"Why Try To Change Me Now," written by Cy Coleman and Joseph Allan McCarthy, was Frank Sinatra's final recording for Columbia Records, ending a 9 year relationship. Recorded on September 17, 1952 at Columbia's Thirtieth St. studio in New York City, and conducted by Percy Faith, it was released as a 78 and 45 R.P.M single. It can be found on CD on The Voice - The Columbia Years 1943-1952 and The Columbia Years 1943 - 1952 The Complete Recordings. Recorded at a low point in his career, it perfectly captures his emotions at the time. Sinatra had been under a great deal of pressure from Mitch Miller, the head of Columbia's Artists and Repertoire Division to record material that Sinatra considered inappropriate, resulting in his departure from Columbia. This gem was Sinatra's parting shot. He was to record it again in 1959 with Gordon Jenkins for the No One Cares LP, but I feel that the original recording is superior.I do not own the right to the song, audio, or images contained in this video.
