Classic Sinatra II
Who wants the CD next?
Since I had this free CD to giveaway, I used a random number generator to pick the winner. But since commenter #6 never responded to my email, I drew again, this time picking #1. Albert did read his email and graciously accepted the gift. However, now that he’s ripped the CD to his iTunes collection, he wants to pass it on to another reader!
So the first person to email me with their name and address, will be the next to receive this CD! (I should post these entries when I’m awake – you should have seen the inbox when I woke up.. OK elainetyger is next – will she pass it along, or keep it?)
Maybe we can eventually pass it on to the entire city like a badly worn library book?
I’m sure there are tons of Frank Sinatra fans in Hoboken, right?
Well, below is an announcement about the latest Frank Sinatra recording called Classic Sinatra II – which was released by Capitol/EMI Records & Frank Sinatra Enterprises yesterday!
OH – and if you want to win a free copy of this CD, just leave the phrase “Enter me in the Sinatra Drawing” in the comments section, and I’ll run a random selection to give one away as soon as I get my copy! (I’ll notify the winner by email first – and if they confirm receipt of the email withing 3 days, I’ll report the winner in the comments section)
Latest Frank Sinatra Collection Released!
Released in 2000, Capitol/EMI’s Classic Sinatra has sold over two million copies in the U.S. alone and has been certified double platinum by the RIAA. To mark this achievement, on June 2, Capitol/EMI, in conjunction with Frank Sinatra Enterprises (FSE), will release a brand-new companion collection, Classic Sinatra II. Featuring 21 additional signature tracks, including 15 from the legendary concept albums Sinatra recorded for Capitol between 1954 and 1961, various singles, and a previously unreleased recording, Classic Sinatra II will be available on CD, at all major digital service providers, and www.sinatra.com.
Classic Sinatra II showcases a selection of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ most loved recordings from his Capitol concept albums, including “Moonlight In Vermont,” “Pennies From Heaven,” “Something’s Gotta Give,” and “All Of Me.” In addition, the set features four 1950s singles: “Love And Marriage,” “(Love Is) The Tender Trap,” “Learnin’ The Blues,” and “High Hopes.” Plus a 1956 recording of “Memories Of You” and a previously unreleased recording, “This Can’t Be Love.”
During his lifetime, Sinatra won 10 Grammy Awards. When awarded the Grammy Legend Award in 1994, he was introduced by U2 singer Bono, who said, “His songs are his home and he lets you in, but you know that to sing like that you’ve got to have lost a couple of fights. To know tenderness and romance you’ve got to have had your heart broken.”
Born Francis Albert Sinatra on December 12, 1915, Frank Sinatra was a titan of 20th Century entertainment, with record-breaking successes in both music and film. With a legendary career spanning more than six decades, Sinatra was truly “The Entertainer of the 20th Century.” Also known as “Ol’ Blue Eyes,” “The Chairman of the Board” and “The Voice,” Sinatra has sold more than more than 150 million albums around the world, and racked up 31 gold and nine platinum albums (including three that went multi-platinum), one gold single, and two gold and platinum videos in the United States alone. He is the only artist to chart in Billboard’s Top Ten for seven consecutive decades.
