Vincent Edwards - Sings (1962)

Here's a record from my celebrity genre, which I found in the HPB bargain bin for only 50 cents. Vince Edwards recorded this during the height of his "Ben Casey" fame. I never saw the show, and I really don't remember Vince Edwards, although I'm sure I've seen him in some old movies or as a guest star on a TV show. Based on his dark rugged looks, I expected his voice to be deep, low, and maybe gruff; I did not expect to hear a tenor. And I think I read someplace that he was discovered by Bing Crosby. All in all, a pleasant record full of the familiar standards. Hmmm... I just realized that I've posted records by several TV doctors - Richard Chamberlain (Young Dr. Kildare), Chad Everett (Medical Center), and now Vince Edwards. I have to say that my favorite is Chad Everett (since he's the only one of the three I remember), but my favorite TV doctor of all time was... Marcus Welby! Too bad Robert Young didn't record an album.
