Herb Snitzer's memory of a Davis recording session, reminded me of the day I was priviledged to sit in on his recording at RCA on Sunset Blvd. of "Sit Down You're Rocking the Boat." After a third successful recording Sammy jumped up on a table and with joy and agility started to dance, it was an amazing moment in time indelled on my heart. His voice was perfect pitch, and he IS the best singer of the Rat Pack! IMHO Sandra Miner
