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

This is probably the best compilation of Sinatra songs available. Cole Porter's romantic wit, Nelson Riddle's sense of timing, and Sinatra's voice combined in these cuts in a way not bettered in the history of pop music. And because of the continuity of composer and arranger, there is a seamless flow to the collection. This CD contains the original 1953 version of "I've Got You under My Skin. That's the one that retains the intro with the incredible phrase "When I'm out on a quiet spree, fighting that old ennui" and the reference to cocaine--both of which were axed in the 1962 Neal Hafti-arranged cut. Another reason to hear Frank sing Cole is that these songs were recorded between 1953 and 1960, when he experienced his greatest heartbreak (Ava), his biggest defeat (losing his voice), and his biggest triumph (receiving an Oscar). This is a wise singer singing wise songs. --Karen Croft

This is a fantastic CD that any fan of pop standards should enjoy.

FRANK has often said that he considered JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS one of the trickest songs to sing.

I have had this album for a long time and enjoy listening to it every time.

Frank Sinatra Sings The Select Cole Porter is a fabulous CD of Frank singing some of the very best Cole Porter tunes. The CD has great artwork and the quality of the sound is excellent. This is a must have for Frank Sinatra fans and people who appreciate Cole Porter are going to like this album, too.

"I've Got You Under My Skin" starts the CD with Sinatra swinging brightly to make this a very special number. The brass really works and the strings sound great; and the percussion and horns also help to mark the beat. Frank's voice is clear, strong and full of that ever-confident masculine warmth that made so many people love his singing. "I Concentrate On You" is a major highlight of this album; Frank again swings brightly to make this grand and he never sings a superfluous note! The brass shines and the number overall is remarkably upbeat and very positive. Frank sings this with lots of feeling and that enhances this ballad, too. Similarly, "What Is This Thing Called Love" is another spectacular number; Frank sings this slower tempo ballad with great sensitivity and I really like "What Is This Thing Called Love."

"You Do Something To Me" reverts to another positive tune that is rather splashy and glitzy; the signature Frank Sinatra charm and style carry him through this ballad and it all works so well; it's absolutely terrific. Frank was born to bat songs like this straight out of the ballpark; these songs showcase Cole Porter's and Sinatra's talents combined. "Anything Goes" features Frank squarely front and center--right where he belongs! "Anything Goes" still sounds great all these years later; this is a prime example of a classic pop vocal song. Great!

With the current movie "Delovely" out, any serious Cole Porter fan must check out Old Blue Eyes Select Edition!. Everyone song here is top notch, but 6 are unsurpassed, without question the best versions ever done! They are (1) "I've Got You under My Skin" (usually ranking among the handful of top Frank songs), "What is this Thing Called Love", here done as a yearning ballad, (3) "Anything Goes", a real riot!,(4) "Just One Of Those Things", with one of the snappiest, trickiest arrangements ever! (5) a supercharged "Night and Day", and (6)"From this Moment On", perhaps a lesser known tune that completely blows away any other version I've heard! Top Frank and Nelson doing some of Mr. Porter's timeless best!

Who cares if this cd is a package of PORTER's songs that SINATRA recorded during his years with CAPITOL?The important here is that you have a collection that you'll want to play often because it's a gasser.Try to find a better version of I'VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN is virtually impossible.The added tracks are from the movies HIGH SOCIETY and CAN CAN.The fact that NELSON RIDDLE arranged and conducted all these songs tells a lot about his natural feeling for the music of COLE PORTER.FRANK has often said that he considered JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS one of the trickest songs to sing.I've always liked MIND IF I MAKE LOVE TO YOU and YOU'RE SENSATIONAL because SINATRA sang them to GRACE KELLY in HIGH SOCIETY.Lucky fellow!

Cole Porter was one of the greatest songwriters of 20th century. Frank Sinatra was one of the greatest performers of 20th century. So, must I write more?
On this compilation you will find songs from Sinatra Sings For Swingin' Lovers (I've Got You Under My Skin, Anything Goes), High Society soundtrack (Mind If I Make Love To You, You're Sensational), A Swingin' Affair! (Night And Day, You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To, At Long Last Love, From This Moment On), Can-Can (I Love Paris, C'est Magnifique).
But even if you have all this albums, this one you should by too.

Does the author of this review not know that the song she is writing about is "I Get a Kick Out of You"? Or was the review just poorly written?
Either way, I am not even sure how to address the opinion of the reviewer that has attacked this work. If there has ever been a singer that swung easier than Sinatra then I desperately encourage you to tell me who they might be. I suppose there will always be people who just don't get it. Going OVER THE TOP is not a trademark of Sinatra my friend. Knowing this I will simply say that with Sinatra it is hard to go wrong when he was singing in the 40-60's.
Ella was amazing but I see no evidence of her bettering Sinatra at his best. "Under my Skin".....Sinatra toys with.., "Kick out of you", Sinatra carries..."This Thing Called Love", Sinatra contemplates, "You Do Something To Me" Sinatra rides the waves....ect...ect...ect... Many experts have noted Sinatra's ability to internalize a song and make it his own. You do not see this ability very often!
