LP Artwork: Lena Like Latin / Lena Horne
This week's opening track, By Myself, is taken from Lena Horne's 1963 album, Lena Like Latin (aka Lena Goes Latin). The pulsating arrangements were written by Shorty Rogers and Marty Paich with orchestra conducted by one of Horne's long-time collaborators, Lenny Hayton.
It was initially released on the little-known Charter label and on MGM Records in the UK.
