“All Or Nothing At All” was written by Arthur Altman and Jack Lawrence in 1939. Frank Sinatra first recorded it in 1939 with the Harry James Orchestra. It gained little notice at that point in time. However, Columbia Records reissued it in 1943 during the 1942-1944 Musicians’ Strike that prevented creating new recordings. This time around it hit #2 on the charts and became a Frank Sinatra classic.

We may have lost Frank Sinatra in life but His influence on the music business remains undiminished, as his records continue to sell. Many of the films in which he appeared are considered classics, and a number have been remade.

As Frank said :

“The biggest lesson in life, baby, is never be scared of anyone or anything.”
