Now, I know this is just a Sinatra: Best of the Best album, not Sinatra: Best of the Best of the Best of The Best as title suggests, but thanks to the lovely authorities, some people keep choosing the best songs of Frank Sinatra for us over and over again. So in maybe 10 or 20 years, we may buy the Sinatra: Best of the Best of the Best of The Best album as well. These authorities are so good at choosing songs that they include “Love and Marriage” in this Sinatra: Best of the Best set. Okay, you may very well love that song; but including it in the best of best album? Don’t think that makes sense. Mayhaps in a “Most Popular” album.

Again, thanks to the authorities, we can pay again for the same songs. And why? Because they are in a different CD! And the album name is different! How wonderful.

How about editing and improving some unreleased concerts, making some effort for Sinatra? How about releasing some HD concerts, instead of putting the concerts together that were already released and naming it “Concert Collection” ? How about buying those 200+ recorded shows of Frank Sinatra and releasing them instead of letting them gather dust in a cellar in a club? But of course Sinatra: Best of the Best is a nice of making quick money.

My friends, there are lots of things to say, but who is listening? Making money using the name Frank Sinatra is easy. The important thing is, doing such work that Sinatra legacy deserves. Maybe one day…

    well stated.
    the idea that we keep getting the same old stuff is an insult to Sinatra fans.

    why did sinatra make a comeback in 1973 after reting in style in 1971. his voice went into a irreversible decline from the mid 70s and sadly he continued to make records of a much inferior quality. i tell young people today to listen and study sinatra of the 40s, 50s and 60s. not listen to duets etc and think that was the real sinatra. sinatra on columbia and capitol is what i tell them to listen to.

      I think once your life becomes music, it is not possible to quit it. Even today’s crappy singers are so willing to continue singing. Sinatra knew how it was to be the real best, and that feeling fill made him go on. I definitely agree with you, the real Sinatra is 40s, 50s and 60s. And duets? Are they even duets? They sang seperately and computers combined them. But I think some of the concerts from 80s, even 90s are really good and worth listening to. Concert For Americas, 85 Japan and some bootleg concerts are really outstanding. But I would stay away from albums.
