This two-CD Reprise collection includes among its 46 selections many of the very best recordings Frank Sinatra ever made. Count this reviewer among those who believe FS reserved his very best performances for his own record label (please see my review for "The Very Best of Frank Sinatra"). The simple fact is, Sinatra didn't reach the peak of his vocal powers until 1963---three years after the first Reprise recordings included here.
It's now fully 40 years since two of the selections here---"Bewitched" and "America the Beautiful"---were recorded for what the singer himself considered his crowning achievement (in his best 'bel canto' style) --- "The Concert Sinatra" album. Almost 30 years elapsed before "America the Beautiful" finally was released on the 4-CD Reprise box set. For "The Concert Sinatra" arranger/conductor Nelson Riddle assembled, on the singer's orders, his largest-ever symphony orchestra, recorded on a huge sound stage at the MGM film studios. Riddle claimed near the end of his life that he never saw the singer better prepared or more focussed for a recording session.
Among other highlights of this splendid 2-CD collection are:
- The opening track from the June 1962 "Great Songs from Great Britain" album---the Ray Noble classic "The Very Thought of You" arrranged/conducted by Robert Farnon.
- Three from the 1961 Don Costa arranged "Sinatra and Strings" album, which many consider the singer's best 'ballads' from the Reprise years: "Come Rain or Come Shine," "Night and Day" and "All or Nothing at All.

We've all seen them.
They're often the sign of their respective artists lack of ideas. The feared "greatest Hits." albums that clog the bargain Bins and 'reduced' shelfs of the superstores.
but Not this album.
Frank Sinatra, in his long musical career has had dozens of Greatest Hits albums, but "My Way- The Best Of Frank Sinatra." is simply a brilliant compilation. It features his most well known hits- Fly me to the moon, Something stupid. My Way, New york New York, That's Life, The list is endless. It is definitley a great buy for the occasional Frank Sinatra Listener, or as a CD for the open musical listener. It may disappoint for Seasoned Frank Sinatra collectors in that it omits some of the less "Glamarous" songs in favour of his hits, But as is its title, it is a greatest hits, If you do not own this, or perhaps are looking for a good compilation of swing/jazz music that almost everyone had heard the author of, then 'My Way- The Best Of Frank Sinatra' is a must buy.

Ultimately any compilation CD of Frank Sinatra is going to contain some not so good recordings, however, for the price and for some of the little gems included, it is certainly a CD worth buying.
It contains the best arrangement of 'I get a kick out of you', by Neal Hefti, that I have heard, and although there aren't any recordings from the 50's, there are 13 songs arranged by Nelson Riddle. For those people who have not heard Frank sing the Nelson Riddle arrangements, then this is a very good start.
Of the new stuff, I was surprised at the version of 'Yesterday'. The arrangment by Don Costa is beautiful. Very different from the original.
If you have many Sinatra recordings, like me, you will find one or two little gems. If Frank is new to you then this is a good starting block.

If, like me, you love the music of Sinatra, but don't know where to begin, then this is the CD for you. It is a compilation of some of the finest moments of his musical career. It's great to listen to when you have friends to visit or if you're holding a dinner party. There is a romanticism here, that recalls the heady post-war decades of the 50's, 60's and 70's. Frank's music is evocative of the era. Without doubt one of the greatest performers/artists of our time. If you only buy one Sinatra CD, make it this one.

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,
