After a few days away, it’s nice to come back to my blog with some classic music. “Ol’ Blues Eyes” was never in better form than on this 1960 chart-topping album. In The Wee Small Hours or Watertown might appeal more to the “sad” Frank fan, but with spring just around the corner I’m in the mood for this collection of breezy mid-tempo numbers and ballads.

With acclaimed conductor Nelson Riddle, Sinatra created the definitive versions of such songs as “How Deep Is The Ocean”, “I’ve Got A Crush On You”, and “Embracable You”. No matter how young or old you feel, Frank Sinatra is good for the soul – his voice and delivery is fitting for any occasion and considered the best by many. Mobile Fidelity recently released a gold CD and 180 gram LP of this timeless Capitol album, and it rivals their earlier release in the limited edition vinyl box set. Enjoy.
