Why I recommend "Classic Sinatra" — 5 years ago
If you’re looking for an intro to Frank’s music, this is a great one. Most of the hits are here from his Capitol years (the 50s). Many of his best “swinging” songs are included, like “I Get a Kick Out of You”, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, and “The Lady Is A Tramp.” Even if you’re already a fan (like I am), it’s nice to have a lot of your favorites on one album. It’s fun to put on during a party or to listen to alone. It’s a mood lifter!
And what else can be said about Mr. Sinatra that hasn’t already been said? The man sings a song like no one else could. His phrasing was revolutionary for its time. And he sings it like he means it. On “One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)” you can practically feel his pain. And that voice. Unmistakable. His nickname? What else? “The Voice.”
