About This Version
Today, I’m featuring Tony’s 1964 version of “The Rules of the Road.” It was recorded for the album When Lights Are Low; the accompaniment is from the Ralph Sharon Trio, with Sharon on piano, Hal Gaylord on bass, and Billy Exiner on drums. Unlike Bennett’s first recording of today’s song in 1961, this one is more introspective. Of course, as you may already know, I love this song very much and think all of Tony Bennett’s recordings of it are just fantastic.
