All Alone is a concept album. The songs are about a man whose girl left him, or unaware of him. Though the album is underrated in the music world, Frank Sinatra fans are aware of the fact that this album is a real masterpiece.
In the album All Alone, all of the songs are very beautiful and worth listening. There is not a single bad song. But of course, All Alone, Charmaine, The Song Is Ended, What’ll I Do? and Indiscreet are really special. They are not only the best songs of the album, but also the notable songs in Frank Sinatra’s career. But he didn’t prefer the songs of this album in his concerts.
In the video below, you can listen to the 2nd take of “Come Waltz With me” by Frank Sinatra in studio.
Last but not least, Are You Lonesome Tonight is a nice song of the All Alone album, always a classic.
