Frank Sinatra This Is Sinatra! on 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.
Frank 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. Sinatra's 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.
Originally issued in 1956, This Is Sinatra! is Frank's first collection of singles and B-sides comprised of material he had previously recorded with arranger/conductor Nelson Riddle. The album was released as part of Capitol's "This Is" series and features recordings cut between 1953 and 1955 including classic standards like "I've Got The World on a String," “From Here To Eternity,” “Young At Heart” and “Love And Marriage.” The remarkable versatility that helped make Frank a star is wonderfully displayed throughout the album's 12 selections, making for a warm and rewarding listen for anyone, anywhere.
