Here it is, as played by Harry James, live in Las Vegas:
Harry used almost no vibrato, no schmaltz at all; here he was the serious jazz balladeer without sparkling pyrotechnics, or flashy circus stunts; just some long tones as the song demanded them; a very breathy trumpet sound; a fairylike whisper in the nocturnal desert.
Personnel: Harry James (tp) Ray Sims (tb) Corky Corcoran (ts) Jack Perciful (p) Guy Scalise (g) Red Kelly (b) & Buddy Rich (d), Las Vegas, Spring, 1964.

The above Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most has been transferred by yours truly from a currently unavailable LP-twofer which can be certainly found somewhere else on the internet ;)
