LP Artwork: Yesterday I Heard the Rain & I Put a Spell On You

One of Tony Bennett's album releases on CBS in 1968, arranged and conducted by Torrie Zito who was Grammy nominated for his arrangement of the title song.

The melody for Yesterday I Heard the Rain was written by Mexican composer Armando Manzanero and English lyrics were added by Gene Lees.

Three years earlier, Nina Simone released what would become one of her best-selling albums: I Put a Spell On You which, in keeping with this week's theme, includes Tomorrow Is My Turn (L'Amour C'est Comme du Jour).
