love Again", and "You Can't Love Em All".
