    The Frank Sinatra First Commercial Recording - Brunswick Label 8443, 1939. A 78 record, Brunswick, 8443, A-side 'From the Bottom of My Heart,' B-side 'Melancholy Mood,' labels read in part "Vocal Chorus / Frank Sinatra" and "Harry James / and His Orchestra," with no apparent scratches, with original Brunswick sleeve. (Please note sleeve is somewhat wrinkled and torn due to age.)
    Diameter: 10"

    Recorded on July 13, 1939, this record is noted for being the first commercial recording by the then relatively unknown 23 year-old crooner. According to legend, it is quite rare as only 8,000 copies were pressed.
