February 11, 2018 Record of the Day

“The Way You Look Tonight” was a Doo Wop classic for the Jaguars in 1956. The song was originally done in 1936 by Fred Astaire in the movie “Swing Time.” It won an Academy Award for best original song. In 1961 the song was the first hit for the Lettermen and has been recorded by many over the years. But the big money belongs to the Jaguars. A black vinyl copy with “Moonlight and You” on the flip side, released on R-Dell Records, is worth up to $450.00. A red vinyl copy can sell for $1,200.00 today.
