  1. Of course, when I bought that Sammy Davis Jr LP at the flea market years ago, the psych nerd running the joint was appalled that my level of record enthusiasm only rose when I spotted said gem.

  2. You are special boy and that is why we love you.

  3. PS-Best song on that Sammy record is "You're Gonna Love Yourself (In The Morning)."
