Come Rain Or Come Shine (Mercer-Arlen) by Margaret Whiting, orchestra conducted by Paul Weston
From the ashes of the ill-fated Johnny Mercer-Harold Arlen Broadway musical “St. Louis Woman” came one of the finest tunes in The Great American Songbook. Introduced on-stage by Ruby Hill and Harold Nicholas (of the Nicholas Brothers), “Come Rain Or Come Shine” is performed here on Mercer’s Capitol Record label by his friend Maggie with a predictably excellent orchestration by Paul Weston.
