She could make a standard her own (witness her spirited jaunt through Cole Porter's "From This Moment On"), and she could also discover the qualities worth keeping in songs that weren't quite standards. All About Ronnie: The Bethlehem Recordings 1953-1955 includes 12 tracks of her mid-'50s best, although despite the title it isn't a true Bethlehem compilation; the 12 tracks were indeed recorded throughout her tenure, but they made up a later album titled Chris that was released in 1957, after she had decamped for Atlantic.
