1955 In the Wee Small Hours-Frank Sinatra, Capitol Records W-581 (1a)

In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning (m. David Mann, w. Bob Hilliard) was introduced as the title track of Frank Sinatra’s 1955 album In the Wee Small Hours.

From the Wikipedia song profile:

It was composed by Mann and Hilliard during a post-midnight session at Hilliard’s New Jersey home. Mann was about to depart for New York when Hilliard insisted he remain to try some impromptu songwriting. Mann reluctantly agreed and eventually came up with the tune, to which Hilliard quickly wrote a lyric.[1]
