Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Capitol Records, the label for which Sinatra recorded many of his greatest albums in the 1950's, commemorates the singer's 75th birthday with this 3-disc set. Of the 75 chronologically-arranged tracks, about half appear on CD for the first time. The set includes a 36-page booklet with full color photos. Reprise, the label which Sinatra founded in 1960 and still records for, has also released a 4-disc box set anthology.
Muze PNote Personnel: Frank Sinatra (vocals).
Muze PNote Liner Note Authors: Nancy Sinatra; Pete Kline; Will Friedwald.
Muze PNote Recording information: Capitol Records Studios, Hollwood (1953-1961); United Recording Studios, Hollwood (1953-1961).
Muze PNote In millennia to come, if evidence is required to substantiate the claim that Frank Sinatra was the finest singer of the 20th century, the three-disc CAPITOL YEARS set should settle the case. For the countless listeners to whom Sinatra spoke so eloquently, he was confidante, drinking buddy, philosopher, confessor, therapist, and more, as both his voice and his interpretive artistry reached their full maturation during his mid-1950s-to-early-'60s tenure at Capitol Records.
Muze PNote It's almost difficult to believe that the man voicing the assured elan of "I've Got the World on a String" is the same harried soul who takes himself to task in the haunting welcome-to-my-nightmare ballad "I'm a Fool to Want You." Nevertheless, both the sensual intimations of "Embraceable You" and the sassy invitation of "Come Dance with Me" are equally powerful, not least on account of the growing simpatico of the arrangements, courtesy of giants such as Billy May and Nelson Riddle. As overwhelming as the artistic heft of THE CAPITOL YEARS box may be, the fact that many of these tracks are previously unreleased alternate takes makes Sinatra's gift seem just that much more sui generis.

Artist Overview

An icon of American music, Frank Sinatra defined sophisticated pop singing of the post-war era and spent more than 50 years in the limelight. After formative stints with Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, and others, Sinatra shot to worldwide fame through hit records and Hollywood movies. His hip, laid-back delivery defined cool, yet he also had a down-to-earth manner that connected easily with audiences. Ups and downs would follow him throughout his career--the details of his private life were not always fit for public consumption--but right up till the end, every comeback strengthened the intense loyalty of his fans.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (1/24/91)
- 5 Stars - Classic - "...a definitive summary not only of Sinatra's most revealing vocal performances but also a smart compendium of some of the best songwriting of the prerock era..."

Musician (3/91)
- "...gem after gem...Sinatra's no-sweat soaring celebrated the familiar melodies; for the ballads there was the firm caress of the singer's baritone, a gorgeous instrument that managed to convey a tender strength and restraint--you could trust this guy, wallow a while in this worldly self-pity, but never sink..."

Time Magazine (12/31/90)
- Rated as one of the 10 best releases of 1990.

New York Times (Publisher)
- "...the record of how one intelligent, willful, gifted sensualist with infinite resources for distraction felt the passage of time..."
