Al Jolson (born Asa Yoelson; May 26, c. 1886 – October 23, 1950) was an American singer, film actor, and comedian. At the peak of his career, he was dubbed "The World's Greatest Entertainer". His performing style was brash and extroverted, and he popularized a large number of songs that benefited from his "shamelessly sentimental, melodramatic approach". Numerous well-known singers were influenced by his music, including Bing Crosby.
Blood, Sweat & Tears ~ I'm surprised their music doesn't get more airplay on "classic" rock stations. David Clayton Thomas had an outstanding voice. Favorite song: "Spinning Wheel", but I liked almost everything they did.
