40 Year Itch: Sammy!

"All in all, I'd say all my dreams came true"
-Sammy Davis, Jr

On November 16, 1973, NBC and General Electric presented "Sammy!", a TV special starring Sammy Davis, Jr. MGM followed the performance with a soundtrack album. There are moments here that capture the glitz and glitter of 1973 better than anything Marc Bolan or David Bowie did: like this cover of the 1971 Chase hit "Get It On!" 

That's a lot of yellow!
