Sammy Davis Jr. Sings Shaft

This video clip was on my pallie Jeremy's Moon In The Gutter blog. Jeremy was posting some videos from the late Isaac Hayes. This clip is of Sammy Davis Jr.'s cover of the classic theme song from Shaft. I love both that film and the cool song by Isaac Hayes, who actually produces Sammy's version. This song was on Sammy's amazing Now album from the early 1970's. I just had to share it with all of you here at The Dino Lounge. I hope you like it. Let me know what you think. Cheers!

Hey pallie DMP. No problem at all. We all have different tastes in music. Yeah, that is a cool picture of Sammy on the cover of Ebony. I do think it probably had a good article on him as well in it.

I had never actually heard his verison before. I really like it though. Sammy was always quite a talent.
