Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely
Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely by CD at WA Tunes. MPN: 1807854. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. #1 on the charts for five weeks in 1958! Look past the tacky, sad-clown velvet painting on the cover (a Grammy-winner for album design in 1959!), there's nothing cheap or sentimental about this record--the bleakest and blackest album of popular songs ever recorded, so quietly powerful it can leave you slumped in your chair with the ice cubes still rattling in your glass. Every single ''suicide song'' (as Sinatra liked to call 'em) on Only the Lonely is a stunner that will take your breath away.
Product Description & Reviews
#1 on the charts for five weeks in 1958! Look past the tacky, sad-clown velvet painting on the cover (a Grammy-winner for album design in 1959!), there's nothing cheap or sentimental about this record--the bleakest and blackest album of popular songs ever recorded, so quietly powerful it can leave you slumped in your chair with the ice cubes still rattling in your glass. Every single "suicide song" (as Sinatra liked to call 'em) on Only the Lonely is a stunner that will take your breath away. Nelson Riddle's arrangements are like shadows, almost colorless and motionless, so that all you hear is the ache in the singer's voice. "Angel Eyes" and "One for My Baby" each deserve an album to themselves-- so exquisitely moving that at the end of three minutes you feel like you've just heard a lifetime of loneliness. My only regret--and it's a big one--is that this flawless masterpiece doesn't include Billy Strayhorn's "Lush Life," which truly belongs here; Sinatra put it into an already overcrowded recording schedule and, when fatigue and the difficulty of the song defeated him after a couple takes, he gave up and never attempted it again. We got the chillingly lovely "Willow Weep For Me" instead, so I'm really not complaining--but that just adds to the pang of loss that this album expresses so vividly. Drink up! --Jim Emerson

His first two 10'' LPs, the landmark recordings that reasserted him as a pop star! This CD pairs the first two 10-inch records Sinatra recorded for Capitol. In 1955, full-length albums by popular singing stars were still few and far between. These two platters marked the beginning of Sinatra's phenomenally successful relationship with conductor-arranger Nelson Riddle, and presaged the ''concept albums'' that would become such an important part of Sinatra's Capitol period.

Newly Remastered! At the height of the singer/songwriter period, Rankin quietly became one of the key voices of the genre. Silver Morning ranks as one of the best and most representative albums of that time. Once again, Rankin does a fine job covering Gordon Lightfoot (Pussywillows, Cat Tails) but he really shines on his reworkings of the Beatles' songbook. His vocal and guitar arrangements on Lennon and McCartney's Blackbird; and particularly on Penny Lane show him to be one of the best
