“So Rare” was recorded November 11, 1956 and released in January of 1957. It went 
to the #2 Billboard position and remained on the charts for 26 weeks. It became the 
highest charting song by a big band during the first decade of the rock and roll era. 

(A note from this blogger: This was the very first record I purchased with part of my
weekly allowance at age 14.)
