"I Could Have Told You"

My new favorite song:



I didn't know Chuck Brown could sing like that (or like this). He's got a collection of standards here. His CD with Eva Cassidy is here.

"I Could Have Told You" was written by Jimmy Van Heusen and Carl Sigman (of "Marshmallow World" fame). Here's a smouldering take from Esther Phillips.
