Bob Shane's finest solo? You bet!
Yes I know, Bob recorded a lot of great solos on those Kingston Trio albums, but "It Was A Very Good Year" happens to be my favorite. As Max puts it, like an old friend!
Frank Sinatra heard this song on his car radio, one evening, and phoned Capitol Records, next morning, asking if they intend to release it as a single?
They told him no, so Frank decided to record it himself, and it became a big hit for him. One of many. Frank always had high hopes!
