Did You Know?

Trivia:

Best known for his faithful 1982 cover of Irving Berlin's "Puttin' on the Ritz". A novel idea at the time, he then put his own spin on other Irving Berlin standards, as well as songs by Glenn Miller, but none caught on. Today, though he still makes music, he is considered a one-hit-wonder.
