"Moonlight Sinatra" was a 1965 follow-up to the classic album "September of My Years," which solidified Frank Sinatra's reputation at the age of 50 as the premier vocalist of his generation. The 10 songs on this album all mention the moon in their title, which explains the Beethoven inspired album title. The arrangements this time around are from Nelson Riddle, providing an ideal setting for these mostly romantic little numbers. But you also want to pay attention to the order in which Riddle has laid out these songs: make up your own mind as to the pattern they suggest, but I think you will definitely find something there. One thing you have to admire with Sinatra's albums is their thematic unit and even if the songs are not among Sinatra's best this time around they are still quite enjoyable.
However, be aware that "Moonlight Sinatra" (arguably the cutest Sinatra album title of all time) is also a tribute album of sorts, since four of these songs were recorded earlier by Bing Crosby: "Moonlight Becomes You," "I Wished on the Moon," "The Moon Got In My Eyes," and "The Moon Was Yellow." This was also the year that Sinatra and Crosby worked and sang together in the film "Robin and the Seven Hoods," so I find this to be a bit more than coincidental. However, the song that I find most interesting has to be Glenn Miller's "Moonlight Serenade," which I was surprised to learn had lyrics. But if Frank Sinatra wants to sing "Moonlight Serenade"...

I think this album from Frank Sinatra is one of the most romantic of his Reprise era .Whereas alot of his other ¨mood¨albums were sad and sometimes a bit morose the love songs in this album are warm and uplifting.The arrangements of Nelson Riddle add to making this a lovely album and a must for Frank Sinatra fans.

Being a massive Sinatra fan, a owner of ever studio album he ever produced, a singer, a cancerian (we are very effected by the moon ok!) and a man with a keen interest in cosmology this album is the quintessential embodiment of perfection to me.

An album best enjoyed after dark, this is without question the most achingly romantic album Sinatra ever produced. In his career we saw albums of reflection, heartache, swing, dance and travel yet we see very few of pure romance and they do not come any better than this.

The song selection is inspired. So easily it could have been an obvious replica of previous moon based songs e.g. "Fly Me To The Moon" or "Moonlight on the Ganges" as Sinatra often did under reprise, however we see a fantastic selection of songs not recorded under capitol or even recorded by Sinatra before this album. Sinatra at aged 50 is a debated topic. Some would say it was the beginning of the decline in his vocal flexibility, however for me as his flexibility declined his voice gained incredible warmth and no where is this warmth more applicable than on this album. This was Sinatra at his best blend of flexibility and warmth (listen to "September of My Years" if you are in any doubt).

The theme of this album is the best of any concept album ever. The title is clever, a play on Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" and an album purely about the moon is a recipe for romance. Very few artists could have pulled this off with the same mysterious romance that is produced by Sinatra, I doubt even Crosby could have made it work (and I am a massive Bing fan).

Possibility not Sinatra's best sung album. Not his most critically or commercially successful album.

By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 Dec. 2010
Format: Audio CD
This rather short CD of only 10 tracks is still worth the money, featuring as it does Frank Sinatra backed by the Nelson Riddle orchestra. It was released in 1966 on the Reprise label. It comprises love songs about the moon, including `Moon love' based on a melody from the Andante 2nd movement of Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony. It also includes the ever-popular `Moonlight becomes you' and `Oh, you crazy moon' from van Heusen & Burke, Berlin's `Reaching for the moon', Glenn Miller's `Moonlight serenade' and Fred Ahlert's `The moon was yellow'. But there are some less often heard tunes too: `Moon song', `The moon got in my eyes' and `Moonlight mood' that I hadn't heard before I bought the LP. The disc might have been Sinatra's response to the Swingin' On The Moon LP from Mel Tormé of 1960, based on the same idea of love songs about the moon, but where Tormé's is swinging, as the title indicates, Sinatra's is much more relaxed and sensuous.
