    Sounds similar to Thurl Ravenscroft but I would have to guess it's not him. Sounds a little different. Does anyone know who the singer is? Seems like I've heard him before. It certainly could be Thurl although using a different inflection than he usually did.

    The Mellomen did record with Dinah Shore as did The Sportsmen. My best guess is that it's not Thurl. Whenever I hear a bass solo on a record from that time period, I always listen to see if it's Thurl and I remember thinking it wasn't him.

    I don't think its him, but what gets me is there is something familiar about the voice. I love this track, it is the kookiest hut version of the song.

    I just listened to the song and the men are The King's Men (Bud Linn, Jon Dodson, Rad Robinson, and Ken Darby). Who the women are, I have no clue. The bass is Ken Darby. I guess all those years of listening to "Fibber McGee and Molly" paid off :)
