Editorial Reviews

The defining voice of the 20th century, Frank Sinatra enjoyed a legendary recording career that spanned six decades, beginning with his earliest session in 1939 and culminating with his last in 1993, for his world-renowned, multi-platinum Duets and Duets II albums. Ultimate Sinatra presents key recordings spanning the Chairman of the Board s recordings for Columbia, Capitol and Reprise, together for the first time. Ultimate Sinatra opens with 'All Or Nothing At All,' recorded with Harry James and his Orchestra on August 31, 1939 during Sinatra's first studio session. Ultimate Sinatra's 4CD edition boasts 100 tracks celebrating 100 years (plus a never before released bonus track), including many more luminous recordings that reinforce Sinatra's well-deserved moniker, The Voice. The chronological collection dives deeper into Sinatra's musical world of iconic recordings, before closing with a previously unreleased rehearsal version of 'The Surrey With The Fringe On Top' recorded in 1979. The deluxe edition also features an 80-page booklet with a new essay by Sinatra historian and author Charles Pignone, as well as rare photos and quotes from Frank Sinatra and his children, Nancy, Tina and Frank Jr., as well as Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Quincy Jones, and others.

This collection would have been better if it went for deeper cuts, as a more in-depth companion to the single disc version. For example, tracks like When I Lost You and a few concert versions of key songs like Night and Day. Still, the music on these four discs is undeniably stellar. New Sinatra listeners will love this. It covers 1939 to 1979 - 40 years of masterful music by the greatest symbol of the 20th Century American Dream. Every track is music at its most artful and timeless. Sinatra had amazing, superb taste, and was a genius at fully realizing the total potential of the songs he so carefully selected to record. The reviewer who gave this set 1 star is being very nit picky about what is obviously a great representation of Sinatra's music. Sure, hardcore Sinatraphiles such as myself always want to hear more previously unreleased Sinatra music, and Sinatra's catalog of recordings is so vast that even 100 recordings is super-difficult to narrow it down to. But the bottom line is: this is 5 star music all the way (I'd give it 100 stars if I could). Loads of value for the price (because it really is priceless music/art that we are lucky to have access to - and there are hundreds and hundreds of other recordings by Sinatra that must be explored, if the music on this set moves you).

With his 100th birthday fast approaching, it was inevitable that Frank Sinatra’s 60+ year recording output would be anthologized for the umpteenth time, with the obligatory ‘unreleased track’ or two included to entice hardcore fans, along with the promise of remastered sound and other goodies.

“Ultimate Sinatra” is available in several different editions, the most extensive being the four disc collection that covers 1943-1979. This is the first time material from all three of Sinatra’s labels (Columbia, Capitol, and Reprise) are included on the same collection, and it’s also the first time many of these tracks have had any significant remastering efforts, so that alone makes this a worthy purchase.

The collection is certainly not perfect; as pointed out in at least one other review, the Capitol years are especially missing some essential performances (“Lonely Town” from “Where Are You,” “Grenada” from “Swing Along with Me,” “Prisoner of Love” from “Sinatra & Strings,” and “Soliloquy” from “The Concert Sinatra” come to mind immediately), and in some cases inferior versions of song Sinatra did better later on somehow made the cut (“Night and Day” and “The Song is You” both should’ve been represented by the Reprise takes). Also, I know it’s almost written in stone that every career spanning collection should end with “New York, New York,” but Frank still made new music right up until 1988, including one album of superior quality (“She Shot Me Down”) that deserves to be represented, as well as a wealth of orphaned tracks that are hard to find nowadays (“Searching,” “The Girls I Never Kissed,” “My Foolish Heart”).

Thisn is a great set representing the Voice's entire career-a first....mastering is fine. Only non content complaint is packaging discs slipped into cardboard pockets and easy to sctrach I got mine out unblemished and stored them in jewel cases but as a set this is 5 star all the way.

UMG’s Ultimate Sinatra box set was one of the few CD releases this year I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. And unfortunately, my hopes were put too high.
Ultimate Sinatra delivers what the hardcore Sinatra fans would have expected from a comprehensive four-label-wide box set: fifty percent Capitol with little wiggle room for the rest… Only three songs from Sinatra’s big band tenure (2 from Dorsey, and “All Or Nothing At All” from James). If that is UMG’s idea of “comprehension,” then I am no longer excited for Sinatra’s CD reissues under the blanket label. Their vinyl reissues however are something of a marvel—they’re making too many as it would have it!
The set list here is superb, but again, the Capitol percent is too much for my taste, considering the set leaves out several masterful songs. (below is a list of several Capitol numbers left out.)
01. I See Your Face Before Me
02. I Thought About You
03. It Could Happen To You
04. There’s a Flaw In My Flue (Of course!)
05. Night and Day (instead is the “show opening” version from Columbia which is still good)
06. Oh! Look at Me Now!
07. Lonely Town
08. There’s No You
09. On the Road to Mandalay
10. Autumn in New York
11. Let’s Get Away From It All
12. Willow Weep for Me
13. Blues In the Night
14. Ebb Tide
15. Angel Eyes
16. Day In – Day Out (from Come Dance With Me!)
17. The Song Is You
18. Where Do You Go?
19. How Deep Is the Ocean?
20. Memories of You (Instead we get the faulty Songs for Swingin’ Lovers! outtake)
And these songs are just from the albums… Only the Lonely and Come Fly with Me were particularly butchered in this set.
