This set is an amazing 4 CD collection of all of Sinatra's Capitol records singles. Now the large majority of Singles Sinatra released back in the 50's were not from his albums, which were mainly concept based, so here you'll find a wealth of material you won't find on any studio album ! Where as Sinatra would pick all his material for his albums, Capitol largely gave Sinatra the songs they wanted him to sing for the singles, this was partly so some experimentation could take place, if you've never heard Frank sing early rock n roll and doo wop then this is the album for you !! the other regular singles would be lighter and slightly poppier than his album material, which largely focused on swinging big band numbers and dark love songs. Singles, at the start of Sinatra's Capitol career were still for the most part his bread and butter, It was only with the release of "In the wee small hours" his album career really caught fire.
The set includes hits like "Witchcraft" "Love is the tender trap" "Young at heart" etc but some real rare gems like "Your love for me" "Talk to me" "To love and be loved" " Rain falling from the sky" and many many others are also included. I could list a dozen or so more that are exquisite but i'll leave that for you to find out! Most of Sinatra's Capitol singles were arranged by the genius that was Nelson Riddle and all the musicians,recording dates, arrangers involved and copious recording details can be found in the booklet which is found in the middle of the casing.
The only thing that lets this set down ( and it's only a personal minor quibble) is the large book style casing won't fit on a normal CD shelf, so can't sit next to my other Sinatra albums but this is still an amazing collection.
