A landmark set – featuring a wealth of material that's never been released before! If you're a fan of Sinatra – and we certainly are – you'll know that at this point, every single studio recording that Frank ever made has been released. However, there's an equally strong batch of work from Frank's film career that has never been properly documented – largely because of contractual relations between the studios and record labels, and because many of the films never yielded enough material to make a full soundtrack album. Because of these reasons, and more, much of Frank's excellent vocal performances in 50s and 60s films have not been released – including wonderful work from films like Guys & Dolls, A Hole In The Head, Come Blow Your Horn, The Joker Is Wild, Paris When It Sizzles, Young At Heart, Meet Danny Wilson, and a number of other great films. Tracks from these films are combined with others from soundtracks that did come out – like Can Can, High Society, and others – but which haven't had a very good history in the CD era. In all, the set contains 160 tracks from the years 1940 to 1964 – and is completely essential if you're a fan of Sinatra's work. And even for more familiar soundtracks, there's rare material like different versions, promotional spots, interviews, and more – making for a completely wonderful document of Frank's rich career in films! Plus, the 6CD box also comes with a beautiful slipcover, and a hardcover book with images of the films, notes on the music, and more. A bargain at this price – and one that will fill in a heck of a lot of holes in your Sinatra collection! Heck, we'd be willing to buy this one just for the song "Adelaide", which is one of our favorites from Guys & Dolls, but was never issued until now!
(Box has some light wear, but is nice enough overall.)
