About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded The Skyscraper Blues for his 1959 album Hometown, My Town. I chose this song today for my co-blogger’s 11-year-old son Sam. Apparently, Hometown, My Town is being played a lot in the family car and Sam especially likes this song. He likes the sound of the brass and the energy of the song. Sam, so do I.
The Skyscraper Blues, as well as the full Hometown, My Town album, is available from iTunes.
