Nevertheless and The Rose In Her Hair

I could not find these two songs that our pal Archiefit (Lee) talked about on you tube. So I uploaded the songs myself. They are among Bing's best from his later days. I dedicate them to my off and on friend Lee. LOL

Re: Nevertheless and The Rose In Her Hair

Those are my 2 very favorite old Bing songs, not to mention 2 of my very favorite Bing songs period.   Thanks for making it official to those who may not be familiar with those beauties.  I think they are perfect arrangements incorporating band and singer to the very best effect possible.

Just love the resonance in his voice.  A voice never to be matched.

Re: Nevertheless and The Rose In Her Hair

I always liked Bing's 1976 version of Nevertheless, but I always passed over The Rose In Her Hair. I just listened to it again because of Lee talking about it, and it is fabulous.

I wish they would give the "Feels Good Feels Right" album a proper re-issue. My friend from Englad made me a copy of a CD version he had which had three unreleased tracks on it: "At Last", "That Old Black Magic" and "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You". 

What a great album!

Twp splendid songs sung so well by 73-yr-old Bing. I'm guessing that 'The rose in her hair' was written for a motion picture.

The song was written by Al Dubin and Harry Warren (composers of 42nd Street) for the 1935 musical The Broadway Gondolier. Dick Powell introduced it in the movie.
