All Or Nothing At All (1939)

"All or Nothing at All" is a song composed in 1939 by Arthur Altman, with lyrics by Jack Lawrence.
Frank Sinatra's 1939 recording of the song became a huge hit in 1943, when it was reissued by Columbia Records during the 1942-43 musicians' strike. The record peaked in the Billboard top two.

Jimmy Dorsey recorded the first version of this song on June 6, 1939 on the Decca-label (Decca 2580).

Bob Eberly supplied the vocals. Pictured below is the sheet-music.
