Ed Ames: My Cup Runneth Over (1967)

Ed Ames has had a long and varied career. His had great chart success during the 50's with The Ames Brothers. After the break up of the quartet in 1960, he took up acting and was in several on and off Broadway productions. This led him to a role as the Native American Mingo on the TV show Daniel Boone, which was interesting since his background was Ukrainian.   (The clip is in Spanish...but you get the drift..)

After TV he went back to music as a solo artist and had several hits including this one, which was his highest charting song (#8--1967). Here's Ed Ames with "My Cup Runneth Over"
