I had a similar experience, having first heard "A Wonderful Day Like Today" on my car radio on WNEW soon after its release in 1965. I was in my late teens at the time, and that song, along with similar themed contributions from Peggy, Lena, Frank, Tony, Dino, and others began what for me would be a long love affair with both WNEW and the music of Sammy Davis, Jr.. Pity that today Sammy is remembered primarily for "The Candy Man" and his association with the Rat Pack -- there was so much more to him than that. Sammy could not only sing with the best of them, he was also a consummate dancer and a truly talented impressionist, right up there with Gorshin and Little. He could have made a successful career of any one of those endeavors. When I first heard that this album had been reissued on CD, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Since then, I have given several copies to my friends. For me, Sammy Davis, Jr. was the most talented entertainer who ever lived.
