A New collection of hard to find ditties-GREAT FUN
S. Henkels | Devon, Pa United States | 12/05/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Every cut here is first rate Frank,and they are mostly hard to find anywhere else. The most outrageous piece is "Boys Night Out",never released before and sitting in the vault for over 30 years. It's the all-time frat boy party song. Are you a frat man? Well,hold off on a few beers,and buy this instead. No doubt,the funniest Frank song ever recorded,and maybe the funniest song ever recorded period.And a smashing Billy May chart to boot. Here is the full length version of "Luck Be A Lady",an eternal rabble rouser guaranteed to blow away the crowd. And another rarity I vaguely remember on the radio as a very young fellow in pre-Beatles days,"Come Blow Your Horn" to round out the party.Frank also starred in the movie in 1963. More great melody and lyrics from the Cahn/Van Heusen team!! "Miracles" is another amusing tune specially written for the very young and young at heart,also by Cahn/Van Heusen.Rounding out my favorites here is the most knockout version of "Pick Yourself Up",an old Jerome Kern number restyled here (1962!),but even though it's almost 40 years old, it is as timeless as they come. The rest of this unique collection is worth checking out,too.This may be the most out and out "fun" album in Frank's monumental oeuvre,and is a very welcome recent addition!"
Sinatra's best album of 1998
Jon Warshawsky | San Diego, CA USA | 06/09/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Okay, so this isn't really a new album -- just a fun collection. You might want to own this because several of the songs are from fairly obscure albums and hard to get otherwise. "Boys Night Out" is classic Billy May, "Luck be a Lady" is as fun as ever, and "Here's to the Losers" belongs here.Serious Sinatraphiles may pass on this one, but it's a fabulous CD to have in the car with the top down!"
A perfect upbeat concept album
Alexander M. Moir | Huntington, NY | 10/03/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)
""Lucky Numbers" is another disc that demonstrates that the Chairman was as capable at upbeat casino music as he was at melancholy crooning. Tracks like "New York, New York," "Luck Be a Lady," and "Here's to the Losers" show the happy-go-lucky side of Sinatra just as "In the Wee Small Hours" (which is possibly the downbeat companion to this album) shows his longing, sad side. "Lucky Numbers" won't disappoint any fan who can appreciate Frank's versatility."
