I just put that song in also!  I hadn't seen other posts yet - totally agree!  The sax display is awesome, and when I hear that song, the volume goes up - way up 👌!

Born Too Late: The Poni-Tails    The sax player (whoever he was) did a nice job adding some heft and emotion to what otherwise would have been a simple late 50's girl group tune.

I just had to look it up @1968Hoya46 . The band that played for the song was "Al Tercek and his Orchestra" the sax player listed was "Frank Jencen".
