    This collection of a dozen songs recorded by Frank Sinatra during the 1940s features such career-defining early tracks as his romantic versions of "Autumn in New York," "Nature Boy," and the gorgeous "Lost in the Stars," as well as jaunty favorites like "The Old Master Painter" and "The Coffee Song." There's also "Nancy With the Laughing Face," the sweet song the comedian Phil Silvers penned for Sinatra's daughter, and the bobbysoxers' delight, "I've Got a Crush on You."
