Sinatra Duets Twentieth Anniversary Super Deluxe Box Set Animated Product Shot


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

LOVE IS A KICK (CL 1241) IS A 1958 mono-only COLUMBIA Records collection of previously released Frank Sinatra sides. Its back cover has a b&w photo of Frank leaning on a music stand, plus a playlist and contents for a half-dozen other Sinatra LPs (no liner notes, no band IDs).

A swingin' "You Do Something" has honking sax at the start and fake '50s echo throughout. Unique in the Sinatra canon and the second-to-last song Frank waxed for COLUMBIA, "Bim Bam Baby" is his take on Louis Jordan style R&B. He really kicks it on this #20 Billboard single. "My Blue Heaven" features a cool tenor sax solo. It's an excellent big band number. Simulated echo is blatant on "When You're Smiling." The second take committed to master of "Saturday Night" is brassier than that day's first version (the one chosen for single release) and not as charming. There is however a decent clarinet solo. Backing singers on a loud version of "Bye Bye Baby" are the Pastels.

For those of a certain age, Allan Sherman spoiled forever "The Continental" with his zany parody lyrics of "Dr. Prentiss, the painless dentist." Sinatra's version is an upbeat light swinger with Billy Butterfield's muted trumpet in the break. He does some elegant crooning on "Deep Night." This time the open horn is played by Harry James. "Should I?" is neo-swing band music with thum-thum-thum walking bass and some hot playing in the middle dominated by tenor sax. Strange Hal David flower/girl lyrics on "American Beauty," one of those Mitch Miller novelties that FS so hated, yet it peaked at #26 on the charts. "Five Minutes More" opens as a lullabye but keeping with this set's "kick" theme it takes to an upbeat tempo and some powerful reed work. It was a #1 hit in Aug. of '46.
