Dave, we had this thread before which you may find has some useful information...

https://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=114932&forumID=7&archive=0


Re-reading this tells me that Edw has the best information.


Thanks David. Not sure but I have really expanded my collection and have fully intended to go through my collection and offer some opinions and recommendations. As you know from personal experience, I have trouble finding the time to just sit down and do it. Year end at work along with some renovations going on here and at my son's new house have me spread pretty thin lately. I will definitely (mean it) sit down on Friday or Saturday to go over what I have and make some suggestions. I;m going to pull some out this work to listen to in preparation.

Hello, Edw. My two emails to you keep coming back to me. Your email address is unknown, or something. Maybe it's on my end, but I've typed it correctly. Did you forget to pay your internet provider again?

Hi MD, my email address has not changed. I successfully emailed you since and got your reply so hopefully it's all fixed. I promptly pay my provider bill each month for sure. It's required for my damn job and you can bet they don't subsidize or pay for it. Working from home has proven to be pretty expensive these past 11 years so I need a job to pay for the job. Let me know if you get the second email.

Good advice - it's in my profile but I deleted it in the thread. Thanks.

That is profoundly quotable.
Nicely done.

To edwzoomom: I received my 3-disc set of 'The Capitol Years' this afternoon. Still awaiting 'The Best of the Best' which has 'It Was a Very Good Year' on it. It will take some time to take all these songs in, but I'm content!

So happy to hear that MD. Even happier to hear that you're content. It's not a comment I hear often of late and I loved reading that. Happy listening.

I gathered my box sets of "The Columbia Years 1943-1952, The Complete Recordings", "Frank Sinatra, The Complete Reprise Studio Recordings" and the Capitol Records release of "Frank Sinatra Concepts". These are the original box sets but sound amazingly clear and crisp. It's going to take me quite a while to get through them but it's great listening as I prepare for a family gathering tomorrow.

MD, let me know what you think of your new Sinatra finds and please stay content. smile

THANK YOU, Thomas! I've heard the song countless times, and yet this video is new to me, I've never seen Sinatra as he recorded the song before. This video, and his determination to get it absolutely right, is a revelation. The performance just 'cuts to the heart'.
And such an expressive conductor, who was he?

That would be Gordon Jenkins

Yes Jenkins arranged and conducted all the tracks on the album the song is featured, September Of My Years. One of my favourite Sinatra albums.

Glad you liked the video Dave.

I've got all 12 now. I bought the set on eBay knowing that 2 discs were missing (I don't recall which ones at this point). My luck came about when I was able to buy the missing discs on eBay and Amazon respectively for a decent price before I purchased the set on eBay. The set was pristine and the 2 discs I bought were the same and thus I completed the 12.

What always confused me was why the seller didn't just purchase the 2 discs like I did and sell as a complete set - he could have asked a higher price I'm sure and maybe made a profit? Not sure but I was lucky, yes.

EDW: An update! The 3-disc set of The Capitol Years plays out, for me, as an extended vacation without having to leave my four walls. Luxuriating. However, I find that the single disc of 'The Best of The Best', is my favorite. It has songs on it that I enjoy (just a bit more), than the 3-dsic set. 'New York, New York', 'Fly me to the Moon', 'That's Life', 'Something Stupid', 'My Kind of Town', 'Mack the Knife', and of course 'It Was a Very Good Year'. All in all I can kick myself for not having gotten these decades ago but, there it is. I even learned from the disc that Frank Sinatra has his very own website. Ah, but of course!

Oh MD, that's wonderful to hear. I love the extended vacation metaphor. It made me smile just as much as your previous expression "I'm content". What I've always found interesting about Sinatra and is really a wonderful thing is how so many fans have specific periods of his career that they prefer over others. I've had some friends tell me they only loved his later years which include the songs you reference and another told me (a co-worker from some years back) that she loved his "swoon" tunes from her and his younger days. So glad to hear you are enjoying your new lot.

Nice story. Better than mine:

I was at an estate sale some years ago. I saw books for "lyrics of (great american songbook writer)" and cd's of jazz.

I also saw Sinatra cd's with reproduction covers, scattered in multiple rooms. I recalled that it was part of a set and began to gather them. But then I decided I didn't want that much Sinatra, so I left off. I could have had them for 2 clams each.

Now I'm kicking myself.
