Once Again, It's The Third, Man!

That's right, it's the third day of the month, and that means it's time for another installment of my ever-growing collection of covers of that classic track, Theme From The Third Man. Only one more track this time than last, which means six different takes this time instead of five. I'd hoped to have more, but these things take time. Artists and instruments this month include Ruth Welcome on the, umm, zither, Mark Monte on the cocktail orchestra, Josef Sepp Diepolder on the, err, zither, Henry Jerome on his Brazen Brass (best version here in my humble opinion), another version by Don Costa, this time with only an orchestra (no voices) and a great version by Big Tiny Little on the barroom piano. Sound interesting? Here's a download link for you. Thanks for all those comments last month. I didn't get as many downloads as I see on my Christmas stuff, but the great comments more than make up for that. See you all next month.

I have such great memories of watching the TV show with Michael Rennie and that fine theme. Thanks!

I've always loved this tune, too. Do you have the version by The Beatles? They do a very good job with it, it was very influential on their early career.
