Eddie Fisher - 'Inside of Heaven'

Maybe this doesn't really belong in a jazz blog but Eddie Fisher was a good ballad singer and he did begin his vocal career as a crooner with the bands of Buddy Morrow and Charlie Ventura so perhaps it is worthy of a mention.
Plus, before I discovered jazz, I used to buy Eddie Fisher records so I guess I have an excuse for feeling 'Downhearted' and any guy who could pull Debbie Reynolds and Elizabeth Taylor has my admiration.
Rest In Peace.
Eddie Fisher died aged 82 on Sept. 20, 2010.
