This Is Sinatra!

LP (Item 3425) Capitol, Early 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

This Is Sinatra indeed – a wonderful collection of singles, and a near-lost album to the shifting sands of time! The record wasn't one of Frank's "album concepts" for Capitol, and has since been dismantled in the catalog – but for many in the 50s, this was one of THE Sinatra albums – overflowing with beautiful early singles that marked his initial comeback years for Capitol. Nelson Riddle and Billy May conduct – and titles include "Love & Marriage", "Young at Heart", "Learnin the Blues", "Love is the Tender Trap", "The Gal That Got Away", "South Of The Border", and "Rain".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Later abridged mono blue label pressing in a barcode cover.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Frank Sinatra

Come Dance With Me
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Billy May's got Frank nicely swinging on this one – working on a set of older numbers, retuned for the Sinatra sound of 50s Capitol! The band is tight, the sound is right, and Frank steps out nicely on songs that he sung years before in other settings – but quite possibly never so well ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

That's Life
Reprise, 1966. Very Good+
Sweet arrangements from Ernie Freeman – who gives Frank Sinatra that great little bounce that made the title hit, and so many other 60s tunes, so great! Titles include "That's Life", "Sand & Sea", "What Now My Love", "Tell Her", "Give Her ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson

Hurt So Bad
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great set that continues the groovy late 60s sound of Nancy Wilson at Capitol Records – that unique blend of jazz and soul that seemed to inspire a whole host of imitations at the time! Nancy's still the best of the bunch at this sort of groove, though – and the arrangements here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeri Southern

At The Crescendo
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
Great proof that Jeri Southern's a hell of a jazz singer in just the right setting – and this album's just the right setting! The set features Jeri live at the Crescendo – working with small group backing at the famous LA nite spot – including piano from Dick Hazard, who also ... LP, Vinyl record album
