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

As the '60s drew to a close, Sinatra became increasingly amenable to recording songs from the contemporary pop and rock canon. Whether he was responding to commercial pressures, or just trying to prove that he could still be hip in the Age of Aquarius, remains the subject of much debate; in any case, My Way is probably the best of his late-'60s pop efforts. For one thing, it includes the title track, a veritable Sinatra classic; for another, it contains impressive stabs at Ray Charles's "Hallelujah, I Love Her So," The Beatles' "Yesterday," and Jacques Brel's "If You Go Away" (the Chairman fares less well on Stevie Wonder's "For Once in My Life" and Simon and Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson"). Uneven, certainly, but well worth getting. --Dan Epstein

Customer Reviews

Not the first Sinatra album you should buy, but overall very listenable (just skip the last track).
Jon Warshawsky
The Classic Simon and Garfunkel tune Mrs.Robinson(from the movie the graduate) rounds out this Sinatra must have cd!!!!
john scotto
Elsewhere, "My Way" is a solid attempt at contemporary material of the day, and one of Frank's most underrated albums.

Yeah, there's some good and bad on this disk, but it's mandatory listening for the final track, which is so GLORIOUSLY awful it is criminal of Amazon not to put on a RealAudio sample. Oh, the band swings like you WOULDN'T BELIEVE, the brass is great, but it is SO wrong a song for Frank, as he does a lounge lizard parody of himself that would make Joe Piscopo and Phil Hartman blush, mangling the lyrics ("And you'll get yours, Mrs. Robinson/Foolin' wit' dat young stuff like you do/woo woo woo/boo hoo hoo"). The utter incongruity of the material and the great arrangement makes it a delight. And "Yesterday" wasn't a great choice, either ... but hell, it's got "My Way."

"My Way" is not Sinatra's greatest album, but it is an absolutely essential purchase because it includes the song that defined his life, music and philosophy. There is no other song in the Sinatra discography that more perfectly defines, summarizes, and musically states what Frank was all about than "My Way." Paul Anka wrote this song especially for Frank, and it immediately became the signature song for the rest of his career. This album was recorded in 1969, and it was an attempt for Frank to incorporate contemporary standards into his body of work. He covers songs by the Beatles, Rod McKuen, and Paul Simon, but "My Way" is the song that makes this album an integral part of the Sinatra canon. Don Costa arranged the songs as he did in many of Sinatra's album's for Reprise, and it is a much more solid effort than some critics give it credit for. Frank is still at the top of his game, and my other personal favorites on this CD are "Didn't We" and "For Once In My Life." "My Way" is an essential Sinatra must-have album and is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED1

The problem with people criticizing Sinatra's work is that they spend too much time thinking about what Sinatra SHOULD sound like. Sinatra successfully took his talents and blended his style into contemporary music. Whatever work Sinatra has done, it is still Sinatra. And Sinatra at his worst is still better than some artists at their best.

This may not be one of Sinatra's better albums, but it certainly isn't his worst, if there is such a thing as a bad Sinatra album. The numbers here are contemporary and Sinatra gives fine performances here.

I've noticed that some reviewers didn't like "Mrs. Robinson." I have to say that I like it, and it IS very much a Sinatra song. Sinatra took the lame Garfunkel tune and Sinatra-ized it, I like this better than the original. Sinatra sounds like he is having fun with the tune, and it's fun listening to him.

For Once In My Life is very much a Sinatra song and makes the original by Stevie Wonder sound like a remake.

As for Yesterday, I think Sinatra brings more feeling out of the song than there really is, much better than the original.

Sinatra punches out 'If You Go Away.'

A Day In the Life of A Fool, a song that should've been written for Sinatra, is the type of song that Sinatra has sang so many times before, of a lonely, broken man. He does not fail here; very moving performance.

This is a good album with solid material, it swings and mellows, and is not monotonous.

Watch What Happens, For Once In My Life, and All My Tomorrows are the

highlights here.

There are some great cuts on here: My Way, A Day in the life of a fool, If you go away and ALL MY TOMORROWS and of course FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE - one of Frank's staples in concert from 69-95.
The rest of the songs are fair at times Frank's singing sounds a bit lackluster and cold (e.g. Watch what happens). This may also be due to the extreme amount of reverb on his voice and the fact that on some songs he's in dead center in the mix. He sounds warmer on most of the ballads.
This album was co-produced by Costa and Sonny Burke and I still think Costa was the better producer.

Sure the title number is fine ,if almost too famous,since it seems many people associate Frank with only this one, and a few others. The album has only ten tracks,none really top stuff,though I give mild applause to "If You Go Away",and "A Day in the Life of a Fool". Listen to "Mrs. Robinson" once for the jokiness Frank throws in.Trouble is once is more than enough. Once again,as in many of Frank's late 60's efforts, attempting to put a fresh sound on contemporary hits just does not work,not merely because of the swing-type arrangements which sound too Las Vegas-ish,but because the available material is well on a steep decline,a decline which we can only hope is near bottom today. Also, there are a couple of other albums from the late sixties that seem to be out of print. I would recommend "Watertown " from 1970,sometimes derided,but with all new songs including a couple of gems.Trouble is this one is difficult to find too.

As a person who got their start in radio as a board op for the Sounds of Sinatra on Sunday mornings....I have to say...Frank's version of Mrs. Robinson is truly like no other. Only Frank could sing Mrs. Robinson this way and still have it sell a zillion (and one) copies. I've developed a fondness for Frank over the years....which makes me able to tolerate his version of that particular song. I am just glad that he and William Shatner never decided to team up for an LP of (very interesting versions...of previously very popular) cover songs. This would not be one of my fave Frank LPs. I prefer Frank's classics.
