Can't Take My Eyes Off You (Bob Gaudio, Bob Crewe) 4.26
Mark Steyn, vocals
with orchestra arranged and conducted by Kevin Amos
from the album Goldfinger
In his tribute to the late Bob Crewe at Steyn's Song of the Week, Mark chanced to mention that he himself had made two recordings of this great Sixties hit, but didn't like either of them. So many readers wrote in asking what they were like that he decided to have one more crack at the song. With a great alto sax solo by Nick Mills, this version starts out slow and dreamy and then takes off through a great swinging instrumental that powers all the way through to a killer finale.
