Some Low Notes

You know Thurl Ravenscroft as the man who voiced Tony the Tiger saying "They're great!" for so many years. You probably also know him for the song "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" (even though he was discredited on the single). however, you've heard Ravenscroft in many songs and movies. Listen to his lovely bass singing in this compilation. (via Nag on the Lake)

Not to be bragging or anything, but at 66 years old I can consistently hit all but those last two notes.  And I am not a professional singer either.

Now, if you were to take about 20-30 years off my pipes so that I would be the same age as he was when he recorded most of this stuff, I would probably have been able to match him note for note.

Wow. Until now, I was in the Boris
Karloff crowd with regard to Mr. Grinch.
