Editorial Reviews

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Frank Sinatra's groundbreaking and highly successful album, Duets, Capitol/UMe will release a newly-remastered Sinatra Duets - Twentieth Anniversary Super Deluxe Box Set. Perfect for the Sinatra fan and collector, this super deluxe box features:
- Duets and Duets II, newly-remastered, and for the very first time on 180-gram vinyl in a gatefold LP jacket
- Duets and Duets II, expanded and newly-remastered on 2 CDs with rare and unreleased tracks including two never-before-released recordings: 'One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)' featuring Tom Scott and 'Embraceable You' with Tanya Tucker plus the rare bonus tracks 'Fly Me to the Moon' with George Strait and two versions of 'My Way' one recorded with Luciano Pavarotti and the other with Willie Nelson.
- A standard DVD featuring new interviews, the official Duets EPK and a promo video for the I've Got You Under My Skin duet with Bono.
- A 20-page LP-sized booklet with rare photos and both the original and brand new liner notes.
- Plus an exclusive, stamped lithograph.

This special edition comes complete in an elegant 12 inch square box featuring a brand new cover with a gold foil-stamped title.

Referred to as 'The Recording Event of the Decade,' the certified 3x-platinum Duets brought together an array of global superstars including Charles Aznavour, Anita Baker, Tony Bennett, Bono, Natalie Cole, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin, Kenny G, Julio Iglesias, Liza Minnelli, Carly Simon, Barbra Streisand and Luther Vandross for an album of standards including many songs instantly associated with the 'Chairman of the Board.' Duets made history for its cutting-edge recording techniques, its renowned stars and for being one of the top selling albums of 1993 putting the then 77-year-old Sinatra at the No. 2 spot on the Billboard charts between Pearl Jam's Vs. and Meatloaf's Bat Out Of Hell II.

The highly successful follow-up, Duets II, was released the following year. Duets II includes Jimmy Buffett, Neil Diamond, Lena Horne, Chrissie Hynde, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Patti LaBelle, Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme, Luis Miguel, Lorrie Morgan, Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Jon Secada, Frank Sinatra Jr., and Stevie Wonder & Gladys Knight. Once again, Sinatra celebrated a top ten record with Duets II charting at No. 9 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart.

As a youngster, I always associated Frank Sinatra's music as not being in step with the times. As I entered adulthood, I soon realized the error of my ways - that Frank Sinatra is one of the great artists of all time. Recently, I listed what I thought were the Top 10 musical acts of the 20th Century. I had The Beatles #1 and I had Frank Sinatra #2. I don't think this assessment was far off - after all, how many artists have a weekly music show (i.e. "Saturday with Sinatra") dedicated to them? However, in the world where the radio airwaves are dominated by Rock and Pop stars, Frank's greatness often gets overlooked. Sinatra wasn't a Rock Star, but a true Pop Star. His music could often transcend musical boundaries. Sinatra's "Duets" album provides a way to bridge Frank's greatness with what is being played on the musical airwaves. On "Duets", Frank sings duets with some of the best contemporary artists out there.

For some reason, I think "Duets" often gets a bad rap. Many people did not like this album. I found this a very enjoyable album. It contains 13 tracks (actually 15 songs becuse " two songs are medleys of two songs). All of these tracks are classic Frank Sinatra tunes. On each track, Frank is "paired" with a Contemporary Music Artist that will sing a duet with Frank. With some clever production work from producer Phil Ramone, the end result is a great product. However, there are two reasons I can see where some of the protest comes from this album: First up, this was one of the last albums that Frank would make (it was released in 1993). Clearly, one this collection, Frank is well past his peak - and you can hear it in his voice.

Great art this album is not, nor does it ever try to be. For us Sinatra diehards, it is a nice chance to hear the elder Frank, maybe vocally challenged, but musically on top. Of course I wish that he had recorded solo at this stage, but the fact is that he didn't ...so this is what we have. I disagree with critics who claim that these Duets damaged his legacy. While they are not classic Sinatra, no damage was done because he always rises above the mediocre. I can see some disliking this album, but I honestly don't think that many will be disgusted by it. There are high moments on it such as...What Now My Love with Aretha Franklin...Frank is powerful and sounds like he's very into this song. "Come Rain or Come Shine" with Gloria Estefan is also wonderful and the singer does well. Sinatra is in command with raw, exposed energy. The "voice" may sound frail at times, but the emotion, energy, and persona is wholly intact. The cut that ironically is most successful is one that is not actuallly a duet (that says something, doesn't it) is One For My Baby. Schlock Saxman Kenny G, provides a solo intro to the song and then... Sinatra begins his storytelling to Joe the bartender and it's magic. It is not only great for this album...it's an important addition to Sinatra's musical songbook. His reading here is so emotional that you feel as if he might breakdown and cry at any moment. You hear the ravages of time and age, and the final plea of a lonely man begging one last time for somebody to drown the torch that is consuming him. While he sings, Kenny G only adds a few inconsequential licks here and there that neither add nor detract anything from the song. If you are dead set against the duets and the concept of them, then spare the price of this album for "One for My baby" . It is well worth it...It choked me up. The night I heard Sinatra had died, I played this track.....and yes, this 26 yr old man cried.

Ever since this album appeared in 1993, after the initial glow wore off, the knives came out to shred Sinatra and his Duets offering.
I am so unbelievably sick and tired of these alleged Sinatra "fans" pouring forth their venom upon an album which, you know what folks, really is not all that bad. Shock of shocks, if you really LISTEN to the album without analyzing every note and musical substructure, it is actually quite a pleasure.
No, this is not the Frank Sinatra of the continually fawned over Capitol years or even that of his early Reprise careers. That Sinatra was technically flawless on virtually everything he recorded, while at the same time being able to inject his music with emotional power.
The Sinatra of Duets and Duets II is not as technically perfect as the man of decades (yes, DECADES) past, but what he lacked in 1993 in form and phrasing is more than made up for in wisdom and emotion.
Why is it that Sinatra in particular is always attacked for getting older and for not being the singer he was 30-40 years earlier. Other performers don't suffer that same fate. Tony Bennett was and is a superb singer, but have you listened to the man lately, he is not exactly the same one who made I Left My Heart in San Francisco a hit 40 years ago. However, how often is he criticized or attacked for the ravages time has inflicted on his voice, rarely. Instead, the critics chirp about how great his new more fully jazz style is. No such reprive for Frank Sinatra.
Those Sinatra fans who can not appreciate the full scope of Sinatra's career have missed the boat.
