Tony Bennett and KD

I've always been a big fan of Tony Bennett's and am waiting patiently until the 19th September when his new c.d. is released. When checking on Amazon you are given a taste of the album with a recording of him and the wonderful K.D. Lang singing "Blue Velvet" This is the link....                                                                                                                                                               Tony Bennett has a fan site on FB which I naturally joined. I wrote to see if anyone had a recording of one of my all time favourite songs sung by Tony, "How do you say Auf Wiederseh'n" I had the vinyl in the 60's. The album is still in this house (somewhere? but at present I am unable to locate it. Mel Torme does a great job of singing it on one of his c.d.'s but Tony is the man for me. Pity I'm unable to go down to the London Palladium in October to see him again. Alas the £135 for a seat was the deciding factor. Hope you are able to hear "Blue Velvet" as he and K.D. do a wonderful job of it.
