What Is This Thing Called Love: The Chairman Of The Board

"Karaoked" as an added bonus

Recorded on February 16, 1955--and during Sinatra's "I Lost Ava" period of devastating heartbreak, "What Is This Thing Called Love" can be found on the masterpiece "In the Wee Small Hours" album. The beauty of this Cole Porter classic is enhanced by Nelson Riddle's stunning arrangement, while Sinatra delivers flawlessly with sadness and vulnerability that can actually be felt. Ironically, the tone, restraint and tremble in his voice makes his performance movingly strong.
