5.0 out of 5 stars Strong compilation of Frank's sixties music, 8 Dec. 2002
This review is from: My Way: The Best Of Frank Sinatra (2CD) (Audio CD)
Frank's career began in a very different era, when swing bands were fashionable. He maintained this style long after it ceased to be fashionable, yet continued to sell records in huge quantities. Indeed, he recorded some of the best music of his career during the sixties and seventies.
My way actually began as a French song - it was titled Comme d'habitude and recorded by Claude Francois in 1967. Paul Anka later translated it into English and the rest is history.
This collection contains many other Sinatra classics - New York New York, Strangers in the night, Somethin' stupid, Come fly with me and so much more. Most of his songs were culled from the Great American Songbook, but he showed that he could do contemporary songs well - among those to be found here are Mrs Robinson (Simon and Garfunkel), Yesterday, Something (both Beatles) and You are the sunshine of my life (Stevie Wonder).
This set works well as an introduction to Frank's music, but for those who only want one collection, this is the best of many compilations available. A single-CD version is also available for those who want it - it has a different color cover and merely contains the first of the two CD's here - but you can't buy the second CD separately,
