When I was 4 years old, I use to take a nap with my head, literally, under the phonograph/tv console (they had legs back then) listening to this song, repeatedly. I can still hear the hissing and crackling sounds from the old 45 as well as smell the warm vinyl from having played it for so long.

Later in my life, while I remembered the song, the vocalists phrasing, the delicate piano fills, and the overall attitude delivered in this version, I could not remember who the vocalist was. I always thought the vocalist was Dinah Washington, however, this version is not the version one would normally find. Finally, after searching for 35 years, I found the right vocalist, and the right version I knew as a child.

This is, in my opinion, Dinah's best arrangement of Cold, Cold Heart.
