Richard Kimble ...In Action

The Impossible Dream
Richard Kimble ...In Action
V.I.P. Vista International Recording

Hardcore lounge album with a lovely action cover and some great songs. Kimble does a Jolson Medley which includes Mammy. Yes, that's right. But he also covers My Way. You think Frank Sinatra would have closed the book on that song, but apparently every lounge singer on the planet saw this as an invitation to shoot themselves in the head. Kimble doesn't stop with My Way, he goes on to cover I've Got To Be Me, Memories AND The Impossible Dream... and he still finds the time to shoehorn a Charlie Rich Medley into the mix.

The jacket notes state that "America has acquired another undiscovered super star". To dream the impossible dream... that's what America is all about.

  1. Wow. I played the drums for Richard in 77-78. As a young 18 y.o. I learned alot from that experience. The man could definitely sing.
