5.0 out of 5 stars Frank's first two Christmas albums plus bonus tracks December 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD
At first glance, there seems to be a lot of duplication of songs (there are 25 tracks here but just 17 different songs), caused by Frank re-recording songs at different times. Was it really necessary for him to re-record so many songs, when there were plenty of others to choose from? Well, at least some of the duplicate songs offer a contrast in styles. Leaving that admittedly significant quibble aside, this is a fine collection with a booklet that contains plenty of detail including original liner notes, session recording dates and musicians, together with a selection of pictures including album covers.

Taking the albums in the order in which they were recorded rather than the order that they are presented here, Columbia released 8 of the tracks as a ten-inch LP titled Christmas songs by Sinatra. A ninth track was released as a single, but wasn't a big hit. Frank subsequently recorded another Christmas song for Columbia. These 10 tracks made up a twelve-inch LP titled Christmas dreaming. All the Columbia tracks were conducted and arranged by Axel Stordahl. It is worth noting that Frank had a huge American hit in the mid-forties with his first recording of White Christmas, also with Axel Stordahl, but the Columbia recording here apparently dates from 1947.

Three tracks released on Capitol singles were conducted and arranged by Nelson Riddle, who performed the same service on many of Frank's albums at around that time, but the Capitol album featured here was conducted and arranged by Gordon Jenkins. Of the three Nelson Riddle tracks, the one titled I believe was new to me when I played this CD.
