"...Keep dem cards an' letters comin' in, Robin baby ..."
This may not be one of Sinatra's better albums, but it certainly isn't his worst, if there is such a thing as a bad Sinatra album. The numbers here are contemporary and Sinatra gives fine performances here.
I've noticed that some reviewers didn't like "Mrs. Robinson." I have to say that I like it, and it IS very much a Sinatra song. Sinatra took the lame Garfunkel tune and Sinatra-ized it, I like this better than the original. Sinatra sounds like he is having fun with the tune, and it's fun listening to him.
For Once In My Life is very much a Sinatra song and makes the original by Stevie Wonder sound like a remake.
As for Yesterday, I think Sinatra brings more feeling out of the song than there really is, much better than the original.
Sinatra punches out 'If You Go Away.'
A Day In the Life of A Fool, a song that should've been written for Sinatra, is the type of song that Sinatra has sang so many times before, of a lonely, broken man. He does not fail here; very moving performance.
This is a good album with solid material, it swings and mellows, and is not monotonous.
Watch What Happens, For Once In My Life, and All My Tomorrows are the
The rest of the songs are fair at times Frank's singing sounds a bit lackluster and cold (e.g. Watch what happens). This may also be due to the extreme amount of reverb on his voice and the fact that on some songs he's in dead center in the mix. He sounds warmer on most of the ballads.
This album was co-produced by Costa and Sonny Burke and I still think Costa was the better producer.

Very very poor recording. I think because it's used and song interrupted very often. It's a total lose for me. Can I return it for replacement at no charge ? Read morePublished on January 4, 2012 by Peter Kuo
This is probably Frank Sinatra's best during his second wind. Not only does he do a few standards, but also a few songs that were popular at the time the album was release. Read morePublished on July 17, 2008 by Joseph Chiampi
