An Excellent Collection By A True Innovator. Aug. 28 2007
By Anthony Nasti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sammy Davis Jr. is one of the most important figures in American popular music. When he first came on the scene, he was initially ostracized for, among other reasons, his height and his skin color. And even afer he broke down those barriers, with the help of a good friend named Frank Sinatra, he then had to overcome a terrible tragedy that cost him half his vision. And still, Sammy persevered to become one of the most beloved figures in popular music.

The 30 song "The Definitive Collection" perfectly show why Sammy remains as beloved as he does. Sammy's talent and perseverence as an artist shines through on each and every track, from "Hey There" to "Something's Gotta Give" to "The Lady Is A Tramp" to "What Kind Of Fool Am I" to his anthem, "I've Gotta Be Me" (one of the most powerful and uplifting songs ever) and everything in between. Sammy's skills as a vocalist are powerful, pure and beaten by few. Even fluff like "Candy Man" becomes a masterpiece in his hands. Sammy was a one of a kind talent with great flair and energy as a performer. God Bless Him.

This cd has a great remastering job and has an awesome essay by David Ritz. A must-have for all music fans.

One of the Greatest Ever March 12 2007
By mistermaxxx08 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sammy Davis Jr is One of my all time Favorite Artists. he truly had a way with words&His overall Talent paved the way for so many artists that have followed over the years. "Candy man" is my Jam. always have loved that song. dug "Keep Your eye on the Sparrow" was the cut from the Tv show "Baretta. always dug that cut. "Mr.Bojangles" is also a trademark from Sammy. he had a very distictive voice. he was truly one of a Kind.

Sammy sure could sing Nov. 28 2007
By Moira Rose Donohue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a great collection of his best songs - and contains his really incredible rendition of Too Close for Comfort. It's a great cd to put on while you sip something warm and wrap yourself in the jazzy, caressing sound of Sammy's voice. The one downside is that the recordings, even though remastered, are just the tiniest bit fuzzy. Still, it's such a great songlist that it's really worth owning.

late to appreciate magnificence... I Agree Jan. 21 2011
By R. Birnbaum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My mom and dad would see Sammy in Vegas(circa 1963 to 1967), and Hollywood(Cocanut Grove), and come home in utter ecstasy--- they couldn't fall asleep until about 7 AM..As a dopey teenager,I could not appreciate the utter magnificance of their evening's out night...I'm 62 now and would kill to have such memories. My world is utter dreck by comparison... They actualy saw Sinatra at the Sands about 1965...primo Sinatra vocals...God,I wish I had such memories...and Sammy with the rat pack about 1966...what do I have? Crap,that's what... Sammy is the greatest on stage entertainer of this century-before and beyond..I have all of his recordings and will never,ever give them away...His rendition of "Something's Gotta Give" is sheer perfection,not to mention "The Birth of the Blues",his signature number...
