Saturday night music vault: I Can't Get Started

To end the week, something I found at random at YouTube ... maybe Sammy Davis Jr.'s last televised performance, on Letterman in 1989. An absolute genius from the start of his career to the end.

That's what differentiates the stars of the past from the jerks and jerkettes of today. The music was timeless, created with the very purpose of always sounding fresh. Today's stuff? 95%, maybe even 99.8% (six sigma) belongs in the Blecch bin.

Have a nice evening, folks.
