Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's Newsletter features a sentimental favorite song of mine.
BONUS #1 - Ebb Tide - Frank Sinatra
BONUS #2 - Ebb Tide - The Righteous Brothers
"Ebb Tide" is a popular song, written in 1953 by lyricist Carl Sigman and composer Robert Maxwell.
It has been recorded many times, the best-known versions include those by Frank Chacksfield & His Orchestra (1953), a successful vocal version in the same year by Vic Damone and a stunning soulful version by Roy Hamilton, Frank Sinatra (1958), The Platters (1960), Lenny Welch (1964) and the Righteous Brothers (1965). The Righteous Brothers' version was arguably the most successful, peaking at #5 in the US. Jerry Colonna, Earl Grant and Matt Monro also recorded versions. In 1968 Ella Fitzgerald recorded it on her Columbia album, "30 by Ella".
