"... jazz has no monument more towering than Louis Armstrong. Here he transforms a platitudinous ditty that, done by any other singer, would make us cringe and instead makes us rapturous. What other voice so embodied dignity, heartache, humor, compassion and downright love of life?"
- Jazz.com

This album contains the original 1967 recording of the title track, a song that will forever be associated with Louis Armstrong. Originally written for Tony Bennett who turned it down, Armstrong's single sold over a million copies and made it to number one on the UK singles chart upon its release. Although it failed to chart in the US the first time around, its inclusion in the 1988 hit film Good Morning, Vietnam breathed new life into the song which finally broke into the US top 40.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
