Synopsis

Amazon.com
It's hard to imagine now, but Frank Sinatra was one of pop's original teen heartthrobs (not that the "talents" in the Backstreet Boys or 'N Sync should hold their breath!), a slender young crooner with a sweet delivery and a demeanor that hadn't yet been toughened by hard knocks, a broken heart, and helping close a few too many saloons. This album not only collects 15 of the romantic ballads that helped build Frankie's legend, it's a virtual valentine card to both Sinatra novices and collectors alike. Cut between 1943 and 1952, these songs reveal a singer whose pure, warm tones may surprise those who only know him from his swingin', gin-slingin' Rat Pack persona. There are indeed musical precursors to that era (Gershwin's "Embraceable You" and the future Dino theme "Everybody Loves Somebody"), but they're performed with a gentle sincerity more akin to Bing Crosby. Seasoned Sinatraphiles should also be pleased; nearly half the cuts here are previously unreleased alternate takes that give further insight into the roots and evolution of his remarkable gift for phrasing. --Jerry McCulley

CD Reviews

A 5 Star Collection From The 5 Star Singer !!
Irvin Goodman | 05/31/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Every song in the CD is a true winner that has been digitally remastered, so we can enjoy some of Frank's best as though they were recorded using today's technology. These 15 tracks are from the 40's and early 50's. Some of the "alternate takes" of these great Columbia recordings are presented for our enjoyment. Be prepared for nearly an hour of pure enjoyment."

This Is Why They Called Him "The Voice"
R. DePalma | New York, New York United States | 04/25/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is this smooth silky flawless baritone sound that earned Sinatra the nickname, "The Voice". The recordings on this CD represent the best of his early sound. This sound is pre-booze, pre-women and pre-smoking. These are the things that eventually changed the "Voice" from it's pristine clarity. In fact Sinatra himself admitted that he smoked so that the "Voice" took on a darker texture. Few Singers have had a career in which their voices took on totally new physical Sounds as did Sinatra. Though I personally prefer the sound of Sinatra in the Fifties, This CD is a must buy for any fan. He may be gone but these recordings will be reproduced for generations to come!"
