Frank Sinatra was a pioneer of the 'concept album', where the album's songs were all of an ilk that complimented one another and created an overall mood or theme. Sinatra's themes varied from album to album - there were the saloon/torch songs, the gentle swinging ballads, and in this case, the all-out swinging dance tunes.
This is the finest example of the latter that Sinatra recorded, each song creating a mood perfectly at home on a dance floor in the 50s. There are so many highlights in this album, it's difficult to pick favourites. From the inviting title track to the closing "Last Dance", your spirits will be lifted. I particularly enjoyed Frank's takes on "Something's Gotta Give" and "Day In, Day Out" - simply thrilling! Special mention must also go Billy May's thundering updated arrangement of "Saturday Night" - one of Sinatra's earliest hits from his days with Tommy Dorsey's orchestra in the early 40s.
The original album has been extended by the addition of 4 tracks recorded around the same time period, with a similar theme. Two of these are duets with Keely Smith, and all 4 are highly enjoyable, especially the duet of "How Are You Fixed For Love".
One of Sinatra's all-time best, you won't be disappointed by it!
