Ne T'en Vas Pas - Sylvie Vartan

The only thing that could make Melvin Tormé's ultra-groovy "I'm Comin' Home Baby" even groovier is a 60's mod cover (dig that organ solo!) by the one and only Bulgarian bombshell Sylvie Vartan. This version is off her second LP Twiste Et Chante. The 1963 record consists mainly of pop heavy standards, but when they sound this fun who cares? Not me!

Ne T'en Vas Pas

Here's The Velvet Fog introducing and performing one of his many signature songs. Torme was such a cool cat. I place him alongside Sammy Davis Jr's entertainment caliber and that's saying a lot.
