Overview

A good single-disc compilation of his Capitol years, covering 1953 to the beginning of the 1960s. His Capitol output was so extensive that it's impossible for a 20-song anthology to give a comprehensive overview even of the highlights. Also, as this focuses on the albums he made with Capitol, some of his biggest hits of the time are omitted, such as "Learnin' the Blues," "Hey! Jealous Lover," and "High Hopes." Still, a lot of the performances much of the public identifies with the singer are here, including "I Get a Kick out of You," "The Lady Is a Tramp," "Witchcraft," "All the Way," "Come Fly With Me," "One for My Baby," "Young at Heart," and "I've Got You Under My Skin."

This is Sinatra in his peak 50s period: true classics which illustrate Frank's superlative timing and expression. Many conducted by Nelson Riddle,whose arrangements formed an integral part of the Sinatra sound during this period. Popular music as an art form.

Excellent CD. This is the first Sinatra CD I bought, and it is absolutely the one that got me hooked! I'm 17 and can say that Frank is by far one of my all-time favorites. Get this CD for anyone and everyone you know...it'll get them hooked on Frank, too!

In hopes that the music of today will somehow come to a musical revolution, this album sparks what other albums are made of. It tender and slick and i would an am giong to put this in my cd player in my astrovan so the kids can hear what the music industry was about. Thank you Frank ! terry copley bassist The Catz in the Hatz

Every song is great. Sinatra's voice is at its best during these years. I didn't realize Sinatra had so many wonderful songs until I bought this CD.

I bought this and "Sinatra 80th: All the Best." Now I feel I got most of Sinatra's best songs. I've been a fan since the early 90's, and the Capitol years are my favorite. Great sound quality. It's amazing how many quality songs he had in just those seven years.
