Not the best -- but still fun! Didn't Frankie Laine originally sing that?

Sounds more like Gabby Hayes than Frankie Laine

I was just trying to remember who had done it originally, and, yes, it was Frankie Laine. Don't be so harsh on the singer -- remember, this is a cold, first reading without familiarity to the music.

Here's the Frankie Laine version--conducted by no less than Johnny Williams.

That "pop" version is awful. Better to have no recording at all than make do with that one.
There's only one version worth listening to, and that's the original, with Tiomkin conducting:

What about the version with Kunzel/Cincy Pops? It actually has Lane singing as well.

Yes, that's quite good, apart from the deafening gunshots Telarc decided to insert.
I used my editing software to lower the noise of the gunshots considerably, which helps.
