Honey On The Vine - Matt Monro

Sometimes, when I get tired of listening to Little Willie John's "Fever" I listen to Matt Monro's "Honey On The Vine" instead. The irresistible finger snapping effect is still the same. Matt was a crooner's class act all the way. When Nat King Cole died Capitol records eventually positioned Matt Monro to fill that unforgettable void. Too bad his obvious talent couldn't outlast his booze soaked liver, or the cancer which caught him at an early 54 years old.
