Nice performance, although, I don't recall ever hearing Roger Whittaker do this song any injustice. He clearly loves the lyric and relished working with Chet Atkins. An expanded version of the Perry Como album, Just Out of Reach, has just been released. This country-flavoured project was produced by Atkins, and is a gem of an album that finds Como warm-voiced and reflective throughout a great track-list that includes Kristofferson, Lennon/McCartney, Rod McKuen and Johnny Mandel. I recommend it highly.

The Last Farewell is such a touching song. But I think Elvis did the better job. Wish he had sung it live!
