"I Could Write A Book" written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart for the 1940 Broadway musical Pal Joey, was originally recorded by Frank Sinatra for Columbia Records on January 7, 1952 in Hollywood with Axel Stordahl arranging and conducting. In his biography of Sinatra, titled Frank The Voice, James Kaplan writes "..."I Could Write A Book" marked a new artistic peak. Singing with beautiful simplicity and perfect diction, Frank sounded like the artist he was fated to become after he had crossed the valley of the shadow of death. He made a great song sound so believably brand-new ,,, it practically glistened with dew. He was to record it again on August 13, 1957 for the soundtrack of the film version on the Capitol label (previously uploaded).
