Biography

Only Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson can rival Frank Sinatra for biggest-selling solo artist of all time. His jazz-influenced singing remained internationally renowned whatever whims, fashions or innovations were introduced by new generations. In a solo career that included over 70 albums and hundreds of singles, from the late-30s until the mid-90s, Sinatra remained universally loved even as ... Read more in Amazon's Frank Sinatra Store

Product Description

Amazon.com

Talk about your gifts of Christmas past, The Christmas Collection is a must-have for any Sinatra-phile, right down to its family photos and one priceless shot of Sinatra swinging a golf club next to the tree wearing a Santa suit! Complete with four previously unreleased tracks (some from live TV specials) -- including two with Bing Crosby ("The Christmas Song" and "White Christmas"), the 18-song collection surveys Sinatra's holiday output and its effects are often chilling. Listening to him glide soulfully through Jimmy Webb's melancholy but romantic "What Ever Happened to Christmas?" or hearing him do his immaculate phrasing on "Silent Night" when he was visibly frail and aging in 1991 are close encounters of a Sinatra kind that are rarely captured on one album. There's also a delightful "The Twelve Days of Christmas" sung with his kids Nancy and Frank, Jr., from their 1969 record The Sinatra Family Wish You A Merry Christmas and insightful and intimate liner notes by James Ritz, not to mention those magical orchestral arrangements. Here's a five-star package to remind us that it's still Frank's world--we just rent a stable in it. Highly recommended. --Martin Keller

Reprise and the Sinatra Family bring together a rare find "The Christmas Collection", featuring the head of the clan Mr. Frank Sinatra in fine voice for this special time of the year ~ classic arrangements from Harry Betts, Don Costa, Jack Holloran, Nelson Riddle and Dick Reynolds...with Fred Waring & His Pennsylvanians, Jimmy Joyce Singers & Orchestra and Nelson Riddle & His Orchestra...joining in the seasonal splendor are his children Tina, Nancy and Frank Jr., making this Christmas all the more special.

Performances cover several decades of Frank's career, including a few with Bing Crosby like "WE WISH YOU THE MERRIEST" and "GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN" [1964], featuring Fred Waring & His Pennsylvanians from "The Twelve Songs Of Christmas" ~ "THE CHRISTMAS SONG" and "WHITE CHRISTMAS" [1957], previously unissued from "Happy Holidays With Bing & Frank" an ABC segment from The Frank Sinatra Show with Nelson Riddle & His Orchestra, a nostalgic outing for the two crooners and Riddle...you can tell they are having a blast.

All of the Sinatra's join in with "I WOULDN'T TRADE CHRISTMAS", "THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS" and "THE BELLS OF CHRISTMAS (Greensleeves)" [1968], featuring Tina, Nancy, Frank Jr. and Dad(Frank), with Nelson Riddle arrangements from the album "The Sinatra Family Wish You A Merry Christmas", sounds like a tree trimming gathering as the Jimmy Joyce Singers & Orchestra put the final touches on the decorations...Frank seems the happiest with his children around him.

The closing bonus track of "SILENT NIGHT", the vocal recorded on August 27, 1991...orchestral was arranged and added by Johnny Mandel featuring Bill T.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Nearly as Good as "Christmas Songs by Sinatra" December 19, 2006
By J. Katz
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this CD on the basis of the good reviews here. I like it, but overall, I don't think it touches the quality Frank gives us on "Christmas Songs by Sinatra."

This version relies on lots and lots of choral support -- which isn't my preferred way to hear Sinatra.

"Christmas Songs by Sinatra" contains more straight Sinatra. Also, it has more traditional songs, whereas this CD has lots of songs that I don't think Frank sings as well as the old standards.

Don't get me wrong, I think this CD is fine. But I'd recommend "A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra" and "Christmas Songs by Sinatra" IF you prefer Sinatra singing classic Christmas songs largely on his own.

By Steve

If you're looking for a Frank Sinatra holiday music collection that contains his holiday recordings post 1960, then this album is the only way to go. This set supercedes the old 1994 Reprise CD "The Sinatra Christmas Album". "The Christmas Collection" has all thirteen tracks that the "The Sinatra Christmas Album" contained (albeit fully remastered), plus an additional five tracks (four of which are previously unreleased):

- "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm" (recorded on December 21, 1960 and taken from the 1961 Reprise album "Ring-A-Ding Ding!")
- "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" (a recording taken from the Sinatra TV special "Happy Holidays with Bing & Frank" that aired on December 20, 1957)
- "The Christmas Song" (a duet with Bing Crosby that aired on the same 12/20/1957 TV special as the above track)
- "White Christmas" (another duet with Bing Crosby that aired on the same 12/20/1957 TV special as the two above tracks)
- "Silent Night" (vocals recorded by Frank on August, 27 1991; orchestral track recorded on March 23, 2004)

"The Christmas Collection" is also the only current Sinatra holiday album that contains a majority of its tracks in stereo sound (as was the case with "The Sinatra Christmas Album"). But I personally still prefer Sinatra's 1957 holiday album that he recorded for Capitol Records ("A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra"), which was arranged by Gordon Jenkins (even though it's entirely in mono sound). Sinatra's other holiday collection that's still in print (the 1994 Sony compilation "Christmas Songs by Sinatra") contains the holiday tracks he recorded for Columbia Records during the 1940s, and it's also a good set, but still not quite on par with his 1957 holiday album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice assortment of Franks Christmas stuff October 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
A good cd compiling some tracks from the Sinatra Family album, some singles, stuff from Franks 1957 tv special with Bing, and tracks from the long out of print "12 songs of C-mas." This is a nice update of Reprise's "Sinatra Christmas Album." If you have that already, I would still recommend this update. If you don't, skip it and get this. Nice liner notes and some rare material including the long lost Silent Night take make this a five star unit. Silent Night isn't of the best vocal quality (Frank was aged and ailing), but he's trying, and it's nice to have for archival reasons. If you're just starting out a C-mas album collection, start with "Jolly Christmas" and this one. Then work your way to "Christmas Songs by Sinatra". Lastly, if still interested in even more holiday cheer from the Chairman, investigate "The Sinatra Family Wish you a Merry Christmas." THis one will be in heavy rotation for years to come (they're running out of stuff to release, so watch out for repackages soon). I hope you allow Frank's Christmas Collection to be the soundtrack to a great holiday season this year, and I thank you for visiting my review as I wish you a happy holiday season.

2.0 out of 5 stars a personal issue
Even my mother is too young to really like Frank Sinatra. The only problem is that I mis-chose the gift, I don't think there was anything wrong with the actual discs or songs.
