Carl Sigman: Carl Sigman Songs

Carl Sigman was one of the great American songwriters of the 20th century. With a career spanning six decades, he created the music – but more often the lyrics – to songs popularized by Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holliday, Nat King Cole, Louis Prima, Elvis Presley, Dean Martin, Linda Ronstadt, Van Morrison, Merle Haggard and others. This collection was compiled by his sons, because their father, when alive, wanted people to pay attention to the songs – not the man behind them.
