About This Version
Well, it’s been three whole months since I’ve chosen “The Rules of the Road” as the song of the day. I absolutely, completely, totally love this song and cannot and will never get enough of hearing it. Besides, sometimes we all need a little reminding about the rules of the road.
Today’s version is from Tony’s 1964 album When Lights Are Low, featuring Tony and the Ralph Sharon Trio, with Hal Gaylord on bass and Billy Exiner on drums.
