The Birth of the Pack


The Rat Pack sings Birth Of The Blues. Who are the Rat Pack? They were a group featuring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop. They sometimes appeared together on stage and in films in the early-1960s, including the movie Ocean's 11. In the clip below, the reported ringleaders of the Rat Pack, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dean Martin, and Frank Sinatra, get a little help from Johnny Carson as they sing the song written by Ray Henderson, the lyrics by Buddy G. DeSylva and Lew Brown in 1926, and recorded by Cab Calloway in the mid 1940s. However, it could be argued the most famous version of the song was by Frank Sinatra, which he often sang with his fellow Rat Packers.
