However, the verse opens both of Mr. Sinatra's commercial recordings -- the first for Columbia, arranged and conducted by Axel Stordahl, waxed on December 3, 1944, and originally released as a 78-rpm single, which featured on the flip side, "Stormy Weather" (music by Harold Arlen, lyrics by Ted Koehler); and Frank's second version for Reprise, arranged and conducted by Nelson Riddle, cut on February 18, 1963, and part of "The Concert Sinatra" LP, which has been reissued on an import CD, unveiled by Universal Distribution on November 10, 2009.
