well, it did until it was blocked on copyright grounds (do they not see that these music vids are basically free advertising for their albums?)

anyhow, gorgeous song from the wonderful In A Broadway Bag album, probably Darin's best album of standards with his version of Don't rain on my Parade being the standout and probably the best known after it was used to great effect in American Beauty. It's a pity Sinatra never got around to The Other Half Of Me, for it is a wonderful song and Darin sings it brilliantly. The album also contains a bluesy take on Feeling Good. The album used to be available on a CD with The Shadow of your Smile album and a few rarities from the period. Not sure if its still available (amazon is quoting 1 month for delivery!). but well worth picking up if you can find it.
