Sinatra started his recording career already back in 1939, but I think this is one of the oldest of his records in my collection. This was his 5th single with Capitol Records.

When this was released, Sinatra was filming a movie with Doris Day. This single became such a hit that they named that movie after it.

List price:  Very Good+ is $10, Near Mint is $20
