In this same David Rose set from which this selection comes, is another entitled "All I Desire," from the film of the same name, the theme song having been penned by one David Lieberman.

This represents one of David Rose's best settings, and is everything an arrangement of this nature should be. There is a recurring figure which immediately sets the mood, further accentuated by an accompanying rhythm. The melody and the accompanying elements share the honors in this setting, which once again is uniquely David Rose's, without resorting to what is commonly referred to as his "trademark."

One unfortunate feature of this is that the second presentation of the song of necessity had to be abridged for it to fit on the side of a single 78 or 45 RPM disc. When I play this on the piano, I attempt to reconstruct the missing section so that David Rose's conception may be presented as complete.
