Oh, just buy that Capitol Collectors Series greatest hits set and be done with it. The man had one of the most astounding baritone voices in all of music history. "Unforgettable" just has to be one of the most heart-felt, sincere recordings ever. It was played at my mom's wedding...and it was played at mine. I think it's safe to assume that it'll be played when my daughter gets married. Yeah...it's THAT timeless.
