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

Amazon.com

Christmas probably sounded a lot like this in Hoboken, circa the late 1930s: A skinny kid with a huge voice leading friends through favorite carols like "The Little Drummer Boy" and "Greensleeves." Fast forward and that skinny kid is no longer just another voice in the crowd. All ears are turned his way as he croons through a whole new set of Christmas standards, from "The Christmas Waltz" to "I Wouldn't Trade Christmas." Sinatra is in fine voice on this 13-song set, which boasts some of the better arrangements you'll hear on a seasonal album. --David Sprague

This release is worth five stars without a doubt. I have all of Sinatra's Christmas releases but this one is the best. This compilation contains Christmas standards and "newer" tunes (for their time). Although I normally don't review each song, this album is worth the effort
1. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - This is a warm, Christmas classic done in a traditional fashion as only Sinatra can do.
2. Old Fashioned Christmas - This song makes you long for Christmas in less complicated times. Beautiful song!
3. I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day - Another Christmas standard done as only Sinatra can do them.
4. Little Drummer Boy - This song is a pure delight. This song is perhaps the most reverant Sinatra ever sounded.
5. Go Tell It On The Mountain - Sintra and Bing Crosby do an excellent version of this gospel / Christmas classic. This is pure fun, and the listener can tell that Sintra and Bing are having a ball with this one.
6. We Wish You The Merriest - Another Sinatra and Bing delight. This one really gets the listener in the Christmas mood.
7. Whatever Happened To Christmas - This is one of my all-time favorite Sinatra songs. Although it is somewhat out of place following such a festive song as "We wish you the merriest," this is a very well crafted and well delievered song. It reminds me of the "Let Me Try Again" album.
8. Twelve Days Of Christmas - This is a family sing-along of a classic song with re-written lyrics. With its 1960s feel it's fun and gets the listener in the Christmas spirit.
9. Bells Of Christmas (Greensleeves)- Any song set to Greensleeves is a great song in my book. This is another Sinatra family sing-along, with Frank Jr. doing a wonderful job sounding very much like his father.

3.0 out of 5 stars sintara album so so December 8, 1999
Format:Audio CD
the Sinatra Christmas album recorded in the 60's and in the 70's is a so-so effort. The quality is excellant as the album has been digitally remasterd. Tracks 1 through 6 are Frank at his finest but after that the album takes an unfortunate turn. Isolating tracks 1 thru 6 we get Sinatra doing a wonderful job on Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Old Fashioned Christmas and an absolute one-of-a-kind job on I heard the Bells on Christmas Day....as far as I am concerned there have been no other versions of this song that even come close to matching it (although Bing's version is very close). Speaking of Bing Crosby, Frank and he are incredible on Go Tell it on the Mountain, and we Wish You the merriest Christmas. It is obvious they are having fun and it comes through in their two numbers.After track 6 the album is all over the place, is takes an unfortunate turn for the worse, a personal touch on the 12 days of Christmas just doesn't make the grade. Sinatra fans should get this album for the first 6 tracks, they are quite comparable to his other two Christmas album offering, but somewhere after track 6, the album loses it's direction. If you are chosing just one Frank album make it the jolly christmas from Frank it's the best of all his X-mas recordings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oy! December 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Frank Sinatra never recorded an entire Christmas album for Reprise Records, but this CD compiles all the Christmas songs he recorded for that record label. Songs are taken from an album he recorded with Bing Crosby and Fred Waring, an album he recorded with his three kids, and a handful of singles. Most of the material is good, but there are a few weak songs here, especially among the ones he recorded with his children. Still, it's very complete, and well worth getting if you're a Sinatra fan.

By Steve
Format:Audio CD
If you're looking for a Frank Sinatra holiday music collection post 1960, then this album was the only way to go, until 2004 that is. This album has since been superceded by the 2004 Reprise set "The Christmas Collection". "The Christmas Collection" has all thirteen tracks that the "The Sinatra Christmas Album" contained (albeit fully remastered), plus an additional five tracks (four of which were previously unreleased):

- "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm" (recorded on December 21, 1960 and taken from the 1961 Reprise album "Ring-A-Ding Ding!")
- "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" (a recording taken from the Sinatra TV special "Happy Holidays with Bing & Frank" that aired on December 20, 1957)
- "The Christmas Song" (a duet with Bing Crosby that aired on the same 12/20/1957 TV special as the above track)
- "White Christmas" (another duet with Bing Crosby that aired on the same 12/20/1957 TV special as the two above tracks)
- "Silent Night" (vocals recorded by Frank on August, 27 1991; orchestral track recorded on March 23, 2004)

If you're looking for a Frank Sinatra holiday album that contains a majority of the tracks in stereo sound, then get "The Christmas Collection" (or a used copy of "The Sinatra Christmas Album" if you can find one). But I personally still prefer Sinatra's 1957 holiday album that he recorded for Capitol Records ("A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra"), which was arranged by Gordon Jenkins (even though it's entirely in mono sound). Sinatra's other holiday collection that's still in print (the 1994 Sony compilation "Christmas Songs by Sinatra") contains the holiday tracks he recorded for Columbia Records during the 1940s, and it's also a good set, but still not quite on par with his 1957 Capitol Records holiday album.
