Comment:

Inspired recently by this Mix, I decided to compile a mix of Sam & Sammy's in the world of music. And why not? Some fine tracks by little known artists sit comfortably here with the greats such as Cooke and Davis Jr. The Sam Carty track, for instance, probably my favourite song in the world right now..

Thanks to the following for tracks featured on this mix. Thomas_Mohr for the Sammy Davis Jr. Orchid for the Sam Carty. Blasikin for Ernie Smith, and Saaf for both the Sam Chalpin and Sam Ervin..

Major props for Sammy Nestico (Count Basie's arranger for many years) and Sam Butera. Everythings turning up Sammy!

Love the title and the concept. The Prine and T.Rex are just a couple of favorites that jump out at me. Great job...um...uh...what was your name again?

Sam, Sam, Sam, Sam; Sammity-Sam, Sammity-Sam etc... Well, you get the picture, and so does SammyG -- It is, as you would expect me to say -- Samtastic!

I suppose this might work as a soundtrack to "I Am Sam" instead of all those Beatles covers. Quite a compilation!

What about Sam 69 or The Sam Lies Down On Broadway?OK, now I've got that out of my system where is Goodbye Sam, Hello Samantha or Sam by ONJ? I'm just nitpicking because I'm jealous, I couldn't do this with my stupid name. Sam United, almost as good as that dodgy team you support.

Damn. You really are one narcissistic bastard. I bet you think this mix is about you. Don't you? Don't you? You know I love to kid the Sam man. This does look excellent, and I'm sure you had a great time compiling all the songs recorded and written about your namesake. I wouldn't get very far with Ion. Play it again, Sam :)

what a terrific 'sam'ple of great tunes from your collection. I agree; the Sam Carty song really is great. also the Ervin version of "Bridge Over..." and Sammy tracks by Smith, Davis Jr., Fletcher, Jones (of course), Taylor and especially Sam Rosen! I'm afraid Mr. Chalpin's "Satisfaction" gave us none, though it did raise some eyebrows. side two favorites were Mark Wirtz, Little Name and "Fireman Sam." of course I was going to mention the omission of the ONJ song, along with suggesting Sam Fan Thomas for the next edition, while thanking you for leaving out Sam Harris altogether. Sam is the man!

This is great. Inspired and fun. It's funny, but I was going to riff on the same Carly Simon song that Moe did... great minds think alike! In the meantime, to chime in to what Bear said, there's no way that there are enough great Robs in musical history to make one of these.

What a shambolic excuse to make a mix like this! Ah well, my ears are digging this one, Sam. Fantastic work.

This mix has serious soul...plenty to sustain me for quite some time.
