Biography

Only Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson can rival Frank Sinatra for biggest-selling solo artist of all time. His jazz-influenced singing remained internationally renowned whatever whims, fashions or innovations were introduced by new generations. In a solo career that included over 70 albums and hundreds of singles, from the late-30s until the mid-90s, Sinatra remained universally loved even as ... Read more in Amazon's Frank Sinatra Store

"Christmas Collection for the Entire Family ~ Frank Sinatra" 26 Oct. 2004
By J. Lovins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Reprise and the Sinatra Family bring together a rare find "The Christmas Collection", featuring the head of the clan Mr. Frank Sinatra in fine voice for this special time of the year ~ classic arrangements from Harry Betts, Don Costa, Jack Holloran, Nelson Riddle and Dick Reynolds...with Fred Waring & His Pennsylvanians, Jimmy Joyce Singers & Orchestra and Nelson Riddle & His Orchestra...joining in the seasonal splendor are his children Tina, Nancy and Frank Jr., making this Christmas all the more special.

Performances cover several decades of Frank's career, including a few with Bing Crosby like "WE WISH YOU THE MERRIEST" and "GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN" [1964], featuring Fred Waring & His Pennsylvanians from "The Twelve Songs Of Christmas" ~ "THE CHRISTMAS SONG" and "WHITE CHRISTMAS" [1957], previously unissued from "Happy Holidays With Bing & Frank" an ABC segment from The Frank Sinatra Show with Nelson Riddle & His Orchestra, a nostalgic outing for the two crooners and Riddle...you can tell they are having a blast.

All of the Sinatra's join in with "I WOULDN'T TRADE CHRISTMAS", "THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS" and "THE BELLS OF CHRISTMAS (Greensleeves)" [1968], featuring Tina, Nancy, Frank Jr. and Dad(Frank), with Nelson Riddle arrangements from the album "The Sinatra Family Wish You A Merry Christmas", sounds like a tree trimming gathering as the Jimmy Joyce Singers & Orchestra put the final touches on the decorations...Frank seems the happiest with his children around him.

The closing bonus track of "SILENT NIGHT", the vocal recorded on August 27, 1991...orchestral was arranged and added by Johnny Mandel featuring Bill T. Miller [celeste], Al Viola [guitar], Ron Anthony [guitar], Chuck Berghofer [bass], Julie Berghofer [harp], Larry Bunker [percussion], Jim Hughart [bass], recorded and conducted by his son Frank Jr. on March 25, 2004 ~ this tender and emotional track will bring a tear to your eye...you'll remember how much we miss "Ole Blue Eyes"...they'll never be another like 'em, but we have him in our hearts...just the way it should be!

Total Time: 53:46 on 18 Tracks ~ Reprise 76542 ~ (10/26/2004)

Not Nearly as Good as "Christmas Songs by Sinatra" 20 Dec. 2006
By J. Katz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Bought this CD on the basis of the good reviews here. I like it, but overall, I don't think it touches the quality Frank gives us on "Christmas Songs by Sinatra."

This version relies on lots and lots of choral support -- which isn't my preferred way to hear Sinatra.

"Christmas Songs by Sinatra" contains more straight Sinatra. Also, it has more traditional songs, whereas this CD has lots of songs that I don't think Frank sings as well as the old standards.

Don't get me wrong, I think this CD is fine. But I'd recommend "A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra" and "Christmas Songs by Sinatra" IF you prefer Sinatra singing classic Christmas songs largely on his own.

The only Sinatra holiday set containing stereo tracks; replaces "The Sinatra Christmas Album" 18 Dec. 2006
By Steve - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're looking for a Frank Sinatra holiday music collection that contains his holiday recordings post 1960, then this album is the only way to go. This set supercedes the old 1994 Reprise CD "The Sinatra Christmas Album". "The Christmas Collection" has all thirteen tracks that the "The Sinatra Christmas Album" contained (albeit fully remastered), plus an additional five tracks (four of which are previously unreleased):

- "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm" (recorded on December 21, 1960 and taken from the 1961 Reprise album "Ring-A-Ding Ding!")
- "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" (a recording taken from the Sinatra TV special "Happy Holidays with Bing & Frank" that aired on December 20, 1957)
- "The Christmas Song" (a duet with Bing Crosby that aired on the same 12/20/1957 TV special as the above track)
- "White Christmas" (another duet with Bing Crosby that aired on the same 12/20/1957 TV special as the two above tracks)
- "Silent Night" (vocals recorded by Frank on August, 27 1991; orchestral track recorded on March 23, 2004)

