The Ink Spots' rendition of I Can't Give You Anything But Love is one of the few songs that can plaster an almost-permanent smile on my face. I'm not sure if this recording was done by the original line-up with Bill Kenny on tenor or one of the various offshoots, but it's a fantastic version of this old standard. If any fellow Ink Spots fans are curious, I got the song off the 2003 Greatest Hits CD from Fabulous.

Jerry Butler once said this about The Ink Spots: "They were the heavywights of quartet singing." Clyde McPhatter said: "We patterned ourselves after them."
