As we continue our playing of live performances this week, the song of the day for Tuesday, June 11, 2013 is Sing You Sinners.”
About This Song
“Sing You Sinners” was written by W. Franke Harling and Sam Coslow and used in the 1930 film Honey, starring Lillian Roth. Even though Bing Crosby starred in a 1938 musical called Sing You Sinners, this song was not used in that film.
About This Version
Today’s live version is from the 1962 Tony Bennett at Carnegie Hall concert. The complete concert edition of the album is a masterpiece and is rightly considered one of the greatest live vocal live performance recordings ever made.
“Sing You Sinners,” as well as the complete Tony Bennett at Carnegie Hall album, is available from iTunes.
