A Fool Such As I – A Taste of Honey – 24K Gold Music Shows
Here is another set of songs from a live 24K Gold Music Show featuring two classic oldies songs. The first song was one of Elvis’s hits from 1959. He recorded this song while on leave from the Army, not long before he left to serve overseas in Germany. The song was written by Bill Trader, and originally released as a single by country singer Hank Snow in 1953. Several other popular artists recorded the song as well.
The 24K Gold Music Show version is a tribute to Elvis Presley’s rendition. It features David singing bass which was originally provided by singer Ray Walker in Presley’s recording. The girls join Doyle and David providing dynamic backup vocals and dancing, making it a unique version of the Elvis hit.
The second song in this set, A Taste of Honey, is an instrumental that became very popular in 1965 by Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass. The 24K Gold Music Show band is featured in this classic instrumental accompanied by the junior dancers, going back in time to the 1960’s.
There have been many 8-year-old boys take a shiny trumpet out of the case and begin to learn how to play, but Herb Alpert has taken the trumpet to levels only he dreamed possible. Selling over 72 million records, he has released 28 albums, 14 of which went to platinum status. In his career he has won 8 Grammy Awards, including one for “A Taste of Honey”. He has held the number one spot on Billboard’s Top 100 for both vocal and instrumental recordings. He has won a Tony Award, and has been awarded The National Medal of Arts by the President of The United States. His love for music and his unique sound are evident as soon as you hear the first few notes of any piece that he plays.
