I hadn't posted any of my favorite Sammy Davis Jr. album covers yet, so I thought it was about time. This is the cover for The Goin's Great. I really dig this image of Sammy. He is definitely one cool cat. I hope you like it. Cheers!

It's a great cover, no doubt. But my favorite has to be "Something For Everyone" with Mr. Davis surrounded by a harem of beautiful women.

The cover is in one of my posts, and it even has a sound clip from it. Enjoy.

Hey Anthony. Glad I could introduce you to this one. This particular one is available on CD. It is a shame that many others aren't.
