Once again, I have been enjoying the PBS series on TV entitled "Rock, Rhythm and Doo Wop." This is the music which influenced me as a young person and still "rocks" me today. How I love Jay Black when he signs "Cara Mia." We were fortunate, two years ago, to see Jay Black in person. He put on a tremendous show, has a wonderful sense of humor, has aged-maybe not so beautifully- but still a very likable man.
I think when you hear this early 1965 recording of "Cara Mia" it will bring back memories. Mind you, this was recorded almost 45 years ago and he still has that beautiful falsetto voice and can hit the notes and hold them the full time. I absolutely love hearing this sung by Jay Black!!
Blogger will not let me get the youtube video up for you to click on, but this will take you to it. Enjoy!!
