Alexander, the album features songs written by Cooke and Alexander, as well as some pop standards and Why I Call Her Mine, an original composition by Mel Carter that was released as a single in 1963. Mel Carter was named one of the top 10 male newcomer singers of 1963 by Cash Box and appeared with When A Boy Falls In Love on numerous television shows, including Dick Clark's American Bandstand.