"The Christmas Collection" is also the only current Sinatra holiday album that contains a majority of its tracks in stereo sound (as was the case with "The Sinatra Christmas Album"). But I personally still prefer Sinatra's 1957 holiday album that he recorded for Capitol Records ("A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra"), which was arranged by Gordon Jenkins (even though it's entirely in mono sound). Sinatra's other holiday collection that's still in print (the 1994 Sony compilation "Christmas Songs by Sinatra") contains the holiday tracks he recorded for Columbia Records during the 1940s, and it's also a good set, but still not quite on par with his 1957 holiday album.

Nice assortment of Franks Christmas stuff 25 Oct. 2006
By Bob Wible - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A good cd compiling some tracks from the Sinatra Family album, some singles, stuff from Franks 1957 tv special with Bing, and tracks from the long out of print "12 songs of C-mas." This is a nice update of Reprise's "Sinatra Christmas Album." If you have that already, I would still recommend this update. If you don't, skip it and get this. Nice liner notes and some rare material including the long lost Silent Night take make this a five star unit. Silent Night isn't of the best vocal quality (Frank was aged and ailing), but he's trying, and it's nice to have for archival reasons. If you're just starting out a C-mas album collection, start with "Jolly Christmas" and this one. Then work your way to "Christmas Songs by Sinatra". Lastly, if still interested in even more holiday cheer from the Chairman, investigate "The Sinatra Family Wish you a Merry Christmas." THis one will be in heavy rotation for years to come (they're running out of stuff to release, so watch out for repackages soon). I hope you allow Frank's Christmas Collection to be the soundtrack to a great holiday season this year, and I thank you for visiting my review as I wish you a happy holiday season.

Not the best or happiest 8 Dec. 2004
By Mr. R. B. Ager - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As a long-time fan of Sinatra from over the pond, I've never thought that he was that interested in Christmas, or at least the seasonal songs of Christmas. His album for Capitol was OK, but not up there with the likes of Nat Cole, or Perry Como, or even Dean Martin. This collection from Warners doesn't do much to change my mind.

It has been gathered from a number of sources, including a 1964 album with Fred Waring and his Pennsylvanians, one from 1968 with his family, a one-off Christmas single, un-released snippets from a 1957 TV show, and a recording of "Silent Night", for charity, in 1991.

Highlights are "The Christmas Waltz", and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". The numbers with Fred Waring and chorus are good too, although on some of them there's precious little Sinatra solo; in fact "Go Tell It On The Mountain" is nearly all Bing Crosby.

Crosby takes the lion's share of the three short duets taken from the 1957 TV show - Sinatra joins in, reluctantly and out of time, at the end. The family album must have sounded a good idea at the time, but the songs now sound toe-curlingly embarassing. And he sounds distinctly uncomfortable singing "Little Drummer Boy".

"Christmas Memories", a single from 1975, is a maudlin tune, reminiscent of "I Will Drink The Wine", belying the lyric about stringing popcorn and cookies baking in the kitchen, and by this time Sinatra's voice was well beyond its prime, and sounds it.

"Silent Night" was originally recorded with just piano accompaniment, for charity in 1991; it has had an orchestral arrangement by Johnny Mandel added to it now. Daughter Nancy admits, in the booklet and the DVD, that he was unwell and had to be coaxed (to put it kindly) to do it. I cannot describe how painful it is to listen to this track - he's struggling for breath and it was clearly torture for him; I was just glad he made it through to the end.

The "bonus" DVD, all seven minutes of it, has soundbites from members of the family, Johnny Mandel and the Sinatra alumni, gathered to record the orchestral backing for "Silent Night", then the recording itself, with very brief flashes of a young Sinatra and a Christmas tree.

Throughout all of this the orchestral backing, arrangements and production are as good as you expect with any Sinatra recording; with the involvement of Nelson Riddle, Jack Halloran and Johnny Mandel they couldn't be anything else. It is Sinatra's vocal input that falls short in many ways, which is a shame. I prefer to remember him at his peak, rather than trying to eke out one last song in the twilight of his years.
