The Best of Frank Sinatra: A Home Taping Special

Chris Ingham, MOJO, 1999

BECAUSE OF THE near-flawless nature of a handful of albums (Wee Small Hours, Songs For Swingin' Lovers, A Swingin' Affair, Only The Lonely), it would have been tempting to tape half of each and leave it there. However, for a more faithful representation of the range of the man's musical achievements, we've restricted ourselves to no more than one track from any album.

Total word count of piece: 1986
