Frank Sinatra She Shot Me Down on 180g LP
Throughout his 60-year career, Ol' Blue Eyes demonstrated a remarkable ability to thrive in changing times, moving deftly from the swing era to the rock-and-roll era. He performed on more than 1,400 recordings, was awarded 31 gold, nine platinum, three double platinum and one triple platinum album by the Recording Industry Association of America. He also appeared in 58 films and produced eight motion pictures.
Sinatra began the golden age in which American popular music became a universal language and this extraordinary creative genius is its most articulate spokesman worldwide. His contribution to our life and times extends far beyond his music, to embrace an exuberance, a zest for life, a sense of style and a glorious self-confidence that define, for all time, what it meant to be young at heart and have the world on a string. His spirit and vision continue to be defined by the wisdom and insight from the legacy of work he left behind.
1981's She Shot Me Down is the last album Sinatra cut for Reprise Records - the label he founded - and the second to last studio effort of his brilliant career. Produced by Don Costa and arranged and conducted by longtime Sinatra collaborator Gordon Jenkins, the Chairman of the Board called the release, “a complete saloon album...tear-jerkers and cry-in-your-beer kind of things,” and it stands tall as one of his finest latter day offerings.
