The Concert Sinatra [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Concert Sinatra is one of Frank Sinatra's best records of the early '60s, an album that successfully rearranges a selection of show tunes, primarily those composed by Richard Rodgers, for the concert stage. Nelson Riddle arranged and conducted one of the largest orchestras that had ever supported Frank Sinatra, and his work is light and delicate.

Pat Brown and only released as a single at the time.]
