5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one!, June 29, 2011
This review is from: Songs for Young Lovers / Swing Easy (Audio CD)
I have been a Sinatra fan most of my life, since the 70's. My father had just about every Sinatra record extant, so I knew most of his music as a child even before I came to appreciate it. I'm not a fanatic, and I don't think everything he did was top shelf (although most it was). I like most, if not all, periods of his music, but, if I had to pick my favorite it would be 1953 to 1956. Why? In my opinion, this is when he released the best efforts of his entire career. (I know, I can hear fans yelling "What about "Only the Lonely" or "September of my Years"!!!) Well, they are exceptional works of art, but, between 1953 and 1956 Sinatra released Songs for Young Lovers, Songs for Swingin Lovers, In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning and Songs for Swinging Lovers, in my opinion, the most accessible and enjoyable music of his entire career. I would recommend anyone who doesn't own any Sinatra start with this CD. The song selection, the singing and the arrangements are all excellent as is the singing. His hits collections? They're good for parties, but this is the real deal.
