The Book
  Beyond Bojangles is not a Sammy Davis, Jr. biography.
His life story has been told in three books in his own words and in further publications by other authors.
But to this day, there has never been a complete documentation of his body of work as the total entertainer. It’s a well-known statement that Sammy Davis, Jr. did it all. Beyond Bojangles tries giving the answer to how he did it all, with presenting the Sammy Davis, Jr. Encyclopedia, including:
  • His complete studio recordings, totaling 660 songs, with session dates and release information
  • The complete official live recordings done for the record labels Decca, Reprise, Motown, MGM and RCA Records, including the unreleased material
