Not Overdone After All

I feared this would be cloying when I listened to it again after 40 years, and they would play the cuteness angle too hard.  Nope.  They get the sense and tone of Milne without overdoing it.

This one as well. I feared that Davis might do some Copa shtick with this, but he gets it right, and as a cover, I think it's better than either Walker's or the NGDB.

Even toward the end, Sammy creeps up on that too-smooth move, but he backs off. Very nice.

Good style from Sammy Davis Jr. I do like the original Jerry Jeff Walker version the best.
