Dean and Sammy –

Rare Performance Together –

Hope you Enjoy this performance with Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Junior performing “The Birth of the Blues” and “Sam’s Song”

“The Birth of the Blues” is a popular song.

This is a great piece featuring Dean and Sammy performing the Birth of the Blues and Sam Song. They were in great form back in the day. Worth watching as these two great performers make us smile. Wish they were still here.

The song “Birth of the Blues” was written by Ray Henderson, the lyrics by Buddy G. DeSylva and Lew Brown. It was published in 1926, recorded in 1927 by “Whispering” Jack Smith, the Hamilton Sisters and Fordyce (Three X Sisters), and by Cab Calloway, in 1943 or 1944. It was later a hit for Frank Sinatra and was frequently performed by popular singers such as Bing Crosby, Sammy Davis, Jr., Shirley Bassey, Keely Smith, Jack Teagarden, Pearl Bailey, Deana Martin and Al Hirt. In 1965 Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Johnny Carson performed it live at a televised session for “The Frank Sinatra Spectacular”.

Deana Martin recorded the song in 2006. It was included on her 2006 album Memories Are Made of This released by Big Fish Records.

An Oscar nominated (Music Scoring) film “Birth of the Blues” starring Bing Crosby was released in 1941.

And “Sam’s Song” – well….

Here’s a happy tune you’ll love to croon
They call it Sam’s song
It’s catchy as can be, the melody
They call it Sam’s song

Nothin’ on your mind
And then you’ll find you’re hummin’ Sam’s Song………..

Just Great Stuff! Everybody Loves Dean and Sammy
