·"Frank Sinatra Sings His Greatests Hits on Columbia Records" - Frank Sinatra

The 1940s were Sinatra's halcyon days. For the first time ever, thousands of screaming teenage girls converged on the Paramount Theater in Manhattan, their public display of affection for their new-found hero expressed in legendary proportions. Dramatic episodes of thunderous screaming and "swooning" on the part of Sinatra devotees heralded his arrival, and prompted newspaper columnists to nickname him "Swoonatra!" Musically, the Columbia years represent an essential period in the vocalist's amazingly versatile career. It was during his nine year association with the label, from 1943 to 1952, that Sinatra perfected the smooth, romantic styling that made him the most influential vocalist of the twentieth century, and established him as the greatest singing artist of all time. It was at Columbia that Sinatra became 'The Voice Thrilling Millions,' popularizing classics such as "Nancy (With The Laughing Face)" and "Saturday Night (Is The Loneliest Night In The Week)" (1944), "Put Your Dreams Away" (1945), All Of Me" (1946) and I've Got A Crush On You" (1947). In 1951, while in the midst of intense personal and professional woes, he entered the Columbia studios in New York, and recorded "I'm A Fool To Want You," the rendition of which is generally considered to be the single most intense, emotional performance of his entire performing career. Through his music, he made statements on social tolerance, with his poignant reading of The House I Live In," (for which he won a special Academy Award in 1946) becoming a Sinatra standard, and the anthem for a generation of loyal fans, and in 1946 recorded a swingin' jazz version of "Sweet Lorraine" with The Metronome All-Stars (featuring Nat 'King' Cole on piano). With Frank Sinatra's Columbia epoch standing firmly as the cornerstone of his career, (the foundation, in fact, of the vastly different musical styles he would later explore with the likes of Nelson Riddle, Billy May and Gordon Jenkins, among others), it has been Legacy's goal to treat each and every issue with the utmost respect. In every way, Sinatra's Columbia recordings have finally arrived in a manner befitting their importance in the realm of musical history, and this special disc features 18 spectacular examples of Sinatra's incomparable Columbia artistry. Includes special alternate takes of the Sinatra classics, "Laura" and "Body And Soul."
