Given Sammy Davis Jr.'s fame and celebrity, his actual recordings are curiously unknown and neglected. Apart from the fluke '70s hit, "The Candyman, one could be forgiven for thinking that he hardly recorded at all. But record he did and prolifically too, starting in the '50s on the Decca label, many of which tracks are collected here on the 2009 Micro Werks collection SAMMY'S SWINGINEST SIDES. Davis was in many ways the ultimate show business personality, a show-stopping performer equally gifted at singing, dancing, acting, and even impersonations--check out his smash version of "Because of You Pts. 1 & 2 " in which the singer runs through a vocal repertoire of Nat "King" Cole, Billy Eckstine, Frankie Laine etc and then, topping that, on the flip side does uncanny takes on James Cagney, Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, and even Lionel Barrymore! Not every track is so exhaustive (or exhausting) but all do feature a supremely talented young singer at the peak of his powers. What Davis lacks in introspection, he makes up for in energy, timing, and an erring sense of pitch; he's pretty musical for all the pizzazz, hip asides, and Jerry Lewis references. Carmen McRae makes a surprise and welcome appearance on the frisky "A Fine Romance."
