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

Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded 50th Anniversary edition of this 1961 album including two bonus tracks. Ring-A-Ding Ding was The Chairman of the Board's remarkable first album for his very own Reprise record label. Recorded at a time when he was running the Rat Pack, it's no coincidence that the album is named after one of his favorite phrases of the era. Ring-a-Ding Ding perfectly captures the atmosphere of Sinatra in 1961, but it is a joy and completely fascinating to listen to at any time, in any era.

Customer Reviews

This reissue corrects that and shows what a masterpiece Frank's first reprise album is.
Karen L. Haight
From the swinging title tune to end, Sinatra swings as well with Johnny Mandel's arrangements as he did with Riddle's.
Dennis W. Wong
Nonetheless, even at a dollar per song, this is one of the best investments for entertainment you can make.
Sarah Bellum

A major reason Sinatra peeled away from Capitol Records in 1961 to form his new Reprise label was to work with a variety of arrangers with innovative styles. "Ring-a-Ding-Ding" was the maiden album he recorded for his new enterprise, and what a debut it was! Johnny Mandel's jazz-infused arrangements proved a perfect foil for Sinatra, who at this point was still at his peak of vocal abilities. As was their custom for a number of Sinatra's albums over these years, Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn composed the title track for their long-time buddy, and it certainly sets the tone for this varied and very swinging program. Old standards such as Irving Berlin's "Be Careful, It's My Heart" and "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" are revitalized with Mandel's winning charts, while a pair of Cole Porter gems, "In the Still of the Night" and "Easy to Love" find Sinatra and Mandel in full sympathy, producing results that are at once swinging and sophisticated. The light-heartedness continues with the witty "Coffee Song" and intoxicating readings of Harold Arlen's "Let's Fall in Love" and the Kern/Fields classic "A Fine Romance." During the same session, they also recorded an excellent rendition of "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart," which was cut from the final album release, since it was a thirteenth and "odd man out" track. Thankfully, it survived the intervening years and was included in several of Sinatra's Reprise retrospective collections. It is unfortunate Sinatra collaborated with Mandel for just this single occasion. They display real rapport here, and produced one of Sinatra's best albums of his Reprise era...actually, one of his best...period...

This record launched Frank's Reprise years and what a debut! Five stars isn't sufficient for an album that contains some of the great vocal tracks ever sung by Sinatra. This is an album where you can put it on, hit play and never fast forward, all the songs are eminently Sinatraesque and exuberant. "The Coffee Song" is fantastic, "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" is another sleeper but as catchy as anything Sinatra ever sang. The highlight of this album is undoubtedly the title track, "Ring a Ding Ding," it's a never-ending joy to listen to this song, it will always make you happy.
If you love Sinatra, you will already have had this on vinyl and cassette (maybe even eight track). If you're new to Frank, don't hesitate one moment: grab it and listen to it for the rest of your life.

Ring-a-Ding Ding! is yet another fine album from The Chairman Of The Board, Mr. Frank Sinatra. This is, as you may already know, Frank's first record for his own label called Reprise Records; and he certainly is in excellent form throughout! The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is great! This is sure to be a great CD for any Frank Sinatra fan.

The album begins with the title song, "Ring-A-Ding-Ding." Frank sounds absolutely upbeat and even joyous on this tune; and he delivers this tune with sensitivity and lots of positive energy at once! The musical arrangement uses that big band `60s style that works so well for numbers like this one; and I'm sure you're going to love this terrific tune. "Let's Fall In Love" features Frank squarely in the spotlight--and that's completely for our benefit! Frank sings this very well with a lot of happiness in his voice; his excellent diction enhances his performance and the natural beauty of this ballad as well. "Be Careful, It's My Heart" shines brighter thank both silver and gold together as Frank sings this out with panache; I'm very impressed--what a strong beginning for Frank on his own record label!!!

"A Foggy Day" sounds fresh and new when Frank delivers this so sensitively; and the melody is very pretty and rather upbeat again! Listen also for "In The Still Of The Night;" "In The Still Of The Night" has Frank belting this one straight out of the ballpark and that's all right by me! This tune was made for Frank to sing it and the big band arrangement uses the brass and the percussion very well.

As a die hard Sinatra collector, I will limit my review ONLY to the quality of the remastering. So if you are not a Sinatra collector, you can safely skip my review. My fellow Sinatraphiles, Mark Blackburn and Ted Pastuszak, I expect comments from both of you after you read this.

As a long time collector, this album has always been a bone of contention in terms of sound quality. The LP's always sounded brittle, muffled with weak stereo seperation. The first cd incarnation had the same sonic deficiencies and as well as the edition on the Complete Reprise Box Set. In fact, under critical listening, you can hear some signal dropouts for "In The Still Of The Night" on these old editions. So comes the 20 bit issue in 1998. Much improved over the old one. Frank's voice is more upfront, more bass response, but there is a lack of brightness and 'bite' to the orchestra. I also own a rare mono LP copy. Granted that it's mono, there is not much sense of orchestral space, but Frank's voice is nice and natural with pleasant studio reverberation that good studio recordings should have. But this is not an accurate comparison since it's not a stereo issue. I'm also forunate to own the RARE original open reel tape copy, with the original cover, which was produced when this album was first released. It is here that I will make the sound comparison. If you own the original cd issues, or the previously issued LP's from the past, this CD is a HUGE improvement in sound. But what has plagued this album since it's cd issue is that the channels are reversed from any of the original LP and tape issues. From it's first issue on CD, the brass is on the left and saxes on the right. But on open reel tape and the original LP issues, the brass is on the right with saxes on the left.
