Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.
The priceless cover photo of a groovin' Sammy and the syrupy title track (a major hit in 1968) seem tailor-made for those who only view Davis through an ironic lens. While some of the tracks here can be enjoyed ironically, many of them -- like Davis’ definitive reading of "If My Friends Could See Me Now" -- paint a portrait of Sammy as the consummate swinging showman.
