Definitive Collection 2006

About the Album: In the dazzling history of our popular culture, no figure is more compelling than Sammy Davis, Jr. No figure is more crucial to understanding the changes in American entertainment from the forties through the seventies. No figure is more charismatic. A multi-talented performer, Davis recorded forty albums and made countless film, television and Las Vegas appearances in his lifetime. Beyond his complexities and contradictions, Sammy never failed to entertain on a spectacularly high level. This compilation lives up to that level. This Collection has Sammy singing at the apex of his powers singing joyfully, passionately, brilliantly and swinging like there's no tomorrow. First-ever career-spanning, single disc, multi-label retrospective of one the world's greatest entertainers. Features Sammy's #1 hit 'Candy Man' as well as signature songs he made famous: 'I've Gotta Be Me,' 'What Kind Of Fool Am I?,' 'Mr. Bojangles,' 'Birth Of The Blues,' 'Hey There' and many more.
