.......................................................
*Orange marks notes with questionable registers: absolutely no use figuring out these.
*Blue marks probable non-modal notes.
*Red marks extremely bad, unimpressive or unintentional notes.
*Italics mark non-sung notes.

One of the most famous ballads singers of the 60-70s, not as famous as Tom Jones but a great singer, sounds baritonish to me and he normally sings between E4-A4, but who knows. He has a big discography to check.


This Version of " My Way" it's without any doubt one of the greatest versions and In my opinion it is right on top with Robbie Williams, Elvis and Sinatra covers.( The Original called " Comme d'habitude" by Claude Francois, later written and sung in English as " My Way" by Paul Anka).
Watch from 2:53 he blows up the stage man!

E4 is a worthy high note for almost every singer who's first passagio lands them to break around there.  The only exceptions are singers who have such effortless ranges that E4 is bridged unconsciously enough that it might as well be a low note for them. (Completely my opinion, not to be taken as the standard or anything)

Amazing voice, technically very similar to Tom Jones' (he sounds a lot like Tom on "Release Me"), minus the extra-terrestial higher notes. I'm a huge fan of his vocal tone and vibrato, very flawless and classical-influenced!
