Sammy Davis Jr. Gets Groovy With For Once In My Life

The following clip was brought to my attention by one of my pallies here. They were planning to post it at their blog Planet Mondo. You can check out their blog post at that link. I wanted to post it here as well. I love this clip so much. I had never seen it before, but I can't stop watching it. This is Sammy Davis Jr. singing For Once In My Life. This is one awesome tune, plus it's one groovy performance. Check out those clothes on Sammy. Pallies, I really love Sammy. He is one of the coolest cats ever. The man is one of my favorite entertainers of all time. He's great in any era or doing any style of music. I hope you enjoy this clip too. Cheers!

Thanks for the linky Keith - this clip comes from 'The Tom Jones Show' , 2 volumes (3 dvd's in each) are available from Amazon - both contain some stunning performances and duets including - Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Janis Joplin. Grab them both you won't be disappointed

Hey there. Your welcome. Thanks for bringing it to my attention in the first place. I love it. I've still been watching it. Thanks for letting me know where this video comes from. I've never seen any of the Tom Jones Show. I'm a fan of him though. This sounds like something I would enjoy on so many levels.

Tom and Janis, Tom and Aretha and The best version of Say A Little Prayer - all from the Tom shows - actually I reckon Tom could be next week's Funky Friday
