Sammy Davis, Jr. recorded the song in 1968 while the musical was still running on Broadway, altering the title slightly to "I've Gotta Be Me", and released it as a single late in the year. This version of the song was a surprise hit for Davis, since the musical was not among the more successful shows on Broadway that season. Produced by Jimmy Bowen, Davis' cover of the song peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1969 and remained in the Top 40 for 11 weeks.

On "Summertime" Carmen is nearly drowned out by the orchestra and Sammy has to beat back the orchestra and vocal chorus on too many occasions. He's usually up for it, though; his voice has a magnificent power that might surprise people who know him as just a wisecracking hipster. It never really succeeds as an enjoyable listening experience, because the arrangements are just too proper and academic. They serve to bury the emotion behind the words and weaken the power of the melodies.

Sammy Davis Jr was one of the most complicated personalities in show biz, he was also one of the best performers to ever take the stage, and one of the best voices to ever go down in grooves. The song begins with over a minute's worth of material unknown to me, and from this great beginning Sammy transitions into one of the most emotional, passionate performances of Over the Rainbow I have ever heard; it is simply incredible. One of the most amazing songs on this album is MacArthur Park, a moving song which Sammy infuses with touching nostalgia and melancholia. Two less familiar tracks shine among the gems of this collection: Keeping Out of Mischief Now and All the Things You Are (which is not the more famous song of that title I was expecting).
