BEST OF THE REPRISE SINATRA ALBUMS
Anthony Caton | Arkansas. USA | 09/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Man do I miss FS! Years ago I went through a divorce and the album version of this set helped nurse me through the pain. The songs (written by soul-mate Rod McKuen specifically for Sinatra) are perfect for Frank. The angst is almost unbearable on "Promise to Promise." The title track and "The Single Man" will linger in your mind in a haunting way. "Love's Been Good To Me" seems almost out of place in this gloomy compilation. "Man Alone" ranks just behind "Where Are You?," "Only the Lonely," "No One Cares," and "September of My Years," in my Sinatra catalog."
A deep and emotional album.

"This album was not a great commercial success but the songs, arranging and the overall theme are superb.If you are down and alone and think life has done u in, you MUST have this one."
A Man Alone is the Real Frank
R. P. Storch | Denver, CO United States | 03/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of my favorite Sinatra records. The Only time Frank does an entire album of one composer songs and he pick Rod McKuen. To quote Mckuen from his "Frank Sinatra An Appreciation" "Running Jumping Standing Still, Frank Sinatra is the tallest man I know. The story goes, Rod ask Frank to do one of his songs. Frank took a look at the stuff and said "Rod I'll cut an entire album of your stuff". A Man Alone was made during March of 1969 and we find Frank in great voice, singing about being alone with a honesty that only Frank can express I believe this may be as close to the real Frank as we'll find again for the rest of his recording career. This is one of the last times that Frank goes out a limb and does something different and his hits a home run
