Hey Sinatra Fans!

If you could own only one Sinatra album, which one would it be? (other than compilations)
My first thought was "In the wee small hours".......but after thinking a moment, decided it would definitely be "Live at the Sands" w/Count Basie's orchestra.
Ring-a-ding-ding!!!

Interesting Mike, I had never even heard of this one before you mentioned it. Went back and looked it up...kind of an interesting story behind it.

Yep, Did you notice wrote and produced that album?
Bob Gaudio / Charles Calleo and Jake Holmes. Bob Gaudio is an original 4 Season who wrote and produced most of their hits.

All songs on that album relate to Bob's wife leaving him and his children.

Why did I ever trade that LP in?

Always liked the Sinatra/Riddle partnership.

How about the Dorsey-Sinatra pairings? I bought several albums of that in an estate sale (and you have no idea how many records I had to sort though to find them), and although they were re-mastered from 78's, they are sill among my favorites.

I was listening to old podcasts from Dennis Prager's show today while doing housework (I'm about 2 weeks behind because of the winter games) and he mentioned that as a classical listener (and conductor), he rarely hears words when he listens to vocal tunes. More of an extra instrument than a lyricist. his exception was Sinatra, and while I'm not a clacisisst, I tend to agree. Sinatra was a talent all his own and will likely never be repeated, if even imitated (Michael Buble and Harry Connick, Jr. do a passable impression).

When I listen to music I listen to the words. When I'm playing in a band, I only concentrate on the music. I listen to the singer's phrasing for timing, but not really the lyrics.
