Cycles (3:09)  -  Gayle Caldwell
Arrangement: Don Costa
From Nancy Sinatra's book "Frank Sinatra, My Father": "'Cycles,' the song, was rerecorded in New York and I had the great pleasure of 'producing' it at my dad's request, so that 'Don can be in the room with me.' What an honor. Of course I had by then proven myself by selling a lot of records of my own. But the fact that Dad trusted me–that meant more than my gold records."
Frank Sinatra with vocal group.
