    Earlier today I heard Harry Connick Jr. singing " Who Can I turn To" and wondered if Frank had ever recorded it, as I haven't got it by him and thought how it would be right up his street... I have it by Sammy Davis Jr.... On doing a quick search I found this thread, and wondered if it's available on CD anywhere? Maybe on one of the box sets I still don't have. I see it was a B side.

    Frank never did it and the Who Can I Turn to here would be a different song, as the "original" as by Bennett, Matt Monro and others was published in 1964, and is from a British musical after Dorsey had died. The Dorsey/Stafford tune is from 1942 here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mqx8c5fkJs

    Must be a different song then. Thanks Nick, I did wonder. I think Frank would have sang a marvellous rendition. I just noticed I have it by Tony too, on his latest duets album with Queen Latifah.

    Yeah he was the only one out of several recordings (Bassey included) who had a minor hit with it in the 60's. I saw Tony duet it with Leona Lewis at the Palladium last year.

    Although I haven't heard Leona, from the versions I have heard I think I prefer it as a solo.

    On one of our earliest dates, I took Eunice to see Matt Dennis, at an elegant jazz club called The Roundtable. Composer Dennis sang all of his terrific standards, including "Will You Still Be Mine?", "Let's Get Away From It All," "Violets For Your Furs," and "Everything Happens To Me."

    A lovely, memorable evening!

    Tina, this recording of "Who Can I Turn To" was written by Alec Wilder and William Engvick, and, as Nick mentioned in post #3, it features a vocal by Jo Stafford. According to the liner notes, this version was recorded on September 18, 1941.

    The Dedicated To You LP was reissued on CD (pictured below) by Sony Music in 2006. See the FS Discography listing here.

    Thanks Andrew, I'll look out for the CD.

    Curious, which version does Frank Jr. Sing... Anyone?

    On Young Love For Sale I'm certain its the newer version which had just been written. The original on the album in this thread is obscure. Will have to dig out the vinyl to confirm.
