By 1964, with the Beatles' fame exploding all around them, the heyday of Frank Sinatra's fabled Rat Pack was just about over. But if they were daunted by middle age, the rapid encroachment of rock & roll, or simply the volatile presence of each other, there's no trace of it in their rollicking musical spoof of Robin Hood, the Warner Bros. gangster flicks of the 30's and 40's, and--crucially--themselves. Perhaps inspired by their irreverent, recently recorded Broadway romps for Sinatra's Reprise label (Guys and Dolls, Finian's Rainbow, Kiss Me, Kate, and South Pacific), the Pack (including, as it did on Guys and Dolls, guest Rat Bing Crosby) took the freewheeling nature of those records to the big screen and to this original score for the motion picture. The seven musical "hoods" here are Sinatra, Crosby, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., songwriters Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen, and composer/conductor Nelson Riddle. All showcase their resumés well, from Sinatra's rendition of the familiar "My Kind of Town" (also included as a bonus track is a previously unreleased alternate version) to Davis's show-stopping ode to cold-blooded murder, "Bang! Bang!" And lest anyone take the proceedings too seriously, they hand off "All for One and One for All" to that somewhat less than noted crooner Peter Falk and let Crosby preach the Gospel of "Don't Be a Do-Badder" and "Mr. Booze" as--wait for it--a temperance lecturer! With the original album long out of print and here making its debut on CD, this edition restores the Rat Pack's lively film swan song to its full sonic glory. --Jerry McCulley

this is the only cd available of this movie soundtrack of what has become sort of a cult-following flick (up there with ocean's eleven among sinatra's best films), so if you want it, you will have to shell out twice the going rate, to get the overpriced, hokey gold cd, but it is worth it to get this music (and the gold cd sure is shiny...)
the sound quality on this digitally remastered cd is really as good as advertised, but perhaps, to rationalize for overpaying for this cd, i imagined hearing nuances and tones that were no different than on a normal cd. nelson riddle's orchestrations are the usual great, swinging 60's sound, and everyone's voices are in top form.
the cd liner notes interestingly point out that sinatra was distracted twice during the final wrap up of the movie, in fall of 1963, once when president kennedy was assassinated and then when sinatra's son was kidnapped, and shooting was held up for several days in each instance, but while frank may have worn a graver expression during the last bit of filming, his singing voice was fine to the last.
there are four really good songs in this movie -- "my kind of town", "don't be a do badder", "style" and "mister booze."
"style" has the most pizzazz, what with its vaudeville straw hat and cane schtick, key changes and build up to a finale, and has frank, dean, sammy and bing each taking a turn out front and is as much a visual treat on dvd as an audio one here.
"mr. booze" is a "sit down you're rockin' the boat" kind of "testifyin'" song, and "do badder" is a "high hopes" kind of semi-cutsey kids' song, complete with a little hispanic boy shooting a rubber tipped arrow at bing, singing to all the mini-archers in an orphanage.

I've been looking for this Soundtrack to be re-released for years and now it's back and sounding better that ever. The Mastering is clean and has a very warm sound. This Disc is a must for every Sinatra fan.

I saw this movie when I was a kid. It is a sentimental favorite of mine along with Come Blow Your Horn. I had the album since 1964. I don't have it anymore. I have waited years for this to come on Cd. It is a wonderful cd. I could do without the outakes. Sometimes it is irritating when you're listening to the entire song. The quality is great on this Cd. Hope everyone enjoys.

it says it's the original soundtrack but it's not. if you're a big fan of this movie you notice the cuts on this album are rerecorded in a studio. they're not the song cuts that are from the soundtrack. had i known this i might not have bought this album. the sampler from amazon doesn't give enough from the songs so that you realize this.

Overall, the songs are much better in the movie. The only song the album improved on was "My Kind of Town." If Frank & crew had decided to put the movie version of all the songs on vinyl, this would have been a much bigger and better album. This is one of the rare times that Frank made an error in musical judgment and pulled a rock. Get the movie instead.

On the audio commentary on the DVD of this motion picture, Frank Sinatra Jr. (Does anyone know why he doesn't call Sinatra Sr. "Dad" instead of "Sinatra?") said that his dad wanted to re-record the entire score in stereophonic sound. So, hence, two different versions of every musical number. I already have this version of "My Kind of Town" on the "Reprise Collection" cd. So why should I even buy the cd when they're not the songs I've seen on the movie? The film (monophonic) version of "My Kind of Town" is completely different than the studio version, such as beginning and ending in a higher key, Mr. Sinatra sounds more relaxed and in better voice than in the studio version, and lastly the orchestra on the film version sounds more "live" and spontaneous. I can't find the other version of the soundtrack anywhere. Perhaps Warner Reprise Records will release a special edition with both versions in a few years. Personally, I would, and will, wait for that. One last thing-- did anyone notice that on the cd as well as the film versions of almost all of the songs Dean Martin recorded solo or with Sinatra and Crosby that he sounds really off-key and gravelly (especially towarads the end of the film "Style"). That's not the right spelling, but you know what I mean. It shows how much of a perfectionist Sinatra was, Crosby to a lesser extent. I remember reading somewhere that Mr. Sinatra would spend countless hours just trying to get the right sound in the recording studio, where as Mr. Martin just seemed to throw something together, and then go golfing. But then, that's just probably a personality thing.

THIS MOVIE IS GREAT. ALL SINGERS ARE GREAT. OF COURSE CROSBY BLOWS THEM ALL AWAY WITH MR. BOOZE! DEAN BING AND SINATRA DO A GREAT JOB ON THEIR TRIPLE SONG. BY THE WAY THE AD ON AMAZON IS WRONG. BING SOLD 1 BILLION RECORD. PRESLEY 950,000 AND SINATRA SOLD 250 MILLION.
